    Hello everyone,

    I use a macbook pro (early 2013) in clamshell mode connected to a Dell U2515H (via displayport). This is a 1440p monitor. As discussed in threads before, it's very hard (/impossible?) to get 720p HiDPI working on MacOS Sierra.

    Does anyone know if there is a new fix or method to resolve this issue (without turning off SIP and such)? Does anyone know if High Sierra has better scaling?

    Hello MattTheMedic,

    Did you ever solve your HiDPI in Sierra question? I am curious about this resolution on that monitor. :apple:

    That monitor is only 2560 x 1440.. at that resolution things will look a bit fuzzy compared to retina.

    Unfortunately not. It's such a shame because 720p HiDPI should be possible. I guess apple just doesn't think 1440p is a high enough resolution to enable features like this :(
