Custom Resolution Utility (CRU) is an excellent choice for computers equipped with ATI or NVIDIA video cards because you can take advantage of better resolutions. No installation is going to be required for this tool to work.

This application will add new monitor resolutions instead of scaled ones, meaning that you’ll be able to set your new resolution that will be enjoyable if you want to have better resolutions.

It will not scale up the existing resolutions, which can help you create new resolutions without compromising the quality that often comes with upscaling.

Change Nvidia or AMD Resolutions

It doesn’t matter if you have an Nvidia or AMD graphics card. You’ll be able to use this application well.

You have to note that the application will most likely not work on laptops because it does not allow EDID overrides, meaning that it will not work with most laptop graphics cards.

The application does not require any installation whatsoever. You can plug it in and start using it. On the main window – which will open as you open the .exe file – you’ll find a list of all existing resolutions currently with your GPU.

From there, you’ll be able to create new and custom resolutions.

Create Custom Resolutions

This application’s main capability is the ability to give you the support to create new resolutions from scratch. You can tamper with detailed resolutions to change horizontal or vertical active resolutions for new results.

You can also alter some other details, such as sync polarity, sync width, blanking options, and many further detailed instructions.

It’s fair to say that this application will work best for users who already have a decent level of knowledge regarding resolutions.

Lower scaled resolutions will be added to the app automatically, although you can create one yourself, too. You can define parameters that will benefit your monitor – for instance. You can set it for the LCD standard monitor.


Custom Resolution Utility will help you enjoy higher or custom resolutions with almost any graphics card you might have.
