Question X1 Carbon Dual Monitors - max resolution not detected

Setup:
Belkin Dual Display USB 3.0 Dock
X1 Carbon
Windows 8.1
Displaylink Mgr - 7.5.52874.0

Question:
Is there a limitation on screen resolution when using 2 monitors?

When my ASUS PB278 27" IPS monitor is the only display connected through the Display port I can drive it at the max 2560x1440 resolution of the display. However, as soon as I connect my Acer X223W to the DVI port the Displaylink drivers reset the ASUS to 1920x1080. Kind of a bummer, I'd really like to use both of these monitors if I can and I'm hoping this is a configuration issue, or maybe there is another dock out there that supports this.

Hi,

This behaviour is as designed in the current range of docks.

Products based on the forthcoming DL-3950 allow what you're after.

Thanks,
James

Hi,

That's down to the OEMs to decide but I expect you'll see them appearing during Q2 2014.

I'd recommend contacting Targus about their forthcoming dock:
