If you wanted to use your own beware of playing 1440p recently enjoyed a new generation of console and forget what you want to use PS5 because you will not see the image being transferred to 1440p on your monitor, but at 1080p.
1440p, a resolution that SONY does not allow for PS5
SONY has confirmed to the Italian media that its next generation is comforting does not support Quad HD resolution or better known as 1440p, which is a great pain for those who intended to use these monitors to connect the new SONY console.
This is also a serious inconvenience to the manufacturers of the monitors, who have ensured the compatibility of their game monitors with a resolution of 1440p and PS5
1440p is not a standard TV resolution
If you have ever wondered why many televisions, not computer moni tors, do not support 1440p resolution, there is a reason for this.
i standard rec. 2020, designed to make TV resolutions similar to 1080, only requires two screen resolutions with more than 1080p resolution: 3840 × 2160 (“4K”) y 7680 × 4320 (“8K”).
This means that if for example 4K television does not support rec resolution. 2020 then it cannot be marketed as a 4K television, but nothing happens if that same television does not support unconventional decisions, such as 1440p, 1800p, etc. What we see on PC PCs.
Between GPU and Video Release
Once the image has been created by the GPU, it is sent to the video output, this is done by the display control, which is one of the GPU generators, which sends the signal to the video output.
To save space on the edge of the chip, the effect is to have several types of video interface but it opens i DisplayPort, so the display controls the output of the video signal corresponding to that level. This requires a central chip that converts the file to DisplayPort signal on HDMI signal equivalent.
Some of the drivers used for this function are intended for use only on televisions and are compliant with TV standard, with the result that they cannot convert DP signals into HDMI signals that are not supported by standard standard.
The central chip can be a modified operating unit, a microcontroller or an FPGA unit. Each manufacturer chooses the one that best suits his or her design and what works best for the construction of its cost.
1440p on PS5 for future updates?
We do not know the type of unit SONY used as a signal converter in HDMI, obviously it must be new because this is the first time that the SONY console supports HDMI 2.1 standard.
On PlayStation 4, SONY used a microcontroller, this gave them the opportunity to re-add HDR support to their consoles after launch, so there is a chance that update console support 1440p next timeO.
Well, this depending on the type of hardware they are designed to convert DisplayPort signal to HDMI, in this case they may have chosen something simpler that can be updated. Only time will tell.
