Question about 240hz monitors.

Hi, I have a question about 240hz / 144hz monitors. I am in the process of relocating and my gaming computer wouldnt arrive for another 2 months or so. Somehow my monitor along with my clothings managed to get here first and its a XL2546. I have been using 144hz / 240hz monitors for so long that going back 60hz just doesnt feel right. I only have a laptop (no dedicated GPU) is it possible to use a 240hz monitor with a laptop? I don't mean gaming, I am only after the smooth mouse cursor movement on the desktop. The only port on this PC is a thunderbolt type C and a HDMI. Thanks guys!

The monitor will work just fine. The ability of your integrated graphics to drive 144/240 Hz will depend on what hardware you actually have in the laptop. You don't mention what you have so I don't know.

 

Just plug the display in and try it. If you're able to select the higher refresh rates in the display settings then you're good to go. If not then it won't work with your integrated graphics.

Be sure to QUOTE or TAG me in your reply so I see it!

sorry for leaving the details outs, it got an i5 10210u and its a Dell inspirion 7490. I would like to try to plug it in but under the current circumstances I have no access to the monitor.

I found some folks reporting they could only get 120 Hz at 1440 p or 144 Hz at 1080p from the UHD620 graphics, which is what that processor has. I did not spend much time looking, but you will likely be able to get something over 60 Hz, but probably not 240 Hz.

 

But, if you don't have the monitor in front of you then I guess it doesn't really matter :)
