View Full Version : G53SW-IX176V -> 1920 1080 resoultion possible

07-14-2012, 11:07 AM

I am an owner of a G53SW-IX176V. My question is, if it is possible to run a higer resolution than the standard 1366x768 (120Hz).
For exampler 19020 x 1080 (60Hz). I tried to force that resolution in the nvidia settings and it did work. But is it also supported ore do i run into troubles with this setting if i use them for a long time (damaged screen?).

Thanks for your help.

I do not believe you really can. With regards to damage, I do not know. With regards to usability, it's your call. There are still only 1.05 million pixels on there, versus 2.07 million for true Full HD. You cannot have resolution higher than the number of pixels. The nVidia driver just fakes it out so that Windows thinks you have a 1080p internal monitor.

But what confuses me is that the technical data of the G53SW-IX176V say that the resoultion is 1366x768.

And the technical data of other G53 models are sometimes 19020 x 1080 ore even both "15.6" 16:9 HD (1366x768)/HD 3D (1366x768 120Hz)/Full HD (1920x1080) LED Backlight".

So I thought it might be "switchable" like 120Hz with 1366 res for 3D and 1920 res with 60Hz for normal use?

Nope. That list you made is all the various resolutions that different versions of the system have, similar to the list of memory configs:"DDR3 1333 MHz SDRAM, 4 x SO-DIMM socket for expansion up to 16 GB SDRAM (Quad Core), 2 x SO-DIMM socket for expansion up to 8 GB SDRAM (Dual Core)" If you have the 120 Hz panel, you can set it to 60 Hz (though I do not know why) if you want, but not 1080p. That is a change in pixel count, which is--from what I understand :p--physically impossible. Now if you can figure out how to do so, let me know, we can make some money. :cool:
