21:9 Monitor Good Idea?
I am running KE9NS on a Lenovo 530 laptop, it works, but I am wanting more screen real estate,
In looking at monitors, I ran across 21:9 monitors. The thinking is to use a 21:9 monitor for primary logging display and PowerSDR. I use ACLog for general purpose and N1MM for contests.
Is this a worthwhile method, or would I be better served with a pair of 16:9 displays?
Do you have the video ports to drive two monitors? Depending on your video setting you may get two normal screens on the single wide (most likely a curved screen? ) screen. Most laptops now adays have one video port , vga, digital or display port (basically a FireWire port) , now on my Lenovo T450, with the docking station , I have digital, VGA , and still have the display port on the side of the laptop itself.. Something else to consider is the processor speed, as the GPU, (Graphics Processing Unit ) is built into the Intel CPU , will take more CPU clocks to display more video over your screens.. You may run out of CPU power to run all the video and applications too, SmartSDR, N1MM, CW skimmer, to name a few..
Just some things to consider..
Fortunately, my 530 has an i7 and two display ports on the docking station.
I will do a little borrowing before buying.
