DSR for the desktop is there any hope ?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Ok I have a 4k ctfmon lol,  and I can get it to 8k but its soo tiny,,,,  at 6k things look amazing just the fonts are fuked up.  I cant imagine if you can do DSR with perfect fonts.  Then no body would buy a 4k monitor or 8k .. they would just use DSR.  I know DSR is only meant for games,, but the desktop looks soo sexy at 6k resolution,  its just the fonts get botched.  You think in the future we can have DSR for desktop and no fuked up fonts ?

Welcome to Nvidia's version of superscaling? Theirs has always been inferior to AMDs version in my experience in the "actually having the scaled output look decent" department.

Oh ya in games its flawless, its just the font issue,,, sighs,,,, wishful thinking I guess.

Assuming you're running 100% scaling to begin with, activating DSR or VSR effectively lets you get under 100%, which of course is going to make everything even more pixelated.  There's no avoiding that.

Thanks Ryan,  wishful thinking it is I guess.  :(

The idea with games is it renders at a higher res then downscales to make things that would otherwise have hard edges a bit smoother, like they would look with proper AA.  The equivalent on the desktop would require you to double your scaling factor (or whatever ratio is appropriate), so that like when it's used in games, everything stays the same size.  On the desktop there's really no point to this however.  Things are already optimized to look as good as possible at whatever res you are using, so if you want things smoother, you will need a higher res display, and then just turn up scaling on that.  The only real practical use for VSR/DSR on the desktop is to get more screen real estate to work on, with the trade off being, as I said, everything being pixelated and hard to read as you effectively end up running 50% scaling.

Great explanation.  I guess Im good with 4k I have been using since 2014.  Anything lower and things are huge on the screen and no real estate.  How long it will take for a 8k monitor to hit mainstream only God knows...  Im a resolution freak that's all.

Probably a very long time.  They exist now but then, 4K has existed since at least 2001 and it's still not exactly catching on like wildfire, so I would guess it'll be at least a decade before it's common, if it even is ever.

4k has like a 0.2% usage rate, safe to say drivers aren't prioritized for it, the amount of small issues with 4k/hdr is pretty bad.
