Can my Laptop (Lenovo IdeaPad 3 14ALC6) support a 1440p Monitor as an external monitor?

Go to solution Solved by BondiBlue,

Yes, it absolutely should be able to run a 1440p monitor. I use a 1440p monitor on a computer from 2006 without issue. 

Can my Laptop (Lenovo  IdeaPad 3 14ALC6) support a 1440p Monitor as an external monitor?

I was hoping to get either a 24' - 27' monitor,  but I'm not not sure if my laptop can support it. is it safer to stick with 1080p instead?
here's my laptops specs AMD Ryzen 5 5500U with Radeon Graphics  2.10 GHz

 

 

Thanks!!!

wow! thanks for sharing. I was really hesitant coz it might have a hard to time support the 1440p reso. I also do casual gaming thru my laptop and hoping to experience it on a 24' 1440p monitor.... my laptops native resolution is only 14' 1080p

Casual gaming should be alright, though you might need to lower some of the details to compensate for the higher resolution. For everything else it'll be just fine.
