is there way to have 144hz output with external monitor?


So I bought legion y540 few months ago and I want to buy new monitor that I can use as a external monitor. I would like a 144hz output but don't really know if HDMI will be able to do that. 

Is there way I can achieve this? Do I need to buy a specific monitor to get it working?


Thanks for helping!

If you have an HDMI cable and a 144 Hz monitor, it should work fine. You may need to go to Display Settings, Advanced Display Settings, Display adapter properties for Display [n], Monitor, and set the refresh rate to 144 Hz.

You should be able to with mini displayport and an adapter to displayport. I got one that did 144hz through displayport and DVI-D, both worked fine.
