Hello everyone,

I just got this monitor recently: AOC G2260VWQ6.


I noticed since I got this monitor that when I'm playing in fullscreen and at max resolution (1920x1080) I just can select or use 60Hz. But When I am in desktop or watching any video, or doing something else I can use 75Hz (I tested at UFO Test)

Is this normal?

I am using hdmi cable and already changed to a custom resolution at NVIDIA Control Panel.

Have you tested using DisplayPort?

Usually, if you can achieve 75Hz... you can run 75Hz, it's pretty cut & dry.
Very strange that you're dropping to 60Hz in fullscreen. HDMI 1.4 can still push 75Hz 1080p, but DP should be used here.

In first of all thanks for answering,

Sadly I cannot use DP. It is really strange. I already checked everywhere and did such a big research and couldn't find the answer anywhere. Might be the hdmi cable?

Another example:

  1. Why can you not use DP?
  2. Can you override the refresh rate in game? It's not greyed out or anything, perhaps you can toggle to 75Hz?
Shouldn't be a problem with an HDMI cable. For the most part, a cable works, or it doesn't.
HDMI 1.4 should still be capable of 75Hz.... is the issue present in windowed mode?

1. I do not have port.


2. I can't. It just shows me 60Hz Available.


In the windowed mode I can run at 75Hz. That's why it looks so strange.
