After update/upgrade within Debian/Jessie (affecting some 50 packages) and a reboot (after an uptime of about a month), the full resolution 2560x1440 of my Dell U2713HM has gone. xrandr is listing at most 1920x1200.
Given the long history of my installation, I tried a radical cure, purging all xorg related packages, and reinstalling them. No effect, still limited to 1920x1200.
Then I tried
~$ cvt 2560 1440
# 2560x1440 59.96 Hz (CVT 3.69M9) hsync: 89.52 kHz; pclk: 312.25 MHz
Modeline "2560x1440_60.00" 312.25 2560 2752 3024 3488 1440 1443 1448 1493 -hsync +vsync
~$ xrandr --newmode "2560x1440" 312.25 2560 2752 3024 3488 1440 1443 1448 1493 -hsync +vsync
~$ xrandr --addmode HDMI1 2560x1440
~$ xrandr --output HDMI1 --mode 2560x1440
xrandr: Configure crtc 0 failed
The only trace of this in Xorg.0.log is the following:
[ 3263.882] (II) intel(0): Allocated new frame buffer 2560x1440 stride 10240, tiled
[ 3264.048] (EE) intel(0): failed to set mode: Invalid argument

According to lspci -v, my video device is the following:

Since I installed the full xorg dependency package, missing drivers is not a likely explanation.
