I have an Asus laptop with a Intel® HD Graphics 3000 and NVIDIA 540M. I also have a HTPC server with an old 8500GT video card with a DVI and HDMI output.
Articles on the internet say that in order to use 2560x1440 on a computer, you need one of these two:
- Dual Link DVI
- HDMI 1.3
The laptop only has a HDMI port and unfortunately I was unable to find out the version of HDMI of the video cards. I would also have to buy a DVI<>HDMI cable for the monitor to laptop in that case. How do I find out what version of HDMI the video card supports?
The ideal situation would be being able to connect the monitor to my laptop. Possibly an alternative would be to connect the monitor to the HTPC server and maybe find a solution to show the laptop's display in 2560x1440 resolution via the server.
