Had rift about a mth now... just got a display port adapter to plug tv in too but decided to try rift in it first - picture quality is FAR FAR FAR superior to using hdmi port!! Try it.
How exactly is the image quality better?Had rift about a mth now... just got a display port adapter to plug tv in too but decided to try rift in it first - picture quality is FAR FAR FAR superior to using hdmi port!! Try it.
I find it hard to belive. I will try it out but it's still not technically possible. First of displayport has hdmi compatibility built in to it. It can send hdmi signals. However a displayport can't magically boost the transfer rate of a hdmi signal. There's a hard cap because of the hardware. Displayport generally have more pins than hdmi and thus higher transferspeeds. Those pins are not used when using a display to hdmi cable.Its alot clearer and seems smoother, im running a 1080fe/ i7 4770k /32gb ram and it was smooth and clear before but i noticed a hell of a difference as soon as i put the rift on using a display port adapter to hdmi. Hard to explain but it really did make a big difference.
From what ive read, display ports are faster than hdmi ports - could be this making the difference - being able to send more data through the port itself.
if that is true, its back to dark night sides on planets... Just picked up the adapter. Cant wait.Could possibly be due to color profile used. Perhaps the HDMI is using 4:2:2 color, or YUV maybe, and the displayport is using proper 4:4:4 color. Many TVs have this problem when used on computers because the driver tries to be 'too smart.' The way the Rift is hidden from display adapters doesnt help the situation.
Slightly intriguing, but I never had a problem with how my Rift looks... except for the horrible aliasing in games. Which has nothing to do with this.
