Hi,

So I recently got my first 144hz monitor (ASUS VG248), and when tinkering around in NVIDIA Control Panel, I noticed that I could only select the 144hz refresh rate at the PC 1920x1080 selection as opposed to the Ultra HD, HD & SD selection, which only allowed a refresh rate of 60Hz.

I am using a DisplayPort to connect my 1070ti to my main monitor (ASUS 4G248), and a normal HDMI to connect my secondary monitor which only runs at 60Hz.

I'll attach some images below.

I just wanted to know if there was any real difference between the PC and Ultra HD options?

Thanks.
