Can Windows support 3008 x 1692 resolution on a 4K display?
Posted by: Lux Interior

I have a 4k monitor hooked up to my Mac, which I run at a scaled resolution of 3008*1692, via displayport.


I tried to do the same on a Windows (10) laptop (lenovo), but it doesn't "offer" this as a resolution. Also using displayport.

I googled that resolution, and all I get are Mac-related pages.

Any ideas?

Laptop has Intel graphics and 32 GB RAM installed. It's about 4 years old (L4-Something). It will drive two 30" LCDs at 1600p.

Maybe.

You should be able to add a custom resolution in the Intel Graphics Command Center using these instructions:

I'm on a NUC in Windows with Intel integrated graphics and have Intel Graphics Command Center installed. However when I click on the Display option the idiot thing just sits and spins (!) at Refreshing.

How, eh, refreshing to have Windows fail again to do something useful.

Otherwise, Windows does have a scaling feature. 125% should be close enough

3840/1.25 = 3072
2160/1.25 = 1728

Running it half of the XDR display is a little odd... is there a reason you want that specific resolution?

It's been six years, but I have used preference file editors to get specific resolutions in Win 7 (Win10 should be very similar). This is the process for a Dell that I would guess has at least a 4th generation Intel Core CPU/GPU.

I am trying to replace a dead 30" monitor with 2560x1600 resolution.

I have a 32" 4K and the 3008x1692 is the closest I can get.

It will run at 1440 just fine, but for a 30"+ monitor, I prefer the 1600p.

Hi guys, I tried this again later in the day and it worked perfectly, don't know what the issue was earlier. Manually set my 2560x1440 monitor to a 1792x1008 resolution for Rocket League. Intel iGPU on this NUC gets 60fps at 900p but around 52fps at 1080p and wanted to split the difference. Turns out 1008p is perfect for this!
