Achieva Shimian Monitor Club - Page 163

post #1621 of 3508
Attention: Anyone who has a Shimian (not the multi-port) and an ATI card with HDMI. Can you please check if you can output native resolution (2560 x 1440) to the Shimian with a regular HDMI to DVI single link adapter with ToastyX's patch: http://120hz.net/showthread.php?270-Modified-AMD-ATI-driver-to-allow-higher-refresh-rates/page15

I'm trying to figure out if I can get the Shimian to work with my laptop HDMI port and apparently the patch has already been tested to work with the 2B Catleap over a single link HDMI to single link DVI and it basically uncaps the pixel clock limit effectively allowing you to push more than 165Mhz over a single link DVI connection.

Please test this if you can. I would truly appreciate it!

HDMI and S/L DVI do not have enough bandwidth for 1440P AFAIK. A patch wouldn't change that...

They do. HDMI 1.3+ had it's maximal pixel clock increased to 340Mhz. The only thing is that single link DVI ports by spec cannot accept more than 165Mhz. Unless you patch the driver and go over the spec limitations keeping in mind that both the graphics card and the monitor fully support 2560 x 1440 @ 60Hz. Most graphics cards support up to 2560 x 1600 @ 60Hz by default so this is definitely not like an overclocking type of situation. It is more just to bypass the spec limitations (which IMO should have been fixed to allow greater than 165Mhz on single link DVI).

My Shimians arrived today from green-sum (I ordered them Sunday night). I'm very impressed with the shipping speed. Both were well-packaged and have great quality and no dead pixels as far as I can tell, but one has a far warmer color temperature than the other (easily fixed with a few minutes of calibration though).

Would I buy them again? Definitely.

Which model are those? The "lite" versions?

Nice! .. would applying the same color profile to both bring them into line I wonder?

I used a Hazro profile from TFT Central on my Shimian.

Got my Shimian today from Acessorieswhole. Super seller, display came in perfect condition, no dead/stuck pixels, no excessive light bleed.
Color saturation is unbelievable!! Shipping time was unreal, 2 days to the US east coast!! Very happy camper.
