  3. What's the maximum resolution supported by a DVI cable?
2 years ago#1
I have a DVI to HDMI converter cable running to my second monitor (graphics card is the DVI part, screen is the HDMI part), and it won't let me go over 1360x768. This is, obviously, problematic because everything on the second screen looks a lot larger than the first screen, more blurry, etc.

I thought DVI cables could support up to 1080p or higher? I know my monitor can, I used to use it with my PS3.

In that case, why wouldn't my monitor be able to go above 1360x768?

I don't know what the problem is, but it isn't your cable.

Perhaps the HD 7850 can't handle two 1080p screens at once? That just seems silly to me but the whole situation is odd from top to bottom.

No, that card should be able to do 4k. Unless it's malfunctioning.

Could be drivers. I've had so many problems with ATI drivers, I'll never buy another ATI card again.
