Does going from a small monitor to a bigger one effect game performance?

#1xxtearg0dxxPosted 9/11/2013 1:46:01 PM
Reason I ask is because a few days ago before I bought my new monitor I was able to play Rift on High Settings with no lag on my old 19inch monitor.

Now with my new 23inch monitor I lag on High Settings..

It's not the size, it's the resolution.

Yeah I get 60 fps on my 17" 1920x1080 screen but only 35 on my 32" 1920x1080 screen. Never go more than 17-20 inches.

Unless you are changing the cable type (dvi, hdmi...) it cant have any effect.

If your resolution didn't change then there's no reason for your computer's performance to be impacted by the size of the screen. I could own a 40" screen capable of 1920x1080 and it should perform identically (from the computer's standpoint anyway) as a 24" screen at 1920x1080.

If the change in monitors also resulted in you going from 1600x900 to 1920x1080 then that could cause a difference in performance.

You're joking right? about getting half the fps on a larger screen?
