DSR is short for Dynamic Super Resolution. It’s available through nVIDIA control panel and allows you to run the game at a higher resolution than your monitors native and downscale to fit screen. Makes very sharp image but very demanding.
I suppose that because it is a competitive game and more frames-per-second is proven to be advantageous, until the hardware is able to churn out the framerates, we can only play at 1440p for now.
I was actually quite surprised when i found out that some players actually cranked everything to Low settings so that they can better distinguish the Red Team from the surroundings, not just to increase FPS.
However, the fact that the quality differences between 150% Render Scale and 50% Render Scale appears, to the naked eye, to be minimal to non-existent does a lot of credit to the Developers’ and Graphic Digital Artists’ skills over at the Blizzard team. Gotta love them for it.
Oh hey! I have an 8k monitor too but I play 6k windowed 21:9 so my mic (hanging from above) doesn’t block the screen. I don’t have as many graphics cards as you though, just a dodgy 2080 ti haha.
PS. Have you 1) got issues with screen burn if bright images are left on the screen and 2) poor visibility on the bottom of the taskbar (assuming yours is the Dell like mine)? I seem to be having those issues…
