Hi guys!

I apologise for asking a basic question, but I couldn't find a definitive answer anywhere and hence asking it on this forum.
I have an Asus ROG Strix G531 with a HDMI port version 2.0b. The monitor I'm looking to buy is the MSI optix G271 and this has a HDMI 1.4b. The idea is to hookup my laptop to the monitor and use it for only display purpose.

The question I have is would my laptop be able to project 144hz at 1080p via the HDMI? Some users are facing an issue where the max refresh rate is capped at 120hz.
Additionally, my laptop display refresh rate is 60hz. (I know this is of no significance, but putting this out there anyways)
Any help would be greatly appreciated!!!
