I do not know about your setup. I have a Thinkpad T440p with HD4600
internal GPU and Nvidia GeForce 730M dedicated. Currently, I can only
run VESA and can _only_ use 1920x1080.

Ports are compiled from revision=341507.

Hope that helps, cheers,

Punctuation matters:
"Lets eat Grandma." or "Lets eat, Grandma." - Punctuation saves lives.
"A panda eats shoots and leaves." or "A panda eats, shoots, and
leaves." - Punctuation teaches proper biology.

"With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine. However, this is not
necessarily a good idea. It is hard to be sure where they are going to
land, and it could be dangerous sitting under them as they fly
overhead." (RFC 1925)
