144 hz over HDMI monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

From extensive research through multiple resources about monitors that are capable of 144 hz over hdmi (mostly from Glenwing). My GPU only has an hdmi output otherwise I would totally use dp or dvi. I have come to the conclusion that the Viewsonic XG2401 will work however I want to know if their newer version (Viewsonic XG2402 - released last September) is capable of handling 144 hz over hdmi. I haven't been able to find any info supporting this yet, I want to know since it will save me money. TYIA!

i run this monitor at 1440p and 144Hz over a 15m HDMI cable (you need to take into consideration res and refresh and which standrad your devices use when deciding on what cable to use)

 

since i was using a long run DP wouldnt be suitable for my application

 

my old 20m dual link DVI cable didnt cut the mustard (it could do 75 Hz max) and i had to try several HDMI (prefered option as it is easier to get the cable head under the house and through the walls) cables until i found one that could do 144Hz

 

this page has a nice table and lots of info to help you

I bought the monitor but the max refresh rate I could get is 120 hz over hdmi (only output I have). Rip. If anyone knows how to get this to 144 I would appreciate it, otherwise imma just deal with it lol. I think my laptop has something to do with it...

Did you try setting a custom resolution?

When I tried that, I was able to get the refresh rate up to 126, but if I try any higher then it hits me with the same message. Man I really appreciate the help though. :)

No problem :) If you have any other HDMI cables laying around, you may want to try a few different ones to see if it makes any difference.

Just an update, I can get 144 hz as I lowered the resolution (thx to that timing change) so I made the compromise to go to 1792 x 1008 at 142 hz which doesnt bother me since I game at 1600 x 900 anyways. Thanks so much Glenwing you seriously are a true life saver!
