And my graphics card's specs can definitely push 2560x1440 via its DP port...but is it possible that the DP port on the monitor won't be able to handle...like, an incoming 2560x1440 signal via DP?
(will report back either way)
Highly unlikely. If it's got DisplayPort, I don't see why it wouldn't run 1440p; all revisions of DisplayPort including the first 1.0 revision have support 1440p resolutions.

Your DP -> DVI adapter wasn't up to pushing 1440p because it's a passive adapter; the same is true of your displayport -> DVI cable. Both are actually single link DVI connections, not dual link DVI. You need an active adapter to run it that way ($50+ adapter). Your HDMI port on your monitor may not support 1.4a, or it may be the HDMI port on your laptop that does not support HDMI 1.4a.

Thank you. Is there a way to test the above bolded part? This thread is 400 pages long and all discussing the same monitor (right?) so I've got to think that we know by now whether the monitor's capable of HDMI 1.4a...?

As for my graphics card, is there a diagnostic I can run that will tell me that? (it's a NVIDIA® GeForce® GT540M graphics with 2.0GB Video Memory and Optimus, and DisplayPort and HDMI ports)

It's not a property of your graphics card incidentally; I need to know the exact model of your laptop to confirm.

From what I can tell, your HDMI should be an HDMI 1.4a port. Should be. Everything I've read says (when it bothers to) that the HDMI port is a 1.4 port - but I haven't seen anyone actually do it with a HDMI 1.4 monitor and HDMI 1.4 cable.

wooo just received my 27inch non pivot monitor a day early, it only took 2-3 days from Korea to Canada. It looks amazing, ill be purchasing another. No issues and no dead pixels that ive noticed, some backlight bleed but nothing crazy/

as it's been stated. either use a dp cable. or you have to use a dp to dl-dvi ACTIVE adapter, but you have multi input crossover so just stick with the single dp cable and call it a day cause obviously cheaper than a dp to dl-dvi active adapter. Hdmi can work, but it might be the hdmi out on that card not letting you get that res. Display port is the best option and best choice regardless and the cables are as cheap as $6 on amazon depending on length.

Hi folks,,

As i'm thinking about upgrading my GPU, I'm considering for the first time an AMD card, namely a 7970. Haven't decided yet, but I thought I could give AMD a chance.
So far the only card interesting me is the MSI 7970 Lightning, but it doesn't have dual-link DVI, only single-link DVI.

It has a display port though, so, would it work (at 1440p of course laugher.gif ) on a crossover 27Q using an adapter display-port > DVI dual link?

That's insane that, that card does not. You are already looking at more money having to buy an dp to active dl-dvi adapter.

buy a card with dl-dvi! it's 2013! all nvidia cards have dl-dvi-d and almost all have dl-dvi-i, for some reason amd or specific amd card manufacturers likes to play weird and out dated on some cards. That or amd tries to force you to use dp, but as you can see you are already over the cost of another amd card with dl-dvi or nvidia card because of additional adapter. which imo makes no sense biggrin.gif

Just don't get the MSI lighning. There is plenty of 7970s with DVI-DL.

Thats why Nvidia uses Memory Interface of 256-bit and Memory Bandwidth of 192.2 GB/sec. In my opinion, this is much more OUTDATED.


AMD = 264GB/s memory bandwidth


If I were you, I would get the SAPPHIRE 100351SR Radeon HD 7970 3GB 384-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card OC with Boost

True really doesn't matter if you don't have the horsepower on the card to begin with.. but not having dl-dvi ports. say whatttt!
