1080p Content on 1440p Monitors

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I am currently using my PS4 on my 27" 2560x1440p monitor. Is there any merit to purchasing a 27" 1920x1080p monitor for my PS4? It might just be in my head, but it feels like my picture is a bit more soft on my monitor over my 50" TV I was previously using.

This might all be in my head, as I feel like the space being used by 1080p isn't changing if I don't get a 24" 1080p monitor.

Thanks for the help and suggestions!

I believe it's because the image is being upscaled, but since 1440p is exactly 1/3 larger than 1080p, it can't distribute the pixels evenly. Basically it's trying to put each pixel from the 1080p image into 1.333 pixels of the larger screen, and so it needs to "blur" it a bit for it to form the same lines and whatnot.

Are there options in the PS4 menu to change the resolution like the is in the Xbox 360 when using a VGA cable?

The PS4 can't do 1440p, but 720p should scale to 1440p perfectly if you don't mind the lower res.

Unless the resampling routine is balls I can't imagine 1920x1080 -> 2560x1440 looking worse than 1280x720 -> 2560x1440. But I guess it wouldn't hurt to try.

A native 1920x1080 display would probably be better but that may or may not be worth the expense to you.

In general it's possible to make uneven-ratio scaling look good (subjective but most would agree), but most hardware scalers are a bit primitive for that. By that I mean 1080p content on a 27" 2560x1440 monitor looking pretty much as sharp and good as on a 27" 1920x1080 monitor, assuming equal monitor performance with respect to contrast, uniformity, color accuracy, etc.
