GPU, max resolution 2560 x 1600 but no 1080p support

So I have this graphics card and I don't understand why its specs say "no" for 1080p support.

It says max resolution 2560x1600 and 1080p is only 1920x1080. I use a 32" LCD for my monitor and my resolution is set to 1920x1080. When I turn on the display it actually says "HDMI 1 - 1080p." If I had the resolution set low like 1024x768 when i turn on the display it would say "HDMI 1 - 1024x768" instead of 1080p. So how can the specs say no 1080p support when the max resolution is 2560x1080 and my TV is currently recognizing it as 1080p. Is it a type in the specs or am I not understanding something about resolutions.
 
They could mean that the HDMI connector doesn't support 1080p - but my guess is that they have made a mistake.
You coudl check the detailed specs on the card makers site
