I have created an image from the Microsoft’s whole product portfolio in one image silverlight presentation. Now you can download and view it offline, in your favourite image viewer (mine is FastStone Image Viewer)
Many programs and games have 60FPS or 60Hz limits. These should be lifted to benefit and promote 120Hz monitors.
Steam vs Origin UI responsiveness test. I noticed Steam was slightly jerky to use, and I compared it to a similar program. Both are digital distribution services for PC games, but one is coded more natively to Windows (Origin) and the other more open source WebKit (Steam).
When an unstoppable force meets an unmovable object. This is Microsoft pushing a touch pad UI onto their desktop users. It is pixel bloat and inefficient. If they are going to make something new, it must truly be better than what it replaces.
Laptops, CRT, certain LCD desktop monitors and smartphones are capable of high PPI. This page tests this by displaying images at a smaller than their native size. That means if you open this page on a high PPI device next to a normal 96 PPI one, there will be a difference of sharpness and detail. You can try it out on “normal” monitors by using the page zoom in your browser. Zoom in to 200% and you should clearly see the diffierence in the images. The logo of my site is also higher resolution than displayed.
