What Ultrawide Monitor supports my W520 NVIDIA QUADRO 2000M ?

2020-04-30, 13:24 PM

I'd like to get an ultrawide monitor (34" or 38").
I see that the display port supports up to 2560x1600

Unfortunately, most of the UWM 34/38 inches have a resolution of 3440x1440.
What happens if use sucha a monitor, doeas it "scale" up ?
Any experience with ultrawides ?
I need more space. I0m not gaming, I=m not doing anything graphical. 
I've jost got more space for my boring windows (mostly excel, SAP, email)

Should work no problem. 

 

W520 works fine even with a 4K screen (3840x2160 @ 30Hz due to old DisplayPort)

Thanks.
Quite opposite compared to what someone told me on reddit :

 

"[...]If you try to output to a 3440x1440 monitor @ 60Hz you will probably exceed the capacity of the DisplayPort connection
and you will probably just get a blank screen/no output (this is what happens if I try to output to my 4K TV 3840x2160 @ 60Hz)
However if I output to my 4K TV at 30Hz it will work, just limited to 30Hz (frames per second).
If the monitor supports 50Hz, the W520 should be able to output 3440x1440 at 50Hz, but not guaranteed"
