U3011, XPS 8920, AMD Radeon RX 480, cannot get 2560x1600 resolution

I recently bought a new Dell computer.  Dell XPS 8920 XPS8920-7922BLK-PUS that has  8GB AMD Radeon RX 480 Graphics.

My monitor is a 30 inch Dell U3011.  I've used it on two prior computers and have never had a problem with it.  The maximum resolution is 2560x1600.

Unfortunately on my new Dell computer the highest resolution I can achieve is 1920x1200.

I think the problem is that the Dell XPS does not have a Displayport plug in and the Dell U3011 does not have a DVI plug in.

I tried HDMI to HDMI and was unable to get the proper resolution.

I bought a DisplayPort to DVI Converter and still cannot get above 1920x1200.

Drivers are updated.

Any help would be appreciated.

RE: Cannot get 2560x1600 resolution with dell U3011 on new Dell computer

AMD Radeon RX 480 video out ports = DP/DP/DP/HDMI


U3011 video in ports = DP/DVI-D/DVI-D/VGA/HDMI/HDMI

Connect in this way =
AMD Radeon RX 480 DP out port --> DP to DP cable --> U3011 DP in port

Somehow after all these years I finally found the Display Port on the monitor. For some reason the other ways still won't give me max resolution but this will.

Thank u
