PS5 Compatible ViewSonic 1440p Monitors That Support 4K Downscaling

ViewSonic has several monitors that support 4K downscaling to 1440p on the PlayStation 5 (as well as the PlayStation 5 Digital Edition).

You can check out this guide to find which of the screens are compatible.

About PS5 and 1440p

The PlayStation 5 currently does not support 1440p although Sony has hinted that they may add support in a future firmware update for the console if there is enough demand for it. For now, the PS5 can only output video signals to 1080p or 4K.

With that said, certain 1440p monitors are capable of downscaling 4K video signals to 1440p, which will give you great image quality.

How to downscale 4K to 1440p with ViewSonic monitors

1. To downscale a 4K video signal from your PlayStation 5 to 1440p on ViewSonic monitors, you first need to make sure that you are using a compatible monitor.

2. If you are sure that your monitor supports downscaling, you can connect your PS5 or PS5 Digital Edition to the screen with the HDMI cable.

3. Turn on your console and your monitor.

4. From the Home Screen main menu, head to “Settings,” which is located on the top right corner of the screen with the gear icon (it is to the left of your profile picture).

5. In the “Settings” menu, scroll down and select “Screen and Video.”

6. In the “Screen and Video” menu, select “Video Output” on the left tab and then “Video Output Information” on the right side.

7. The “Video Output Information” shows your currently video output signal. If the resolution shows “3840 x 2160 – 60 Hz” or “3840 x 2160 – 120 Hz,” then the downscaling feature of ViewSonic monitor is enabled.

8. If the resolution shows “1920 x 1080 – 60 Hz” or “1920 x 1080 – 120 Hz” instead, head back to the “Screen and Video,” select “Video Output” on the left tab and then “Resolution” on the right side.

9. In the new pop-up menu, select the “2160p.” The screen will go black for a second or two before changing to the new resolution.

10. To ensure that the games you are playing will be downscaled from 4K to 1440p, go to “Saved Data and Game/App Setting” from the “Settings” menu.

11. In the “Saved Data and Game/App Setting” menu, select “Game Presets” on the left tab and then “Performance Mode or Resolution Mode” on the right side.

12. You will get three options in the pop-up menu, select “Resolution Mode” to make sure that the games you play will be displayed at the highest resolution possible by default.
