I decided to give nVidia down-sampling a go, i.e. setting a custom resolution. My monitor is an Asus VG236H, TN panel, 1920x1080 @ 120hz native. I set a custom resolution of 2560x1440 with 120hz refresh like so:


...and it totally ran at that resolution (i.e. everything got a hell of a lot smaller) AND felt as smooth/responsive as 120hz should feel. I get that my monitor isn't actually able to display that resolution due to not having that many pixels, but the graphics card is still feeding it a 1440p @ 120hz signal through the DVI cable.

Does this mean that 1440p @ 120hz should be totally possible? Why haven't mainstream monitor-makers done it yet, only obscure Korean brands that you have to manually overclock? Is it a limitation of IPS/PLS panels?

Or am I just being stupid and not understanding something frown.gif

Apologies if this is in the wrong subforum.
