  1. Change monitor aspect ratio.

    Go to NVIDIA control panel, adjust desktop size and position, and set it up like this:
  2. The video is about the fastest possible rate of data transfer, not the speed at which a particular piece of data travels. For reference, the speed of light in fiber is about 2/3 c.
  3. My local hardware store has a section for HDMI cables and speaker wire. People run this stuff through walls, so it crosses into the hw store domain.
  4. The HDMI ports themselves will be limited to 18 Gbit/s. Getting a cable rated for higher won't do anything.
  5. Overclocking to 100hz with VGA input

  6. I got the X27 4k 144hz - some thoughts and questions

    It is because the monitor implements 4:2:2 chroma subsamping (which removes half the color information from the image) to lower the bandwidth, because DisplayPort 1.4 doesn't have enough bandwidth for 4K 144 Hz unless you use DSC compression or subsampling. DSC would have been a much better choice with no visible difference, but it is newer and they opted not to implement it, likely due to hardware availability or cost, and they wanted to rush the product out. So chroma subsampling is required for 144 Hz at full resolution. This will only occur with that monitor and the similar ASUS model. Subsampling is typically only used on TVs, it's generally considered unacceptable for computer monitors.
  7. What HDMI cable to use for 4K HDR?

  8. MSI Optix G24C - How is it?

    You can use DVI or DisplayPort for 1080p 144 Hz. The HDMI port on that monitor supports up to 120 Hz at 1080p.
  9. Thunderbolt 2 display -> USB-C, no output?

    Not all USB-C ports have video output capability. It is an optional feature.
  10. Need a new DisplayPort

    Use one of the ones listed here: https://linustechtips.com/main/topic/729232-guide-to-display-cables-adapters-v2/?output=DP
  11. What happends when you don’t hit 144fps

    Well, it repeats the previous frame until the frame buffer switches, so it really just depends on when a new frame is ready. If the framerate is really low then it may repeat multiple times before a new frame is ready and a tear occurs. Or V-Sync forces the frame buffer swap to be delayed until the refresh in progress is complete.
  12. ATX or atx12v

    They're the same thing, people just notate it differently.
  13. What happends when you don’t hit 144fps

    A normal display will continue refreshing at 144 Hz. If the computer is producing frames at a lower rate, like 130 fps, then there will be some cases when the display will refresh and no new frames will be available. In that case it will repeat the previous frame. You may also get some tearing.
  14. IPS vs TN [Solved]

    Response time affects motion blur. It has nothing to do with delay/lag.
  15. Display Port to HDMI

    Active adapters tend to be less reliable, they're only needed for situations where passive adapters aren't supported. In the case of a DP to HDMI connection, you only need an active adapter if you need more than 4K 30 Hz / 1440p 75 Hz. Otherwise a type 2 passive adapter will do the job.
