34" Ultra-wide (3440x1440) on ThinkPad T440p - will it work?

2016-01-11, 12:56 PM

Hi,

 

I want to buy Samsung's 34" ultra-wide curved screen monitor (http://www.samsung.com/us/computer/monitors/LS34E790CNS/ZA) and use it on my ThinkPad T440p, which uses Intel HD Graphics 4600 and NVIDIA GeForce GT 730M.

 

Intel's video card can supposedly handle 3840x2160 via DisplayPort, but on https://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Specs-Explained-Video-Card-463/#DisplayPort it says that: "So while companies like AMD and NVIDIA like to say that their DisplayPorts support resolution up to 4096x2160, the actual resolution that you can currently achieve on a single display is 2560x1600 @ 60Hz."

 

T440p has a mini DisplayPort - will it be able to handle the 3440x1440 resolution from Samsung?

 

Any help would be much appreciated! :)

 

Thanks

I just want to confirm that the monitor works perfectly on T440p. The DisplayPort is thankfully in newest standard (1.2), so the monitor can run at 60Hz refresh rate (if on older DP or HDMI, it would only run at 50Hz).

 

However, there are some issues if I use both monitors at the same time. When they go to sleep and I wake them up again the windows are all messed up. I'm sure that this is a driver issue, but I hope that it will be sorted out soon.
