Optiplex 3010/Intel HD 2500 max res question

This question has suggested answer(s)

Hi,

I'm using an Optiplex 3010 with Intel integrated graphics HD 2500 and Win 7.  The processor is an Intel Core i5-3450.  I'm trying to determine if it will support 1920 x 1200 resolution.  On the Intel website, it says to contact the vendor, but I couldn't find any specifics on dell.com either.

Dell current configuration software lists my info as such:

Processor:  Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3450 CPU @ 3.10GHz

Display Adapter:  ST250DM000-1BD141 ATA Device

IDE ATA/ATAPI Controllers:  Intel(R) HD Graphics 1554.4140625MB

I currently have 2 older monitors - one with a HDMI connection (with a HDMI to DVI cable), and another with a VGA connection.

I'd like to replace the HDMI/DVI connection with a 24" monitor at 1920 x 1200, but I can't figure out if this system will support that resolution.  If I go to display properties, it seems to top out at 1440 x 900, but maybe that's the max resolution of the current monitor?

Does anyone know if I can run 1920 x 1200 on the HDMI output and keep the older monitor at 1280 x 1024 on the VGA connection?

Any suggestions appreciated.

  • Thanks, Sandeep.

    All those FAQs are related to 3-display systems, whereas mine will be only 2.  I do note, though, that it says:

     

    • In extended desktop mode: One display at 2560 x 1600 at 60Hz and the
      remaining two displays at 1920 x 1200 at 60 Hz.

     

    So, is it safe to say that if it will support 3 monitors at those resolutions, then it should be able to support one at 1920 x 1200 and another at a lower res?

  • Hi gh1138,

    I can confirm if the monitor can support this resolution at 3 way monitor setup, then it can definitely support it at dual or single monitor setup.
