I recently had my Framework Laptop arrive, and have been very happy with it on the whole! However, the unique resolution has caused some issues in games. Both because a) the game has weird graphical glitches or b) the native resolution is too high for the Intel Xe graphics to handle, but the other resolutions available aren’t scaled to the 3:2 aspect ration and look stretched. I’ve managed to find a solution that works for me, and thought may it could help others.
First, I found this thread on Reddit which lists a ton of useful 3:2 scaled resolutions, including 1920x1280, which is the equivalent of 1080p. I find that at least for the games that I usually play, (Civ, a bunch of Paradox strategy games, etc.) that resolution works great and the GPU is able to keep up.
Then second, using this, the Custom Resolution Utility, (CRU), I added a “Detailed Resolution” to Windows, which not only allows me to add any 3:2 scaled resolution I want to Windows, but those custom resolutions show up in the game display options. This lets me have my desktop at full 2256x1504, while I can have games open in fullscreen at a lower resolution that still fits the screen and aspect ratio.
Hope this can be helpful!
(side note, if someone can think of a better/more consice title, I’m open to suggestion)
