No I did not Florian did. And he meant "a high dpi display with a
vertical resolution of 1440" not "any display with a vertical
resolution of 1440"

Yes I know a hidpi display is one with ... a high dpi value ;)
What GNOME does is basically this: If the DPI (computed from screen
size *and* resolution) is bigger then 192 it will turn on hidpi
support which means
setting a scale factor of two.
So if you have 2560x1440 display with a size of 22 inch .. it won't do anything.
If you have a 2560x1440 display with a size of 12 inch ... it will
turn on hidpi scaling.
