AMD's specifications for the 7570 say that it supports
  • DisplayPort - max resolution 3840x2400
  • HDMI - max resolution 1920x1200
  • Dual-link DVI with HDCP - max resolution 2560x1600
  • VGA - max resolution 2048x1536

AMD - RADEON HD 7570 GPU Feature Summary

Recent versions of HDMI theoretically support resolutions higher than 1920x1200, but in practice, many implementations have a 1920x1200 limit.  This is apparently one of them.

So you would be limited to 1200 pixels vertically if you were depending on the HDMI link.  This is why it is preferable to use a DisplayPort connection or dual-link DVI connection.

Excellent info!  Guess I've been out of the game for a while - time to look up what DisplayPort and dual-link DVI are.  Sounds like it's definitely the way to go.
