Gaming at 1080p on a 4k monitor

    On a 4k monitor, why does scaling look so bad when I change the resolution in-game to 1080p.

    If I change the resolution to 1080p on my PC the scaling looks way better.

    In both scenarios I have set my scaling to aspect ratio in the nVidia control panel and also set to override game setting etc.
    All scaling options only seem to take effect when I lower my monitors resolution to 1080p. (or anything lower than the native res of 4k)

    If I leave the resolution at 4K the nVidia scaling does not seem to apply when I change the resolution in-game to 1080p.

    Long and short of it. I would rather not have to change my PC reolution every time I wanted to play a game at 1080p and would prefer to do this directly in the game options without it looking terrible.

    Any help appreciated!
