I have a Macbook Pro 15" mid 2012, and I want to add an external display running at 2560 x 1600. Given that I want a future proof display, I purchased a 4K monitor. (LG27UD88)
Of course I know it will not run 4K resolution, but I was hoping to would at least allow me to run 2560 x 1600 as supported by the NVIDIA GT650M. Turns out I only achieve 1920 x 1080 :(
I connected with a purchased mini-DisplayPort to DisplayPort cable. Could it be a limitation of the cable? Will connecting via a mini-DP to HDMI cable change anything?
The 1920 x 1080 resolution is really superb and crispy, but it's a bit an expensive HD monitor...
Anyone any tips ?
