Solved 1080p resolution on a 720p TV? Tags: PC gaming TV Games Resolution Video Games Last response: January 23, 2013 1:51 AM in Video Games Share lazereagle January 17, 2013 7:26:07 PM Hey y'all, I've got my PC hooked up via HDMI to a 720p plasma TV. The PC has pretty solid specs and is capable of running games at 1920x1080. Is there any advantage to running the games at 1080p, or should I just stick to the native 1366x768? Thanks!

The best you can do is 1366x768. | Report abuse Reply to crewton simon12 January 18, 2013 10:04:02 AM No there is no advantage as your TV will just rescle the image to 720P. | Report abuse Reply to simon12 Best solution jaguarskx TV Expert January 18, 2013 5:35:17 PM There is no real advantage because all the plasma TV is doing is just scaling down the resolution to 720p so that it can be displayed on the screen. You are basically giving up performance (rendering at 1080p and outputting to 720p) for nothing. | Report abuse Reply to jaguarskx lazereagle January 23, 2013 1:49:46 AM Best answer selected by lazereagle. | Report abuse Reply to lazereagle lazereagle January 23, 2013 1:51:02 AM Thanks!
