So my MSI monitor can accept 4K input for Consoles, which it downscales to 1440p. Windows is showing resolutions up to 4K, but I want to turn off this feature so I can use DSR instead. I trust Nvidia's downsampler more than MSI. Anyone know how to do this? I can't find the option in the OSI. Connected to my 3080 with DP.

Please refer manual on page 19 for support list of resolution and refresh rate.
It can be 2560x1440@165Hz when connecting with 3080 graphic card on desktop by DP cable.

If on laptop, it has some limitation by laptop.
If you connected with laptop, please provide brand and model for this laptop or refer specification sheet for this laptop first.

It is a Desktop 3080 FE connected via display port. It is showing 1440p as native, however also offers the resolutions 2560 x 1600 and 3840 x 2160 (See attachments)
As far as I can gather this is the mode for consoles which will downscale to 1440. But I don't want these enabled in Windows as I want to enable DSR in the Nvidia control panel.

I have just used DDU to completely remove the GPU driver and installed the latest and the problem persists.

It cannot turn off console mode.

Please modify resolution to 2560x1440(native) in "PC" in NVIDIA control panel or modify resolution to 2560x1440(recommend) in display setting in Windows 10 OS as attachment you provided.

It is already at 1440p. My point is I want to disable console mode so that the resolutions are not available at all. This is because I want to enable DSR in the Nvidia control panel. At the moment I cannot enable DSR because it mutiplies the top resolution available which is currently 4k.

I had the same exact problem and found a solution, linked below.

I went through the process shown, but skipped steps 5, 6, 9, and 11. Step 10 gets rid of the "console mode" resolutions above 2560x1440 which screw up NVIDIA scaling technologies (DSR, DLDSR, and NIS). I didn't have to manually edit the registry as shown in the second half of the instructions.

Before running through this process, the 2.25X DLDSR option would say 5760x3240....now it shows correctly as 3840x2160

You legend! I was just about to revisit this because of DLDSR and I still hadn't found a solution. It works perfectly. Thank you!

You're welcome, glad to help. I have searched for a solution to this probably 3 different times in the past with no success. The google machine was working better today.

Hello! Sorry for the bump. But when you do this can you still play on a console with your monitor? I have a PS5 but want to remove the console mode for my PC usage. But when I play on my PS5 I want it to enabled

Couldn't say for sure, I don't have any consoles laying around to test it out. My guess is that it'd work, it'd be the same as connecting to a 1440p monitor rather than a 4K monitor.

For what it's worth, the program used ( Custom Resolution Utility or CRU) allows you to export the factory settings before making any changes. If you run through the process and it doesn't do what you want it to do, there's the option to import the factory settings to get back to starting point.
