BenQ Monitor 144hz DVI-D dual link to Display port isn't working.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I recently bought a 2070 without doing my research and my BenQ 144z monitor only has dvi-d dual link and hdmi and d-sub(whatever that is) and my 2070 has 3 display ports and 1 HDMI and I've tried the HDMI and it won't support over 60hz, so I read online that I need to buy a DVI-D dual link to display port adapter. I just got it and I plugged it in and it said "Wrong cable, please use the cable that came with the monitor" I tried all the other ports and it still doesn't work. So I had an idea, could I buy a DVI-D Single-Link cable and plug one of the Single-Link cable ends in the back of my monitor, then plug the other Single-Link DVI-D cable end into the dual link DVI-D to DISPLAYPORT adapter and make it support 144hz? cause I think my monitor cable that is DVI-D dual link and the adapter that is dual link DVI-D to display port is making it mess up cause its 2 dual links going into each other. Do you think that idea would work or no?

single link DVI only has half the bandwidth of dual link DVI and is why you need dual link to support 1080p 144Hz. You should buy a proven active adapter instead, for example

no it cannot. By connecting to a single link cable you cut the bandwidth, and then you don't get 144Hz.

 

@Glenwing another monitor exception to add to this adapter?

You need to pair it with a Dual-Link DVI cable. Single-Link DVI cables will be limited to Single-Link DVI speeds. Are you using the Dual-Link DVI cable that came with the monitor?

Perhaps.

is there anything else I can do to make it 1920x1080 at 144hz without buying a whole new monitor?

You can try the more expensive BizLink adapter: https://www.amazon.com/Dell-BIZLINK-DisplayPort-Adapter-Powered/dp/B003XYBA72/

 

But I would recommend getting a different monitor instead...

 

Which DVI cable are you using exactly, where did you get it?

Thank you. Nothing that can be done then unfortunately.

So I just need to get a new 144hz monitor?

Has anyone solved this yet?

I would like to keep my two 2411z 's as second and third screens and somehow use 144hz for racing, it is well known the HDMI port does not support high-resolution refresh rates for this monitor so an adapter is really the only option.

I have a 1080 that only has one DVI-D with two DP and two HDMI, however, I am planning to get a 2080ti that is 3 x DP and 3 x HDMI with no DVI-D's
