U2715H, Comparing to 4k, looking jagged and pixelated?

Hey all.

I had a pair of 4K LED monitors for the past couple years. One of them had a bad board, so I figured it would be a good opportunity to upgrade them both. While they aren't an upgrade in resolution, I picked up a pair of Dell Ultrasharp u2715h's as I figured they would be an upgrade in quality.

However, since setting up the monitors, despite being 1440p, everything looks a little pixelated. Everything has this video game sprite feel to it. I know things are no longer 4k, but something doesn't seem correct. Am I missing some key setting here? Nothing looks smooth or crisp. Everything looks a little jagged and I'm wondering if it's simply me being used to 4k.

I'll attach two images to show what I mean; I took them with my phone, because I don't think screenshots will actually represent what I'm seeing on my own physical monitors.

I'm running Windows 10 64 bit and a GTX 1080ti. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

RE: Ultrasharp u2715h Looking Jagged and Pixelated?

Going from 4k 3840x2160 60Hz to 2k 2560x1440 60Hz will certainly appear to be a downgrade visually concerning pixelation. What video out ports are on your GTX 1080 Ti? Assuming that you installed the U2715H inf driver for your operating system? DELL_U2715H-MONITOR_A00-00_DRVR_FF3XW.exe And that both appear correctly in the Device Manager?

Just installed the driver, but usually never have to do so for monitors. The monitors are connected by Mini DP. Previous monitors were connected by DP. Thanks for the response, Chris!

Watch this video to see a comparison of 2K to 4K. Pretty dramatic difference.
