As am I.I'm actually quite amazed at the lack of reading in this thread!
Or an even better resource would be the thread pinned at the top of this very forum section, in which the first topic covered (labeled in bolded red text) is specifically written for people with this exact model of monitor in this exact situation, and tells you what you need, with links to products, and clearly specifies all the things that won't work: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/how-to-connect-to-a-120-hz-display.3268285/
I'm sure you can buy an "active" adapter, but unless it's DisplayPort to Dual-Link DVI, that's pretty irrelevant.Seriously? 108$ for an active adapter? lol? what scam is that? i can buy an active adapter in my country from the most trusted shop in here for around 43$ or something and have warranty on it. its not worth it.
heckThis model is fairly old(2014) and was released a year before HDMI 2.0(2015). There are more 1080p 144Hz monitors that don't support 144hz via HDMI than ones that do.
If you two bothered looking at the specs for the monitor, you'd know Displayport isn't an option and that monitor predates HDMI 2.0.
Exactly where did the op say this? I can only see where they were using displayport to dvii didnt bother reading the specs because when he said using dual link to hdmi the user was part the issue.
Dual link DVI works just fine for 1080p@144hz used it on my ASUS VG248QE for a couple years till I needed a longer cable so I went displayport.so recommended dp to dp or hdmi to hdmi because they are the only connectors that go over 100hz.
its not my fault he's bought a lemon of a monitor that claimed 144hz even though none of its adapters went over 100hz.
fun fact when 144hz was becoming a thing, i mentioned that none of the connectors supported 144hz and i got laughed at in this very forum.
oh they wouldnt do that.
was the reply.
turns out more than a few manufacturers did. and this is 1 of em.
HDMI 2.0 will do 1080p@240hz. For example the BenQ ZOWIE XL2540 and XL2546 will do 1080p@240hz with HDMI 2.0btw hdmi 2.0 can do 100hz MAX without audio 60hz with audio @1080p. so try disconnecting the hdmi audio lead if you used it you may get the extra bandwidth. if not you may have to disable hdmi audio in your audio options. and it turns out your screen doesnt even support hdmi2.0...
guess your gonna have to get a dual link to hdmi cable and try that...
Actually, no, you just need the DVI Dual Link cable to achive 144hz. I have this exact monitor and just have a DVI plugged into my graphics card and it works just fine. TimmyJoe made a mistake on that video, he thought that the HDMI supported 144hz when it doesn't, and it worked when he plugged in the DVI cable. This is actually a decent budget monitor nowadays if your using older graphics cards such as the GTX 10 series cards like myself.
What is this nonsense? Could you post your 'source' for that? As I'd love to see how they arrived at that conclusion.btw hdmi 2.0 can do 100hz MAX without audio 60hz with audio @1080p.
Why not just return the monitor and get one with a DP connection that will work with your video card? Really the correct thing to have done was to look into the monitor model before getting it, adapters/converters are silly to use since so many 144hz monitors now have a DP port, or newer HDMI ports that can run at past 60hz.Even after all the digging and research i decided that ill just give up and use it as a 60hz monitor ig
random 15 dollar one i got at fry's electronics.
DP and HDMI are not the only connectors that support over 100 Hz. Dual-Link DVI also supports it.so recommended dp to dp or hdmi to hdmi because they are the only connectors that go over 100hz.
One of the connectors on the monitor does go over 100 Hz.its not my fault he's bought a lemon of a monitor that claimed 144hz even though none of its adapters went over 100hz.
Ah, so you are not new to the community after all, and have been well-aware of the connector limitations of these monitors for years. I see. I assume people informed you about the capabilities of DVI at that time, so I'm confused about why you are unaware that it is fully capable of 144 Hz.fun fact when 144hz was becoming a thing, i mentioned that none of the connectors supported 144hz and i got laughed at in this very forum.
The community was correct, no manufacturer has produced a 144 Hz monitor that has no connectors supporting 144 Hz.oh they wouldnt do that.
was the reply.
No, this monitor is not an example of that, since it has one connector that does support 144 Hz (DVI), not none.turns out more than a few manufacturers did. and this is 1 of em.
This is misinformation. If you believe it is correct, please prove it.btw hdmi 2.0 can do 100hz MAX without audio 60hz with audio @1080p.
Which HDMI audio lead are you referring to?so try disconnecting the hdmi audio lead
Standard stereo PCM audio for computer/monitor speakers uses about 1.5 Mbit/s. This is an extra 0.03 Hz at 1080p if it could be used for video bandwidth. Even a full 8 channel lossless DTS-HD stream at maximum bitrate is about 25 Mbit/s, or about 0.5 extra frames per second at 1080p. The bandwidth used by audio is insignificant.if you used it you may get the extra bandwidth. if not you may have to disable hdmi audio in your audio options.
Dual-Link DVI to HDMI cables do not actually exist, as covered in section 4.5.2 here: https://forums.tomshardware.com/threads/how-to-connect-to-a-120-hz-display.3268285/guess your gonna have to get a dual link to hdmi cable and try that...
