Hi,

Displayport 1.2 with 4 lanes is meant to support 4k resolutions. However, some GPUs with this techincal description have given 2560x1600 as their maximum resolution under technical information like my 6470m in my Elitebook 8460p. I can't wait to get 4k Monitors but I would be disappointed if my GPU would not support it despite it's sufficient bandwidth, thus being mainly a driver issue?

Can anyone clarify this?

Thanks

Burtan

4K monitors are beyond current times, even a hd7970 isnt enough to play a game on smooth framerates at such resolution, maybe when crossfired. I speculate they will replace 1080p in 2016 or something, but not before. DP 1.2 can get resolutions up to 4096x4096 at 60hz, but you would need a very high end gpu to be even able to select that resolution.

Oh, I wouldn't use it for gaming but for displaying musical sheets where higher resolutions would largely improve the readability.
