I've recently installed the latest AMD driver and somehow I'm now able to get a higher resolution by enabling the VSR (Virtual Super Resolution) technology on my 1080p monitor. After making some comparisons I've noticed that 1440p videos look a bit sharper then 1080 even on my 24 inch monitor.

My question is, are higher resolution monitors even worth buying anymore? There's a huge difference between 1080p and 1440p monitors price wise. Also I'm guessing that 28 inch 1080p monitors will not look as pixely with VSR enabled.

I've got a 30" screen at 2560x1600. The size is great, bu I wouldn't really want a higher resolution as long as not all programs scale their buttons etc. when increasing Windows's DPI setting.
When I first used this monitor I bumped up the DPI so I could actually read anything. However, this resulted in several programs becoming unusable, because the buttons remained the same pixel size, so a lot of text was cut off.

Agreed. 2560x 1440 makes things super small on 24" monitor. I thought 28" would work fine with this kind of resolution.

I bought a Dell 2560x 1440 27 Inch monitor just recently and love it. I'd be interested to hear how the virtual tech works, but on the whole don't tend to trust stuff like that.


After doing some research it seems to be for games. basically just a brute force way of doing AA (render larger and down scale). That's how I understand it anyway.

you still have the same amount of pixels, the difference is due to different methods of downsampling by whoever made the video vs codec vs amd's doodad. And yes higher resolution is well worth buying, things may look "super small" with 4k on 28" at first but your eyes will adjust and eventually 1080p will look like shit in comparison.

Would be nice to see a side by side comparison between the native 2560x1600 and VSR upscale.
