Radeon 9600 supports 1680x1050 over DVI?

Discussion in 'ATI' started by Peter Bassett, Nov 11, 2007.

  1. Have a new 22" Widescreen LCD with a 1680x1050 native resolution hooked up
    to my PowerSpec 2.53GHz PC with Windows XP.

    Unfortunately, the Radeon 9600 will not play back video over DVI. Windows
    comes up at 1680x1050 but I only get audio with WatchHDTV (TV tuner). Just
    a black screen, unless I try 640x480.

    I am able to get video over VGA.

    Do I need to get a different card for video over DVI at 1680x1050 or are
    there tweaks for this card?

    I previously posted about a Nvidia 5200 and incredible there seems to be a
    workaround for that card

  6. 9800XT does not list 1680x1050 in the specs

    Maybe the X1950 supports the same resolutions.
