So recently I've been getting the itch to stream a little bit though it has become tougher since I upgraded to a 1440p monitor and games now use more resources. I'm curious if anyone happens to know of a way to achieve a perfect downscale resolution from 1440p to 1080p. What I mean by this is possible some software that would be able to add black bars on the border of my monitor and reproducing a 1080p resolution.
The reason I am curious about this is because I don't want my game to be blurry by regularly down scaling from 1440p to 1080p as it just shrinks everything and it is not a 1:1 ratio (unlike 720p to 1440p).
I'm looking for ways to reduce my CPU load by any amount as I can hit up to 70% just with BF4 on my i7 3770k
