What happened if I ran 1080 game on WQHD monitor ?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi,

I am thinking to buy a WQHD monitor but I have games that run only up to 1920 x 1080 so what happen to these games when I run them on WQHD monitor ? what the picture will be ?

It'll be 1080 resolution, full screen. Some people might argue that 1080 looks better on a native 1080 monitor, but the difference is non existent from my experience.

Also you can play around with scaling settings on your gpu and or your monitor... You can usually choose full screen, one to one, or a setting that maintains the aspect ratio... With one to one and the aspect ratio setting it will put black bars on the image to shrink it down....

1080p on WQHD full screen will look soft the same way lower resolutions look soft on 1080p monitor.

Running 1080p on a 1440p monitor will look really bad unless you turn off scaling. It will be soft and blurry.

What I do when I need to run at a lower res, such as when a game doesn't support my aspect is set my GPU to not use scaling and instead represent the image "1 for 1" on the screen.

Though this can be hit and miss. If you're on a smaller screen then playing without scaling might mean the game will be too small for good play. At the same time, the smaller the screen is, the less noticeable play at a lower res with scaling will be.

Yes I forgot I saw this myself when installing new game and it run on lower resolution by default I see the game menu blurry until I set it to 1080 which make me thinking do you guys think it is better to stick with Full HD monitors for gaming or all new games should support QHD resolution ?

As long as your GPU can drive WQHD there's no point staying 1080p. Same could be said about 4k.

Your experience is very narrow, then.

The way 1080p looks on a 1440p monitor varies according to how the monitor's software handles upscaling. On some monitors, it won't actually look all that bad (probably even unnoticeable to some people). On others, it will look really badly. The price of the monitors tends to, on average, correlate with how well they handle up and downscaling.
