I was working all day so dont know if this was posted…


#283

It’s starting to get posted everywhere now. Maybe turn it into a forum post of its own? Because the hounds will soon awaken


#284

Thx sorry…im late to party…dam work getting the way of the fun…


#285

sucks to be you( caracter no. four big daddy)


#286

of note, sebastian made a casual remark about the ‘leaks’ and mentioned along the lines of taking leaks where someone did not have ipd set properly with grain of salt, to paraphrase. so it sounds like at very least he has not has ipd issues.


#287

@SweViver uses IPD70. @VoodooDE tested with IPD60, if I heard it correctly.
Both working long hours.


#288

at this point i would lean on ipd issues being made up whole cloth or the result of incorrect calibration. if people can use it without issue for 70 hours at 60 and 70 ipd then the ipd probably works.


#289

Agreed, that’s way too much of a difference for the IPD mechanism not to work and have both reviewers put in so much time at this point.


#290

And if IPD works while the leakers say it didn’t, I’m gonna drop all their claims and just sit this all out. Like a good boy.


#291

question it’s been bugging me Is it Capable of super sampling ?

I mean how would it even be possible When it’s not even rendering at native resolution .


#292

It’s the bandwidth that limits the resolution, whatever you do on the GPU side is your rigs limit


#293

OK got it but I can’t imagine a supersampled ,upscaled image looking natural … “ but what do I know”?


#294

Pimax has its own render multiplier.

Upscaled downdanpled the upscaled


#295

Well to a layman it just sounds like you’re back to square one Given your example that is :point_up:️ LOL


#296

What do you mean by upscale downdanpled upscale lol…? I feel like there’s a typo in there


#297

Essentially when you supersample, the image is downsampled to the displays native input.

In the case of the pimax 4k & 8k the native input resolution is less than the panel’s native resolution.

So say SS to 4k uhd 38402160 is downsampled to qhd 25601440. Then the scaling chip upscaled the image to the panel’s native Resolution of 3840*2160.

Hope that explains it. Essentially the SS image should create a better quality image than a native qhd image (reducing the need to Anti alias).


#298

So it’s bascially the same as steamvr’s supersampling right? But changing supersampling settings in steamvr settings doesn’t change anything and that’s what piplay does…correct?


#299

Correct. At keast this how the 4k functions & the 5k/8k should be the same.


#300

Are we positive on that? Given the SteamVR tracking employed I was hoping the 8K reported natively as a SteamVR device without the need for a 3rd party driver…
