Is Upgrading From 1080p to 1440p Worth It?

In recent years, there has been a growing trend towards upgrading to higher-resolution displays. With 1080p monitors being the standard for many years, many users are now considering upgrading to 1440p displays.

However, the question remains: is it worth upgrading from 1080p to 1440p? In this article, we will explore the differences between these resolutions and evaluate whether the increased resolution justifies the cost.

Is It Worth Upgrading from 1080P to 1440P

1440p compared to other resolutions

It is worth upgrading from 1080P to 1440P because 1440P has almost twice the number of pixels resulting in a much clearer image.

While there is an impact on performance, it’s around a 33% reduction in framerate, depending on a number of factors.

I personally think moving from 1080P to 1440P is a night and day difference, especially a 27″ 1440P monitor.
