is it possible to connect 2 computers to U3011?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Just wonder if it possible to connect two computers to the dell U3011 at full native resolution? I current have have my laptop connect to the U3011 with displayport, would it be possible to connect my main desktop to the dell u3011 via another port also running at full resolution? So when I am just browsing I can just use the laptop and when I want to edit video can use the main rig.

Thanks.

Scenario.

Laptop ---> DisplayPort.

Desktop ---> Dual-Link DVI.

Would that be possible? The only way to hit 2560x1600 is either DP or DL-DVI. Don't believe HDMI will support 1600p at 60Hz. Can someone correct me if I'm wrong?

Then just switch inputs whenever you move to a new machine.

I used HDMI 1.4, I can confirm that it can only do to a maximum of 1920x1200 on my Dell U3011.

You can connect up to 3 full resolution sources 1 through display port and 2 dvi, but the source output (gpu, motherboard) must be dvi or DisplayPort too, to use monitor native resolution
