Titan 700 and 16:9 resolutions?
« on: 06-October-08, 11:58:07 »

Does the Titan 700 support any 16:9 resolutions under Windows XP?
I tried to install several S3 Unichrome Pro drivers (MSI, Via, Asus), but all i get is 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x800, 1280x1024 and 1600x1200.
I connected the Titan 700 to my LCD TV (LG 42FT75 , 42" 16:9), but the TV supports 4:3 and 16:9 resoulutions only. If i try to set 1280x800 (which is 16:10), a "No Signal" message appears on the TV.
Is it possible to "hack" the driver to support 16:9 resolutions, for example 1280x768? I tried Powerstrip, but i can't set any custom resolutions with it.
Also i tried Mandriva Linux 2008, which supports all possible resolutions from 640x480 up to 1920x1080. But i don't want to use Linux :undecided:

After i contacted the MSI technical support about this issue, they updated the Titan 700 bios and added widescreen resolutions (hopefully 16:9 resolutions).
Bios: http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=downloaddetail&type=bios&maincat_no=134&prod_no=1452

Gonna check it later today.

Edit: tried the new bios (3.10). It supports a lot more resolutions now: 800x600, 1024x768, 1280x768, 1280x800, 1280x1024, 1400x1050, 1440x900, 1680x1050, 1920x1080.
So my problem is solved with the new bios :biggthumbsup:
