    Just wondering as been having some difficulty getting my Del U2711 2560x1440 to play nicely with my Aero. I have my most of my apps like cinema 4d, after effects etc, all scaling up well to the 4uhd display but no matter how I calibrate the scaling on the external monitor it always looks terrible, fuzzy and pixelated. Even tried forcing it with the nvdia controls but no joy. I'm using the mini HDMI port to HDMI in the monitor, before I go out and spend 50 quid on a thunderbolt to HDMI cable is there anything I should try and would the usbc/tb be the solution?

    2560x1080@60hz requires HDMI2.0. Not sure if the monitor support that, but you may consider using a HDMI2.0 cable? Or just using DP instead.

    But the way, plug in built-in HDMI/DP will use dGPU to output your content, while link with thunderbolt uses the iGPU.

    Thanks for your replies guys, I tried HDMI output at 55 Hz using CVT-reduced black timing and it has worked a charm. The external monitor is now pin sharp as my laptop display
