I've just upgraded to a Dell u2913WM which has the new and unusual native resolution of 2560x1080.

I've tried everything I can think of: HDMI, Dual-mini-HDMI (both slots),  & DVI. Still, my AMD Radeon HD6870 (1GB) doesn't seem to want to cater for 2560x1080 resolution. The best I can get is 1920 x 1080m which leaves a horribly stretched screen. (Curiously even though the display is SET at 2560x1080, the actual display is still only 1920x1080.)

Am I wrong or is the 6870 just not the card for this resolution?

If not, can anyone recommend what card is?

It just occured to me to add something. Like all other (or so it appears) manufacturers of graphics cards, AMD resorts to the ubiquitous "up to" as an indication of the various resolutions catered for; but saying that a card will cater for "up to" (say) 2560x1600 does not mean that it will properly accommodate (again, say) 2560x1080!

I've wasted this entire day looking for a card (and at this stage ANY BRAND WILL DO) that tells me in no uncertain terms that it WILL cater for 2560x1080!

AMD, if you don't want to lose out to the competition, you need to be more specific with your specifications.
