Recently bought 2k(1440p) resolution monitor and set it up on 2 PC's, one of them r9 390x and another HD5850 which instead 2k res shows just 1920x1200 by HDMI cable.
Couldn't figure out what's wrong. I know Max res of it is 2560x1600. Guys told me it might be outdated HDMI port and recommended use DVI but i couldn't because no DVI port at display, just DP and HDMI.
Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks.


PS. FIXED

Latest driver set for that HD5850? Per this specs link, the card is capable of very high resolution..

But a footnote indicates 'user configuration' may be required!

check your HDMI cable - version 1.2 only goes up to 1920×1200p/60 Hz, you need at least 1.3+ to get up to 2560×1600p/60 Hz, and you won't see certified 4k until you get to version 2.0 I think. you might be able to get away with some hi-speed versions below 2.0, but your mileage may vary...
