I finally got my new 1080p monitor set up. The only issue is... it's supportive of twice that? Somehow? It's an ASUS VZ229, which is supposedly only 1920x1080, but it's displaying at 3840x2160? Whuh?

    Yes, certain brands combined with certain graphics card will let you do that. I had an old Asus 1080p monitor combined with a Radeon 280X and could do that. Decided to try an Nvidia 1070, and it couldn't do that, so it may be a function of the graphics card and not the monitor. Anyway, yes, you can do that. I now have a true 4K monitor and will be returning to Radeon when the RX 3080 becomes available.

    @irene a you noted, with supersampling. You have to have a graphics card that supports it, because the GC is doing all the work. It has a negative effect on frame rate, so even though I could do it, I normally just left the setting at 1080. My Radeon had a setting for it in the Catalyst software. I never find the same setting in the Nvidia software.

    @iAmNaN I am on an AMD card and I also am using the Radeon Crimson manager/monitor thing, so maybe that's doing it automatically?

    @Parzi there's a God chance it is.

    @irene yes. I think it is an AMD thing, since I haven't seen a similar in Nvidia. And my previous comment not withstanding, God had nothing to do with it. 🙃

    Nvidia also has this technology and it is called Dynamic Super Resolution there. I don't know if this is working only for games or also on desktop

    Can confirm... it's AMD's doing. Damn it looks good tho, and it doesn't hit the framerate too terribly hard.

    How can it improve the picture? :-/ isn't it just rendering 4 pixels for every pixel that actually exists?

    @ThomasRedstone @irene it looks *amazing* on monitor. Attached is a printscreen. My second monitor is 1366x768, for reference. It should help put the difference in perspective.

    @irene Yes, there is. It actually does look better.

    All looks pretty blurry to me ;-)
