I put 2560x1080 on a monitor with a resolution of 1920x1080 using VSR, on the driver 17.7.1, just appeared black bars at the top and bottom and the image was normal 21:9, and now on the 17.7.2 the image is stretched and no Settings in the driver tab are disabled.


"Preserve aspect ratio" - does not give anything. All the same, the picture is stretched.


Apparently it will not be possible to play more in 21:9 on an ordinary 16:9 monitor.


At a resolution of 1920x720 the aspect ratio remains correct, apparently the problem with the 2560x1080 (VSR) it unfortunately rasyatyanuto.


On the driver 17.7.1 there are no problems with a resolution of 21:9 (2560x1080, 3200x1080, 3200x1100, etc.) on the usual FullHD, 16:9 monitor, there is.


Resolution 1920x720 is displayed normally with black bars on the top and bottom as And should be!


I think this is related to the transfer of video settings to the basic interface, and it is possible that the preservation of the aspect ratio does not work with VSR (non-standard resolution in the form of 2560x1080 written manually)


The permission I add in the register  "[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Control\Class\{4d36e968-e325-11ce-bfc1-08002be10318}\0000]" Parameter - DALNonStandardModesBCD1 .


I would like to fix it as it was before on the old driver(17.7.1 etc), so that it's possible to play at the resolution of 2560x1080 on monitors and televisions 16:9.


By the way, it seems to me that the opportunity to officially sanction 21: 9 with the help of VSR, could become an interesting solution from AMD and would interest many. Since on the driver 17.7.1 the resolution of 2560x1080 is displayed and works perfectly on my TV Samsung UE-40 EH6037K 40".
