Hello every one !

I spent hours and hours to get this working but no luck :/

i have an ultra wide SAMSUNG monitor with a max resolution 3440 * 1440 and 100Hz

In windows, i easily can select this resolution and scale the ui by 150% so every thing look very good and crisp.

In Mac, when i select 3440 * 1440 the UI become very small so it is unusable and texts unreadable and causes eyes strain very fast.

So definitely i have to select an HiDPi resolution, i can see 1720 * 720 in Scaled Resolutions but it is also very big to use !

i installed SwitchResX and i have successfully made a custom HiDPi resolutions but all are locked to 60Hz !!

i tried many and many resolutions but no luck

How can i modify the refresh rates ? or force it ? while using HiDPi mode ?!

Please help me, thank you a lot

I haven't used SwitchResX in a while but did you try, in System Preferences>Displays, holding down the option key while clicking the "Scaled" option and choosing via that?

Probably no help but I'm interested in your outcome.
