This is all confusing as shit. At least for me. Looking at the 8K,
Sweviver video from Sept gives performance eval using Pitool 1.76. Says great performance and image improvement using Pitool 1.0 and Steam SS of 100% = 2903 x 2557 = 7422971 pixels. (Steam recommends 70% for his 1080ti.) (Does parallel projection play into this? PC2 requires it so I assume the added burden is in effect here?)
Now in this thread, posting mid Dec he says “yesterday” he upgraded to “.176”. Two 176 references. Is that a typo? And .176 with Steaam at 100% yields approximately (from his memory) 3500 x 3000 = 10,500,000 pixels! Gave a hint that he would verify that night.
And now mr.uu shows pixel counts of 2659 x 2342 = 6,227,378. (What version of Pitool is this?) But that 6,227,378 is with SS reduced to 36% ! Swe says don’t go lower then 70%. So what would 70% be? 12 million pixels?
Screw it. I give up! Pimax has hit me again with a notice to make my choice. I told them to send me a damn 8K. (Not using those exact words!) I guess I’ll sell it if it doesn’t work well enough for me.
It’s crunch time and with all this jumping around of Pitool specs and no performance testing late backers are hung out to dry. Sweviver, you don’t owe anybody anything but if you wait much longer your eval will be pointless.
