I’ve been having this issue for a long time and I can’t get my head around it.
When I connect my MacBook Pro 2015 to an external 1920x1080 monitor, the font becomes fuzzy and I get dizzy within a few minutes. I tried all suggestions on the official Apple forums but nothing worked.
What I understood is that the problem lies with how macOS renders fonts at different resolutions. I am understanding that it has something to do with aspect ratios and the fact that each pixel is represented by 2 physical pixels to give the Retina effect.
So my MacBook Pro max resolution is 2560x1600 which gives a 1.6 aspect ratio. A 1920x1080 monitor has a 1.78 aspect ratio. So to my understanding, any external monitor should have a 1.6 aspect ratio to be good for my eyes and to avoid font fuzziness.
I saw people recommending ultra HD monitors but those too have the same aspect ratio as 1920x1080, so how are they supposed to be better?
Can someone please explain what I’m missing here?
