    Why does Windows 10 limit my monitor resolution to 1080

    Bang0

      Hi,

       

      I have the following setup but am unable to set set my display resolution to anything above 1080 when using Windows. I believe the issue is caused by limitations with the CPU as it states that HDMI only supports up to 1080.

       

      Intel® Pentium® Processor G3258 (3M Cache, 3.20 GHz) Product Specifications

       

      My only issue with this is my computer is dual boot, and why I boot into Ubuntu with exactly the same setup, I can select 2560 x 1440 without any issues. So why does Windows not offer this?

       

      Thanks,

       

      Andy
