Maximum resolution supported ?
« on: June 27, 2018, 04:43:13 pm »
I have a HP desktop, model 550-110 with a core i-3 4170 processor with HP 4400 integrated graphics running Peppermint 8. My current monitor is a 22" at 1920x1080 resolution at 60Hz.

I am thinking of buying a 27" monitor that has a max resolution of 2560x1440.
The use would be general web browsing, LibreOffice Writer, and watching Youtube videos.
(No gaming or photo editing)
The monitor would be at a viewing distance of 24"
(I'm hesitant of purchasing a 27" monitor with a 1920x1080 resolution as I wouldn't want the
view to be any less sharp than my present 22" monitor at 1920x1080.)

So, the question is, will my HP 4400 integrated graphics will support 2560x1440 at 60Hz ?

( The desktop output to the monitor would be HDMI )
( The HP specs for this processor for HDMI is 4096x2304 @ 24Hz, but I don't know what
that would be @ 60Hz ? )

Depends how the monitor is connected.

The Intel 4400 graphics on your i3-4170  can handle:-

Max Resolution (HDMI 1.4) 4096x2304@24Hz
Max Resolution (DP) 3840x2160@60Hz
Max Resolution (eDP - Integrated Flat Panel) 3840x2160@60Hz (deosn't matter because that's refering to a laptop display)
Max Resolution (VGA) 1920x1200@60Hz

So if it's going to be connected via DisplayPort, then YES, it'll handle full 4k @ 60Hz

Does your system have a DP output (just because the chip can do it, doesn't mean HP added the port) ?

No, my desktop doesn't have a DP output; it just has VGA and HDMI outputs and I don't know
if the HDMI output is version 1.4 or not.

The HDMI output of 4096x2304@24Hz; any way from that spec. to determine
 if it would display 2560x1440@60Hz ?
(That's assuming that my HDMI version is 1.4)
