I was wondering if I would be able to use a resolution of 2560x1440 with an intel hd graphics 4000. Also, what monitor produces the best colors for graphic design and photoshop in general?

Well actually according to this webpage here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/2560x1440-or-2560x1600-via-HDMI.92840.0.html It actually states that you can reach that resolution via HDMI cable although you have to manually set the resolution: You need to manually add a new resolution to the Intel driver (Display -> Custom Resolutions) to use a resolution of 2560x1440 via HDMI. The driver complains that the bandwidth via HDMI is too low for a resolution of 2560x1440 at 60 Hz. With the "GTF" timing setting, only a maximum of 30 Hz was possible in our test. However, if you select "CVT-RB" (Reduced Blank) as Timing Standard, 2560x1440 at 55 Hz (55 p) is possible. But, it did not appear in the Windows dialog until we rebooted the computer. If it is still not listed after the first reboot, repeat the procedure.

So as long as I use a display port cable, I can get 2560x1440 with intel HD graphics?

A displayport cable doesn't cost too much, so if you could please confirm that a display port cable would work it would be much easier to just go out and buy one.

I am using a DELL 2713HM with a macbook Pro 13 midd 2012 with intel HD4000 and I it works fine the laptop is warmer than usual but works fine. The maximum resolution for the Intel HD4000 is 2560x 1600. So that means I'm on the edge :)
About your question with the monitor. The one that I use is a very good one IPS display, calibrated with Spider from DATACOLOR. I am a designer and photographer.

So, yes it works with a display port cable. Thunderbolt and mini display port are the same.

I have a UHD TV with HDMI that I use as a monitor driven by my HD 4000 via display port using a passive (cheap) DP => HDMI converter.
HD 4000 outputs 3840x2160 perfectly but it was very difficult and frustrating getting it to work. (Seeing it now brings tears to my eyes!)

How did I do this?
Full disclosure:
Works with Windows 10, Windows 8.1, Windows 7
Intel HD Graphics 4000 w 10.18.10.4226 Win 7 drivers (earlier versions also work)

The difficulty and frustration lies in the intel custom mode app (mostly in Win7 & 8). I first started using the UHD TV with Windows 10 preview release (via early developer program)... I was able to add the custom resolution without much of a problem using the intel custom mode app. The screen looked absolutely amazing.

For totally unrelated reasons, I had to switch back to using Win7 as my primary OS. Same exact hardware, different OS. Adding the custom 3840x2160 resolution can be added with enough persistence.

Find a custom resolution you can add, and keep adding new and different custom resolutions continually working toward the one you know should work. For me, I know 3840x2160 32 Bit, 24p Hz should work, but I couldn't add it directly because the app constantly told me this "exceeded the maximum bandwidth error"! ItIsBullShit!

I was able to the Interlaced versions of that same resolution without seeing the error. Using that as a starting point, I kept switching to the new custom resolution and adding a new resolution (interlaced), switching to the new resolution then adding a new one. I'm not sure if testing the custom resolution was necessary (?). ALWAYS try to add the new custom resolution 2 or 3 times and switch between interlaced and non-interlaced. After about 30-40 tries I successfully added 7 custom resolutions. The last of which is the one I knew should work. I don't believe the Pixel clock on the HD 4000 supports anything higher than 24p Hz. :(

I'm fine with that - this thing looks awesome.

I hope this helps someone!

Have HP 4540S Probook, Intel I5 3 gen, 3210M / 2,5 Ghz with Intel HD Graphics 4000 and HDMI out. Would like to go UHD resolution out to a 24"-28" screen. Have not bought the screens yet.

Think this is possible?

Have Win 7 Ent on them now, but maybe easier install them with Win 10?
