I had this same thought when i was testing a while back. It won't work though. Also, how are you hooking it up to your laptop? Does your laptop even have a dual link dvi port or are you hooking it up another way?
Edit: Nevermind I see one on the back. That will not work with this monitor since it is only DVI-I.

DVI-I is kinda irrelevant.

The key is whether it's dual link or not. Which, according to the specifications, his laptop does not have a dual-link DVI port. (You can have Dual Link DVI-I ports as well as Dual Link DVI-D ports.)

As for the adapter you need, 44cmitchell, the amazon "Accell B087B-003J UltraAV miniDisplayPort/DVI-D Dual-Link Adapter" one is the correct adapter. The cheap one will not work.

Has anyone bought the matte screen monitor?

http://www.ebay.ca/itm/Matte-Screen-Yamakasi-Catleap-HDMI-1-4a-Q271-LED-2560x1440-S-IPS-Monitor-HDMI-/140891848394?pt=Computer_Monitors&hash=item20cdcefeca#ht_23268wt_1163

I want to buy this due to my monitor being very close to a window.
My first rig.

Just got my new Q271 with multi-mode, but I'm having a horrible time trying to get it to display in native 2560x1440!

First of all, I have an HD 6850 flashed to 6870 for the unlocked shaders. Runs fine, no problems. Running latest CCC drivers 12.10.

The problem is I only have the choice of resolution up to 1920x1080. I'm using the supplied Dual DVI cable so the cable shouldn't be an issue. I've tried both DVI ports as I understand only one of them can run the higher native resolution, but both have the same issue. I think it has to be a driver issue, but I've tried all sorts of stuff with no luck:

- Older ATI drivers as well as the current 12.11 beta
- The Yamasaki OC monitor driver (currently running the default Windows PnP driver)
- Powerstrip to try to add the 2560x1440 as a custom resolution. Didn't work, although both Powerstrip and Moninfo will detect the monitor's max resolution.

The only thing that makes sense to me is for some reason the graphics card driver isn't detecting the 2560x1440 profile that is held in the Detailed Timings section of the EDID. It only will pull the standard display modes which go up to 1920x1080, but not the non-standard mode where the 2560x1440 is stored.

Any ideas on what I can do? I've tried searching the forums but am all out of ideas. Anybody have a similar issue?

Just got my Catleap Q270 today, and I'm very happy so far other than the wobbly stand that could snap at any second.
Just quick question, what's the best colour adjustment profile from Toastyx to use for gaming?

One of my friends had a problem similar to this, not on a catleap but it's still relevant.
Go into ccc and make a custom resolution or add it to the list of preset resolutions, I'm not sure the exact method since my friend was nvidia but go and have a look for things along those lines and give it a go.

Thanks, I just figured it out! It was a hardware issue. I have an Asus DirectCU II that has a DVI switch to change to dual DVI. Changed the switch, rebooted, and voila! Have full resolution.

Here's an article that references it and shows the picture. Hopefully this helps the next person.

How do I figure out if my Catleap can be overclocked to 120 hz?
I tried reading page after page but I can't find any info.
I'm running a single gtx 680.
Thanks.

I just joined the club, and forum! Lots of great info. I received my Q270 today, and it phenomenal. Nice, bright display that is easy on the eyes. Great viewing angles. I wish the stand was better (and adjustable so I can point it down to me). I had a bit of time getting the monitor to work as I didn't realize my 6850 wouldn't drive my 23" 1920x1080 monitor in addition to this monitor. Anyway around this?

I love the monitor. Works great on my Hackintosh under Mac OS X and WIndows 7.

You cant plug a Dual DVI cable in a display port. If in a DVI-I port it may work but not at 2560V1440.... no way. I have read that it does not work properly in a DVI-I port, only in Dual-DVI.
It may be $2000 but its still a labtop.

Thanks.

Did you buy it 8 months ago?
Did you pay ~$600 for it?

If both of these answers are no, then no, your Catleap is not overclockable.
