Monitor Resolution Disparity

Recommended Posts

Hi, I am hoping someone here may be able to advise me on this:


The listed monitor runs a native 3840x2160 resolution. I currently have mine set up in NVIDIA Control panel as DSR x 1.78 - 5120x2880. Speccy is reporting as above - current relolution 1707x960. What does this mean? Has the resolution of my very expensive monitor tanked?

Thanks in advance,

If you look at the numbers there it has your monitor width and height correct to your NVIDIA settings, 5120 x 2880.

Then looking at the reported current resolution in relationship to that:
5120 / 1707 = 3; and 2880 /  960 = 3

(The Work Resolution is smaller in the second figure, at 920, because 'Current Resolution' includes the taskbar (40 pixels) while 'Work Resolution' doesn't).

So your Current/Work resolutions are a factor of 3 smaller than your monitor settings.

1770 x 960 is a pretty standard resolution for Desktop Wallpapers, if you have an image of that size for your desktop wallpaper then Windows will/should set the Desktop to that resolution. Which is what Speccy is reporting, your current desktop resolution.

If you launch something that uses a higher resolution, eg, a graphics programme or a Hi-res Game, then that should then use the higher settings (or whatever you have set for that programme).
