Re: Catalyst 15.7.1 is now available

Hi ray_m​,

I've got a 280x (Sapphire Vapor-X) that was missing VSR on 15.7 on Windows 8.1 and 10 (upgraded last night). I just upgraded to 15.7.1 and I'm still missing VSR. I can file another bug report if you want, but I was wondering if 15.7.1 was expected to fix missing VSR support (since I didn't see it in the fixes listed).

Re: Catalyst 15.7.1 is now available

Qnix 2710 (one of the more popular Korean monitors out there) over DVI with a native resolution of 2560x1440, which I'm running it at. I'm not using any of the driver hacks or anything to overclock it, it is running default 60hz.

Re: Catalyst 15.7.1 is now available

The issue is that your GPU is already running at it's maximum supported resolution.

If you were connecting to a 1080 panel, you would see the VSR option which would allow you to scale up to 2560x1440 and then downsample it to 1080.
