I have played around with sharpness but it seems the monitor struggles with some letters, for example 'w', look at these pictures

Text looks sharper and more defined on my older 16:9 2k Dell monitor, u2713h.
I never had these kind of monitors with the 21:9 aspect ratio and have seen another post about a similar problem grainy text . So I am not sure if it's 'within standards' to have these artifacts.

Any feedback is appreciated.

At least use the same source for your comparisons. Your pics can have different fonts, different font smoothing applied etc.

Did you recalibrate your ClearType after changing monitors?
No I didn't, but neither I did in the other Dell monitor.

The pictures I posted are from the same monitor, but you are right I should post pictures from two different monitors. Mine was also a general question about ultrawide monitors.
