Either way should work just as well.I spent a lot of time researching and learning, so, should I use laptop's Thunderbolt 3 output with (Plugable USB C to DisplayPort Adapter), which was mentioned in this topic above?
HDMI 1.4 , according to what I read, it can offer 144 ghz at 1920x1080?
Thanks! I just ordered the AOC G2590XAn HDMI to DisplayPort adapter will not work with FreeSync, no.
The G2590X I think is a good option. The 24.5" panel it uses is a newer panel as well, which supposedly has improved image quality compared to the older panels most 24.0" 144 Hz monitors use. Haven't tested any myself though.
It is a limitation of Intel graphics.Hey, im late but i have the XG2402 Viewsonic and it support only 120hz. I have a 2.0 HDMI Cable.
My Notebook has a HDMI 1.4 (im not sure.) the ViewSonic OSD shows 144hz (native) but in the Intel Graphics Setting there is only 120hz.
How can i fix this or is this bcz of my 1.4 port on my Laptop?
(im sorry for my bad english)
If you can get 144 Hz through either option, there is no difference between the two.Hello Glen,
First of all, I want to say your thread is a big help, since it's hard to find clear information about Displayport and HDMI cables.
I would appreciate it if you could answer my question:
Recently, I built a new game pc with a Nvidia RTX 2060 gpu. This GPU supports both HDMI 2.0 and Displayport 1.4.
My monitor, the Samsung LC27JG50QQU, has a maximum refresh rate of 144 Hz and supports HDMI 2.0 (it has 1 portal for 1.4 and 1 portal for 2.0) and Displayport 1.2. This monitor comes with a HDMI 2.0 cable for free.
Some of my friends (and lots of articles on the internet) said that Displayport 1.2 is way better than HDMI 2.0 in my situation. I impulsively bought a Displayport 1.2 cable with HBR2 support, thinking it would improve the gaming experience.
After reading your article, I'm not really sure what to do right now:
I'm looking forward to your reply!
- Should I replace the HDMI 2.0 cable with the Displayport 1.2 cable?
- Should I keep using the HDMI 2.0 cable and send the Displayport 1.2 cable back and get a refund?
You should be able to get 1080p 144 Hz. What graphics card do you have?Hi, I just bought MSI optix MAG 241c and it supports hdmi 1.4 up to 144hz. My gpu only has DVI-D output so I used my old hmdi to dvi cable(I bought it around 2007) and it only runs at 60hz.
Should I buy a new hdmi to dvi cable? Or is hdmi to dvi capped to 60hz?
