I have DisplayLink 1.6.1 and 1440p on a 4k screen is still only available as a non-retina low-res option. I can get a noticeably better image using BetterDisplay (formerly BetterDummy) + Mirroring, but it's still blurry. If I use BetterDisplay + Streaming, it's a bit sharper, but the display performance goes down and it's still not nearly as crisp as a native 1440p high-res option.
Version 1.8 Alpha allows me to select the correct resolution (great improvement!), but it still looks soft. It isn't as blurry as the low-resolution version, but about as blurry as a fake display created with BetterDisplay. A natively connected display at the same 1.5x scale (2560p on my 4k monitor) or the lower 2x (1080p) DisplayLink resolution are much sharper. From what I can tell, it looks like the new high-DPI resolution is not super-sampled, but rendered at native 4k.
