Hi,

I have an LG 27" 4K monitor connected via DP on my hackintosh with RX 460. Everything works except that I am not satisfied with the sharpness of my monitor specially with texts. OS X images and UI elements like icons are sharp but the text are blurry. Not so blurry but I supposed OS X has better font rendering than Windows because with Windows 10, the text are really sharp with this monitor.
Also, in Display Preferences, macOS thinks that my monitor is 1080p because when I set Resolution to: Default for Display, the resolution is 1080p. So I have to select Scaled and choose 1440p. I can't work with the 3840x2160 so I stick with 1440.
Did I miss something maybe? Or is this normal with OS X and external monitors?

I tried enabling HiDPI via terminal command that I found in Google, but it didn't give me HiDPI options.

Thanks.
