How to obtain 5K resolutions

Hi,

 

You previously stated that "Regarding 5K resolutions ... it usually requires two DisplayPort* connections to achieve this resolution."

 

i'm not sure how that works? My monitor has hte one DisplayPort connection and i've put it to a graphics card through a DisplayPort 1.4 cable.

 

If you can elaborate that would be appreciated.

What processor model number?

What operating system? Windows 10? Which version? 1903?

What motherboard/device? Provide the model number and manufacturer.

Hello TNguy211

 

Thank you for posting in the Intel Community.

 

The Intel® HD graphics can handle two 4k outputs with a Display Port (DP) 1.2 but to handle the 5K resolution the display has to be able to handle two DP port input and be able to handle the resolution.

Thanks Leonardo,

 

I'm a little confused.

 

I have an Intel hd graphics 4600 and that only has one DisplayPort port. My LG monitor 34WK95U-W one has one DisplayPort port for one DP cable. So i'm not sure how my intel graphics can even enable two DP port inputs?

 

Can you clarify please?

Hello TNguy211

 

The Intel® Core™ i7-4790K Processor (https://ark.intel.com/content/www/us/en/ark/products/80807/intel-core-i7-4790k-processor-8m-cache-up...)

has the capability to use the following Video outputs:

 

Max Resolution (HDMI 1.4):3840x2160@24Hz

Max Resolution (DP): 3840x2160@60Hz

Max Resolution (eDP -Integrated Flat Panel) 3840x2160@60Hz

Max Resolution (VGA): 1920x1200@60Hz

 

You can see that the processor

can handle two 4k video outputs

 

In your case since the

motherboard and display only have one DP port on each your hardware set up will

not let you set the 5K resolution.
