I imagine this is a wording thing, there is a difference between benig able to "watch HD movies" and "watch movies in HD". The iPad can take a HD source, and scale it to display. Commonly (although not officially) HD modes can be denoted by their number of scan lines (720p = 720 progressive, or non-interlaced, horizontal rows of pixels), and in this case ...

Finally I found this. Looks like the default EDID configuration for Dell displays is not quite right. On that post there's also a ruby script that suposedly generates the right file for your display, but it ended up screwing even more my resolution. I downloaded the file from the first post, and after copying it to /System/Library/Displays/Overrides and ...

Running sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.windowserver.plist DisplayResolutionEnabled -bool true nd restarting worked for me: I only tested it with the internal display of an iMac though.

If you are talking about the non-Retina version, then the highest it can go is 2560 x 1600 pixels for one display. (Source (under "Graphics and Video Support")). If you are talking about the Retina version, then it can also go up to 2560 x 1600 pixels, but up to two displays. (Source (under "Graphics and Video Support")) Conclusion: you should still be ...

I have a MacBook pro 15" retina and a Seiki 4k monitor. The monitor works great at 2160x3840 with HDMI plugged into the MacBook HDMI port. I bought an ACCELL Minidisplayport to HDMI adapter (Accell says it works @4K and is compliant with HDMI 1.4 and DisplayPort 1.2 high bit rate). I can only get 1080x1920.

Retina must be supported by the app for it to be displayed in Retina. If the app does not support Retina then the app will not be displayed in Retina. You may be able to force Retina for an app with Retinizer: Retinizer is a small app I wrote that allows apps that aren’t retina ready and are displayed pixelated at 1x to display their UI widgets at ...

I don't think an ordinary DVI connection would be enough to reach a 2560x1440 resolution. For that you'd need a dual-link DVI connection, and in your case a mini-DisplayPort to dual-link DVI converter like this one. It costs $99, but you could probably get a generic Chinese clone on DealExtreme or eBay for much less. I can't speak for the mini-DisplayPort to ...

You can get full resolution with mini DisplayPort to DisplayPort or mini DisplayPort to Dual-link DVI. Dual-link DVI supports up to 2560x1600 pixels resolution. DisplayPort supports that resolution or even higher. You will not get full resolution with mini DisplayPort to DVI. DVI is limited to 1920x1200 or something similar. You usually won't get full ...

The videos remain sharp on the retina display because they're scaled down to half their original size (a 720p video is 1280x720, but displayed at 640x360 on YouTube). Images on webpages are usually blurry because in order to display at the same physical size as on a non-retina display, they have to be scaled up 2x (unless the website provides 2x source ...

According to Microsoft, they've supported Retina Display since version 14.2.4. If you are using an older version of Office 2011, then you should upgrade.

Yes, I can confirm to you they are exact the same. Photo's are exact the same format and file-size. You can also verify this yourself by connecting your iPhone to your PC using the USB cable and get one picture from it. Check the size, resolution and format. Now open your Photostream and do exact the same.

Over HDMI that machine can only do 1920x1200. Need Thunderbolt or MiniDP->DP or DVI to get 2560x1440 according to EveryMac & those screens have more input options than you could ever need; I'd go miniDP to miniDP as simplest solution. That's what I use here on the same monitor, but DVI-DVI on my second [different machine, different options]

According to this page on EveryMac.com the resolutions you want to run should be supported. The problem might be the adaptor. I would try a PRAM reset (restart while holding down Command-Option-P-R), or possibly an SMC reset, detailed in Apple's Support system. If these don't work, I'd try a different adaptor. Good Luck.

Here is the official link that says that you can connect a 4k monitor but at 30HZ, and on some setups (e.g. macbook pro retina late 2013) at 60HZ http://support.apple.com/kb/ht6008 Also, the support article on thunderbolt FAQ is relevant to what monitors can be driven at high resolutions: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3382#11

1440x900 is the native resolution for 15'' non Macbook Pros, and the given (best/default) resolution for 15'' rMBP with the pixel doubling effect taken into account, as it is. The analytics don't distinguish between the two, so the most you can infer from the data is that the most common model is a 15'' Macbook Pro.

It requires a kext swap to an older graphics driver. They're probably trying to phase out older mac mini models with the release of the new ones. Duplicate: Lost ability to choose 3440x1440 resolution after Yosemite upgrade

The answer is Yes and No, depending on the app developers. I purchased iPhone 6 Plus for the hope that I can see bigger text. But apparently, not every user or developer thinks the same. On my iPhone 6 Plus, I turned on the "Zoom" mode in "Display & Brightness" for my aging eyesight. What it does is to render the text bigger. It works very well in ...

Best for retina = every on-screen pixel is represented by two pixels on the display More space = every on-screen pixel is represented by one pixel on the display. In between these two settings every on-screen pixel is represented by 1.5 pixels on the display. Because there is no such thing as half a pixel, the drawing is not exact so there will be ...

Well none of this worked for me. This is what I did before I found the issue. After the computer would come back on after sleep (macbook pro mavericks, screaming computer with 8gigs ram, retina) the right side monitor, out of the 2 monitors I have plugged in by VGA->DVI, continued to be reset from 1600x900 to 800x600. I would: Unplug the DVI port from ...

It depends of what you mean by "will look the same". It looks the same only in the way that the elements on your screen are displayed in the same size as if it was a 1280x800 screen. The aim of the retina displays is to display more details, to do that, what it does is that it displays things at the same size a half resolution screen would have done but ...

1080p - The Resolution is 1920x1080 pixels, sent at 60 complete frames per second. --> Hold alt key before pressing Scaled to see all resolution supported. If you use the "Underscan slider" it will allow you to get higher resolution at the cost of screen refresh rate. The reason we use 50/60 Hz refresh rate is the human eye can not see screen refresh ...

Ricardo is correct in his answer of @3x, but I'll take a shot at answering your question as well. If you're working from Retina resolution assets already, the upscale factor would be an additional 1.5x for the iPhone 6 Plus. For example, your 88px by 88px Retina icon would have to be up-scaled to a resolution one and a half times that amount for the iPhone ...

get a Mini DisplayPort / Thunderbolt to DisplayPort Cable $17.99 or less, thats what i did works fine, although photoshop still displays non retina so have to scale to 50% which is a pain.

From Everymac - The standard configuration of this model has an LED-backlit 15.4" widescreen TFT active-matrix "glossy" display (1440x900 native resolution), but it also was available via custom configuration with a "high-resolution glossy" 1680x1050 display and a "high-resolution antiglare" 1680x1050 display for an additional US$100 and US$150, ...

To see all graphics supported modes use the alt key before clicking on Scaled in display preferences. To see it in 19:9 use a Thunderbolt cable to a TV. (assuming you have those) If you have a Mac like I do (MBA 2012) then using the Thunderbolt you can get up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on your HDTV. Intel HD Graphics 4000 Dual display and video mirroring: ...

Today I made this happen on my Mac Book Pro 15" Retina Late 2013 model by simply using a HDMI cable. Apparently recent version of HDMI supports 2560x1440 resolution... You then have to configure you monitor to Not do any magic picture improvements and set Sharpness to 0 to avoid shadows and unclear text.

I don't know if this is the answer you are looking for, but I have a 2013 13" Macbook Pro with 2 1920 x 1080 monitors attached. I'm running the newest version of Mavericks and windows 7. At first when I was in unity, all my windows were huge and I couldn't figure out why. I tried to change the resolution of windows but that messed everything up and I had to ...

Technically, it would be possible. But apple doesn't offer an upgrade price, so you're only option is buying the screen for the rather high "stock" price. Selling yours on ebay and getting a model you want is probably cheaper

By selecting the far-right setting for resolution within System Preferences, you are seemingly increasing the screen resolution to a value greater than 2880x1800. This is exactly why you are seeing an image with greater dimensions. What the display settings allow you to do is scale resolutions so words and images all appear larger or smaller on the display ...
