I’m using the NVIDIA graphics driver 450.66 with a GTX 1080 and it’s connected to an ASUS ROG PG27AQ display that is 3840x2160 @ 60Hz.
In Windows this combination is capable of all sorts of resolutions, and so you would think it is in Linux, and the NVIDIA driver does indeed say exactly that.
Unfortunately only 640x480, 800x600, 1024x768, and the native 3840x2160 resolutions actually work. Everything else makes my display go dark, write “OUT OF RANGE” and then revert to normal after 15 seconds.
All of my games also detect all these terrible resolutions, and many of them will automatically attempt to use them. For Warcraft 3 Reforged, I want to use a 1080p resolution because the game runs like trash, but it’s still Warcraft 3 and I love it, but I can’t select it because, if I do, I get no display output.
The selectable resolutions also change with each release of the graphics driver. I can’t quite figure out the pattern, but it’s on long timeframe. It doesn’t change between reboots or anything like that. More like when I update sometimes. Sometimes it writes (Scaled) after everything and the GPU works as normal. Sometimes they just straight up aren’t there. And sometimes, like now, they are listed but don’t work.
Anybody know what’s going on?
