[quotemsg=19581122,0,59887]The 570 and 580 are priced too close together, just like the 470 and 480 were. [/quotemsg]The pricing is fine. They perform close together, too. Either save some cash and get a 4GB x70 model or get an overclocked 8GB x80 model, IMHO.
[quotemsg=19581367,0,2436718]What do they mean by 1440p? I've seen Tom's review from earlier in the day on a Sapphire 580 card where they tested 1080p and the lower 1440p resolution which would be 2460x1440. They do not distinguish between that or the 3440x1440 which is also 1440p but is 30% more pixels that the card has to push. Tech journalists have to stop being lazy and not getting specific on these things. It's like saying 4k. 4k what? There are several different resolutions and specifications that all go by the name 4k, at least they aren't nearly as different as the 2 1440p resolutions.[/quotemsg]
1080p is 1920 x 1080. That's a 16:9 ratio, by far the most common ratio today and essentially the current "standard" ratio (though it is technically widescreen). So when discussing 1080p vs 1440p, it should be obvious they're not changing ratios unless specified. So taking that 16:9 ratio and extrapolating it to 1440p, you get 2560 x 1440. That's the 1440p being discussed. If it was the 3440 x 1440p that would be a widescreen (technically ultra widescreen) resolution and they would have specified the change in ratio (21:9) one way or another.
So rather than bash journalists for "being lazy", perhaps you should instead reflect on your own lack of knowledge. Thanks and have a wonderful day.
