The proprietary nvidia driver on linux doesn’t detect my second monitor properly. It puts it to 1600x900@60hz max. The the nouveau and windows drivers detects the monitor properly, can show the model name and can use the 1920x1080@60hz resolution.
I think this is a very similar problem to this thread Can't set resolution higher than 1600x900 but I don’t quite understand what they did to fix it.
The monitor is connected through HDMI. I’m on nvidia driver version 470.74 but I don’t know a driver version where this problem wasn’t a thing. The monitor shows as “DFP-2” in nvidia x server settings
