2560x1080-3440x1440

what ?!!

 

The monitor always gets 2560x1080 ... you can go in video card drivers or game and set the resolution to something higher, and have the video card DOWNSCALE to 2560x1080

 

Though 2560x1080 is 2.37:1 or 21:9 while 3440x1440 is not quite 21:9 ... though close enough, it would have to be 3440x1472 to be 21:9, or something like that.

 

Don't know why you would want to play at that 3440x1440 ... other than maybe streaming reasons no idea why you'd want that.

You can try using GPU scaling

Though I imagine it would be blurry

 

Source: my experience with downsampling 1080p to 768p monitor

Things I need help with: (nothing at the moment) ❤️

Spoiler

none atm

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

For me, I tried to mirror a 1080p to my 768p monitor

Nvidia control panel refused to go above 768p, but windows display setting allowed 1080p

I didn't know what you meant by that photo, my bad

 

You could try, but it refused to do it on mine

Maybe it'll work for you

It'll likely say "input signal incompatible" or something

I never heard of anyone killing their monitor like that

 

But I've had personal experience of it damaging my monitor after long term use, but that's fiddling with refresh rate, not resolution

oh, I can live with 2560x1080 lol

The number of pixels in your LCD panel is fixed, it's 2560 x 1080 .. you can't make more pixels, they're fixed, actual transistors and diodes on the glass substrate.

 

If you force a bigger resolution, the processor inside the lcd monitor will either show some message saying "resolution not supported", or it will try to resize it down to 2560 x 1080 - if it's a very good monitor, it may accept up to 4K (3840 x something) and will scale down to 2560 x 1080

 

HOWEVER, often the video card has a much better scaler (resizer) than the one built inside the monitor, so you would get better quality configuring the video card (from it's settings not from that place you took screenshots) to scale some resolution down to 2560x1080 and give the monitor a 2560x1080 image.

 

Either way, the image quality would be worse than actually using proper 2560x1080 - it's not worth it unless you absolutely must have that resolution.
