You posted downscaled pictures which have no relevance to anything in this topic and which definitely have no relevance to "how it renders" or "how it shows" because you're doing something completely opposite - rather than upscaling the low resolution images, you're downscaling the high resolution one (though you, for good measure, downscaled them all ). If you want to compare upscaled with real resolution, then you need to post two pictures - one with dimensions 1080p which was originally rendered at 720p and then upscaled, and then that same picture with dimensions 1080p but which was natively rendered at 1080p. Alternatively, if you have a 1080p monitor, you could just look at a picture in 720p zoomed in to full screen vs that same picture at 1080p with no zooming in. There's a big difference. I don't think you know what you're talking about.
