I have the same problem in windows 8.1. My 1920x1080 on my 60 inch plasma gets cut off at the edges. The quality of my picture is fine but the edges are cut off. Any way to fix this?
I have this same NUC next to me but it is running Windows 8.1 and using this resolution is working just fine so this definitely is something with the linux driver you are using.
I have a similar problem with Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 0b) using linux mint 17.1. It displays the middle part of the screen and not the edges.
Apparently the driver does not properly recognize the screen size. So is Intel just going to tell us it's a linux driver problem, or will they point us in the right direction ?
