dual monitor high resolution

Using a dell pc with an amd firepro 2270 and two monitors with the max resolution of 2560 x 1600. One of the monitors is a Philips 272C4. The firepro detects this monitor with a highest resolution of 1920x1200, but the monitor is capable for 2560 x 1440. How can the  firepro card support the 2560 x 1440 of the Philips monitor? tia.

Maybe the cable is bad? From what I gather it also supports display port and so does your monitor. I'd try connecting the two via display port.

are you able to get the higher resolution with just one monitor with the second one disabled?
that is a lower-end card (site shows 512mb/1gb memory) and may not be able to handle that high resolution on 2 monitors

no, with just the Philips monitor, the resolution remains the same.

Check the specs of your card. If you are using an Analog output, it is limited to a max of "1920x1200". If you can use a digital output it should use the full resolution.

thanks, rindi and Seth. The firepro 2270 has a DMS-59 to dual dvi adapter to which the monitor is connected with a DVI dual link cable. Do I miss something here?
I updated now to the latest drivers, but still the highest resolution of the Philips monitor isn't available.
