Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)

RE: Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)
First, Toasty, your CRU has been the most helpful tool in trying to zoom out in Age of Empires 2 for me so THANK YOU, but I have only been able to create a custom resolution of 2560x1440 60hz, but not use it.

I bought an Acer XF251Q and I have a AMD Radeon HD 8490 graphics card with Catalyst Control Center for Windows 10. Currently using DP(CPU) to HDMI (Monitor).

When I try to use my custom resolution of 2560x1440 my monitor reads "input not supported". I have tried playing with the different timing standards, Automatic LCD Standard/native/reduced but cannot get it to work. At this point I do not know if I will be able to force the 2560x1440 so I am asking for you to please help me get this to work. What do I need to do?

That's a 1920x1080 monitor. It's not going to support 2560x1440. The only way to get 2560x1440 in that case is to use Virtual Super Resolution (VSR) through your GPU, but I don't think AMD supports VSR with the HD 8490.

Thanks Toasty, when I wasn’t able to pull of the VSR through Catalyst Control Center I had a feeling it wasn’t going to work.

RE: Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)
Hello,

I got a question. I have a benq 2546 240hz monitor but my gpu dont show the 1280x960 resolution.

Whats is better? Lcd standar, lcd native or lcd reduced for 240hz and good clock?

LCD standar: 240hz / 259.201 kHz / 373.25 mhz
LCD native: 240hz / 237.125 kHz / 341.46 mhz
LCD reduced 240hz / 234.005 hHz / 320.12 mhz

Display scaling or gpu scaling?
Thanks!

If you use GPU scaling, the timing doesn't matter. If you use display scaling, it depends on what the monitor supports. LCD standard or native is most likely to work, but no guarantees. You'll have to try and see what works.

RE: Custom Resolution Utility (CRU)
I've been having stuttering issues on both my laptop and PC under 60fps. And I was wondering if this could help with it. The problems have persisted ever since i got both and I dont know if I'm unlucky or something, It's been 2 years and I havent found anyone with the same issue. Thing is, every single game, no matter what year it was made, if I'm under 60, it stutters regardless of Vsync. I mean even if i lock the frame to 55 on a game that i can easily get 60 on, it stutters.
I am just tired, its been 2 years and I have completely given up on gaming because I couldnt find anyone with the same issue. Do you think playing around with refresh and all that can help with it?

I wouldn't expect frames rates below the refresh rate to be smooth. That's why G-SYNC and FreeSync exist. Trying a higher refresh rate might reduce the visible effects of stuttering in some cases, but the only way to have perfect smoothness is to synchronize the frame rate with the refresh rate. Generally, I find stuttering to be worst when the frame rate and refresh rate are close to each other but not synchronized.

If you have an NVIDIA card, make sure "Threaded optimization" is turned off. I've seen that cause stuttering in some cases.

It doesn't matter. The timing doesn't significantly affect performance.

I'm fine if its not as smooth, but its sadly just borderline unplayable, I have played on other PCs at 30fps or even 20fps and it doesn't feel as bad as 55fps does on my laptop/PC. below 60 feels fine on other PCs but not mine.
The only exception I have in Forza Horizon 3, out of the hundreds of games I've tried ony my PC. Its the ONLY one that feels completely playable at 30fps when locked.
Is there any tests that I can run?
Sadly its very hard to tell on recorded clips but heres one i recorded anyway

It was completely unplayable for me.
