The amount of pixels rendered does not mean it is a higher resolution, if that was true then when playing a game 1280x1024 would look better than 1440x900, when it clearly doesnt.

Lol, yes i do. Look at the chart, in order from lowest to highest

List of common resolutions - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

1280x1024 is a 5:4 aspect ratio, while 1440x900 is a 16:10 aspect ratio, which is why there is less pixels displayed, but is still a higher resolution. if they were the same aspect ratio, then it would be lower.

Aspect ratio has nothing to do with the actual rendered image.

What the GPU is doing is rendering data for each pixel....more pixels = more work.

Go ahead and run 3dmark06 at 1440x900 and then at 1280x1024....which one has a significantly higher score? (indicating a lower resolution)

1440x900 does look better (subjectively speaking, and that's because it's a widescreen resolution), but it has less pixels than 1280x1024

What exactly is a higher resolution?
well, the definition of resolution in regards to pixelised images, is "pixel count"
Image resolution - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

So the higher the number of pixels, the higher the resolution is.

About 11.4% more screen resolution.

It goes 1024x768, 1440x900, 1280x1024....etc

Also in those benchmarks no AA/AF was used....
1400x900 is a lower resolution than 1280x1024... Gurusan is right...... even tho if u set your resolution if Windows it jumps from 1280 then to 1440, but 1280x1024 is a higher resolution... but ur right Apokalipse, its always great to have widescreen

Oh well, cant win em all. Good debate though, kept me entertained. I still prefer 1440x900 for playing on my lcd, untill i get a 22 incher.
