I managed to get the 2560x1440 resolution to work on my new VPC-Z2 - via HDMI output (no PMD, built-in Intel HD 3000). You only need a good HDMI->DVI cable (or an adapter, I haven't tested that). This is needed because HDMI input of U2711 appears to be limited to 1080p - so you need to plug your Z HDMI output in the DVI input of the U2711. It is limited to 35 Hz, though (as it is using single-link bandwidth) - but it is working nevertheless! And it looks quite stunning, I'd say Intel's own "custom resolution" tool in the graphics control panel is refusing to accept needed values so this needs a bit more manual work Below you will find steps needed to get this to work. Please note that those steps are related to Dell's U2711 monitor only!!! DTD data can be monitor specific and if you have a different monitor you will need to calculate monitor-specific DTD data. All this is on your risk, as fiddling with display timings can be dangerous for your monitors! You need the following: - DTD Calculator: Custom Resolution Tool for Intel Graphics: Easier Overscan Correction - AVS Forum With this tool, you can enter the EDID/DTD data and also change it. It has a nice "Registry Hack" option allowing to directly upload the DTD timings so Intel's driver can use them. So, for DELL U2711 MONITOR SPECIFIC!!!! FOR OTHERS YOU WILL HAVE TO GET THE RIGHT DTD VALUES AS THESE WON'T WORK! - - DTD data is available from here : http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/archive/1479962 (provided by user: dkh) I am also including it here so you can directly paste it in DTD tool: - Paste these values in the DTD Calculator (run it as Admin, by the way) on the "Interpret EDID" page - Click on "Interpret EDID" button - you should get the 2560x1440 resolution values on the left - Go to "Registry Hack" page, add a new DTD field, and type "Get Calculated". After it is added, you will be asked to reboot your computer - After reboot, you should be able to select 2560x1440 resolution - enjoy your new stunning view If it does not work - doublecheck that the DTD data is actually added to registry - if "No of DTDs" is 0 or "DTD 1" shows bunch of zeros, it means that the data was not saved - repeat the "interpret edid" step, and then go to "Registry Hack" and just click "Get Calculated".
