I have a Dell XPS Studio 16 laptop with the ATI Mobility Radeon 4670 display adapter. The spec for this device say:

The ATI Mobility Radeon™ HD 4600 series GPUs can upscale video display to 2560x1600 on dual-link monitors which is almost twice the display resolution of 1080p displays.

I can't get my Dell 30" 3007WFP monitor to display at this resolution...it's not even listed as an option in the resolution.

Can anyone help?

What type of connector are you using (i.e. HDMI vs DisplayPort vs VGA etc.)? What operating system do you have? Did you install drivers for that particular monitor? –  Joshua Jun 18 '10 at 17:51
    
Using an HDMI adapter, Windows 7, and yes, the driver is installed for the monitor. –  Angie Jun 18 '10 at 18:06

You would need an adapter from display port to dual link to make use of this resolution.

It's worth a shot, I don't have a DVI to Display Port adapter, I was hoping to get something to work with HDMI...but maybe it isn't possible. –  Angie Jun 18 '10 at 18:41
    
I'm sure we can find $99 in the budget for you somewhere. –  Jake Pearson Jun 18 '10 at 18:42
    
Bought the adapter and it worked like a charm. Thanks for the help. –  Angie Aug 11 '10 at 21:30

The specs page for ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4600 series says that you can use resolutions of upto 1920x1080 with HDMI output.

HDMI output support

Supports all display resolutions up to 1920x1080

Interesting, although I'm only getting 1200x800 resolution to come up...any idea how to get 1920x1080 to come up? –  Angie Jun 18 '10 at 18:39
