I have created custom resolutions via CRU tool (tried both standard and detailed; 800x600 and 1024x768 - both set to 120hz, however OSD still shows 1680x1050 even if I set desktop or game resolution to custom one. I only have GPU scaling option available to me in Nvidia CP and 1680x1050 resolution stays even if "no scaling" is selected.
Note sure if this is relevant: monitor itself has two "size options": 1) "auto" wich, I think, should show correct aspect ratio/without streching it out; 2) and "wide" wich should stretch image. In practice, both options do absolutely nothing - you can switch them without any affect (maybe I misunderstood their purspose).
I have been performing poorly in-game for many months and tried a lot of things. I'm not sure whether I am the root cause as everything micro-stutters/feels sooo delayed (it definitely was not like this before). I have tried a lot of things already and would like to mess with scaling as well if this can help. I would appreciate any advice.
so i hooked up my good old 2233rz for you, because i am messing with my benq xl2411t currently, too.
i can confirm your description. display scaling is no longer in the nvidia control panel. only gpu scaling.
on gpu scaling obviously u will always get the 1680x1050 resolution info on the monitor.
nomatter which resolution you use.
i tried, just like you, to try it with a custom resolution.
mh, maybe the samsung doesnt have an own "scaler"? (i dont know if this is possible to be honest)
