Hello. I just bought a RX 580. I installed all the drivers and I use it with hdmi. My tv has a 1360 x 768 resolution. I noticed that when i use a higher resolution like 1080p it looks really bad. It's because 1080p isn't de real resolution? But when I use my ps4, in this same Tv, it is in 1080p. I don't understand.

Please list your full system's specs like so:
CPU:
Motherboard:
Ram:
SSD/HDD:
GPU:
PSU:
Chassis:
OS:

Which drivers are you working with on your system for the GPU? Did you have a prior discrete GPU or were you working with the iGPU prior to the RX580.
 
It's probably just because the scaler in your TV is really bad. The PS4 may render games at their native 1080p or 900p resolution internally, but dynamically scales it to your TV's native resolution. And the scaler in the PS4 is pretty good.

The scaler in the RX580 is also really good. You use that by setting the output resolution at 1366 x 768 and it will resample any other resolution videos, etc to that and look fine. While it's overkill for gaming at 768p, you can either crank up the antialiasing to not waste its power, or render the game at 1080p and downsample it to 768p using Virtual Super Resolution (AMD's equivalent to DSR)

Yes. When I use the HDMI in the PS4, TV shows that the resolution is 1080p and it looks very nice. I don't know if games run in that resolution, but it looks good. But in the PC, with the RX 580, when I put 1080 resolution in Display Config (in desktop), the TV notifies that the resolution is in 1080i. I know it's worse than 1080p, but why in PS4, with the same TV and same HDMI, resolution is 1080p and in the PC is 1080i?

I saw that then I put 1080i and I set sharpness to 0 (it's on 50 default) and it looks a bit better. Anyway, at 768p looks way better than 1080i. Also in games, when I use 1080 the tv shows 1080i. I know my TV is bad, but why in PS4 1080p and not in my PC? Isn't supposed the RX 580 to be better than ps4's gpu?

Virtual Super Resolution it's not compatible

I really need help with this. Now 1080i looks better than 768p. 768p is the real resolution of my tv and now it looks horrible. The thing is, I refuse to play in 1080p in a 768p monitor (as I said before, it is impossible to get 1080p, I only can get 1080i), and somehow I fixed the resolution at 768p (it looked terrible) by deleting the audio hdmi controller of amd, and it started to look really good. But that take me into another problem. Games didn't run because "dx11 feature level 10.0 is required to run the engine". In the solution of this problem, the resolution problem came back. I fixed that dx11 error returning to the previous version of the video controller, and obviusly, the screen was fuzzy again.

I don't understand. I tried to fix the 768p resolution following the same steps as I did before but I can't get it. The screen is fuzzy at that resolution, and that's the real resolution of the tv. Now I'm with 1080i, but its really not smoother. When I scroll in some web the letters distorted.
