    just thought I would share something I have noticed on my 2016 MacBook Pro with touch at. I run my resolution set at 1920 x 1200 and I noticed at first it looked horrible in windows but then randomly would look great. The graphics card is what causes this. If you have the same problem go to you mac system settings and disable graphics switching. This will make windows fonts appear really crisp and smooth. It's something with the way the radeon card renders fonts compared to the intel hd graphics. The radeon does a much better job. Now my windows looks just like native 1920 x 1200 on a windows laptop. The downside to this is that your battery life will suffer from using the discrete graphics card all the time. But for me the tradeoff is worth it because i spend a lot of time in windows for development.
