Info: 2560 x 1600 Displays

Graphics Agents running on Microsoft Azure may be limited to a single 2560x1600 display, depending on the state of NVIDIA GRID licensing.

Note: NVIDIA Tesla cards have license limitations

Systems using NVIDIA Tesla-based GPUs, including M60, M10, and M6, are subject to licensing restrictions which may further reduce the available number of monitors or their available resolutions. For systems using Tesla-based GPUs, only licensed displays and resolutions will use GRID functionality. For more information, see NVIDIA’s Grid Licensing User Guide
