    GTX 960M w/ 4K Computer not working well on 2K monitor

    So I'm using a 4k laptop with a 2560x1440p monitor. My graphics card is a GTX 960m. I have the drivers and all that but for some reason i can't use it to its full advantage on this 32 inch 1440p monitor, as with high settings on games it gets all choppy and suffers low fps.
    My theory was, if I use this 4K computer with a LESS than 4K monitor, than the performance should be just fine. But no, it's definitely worse than my 1080p monitor I used to use this 4K laptop with.
    Before all this, I had tried a 1080p computer with a 4k monitor, and graphics performance suffered. I thought it was just because I was scaling a 1080p computer onto a 4k monitor, and of course the graphics quality would suffer drastically.
    Can anyone explain if my theory was wrong or if I'm doing something wrong?

    I doubt that a 960M (950M, as in your specs?) is adequate for gaming at 2560X1440. The fact that it's OK for a 2D display at 4k does not imply that it'd have enough power for 3D games at 2k.
