Your PS5 not supporting 1440p? ViewSonic has your back

December 15, 2020

The company optimizes its gaming monitor line to support the next-gen console.

Many gamers were disappointed when they found out that Sony confirmed that the PlayStation 5 won’t have native support for 1440p (also known as QHD) resolution at launch. 1440p is the common resolution found on most gaming monitors, and it looks like Sony chose to prioritize 4K TVs for the PS5’s launch.

While this might not be an issue for some, it does create some incompatibilities with some gaming monitors, which could force some gamers to use an entirely different screen instead. In some cases, a 4K signal would often be downscaled to fit the QHD resolution.

This is why ViewSonic has announced that some of its gaming monitors will be optimized to support 4K signals and will automatically downscale to fit the QHD resolution. This will provide users with the best experience that the next-gen console has to offer, without any worry of incompatibilities that at times would require you to troubleshoot or install additional software.

Some of the optimized gaming monitors from ViewSonic include: 

  1. lite XG270QC
  2. Elite XG270Q
  3. VX2768-2KPC-mhd
  4. VX3268-2KPC-mhd
  5. VX2705-2KP-mhd/VX2768-2KP-mhd
  6. XG2705-2K

Hopefully, this will only be a temporary solution, as Sony should soon add support for 1440p monitors on the PS5.
