65-inch 1080p Gaming with the MSI 8800 GTX
We decided to take a quick break from the norm here at HotHardware and dive into some big-screen gaming. When we think of flagship cards like the MSI 8800 GTX, widescreen, high-definition gaming inevitably comes to mind. We just had to hook the card up to a 65-inch Mitsubishi 1080p DLP TV and show you what it looks like. Enjoy!
For those of you who don't know, 1080p is equivalent to the resolution of 1920x1080, which is a 16:9 widescreen resolution. It's hard to portray how cool 65 inches of gaming is, but we hope these pictures at least do it some justice.
For reference, there is a stack of CDs on the left speaker (yeah, we know we need to clean up), and in the lower left hand corner, you can see the top of a SilverStone HTPC case (it's silver). The TV we hooked the test rig up to has a DVI input, so the picture looks absolutely crystal clear.
After we stopped gawking, we got back to practical duties and set off to benchmark the MSI 8800 GTX at 1920x1080 with a few games. You can see the results of those tests below.
We were happy to see the MSI 8800 GTX post playable scores in all three sets of tests. We suddenly feel a compelling urge to wrap this up so we can get back to 65-inch 1080p gaming. You can't really blame us, right?
