Graphics for 3rd Generation Intel® Processors, Intel® HD Graphics of Pentium® Processors 2000/G2000/G2100 series, and Intel® HD Graphics of Celeron® Processors 1000/G1000 series

  • In clone mode: 1920x1200 at 60 Hz
  • In extended desktop mode: One display at 2560x1600 at 60 Hz, remaining two displays at 1920x1200 at 60 Hz

If you are using a mobile processor, Embedded DisplayPort (eDP) supports 1920x1200 at 60 Hz and two external displays using 2560x1600 at 60 Hz.

Note

Intel® graphics support a wide range of resolutions. However, your system may support a lower maximum amount depending on many factors. These factors include:

  • The chipset or processor in your system
  • Which DisplayPort you are using
  • How your computer manufacturer has configured your computer
  • Your display or monitor capabilities
  • If your display or monitor is plug and play
  • If your display or monitor is in single mode, clone, or extended desktop mode

Check with your computer and display manufacturers to find out the maximum resolution supported by your computer and display.

If you are using multiple displays in clone or duplicate mode, you can only select a resolution supported by all displays.
