[quote=“neal_white_iii, post:177, topic:8629”]…The RGB subpixels do not form a square, so (to me) it still looks like an individual pixel is either green or red/blue…
I am more inclined to think of it like the other thing somebody suggested, that we do indeed have full RGB pixels, in a vertical layout, but only half the vertical resolution.
Now, one could argue that if one had to sacrifice resolution in any direction, the vertical would be it, since it is the horizontal one you need for stereopsis.
Horizontal resolution being true still won’t help the 8k, with the scaler spoiling things, so that should still take an 8kX, but you can’t help but think that if all this rings true, then: A) Is vertical resolution rendered and transmitted unnecessarily? …and B) Could that wasted bandwidth have gone into filling up detail on the horizontal instead, with a better suited scaling mode?
