Windows 10, Catalyst 15.7.1. GPU scaling is permanently on (everything scales to desktop resolution)

Question asked by urnefar on Sep 1, 2015

I'm annoyed that the driver always scales games run in a lower resolution to fit the desktop resolution, instead of just changing the resolution.


As a CRT user my monitor has no internal scaler, so the driver is obviously doing the scaling.

With CRTs scaling is undesirable and blurry compared to just swapping resolution, as every resolution is native.

Furthermore lower resolutions allow for higher refresh rates, but scaling up to the higher desktop res restricts it.
