2560x1600 is not listed as an accepted resolution in the M8  manual.

Thank you for the response,  I don't  get how monitors and computer negotiate what resolution to use,  the apple web site also says " Dual display and video mirroring:
Simultaneously supports full native resolution on the built-in display and up to 2560 by 1600 pixels on up to two external displays, at millions of colors"  so there should be a way to adjust resolution so it would work?

 

Thanks again

The Intel HD  4000 is listed as 2560x1600 on the DisplayPort and 1920x1080 on HDMI.

No 4K in this GPU.

The M5 does 1920x1080 native.
