Korean IPS with DisplayPort, Macbook Air compatibility 2560x1440

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking of buying one of the Korean 2560x1440 displays for my 2013 Macbook Air and I really don't want to shell out an extra 70-100 bucks for a dual link DVI adapter. Most of those monitors only have DVI inputs but I found some that have DisplayPort as well.

If I get a Thunderbolt to DP cable would I be able to use it with my MBA at 1440p with a monitor like this? http://www.ebay.com/itm/130933197737

Yes.

Cool, thanks.

Also I'm going to be using the same monitor for the Xbox One once its released. I'm going to have it hooked up using the Xbox's own HDMI cable. Now, I know that the games won't be any higher than 1080p but the Xbox should scale it up to 1440p, correct? The UI would be running at 1440p but the games will be upscaled from 1080p(or whatever other resolution) from the Xbox itself.

Is my understanding correct?

Not quite... The Xbox will send whatever signal it can send , whether 1080p or 720p or 1680x1050. That depends on what resolution you specify in the Xbox. The multi input monitors incorporate a scalar which then takes your video signal and up samples it to 1440p for your viewing pleasure.

I see. So as long as the monitor has a scaler the image won't be letterboxed? Do all the multi input monitors have scalers?
