Thinkpad Helix 36986CG 2560x1440 DisplayPort

2016-11-01, 0:56 AM

Is the Helix 36986CG able to drive 2560x1440 pixel dimensions?

 

Is there some special cable needed?

 

I'm using a mini displayport to hdmi adapter, but maybe I should just use a mini displayport to displayport adapter?

 

I've got a fujitsu P27T-6 IPS / VL-270VSWL monitor

Did you manage to get this working? I used such an adapter to connect my Lenovo LT3053p (2560 x 1600) to my Helix 2 => no signal. The same connector works perfectly when connecting an X220. So it is not the same signal leaving the mini DP plug.

Where you able to get it to work?  

I also have a Helix and want to buy 2560x1440 monitor but I want to know if it will work.

Didn´t get it to work. All video connectors (VGA, mini HDMI, mini DP) just provide FHD signal.
