PCBank PB2700 2560×1440 with Ubuntu 12.4
Suh-weet cheap high resolution monitor, but requires a decent video card. The cheap korean version I bought requires the videocard to do the heavy lifting with respect to driving the screen, thus the cheap price. When I bought it, the Korean seller tried to verify the card I was using as I assume they’ve had unhappy customers who didn’t RTFM.
I’m running an XFX Radeon HD6870 on top of a Z77 motherboard (but still running sandybridge for now). My real goal is a hackintosh, but I’m not sure I picked the right mobo. I also bought a DisplayPort-to-Dual-DVI adapter from Monoprice but haven’t actually seen it working yet. Did not work with this monitor with my 11″ i7 HD3000 MacBook Air, haven’t seen the DP-to-Dual-DVI work in barely-viewed Hackintosh-land nor (post this fix) Linux-land.
Basically, manually get the driver, recompile it for the LTS kernel, install and bob’s your uncle. I am running the PB2700 monitor of the isolated DVI port and a 1920×1200 on the DVI port with all the HDMI and DisplayPort noise. Once the PB2700 monitor works at all with Linux it will then start to show boot screens.
It is teh awesome.
