Yes you can, Google upscaling. If he has modern hardware it's easy enough.


Upscaling is taking media at one resolution (I.e. a movie) and using digital interpolation to result in something of a higher res.

You cant upscale hardware.

Appreciate the honesty
Liking the lack of bezels.
I have the 24" version of this 3 of them, great monitor, mine is 1920x1080 and 60Hz but it will run at 2560x1440 at 75Hz quite happily so wouldn't be surprised if this will run at 2560x1440 as well.

Eh? You cant just run a monitor at a higher res than the panel is

Well it works using a custom resolution in NVidia control panel setting 2560x1440 at 75Hz and passes the test, I was as surprised as you to be honest.

I only have a 1080 so running it at 7680x1440 is a bit of a fps killer but on the upside I don't need to use any AA as it's crisp at that resolution on a 24" panel.

I mean that's, quite literally, the opposite of upscaling. It's downscaling.

It's taking an internally rendered resolution and reducing it to a lower resolution for display.

Original poster was talking about running his monitor at a higher res than its stated as, you were talking about upscaling. Neither of which are supersampling, which is what you were linking to.

Well I can take pictures of the 2 resolutions and I can guarantee that the resolution is not upscaled but actually running at 2560x1440 in hardware.

Believe me I know what I am doing and I myself have never had a monitor that would do this, it usually goes out of range and ends up with a black screen but these don't, I can run Nvidia surround at 7680x1440 with bezel correction.

Do I have to prove it, if so then I can, it may sound stupid but my screens will run at 2560x1440, what is there to not understand?
I get where people are coming from with this, because that would mean the monitor has physically more pixels than it is advertised as. Or the custom res is lying to you and in fact its just 1080p with a different res label.

I won't be rude about it because at the very least, you can up the hz which is nice.

Agreed: my little HP Mini 210 netbook has a panel resolution of 1024*800, but Windows can render to a (non-scrolling) a 1024*768 mode. The GPU driver uses downsampling to render to the panel's native resolution, resulting in a slightly blurry and flickering image. Unpleasant for day-to-day use, compared with running at 1024*800, but if you have a badly-written application that will not scale or fit in that resolution...

Well the image is a lot crisper and the desktop icons are reduced in size without blur and gaming on triples from 5760x1080 at 100fps drops to sub 60fps when I run them at 7680x1440, it can clearly be seen that the res has increased it's not placebo, also where I would run high AA at 5760 I can turn it off at 7680.

I'm quite willing to do a video of 2 screens side by side and the process it goes through, I am not using DSR, NV CP is at default, the only thing I can think of is they use the same panel for the 24" version that is native 2560x1440.

There are 2 24" ones, displayspecifications.com/en/…2c6, displayspecifications.com/en/…e78

Yes then you've got a 1440p panel.
You don't have a 1080p panel. That's why people are getting annoyed at your claims as you are saying your magical monitor is able to do something physically impossible.

Enjoy.

Lol, I don't have a 1440 panel,it's native res is 1920x1080, it's a Lenovo X24 as stated above not the 1440 one, just because you have never seen something happen doesn't mean it doesn't exist, you know it's no different from back in the day when GPU manufacturers cripple GPU's and you could unlock them to a higher spec.

As your previous comment stated it is not unheard of for manufacturers to include a higher resolution panel than what's stated on the box.
That is what has happened here.

Unlocking a cpu/gpu to make use of inactive/disabled cores is very different to adding pixels that are not there.
You are claiming a 1080p panel somehow running at 1440p is somehow sharper than when at native resolution.
What you are claiming is PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE!

Good day sir

As I said it's native resolution is reported as 1920x1080, if it has a 1440 panel and is lets say crippled then fine, my original point that you may have missed was if that is the case then there is a good chance this monitor may well run at 1440 as well if that is the way Lenovo do things.

I also don't see how having a GPU with a couple of cores disabled to make it a lower spec is any different as the analogy is the same.

The fact remains that I bought a 24" monitor stated on the manufacturers spec as being 1920x1080 at 60Hz but it runs at 1440 at 75Hz so I am not complaining and if the one stated here does the same then it is a bargain.

I am still going to do a video just to show how it works and you can make your own mind up from that Ok, I am not adding pixels that are not there I am stating that they must be there for it to run at that res.

Good day to you Sir x
