    Has anyone else experienced this? Running under 1440x900 resolution in a VM looks kind of OK, as the pixels are just being quadrupled. However, forcing 1440x900 through the nVidia Control Panel under Boot Camp (as there is no native option for 1440x900 resolution) seems blurry as if Windows or nVidia is doing some bilinear interpolation in order to smooth everything out. What results is a blurry mess that would look a lot better if they quadrupled the pixels.

    The reason I'm running at 1440x900 is because gaming at 2880x1800 is unfeasible D:

    Yes, alas, no video chipset/display seems to be designed to cope with perfect pixel doubling. Had same experience 10 years ago with a dell laptop.
