Hello

I recently purchased a 15 inch Macbook Pro due to wanting a new laptop that was high in performance and had no PWM flickering so I picked an almost maxed out 15 inch Macbook Pro that my parents bought for me (inb4 spoiled)

Anyway I installed Windows 8.1 using Boot Camp and I can't find a good resolution that works for me. I recall people trying to do custom resolutions using the nVidia custom resolution function but I know no equivalent that works with Boot Camp's AMD Radeon GPU drivers.

I run OSX at 1440x900 (HDPI) using RDM. I like OSX so far, just need Windows for those little things (*cough* games *cough*) so VMWare, or similar is out of the question. Before I was using my rMBP. I had a ThinkPad that ran at 1366x768 resolution at 15.6 inches screen size and 1920x1080 external 27 inch monitor (ASUS VE27Q)

I tried full resolution with 200% DPI scaling and things feel a bit "odd" if you will, guess that's because I've never used DPI scaling before.

I was thinking of trying Windows 10 and will when I have time, eventually if that poses an improvement.

I'm open in hearing if anyone has any other solutions/experiences.

Thanks

JTL
