Hey all,

I just picked up a LG 29UM57 Ultra wide 21:9 2560 x 1080 monitor that I intended on using via one of the display ports on my Sapphire Radeon HD6950. Unfortunately, I had a big "OOOPS!" moment when I went to plug the monitor into the card and the LG didn't have a display port like I thought but only 2 HDMI ports . So I said "what the hell", let me see what it looks like at 1080p. Well, much to my surprise... it defaulted to 2560 x 1080! I was under the assumption that the HDMI port on the 6900 series only puts out 1920 x 1200. It makes me wonder if my card will do 4K off the DP1.2 ports? I hear some 6950/70s have the ability to reach into the 7000 series as far as resolution goes. Here's some pics and screens and the box. What do you think?

Thanks in advance!
