- gfx card: nVidia GeForce GT 530
- monitor: Samsung C27H711 (2560x1440, connected over HDMI cable)
- OS: Windows 8.1 Pro 64bit
Windows starts in 1920x1080, the Display Control panel applet shows that as maximum resolution.
If I define a custom resolution of 2560x1440 in the nVidia Control Panel and activate it, the picture is very blurry and the monitors OSD menu claims it is still 1920x1080.
The nVidia release notes list 2048x1536 as the maximum supported standard resolution (I wonder when they'll add 4K modes, they are pretty standard if you ask me).
On the other hand the GT 530 home page lists:
Maximum Digital Resolution: 2560x1600 So it should work.
The question is: how to set things up to use the monitors native resolution of 2560x1440?
