1080p monitor suddenly running @ 2715x1527

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

OK, so I posted this to reddit's r/techsupport, but I also wanted to post here to get other opinions as well.

I did nothing in the way of settings changes, yet when I woke up today my normally 1920x1080 monitor was able to run at 2715x1527, I am mainly wondering what caused this and what would be the drawbacks, so far there haven't been problems game wise, performance is the same and I haven't had lag/stuttering/screen tearing other than what I have already seen @ 1080p. The monitor isn't overheating and I haven't checked the FPS on Skyrim yet, but I played it for a bit and didn't notice anything different.

Your gpu is super sampling so you will get noticeable graphics improvement just requiring more gpu horsepower on the drawback side

Linus has a vid on it

Do you know how pixels work? They are Hardware in your monitor.

You are "super sampling".

The thing is, I haven't touched my settings other than the resolution, so why would it do this out of the blue. But I must say the replies were more effective than r/techsupport so thanks! And for those wondering, no I believe that I have no idea how pixels work.

Software can do weird things like changing settings becouse of Reasons while

Hardware remains constant, It only breaks.
