Hello!
I have Dell S2716DG 144hz monitor that supports G-Sync. I have also have a msi gaming laptop 1070 gtx that supports g-sync. However, I dont have a displayport cable socket on my laptop so i have to connect with hdmi instead. But then I cant use 144hz option and g-sync option.

If i buy a DP to HDMI converter, am i gonna be able to use all of the options?

If not, I am happy to listen your solution suggests.

Thank you very much!!!

No, you will be limited to 60 Hz at 1440p and G-Sync will not function through an adapter.

If your laptop has a USB-C port with video capability, you can use a USB-C to DisplayPort adapter instead, that should give you 1440p 144 Hz with G-Sync.
