I’ve been looking at methods to connect my real hardware to the VGA CRT PC Monitor and well… they are a bit pricey. So, before I invest I was hoping to clarify something I’ve been wondering about but can’t seem to find a lot of info on.
I know it’s not a 1:1 comparison here… but is pushing out an emulated game over VGA to my CRT going to be ‘on par’, from a visual standpoint, with pumping out RGB to the same CRT from a real console?
Like I said, I know, I know that it’s not the same thing - I’m just wondering if I pull up, let’s say Sonic 2 on RetroArch via CRT Switch Res on RetroArch, and pull up Sonic 2 on my Genesis with RGB, and then flip between the inputs… am I going to notice much difference?
I’ll be doing this all someday regardless, but I don’t wanna drop the cash right now if I’m gonna get all my equipment, hook it up and go “Oh… this just looks like my emulation collection…” instead of “Oh hell yes! This looks AMAZING!”
Tl;dr - does RetroArch and RGB look the same-ish? Hoping someone with some know-how can fill me in here.
