    Make sure you enabled HiDPI.
    Make sure you installed the display override in the correct location, with the correct name, with correct permissions.
    Keep in mind it does not take effect until a reboot.

    But I think what you're attempting is complete nonsense.
    Your EDID shows that your native resolution is 1366x768.
    For 1366x768 HiDPI, must have native resolution larger than that.

    RehabMan Will this tutorial work for a Dell 8k monitor in Mac High Sierra?
    What would be the best resolution in HiDPI for a screen with 7680 x 4320 resolution (280ppi)
    From what i read, there is no native 8k support in Mac OS but you can get 8K 30 Hz with SwitchResX
    Thanks.

    I have no ability to predict the future.

    It depends on the size of the monitor, your eyes, and your personal preference.
