Max resolution of 4k tv via HDMI

Recommended Posts

You don't want to run anything but 720, 1080 or 4k if it's a 4k screen.  Stop worrying about the card you have now going past 1080p.  The fact that it's a TV and not a monitor is more of a reason to stop trying to use resolutions outside of the 3 I mentioned.

There's very little difference in reasoning between using 1080/4k resolutions on a TV versus a monitor. I wouldn't use 1280x720 on either.

I just have seen TV's downscale resolutions a lot worse than a decent monitor would. 4k has the same amount of pixels as 9 720p screens or 4 1080p screens and will typically downscale to those resolutions better than ANY other resolution. I'm not suggesting to use 720 if 1080 is working but to try and go any higher besides native 2160 would not look good. Either get a card that can support 4k or run at 1080.

Running any non-integer divisor of your max resolution is just a bad idea. For a 4K monitor, that's 4K, 1920x1080, 960x540...

While you two  hashing out this puzzle is intellectually stimulating and actually teaching me something, it's kind of irrelevant as I don't want to decrease my res to 720 but was maybe hoping to increase it. So 1440 would be ill advised? Again, doesn't really matter as I don't have that option via HDMI for some reason but was curious.

We're saying the same thing then, you're just not acknowledging 720p as one of those values for whatever reason.

Oh my God. I'm an idiot. lol2.gif

 

720p is certainly a great resolution if you want to drop that low. For some reason I did the math in my head and decided it wasn't just a 3x3 grid. lol2.gif

1440 would not typically look good on a 4k TV if using it as a computer monitor. That's your answer for your current setup - Stick with 1080 until you get a new card. :)
