General NOOB question about resolution

Recommended Posts

Hey guys. I had a discussion with a friend today in regards to resolution of monitors. I was under the impression that if you purchase a 27" monitor with a resolution of 1920x1080 (say the Samsung S27A950), you can still set the resolution higher than that in games and the monitor will still perform at the "game specified" resolution. My friend on the other hand said that if the monitor's resolution is 1920x1080 then that's as high as that monitor can display, full stop, no questions.

Which leads me to my question, who is right? Am I right and the monitor will run at higher than FULL HD resolution provided the graphics card and render it, or is he right and the monitor defines what resolution you can game at?

Thanks for your input in advance.

Your friend right. Specified monitor resolutions are the maximum.
