Assuming your screen is DVI-I-1

xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --scale 1.5x1.5
Scales the output.

checking is better then "thinking" ;-)

Check "xrandr -q" for supported modes, outputs and current mode and use "xrandr --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1600x1200 --scale 1x1" to set it

This blurring would however impact absolutely everything, every font in every window and every other content.
