2560*1600 on Geforce 8600M GS possible?

I just bought a Samsung X-65 which has a Geforce 8600M GS GPU. The notebook itself has no DVI connector, but the docking station has one and it looks like a dual link connector. I want to buy a large 30" display, but according to Samsung the resolution 2560*1600 is not supported - they cannot say why, but only reference the technical specification...

I thought it might be a driver issue, so I installed the new NVidia driver from this site. However, if I take a look into the list showing the available display modes, the maximum resolution is 2048*1536. Note that I don't have the 30" display yet (I wanna ensure that I can use it before I order it...), so maybe this is an issue because only a default monitor is available?

Has anyone experience with the GPU and a 30" display or knows if it works or not? Thanks in advance!

The GPU itsef support it. however DUALLink DVI is required to make 2560 * 1600 work. It's not a mandatory spec for the OEM to implement this.

I would suggest to look at Personalize > Display Settngs > Advanced Settings > List all modes to see what resolutions the driver supports, regardles of the panel connected, if not shown there it will not work

I tried this before and received 1920*1080. After installing the new driver, it showed 2048*1536. Today I used a video projector and now it shows a max. resolution of 1680*1050. Hence, I think the windows does not list all possible options?!?
