Can a 4k 144hz monitor play in 1440p/144hz?

Hi guys

 

Sorry in advance if this sounds like a noob question.

 

so I am looking at buying a EvE spectrum and I want to go for the 4k 144hz can I scale it down to 1440p and still have 144hz?

 

 

Yes but, It won't look good though. 1080p will likely look better as it can do integer scaling. 

 

However if you have a 20 series or newer Nvidia GPU then you can use DLSS2.0 to scale 1440p upto 4k which will to a much much better job than the displays internal scaling.

Interpolation will be present if you do so. If you scale it down to 1080p it will look akin to native resolution.
