What is the best way to set up 2 x 2160 and 2 x 1080 Monitors?

Post by FFIXCollector »

I have 4 monitors 2 x 2160 on the bottom and 2 x 1083 monitors on top. Default drivers on a Radeon 570 card.
Screenshot from 2020-10-16 13-53-22.png
Now My issue is the text and icons are too small on the 2160 resolution screens. If I scale them they get fuzzy, and I'm also not sure if 2160 video will use the native resolution. I got 2160 to view and edit 2160 video.

Any recommendations?

You could try the two high-resolution monitors in Hi-DPI, the two smaller ones in native mode and then see if the font and icon size can be used on all four monitors.

I assume that you have tried all the possibilities of fractional scaling and that no satisfactory quality was achieved.
