Currently, I have a 1920 x 1080 monitor attached to my Surface Pro 3 via it's mini HDMI output port. I use an adapter cable that converts the mini port to a regular HDMI jack.

Can I drive a higher resolution monitor than the one I'm using now? If so, how high can I go?

Thanks.

You can go up to 4096 x 2160 with a 24 Hz refresh rate.

Higher refresh rates will give you smaller resolutions such as 30 Hz refresh rate for 3840 x 2160

To be clear, you DO NOT have HDMI - it's DisplayPort.

You can drive as high a resolution as your display driver will let you set.  So check the display driver settings, which will give you the limit right there.

Thanks. It looks like the trick is to get the right cable (mini display port)
