Can a DVI-D to HDMI cable support 75hz?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hi guys, so I have an RX 470 Mining Edition, meaning it only has one DVI port. I use a DVI-D to HDMI cable to connect it to my monitor. I got a new LG monitor that is capable of 1080p75hz but when I go on the display settings windows just shows me the option to get to 60hz. I was wondering if this was a DVI-D to HDMI cable problem, since if I lower the resolution to 800x600 it actually gets me to 75hz.

Thanks!

How high quality is the adapter?

You may need to get one that supports 75Hz

I would say it is pretty high quality. The HDMI adapter is an HDMI 1.4, both of the connectors are gold platted and have copper conductors. (This is what is says on the box).

Oh, what do you mean? The graphics card may be broken?

Yes, or it is because it is a mining card.

It is possible that it was set in the factory to not go above 60hz, because they assumed it would be used only for mining.

But when I get the resolution down to 800x600 it can actually get the 75hz

Hmm. The GPU may just not be powerful enough to do 1080p 75hz

I don't know about that... I ran some 3dmark tests when I got the GPU and the results were the same as a normal RX470 card
