Do some TV's just not NATIVELY support 1080P?
I noticed a while back that I was able to set my desktop to 1920x1080. And when I did, wow, was it sharp... it seemed to look like more of a native resolution than the (advertised native) 1360x768 that I usually have my desktop and games set to.
I thought nothing of it. Then I was playing GOW for the first time in a while (trying to defeat General RAAM on hardcore... I finally did it!), and I was playing around with my video settings... and I thought what the heck, so I set the resolution to 1920x1080.
And wow. I was able to enjoy the end boss fight at a much higher than usual resolution!
What gives? This TV is just a 26" Sanyo that I bought at Wal-Mart for $500 last year! ... and FWIW I was able to enjoy the higher resolution by pulling up my chair a bit close to the entertainment center.
... and I did do a PrintScreen just to confirm the screen size.
Anyone else ever encounter this? I'm kinda wondering now what would happen if I set my desktop to 1920x1080, hooked up a BD drive and popped Transformers in.
