Question for anyone using the Studio Display with the base model 14" MBP (8/14 cores, 16GB memory): what is the maximum scaled resolution available in Display Settings?

I was checking out the SD in my local Apple store and noticed that different machines seemed to have different max resolutions - one of them was hooked up to an M1 Mac Mini and I think the maximum available res was 3008x1692, while a 16" MBP could go up to 3360x1890, but weirdly a base model Mac Studio was in between at 3200x1800. So it seems like it varies quite a bit.

If someone has this exact combo and can check for me it would be much appreciated!

The max for me is “looks like 3200 X 1800”.
MacBook Pro 14 inch M1 Pro 10/16 cores, 16GB unified RAM.

Can you get higher scaled resolutions by holding the [Alt] key while clicking "Scaled"?

[...] one of them was hooked up to an M1 Mac Mini and I think the maximum available res was 3008x1692, [...]
Original M1 Macs cannot "run" scaled resolutions wider than 3008 pixels.

FYI: “Low resolution” means non-HiDPI and will be blurry, since the lower resolution will be upscaled to 5120×2880.
