Hello fellow geeks:
I share a standard 16:9 HD monitor between two PC workstations. PC 1 is my administrative computer for basic business productivity. PC 2 is my 3D animation/rendering computer. Quite often throughout the workday, I switch back and forth between both using a StarTech KVM switch.
I’d like to replace my 16:9 monitor with a new 21:9 ultra-wide curved monitor. Since I don’t see any KVM switches for 21:9 ratios, is it possible to share one 21:9 ultra-wide curved monitor between two PCs via their input connections in the back? If so, which one(s)?
Every monitor that I’ve seen has 1 DisplayPort and 1 or 2 HDMI port(s), but unless it’s HDMI 2.0 then I won’t get the full benefit of ultra-wide format, correct?
I’ve been looking for days and I’m weary of searching. Some help would be appreciated. Is it possible to share one 21:9 curved monitor between two PCs at maximum native resolution?
