So what's the other magic part of the equation?The Intel drivers and the LCD panel are capable of syncing to a ton of custom resolutions that can be any aspect ratio you wish. The problem is that you have to mess with installing the intel.com driver which potentially conflicts with the NVIDIA driver. Also I find the Intel control panel UI a little tedious to add and test each resolution. I'm hoping my regkey adds value to the community by saving folks a few minutes. Below are some of the resolutions I added for SP3/SP4/S3. I have not tested on the SB yet so eager to hear how it works for others.
Custom 3:2 resolutions added so far:
- 1530x1020 (Intel driver may round to 1528x1020 which isn't exactly 3:2 ratio)
- 1350x900 (Intel driver may round to 1352x900 which isn't exactly 3:2 ratio)
- 1278x852 (Intel driver may round to 1280x852 which isn't exactly 3:2 ratio)
- 1080x720 (can't run some modern apps on Surface screen)
- 1020x680 (can't run modern apps on Surface screen, Intel driver may round to 1024x680 which isn't exactly 3:2 ratio)
- 960x640 (can't run modern apps on Surface screen)
I'll see about borrowing a device and trying some other resolutions like 2560x1706 etc.
