Trying to establish if this card can support 2560x1080 via the Display Port and if it can do so over a HDMI cable as the monitor only supports HDMI input.


I have purchased a COMSOL 4K ULTRA HD DisplayPort to HDMI 4K2K Adapter that supports HDMI formats 2160p, 1080p, 1080i, 720p, 576p & 576i  and 4K resaolution 3840x2160@30Hz


I realise this is a legacy card but wanted to cover all bases before investing in another card.


The physical setup is DELL OPTIPLEX 9010 with an onboard Intel HD 4000 gpu that supports 2 displayport outputs and a VGA output. These work well and are driving 2 of the 3 monitors we need to run at 2560x1080.


The third monitor is hooked to the AMD RADEON HD 7470 PCI card. This card has a DisplayPort and DVI outputs. I have the COMSOL adapter in the PCI card and a HDMI cable that was supplied with the monitor to the third monitor. But Windows Display Adapater settings and the Catalyst software indicate that the max I can get to is 1920x1080


The monitors are 3 x LG 29UM59A-P all identical


Would appreciate any feedback or ideas.
