How do I get games to run in 2560x1440? - Page 4

post #31 of 53
I've found that 90% of the games I play seem to support 1440p with no problem. All Source games, BF3, BFBC2, Tribes Ascend, Deus Ex HR, Just Cause 2, Guild Wars 2, Skyrim are some off the top of my head that support 1440p. And considering all the games you listed are fairly new, I'd think they would support it.
They might not be listing it in their settings because your monitor doesn't actually report 2560x1440 as a supported resolution over EDID. So in your case it would probably require some sort of configuration file changes to force games to run in those resolutions.

Though I will repeat, like many others have said, that it's pointless to do so. 1080p with higher AA will look much better on a 1080p monitor.

If you actually had a 1440p monitor you would have no problem finding the resolution in pretty much any game you'd play these days. But, you don't, so...

You can't run beyond 1080p on a 1080p monitor. You're basically saying this:

Hey guys I put in 50 gallons of gas in my 20 gallon tank and it just worked!

No, but the GPU can scale the 1440p image down to 1080p, just as it can scale up 1080p to 1440p. You're just wasting performance doing it..

What you are saying - You can pump 50 gallons of gas into a 20 gallon tank but it still only holds 20 gallons

You can scale images, you can't scale gas..

Just get yourself some nvidiainspector, and run your games with supersample anti-aliasing. SSAA is exactly as you describe, because you're literally running your game at a higher resolution than your monitor is capable of, but it's downsampled to match your native res. Looks fantastic too. IMO a much cleaner solution.

Fairly recently it's been a trend to render stuff at "1440p" and to scale that down to your native res. Whatever your thoughts are on this process, the OP is obviously satisfied with the results, so please just post something helpful or save it for a relevant thread.
