Korean 27" monitor with Intel X4500 onboard graphics?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hey,

i have an Thinkpad X200 with the Ultrabase docking station and i'm interested to buy one of the korean 27" monitors.

The dockingstation has an DisplayPort which supports up to 2560x1600@60hz. For example a Dell U2711 works without problems (on DisplayPort and with active DVI DL Adapter also on DVI with the 2560x1440). At the moment i use a (passive) DisplayPort to SingleLink DVI Adapter. But i ordered an active DisplayPort to DualLink DVI Adapter which supports up to 2560x1600@60Hz.

The problem is that the sellers write in there auctions that onboard/laptop graphics are not supported. But i dont know why this shouldnt work although the device support this resolution.
I wrote to bigclothcraft and told him that my device with the correct adapter support the full resolution without problems. But he only answers that laptops graphics are not supported without a detailed declaration.

In a german forum a guy told me that he use a koreon monitor on his 15" MacBook Pro (2010 modell with Geforce GT330M) in combination with the active Apple MiniDisplayPort to DualLink DVI Adapter.

So my question is:
Anyone tested this with his laptop or maybe a Thinkpad on the dockingstation with an active DualLink DVI Adapter? Should this work with the Intel X4500 or not?

Best regards

I have an ACHIEVA Shimian 27" 1440p display and I used it with an i3 2100T (HD2000 integrated graphics) and it worked without any problems. It was connected to the DisplayPort of the motherboard using a DisplayPort to DualLink DVI Adapter (Sapphire model). I don't think it matters what kind of integrated graphics you have as long as you have a DisplayPort which is rated to support 1600p resolution. I hope this helps.

Video card should not matter (once in windows) as long as you support 2560x1440. Some cards will not show BIOS, etc.

Ok, thanks. That's what i thought, too. I just try to understand why they say that integrated/onboard/laptop graphic cards are not supported.

The question is why they did not just write "dual link dvi and 2560x1440 support required". Also 5770 is not supported (but i read, that some users have this combination) although it has dual link and 2560x1440 support.

Could you see BIOS with HD2000? (but I dont really need it, because for BIOS and OS-installations i can use the laptop screen) wink.gif
