PS4 Pro Super Sampling on or off?

Not Xim related, well it is slightly.  The super sampling on PS4 pro looks mighty fine, however, i question the performance at the expense of quality.

Are you using SS on or off?

I'm using my PS4 Pro in 4k mode, so alas, this option isn't available to me. If it looks good and you don't really notice any drops in performance though, I'd say keep it enabled.

Loved it, I used since the 5.50 Beta. No problems.

If you have a 1080p Monitor, is the way to go to taking advantage of PS4 Pro gpu.

Meh...I enable Supersampling, though don't care either way. Performance should be better with it disabled.

I turned this on. Seems really nice. Does it affect input lag or anything?

Does anyone use RGB "Full" Range on their PS4? I notice I had it on Automatic (default) and my monitor was also set to 16-235 so I changed that to 0-255 (Full). Seems better quality for sure.

I don't notice Supersampling as much as I notice Full RGB range. The blacks are noticeably blacker with richer tones throughout the spectrum. The screen needs to support it, but if it does, it's a nice boost to colour.

Sweet. Glad I changed that and got my monitor all setup now. So leave super sampling on I'm assuming to get the most of the gpu? I'm on a 1080p monitor sooooo :)

Supersampling is a trade-off between graphics and performance. Most PS4 games will behave just fine with it enabled, but if you notice the game struggling periodically with framerate issues, turn SS off.

So probably best to keep it Enabled?

Probably best to keep SS disabled, unless you see a benefit of marginally enhanced graphics.

I have it Off as I have a 4K monitor.  ::)

Seriously though, I wouldn't have bought a Pro if I hadn't got a 4K panel. All PS games are designed to play perfectly with the PS4's components at 1080p. If you want to look at a better image, upgrade your screen!

For the monitor I use, it seems to work a lot more fluid with lower overdrive settings enabled and thus have left it on ever since.

The performance for BF1 is certainly better for performance, i'm back to dominating multiple opposition trade off's.
