I got this monitor, and I connected it to my laptop, but it says it runs at 75 Hz over HDMI assuming that this true, in games it seems like it only runs at 60 fps. My laptop has a 60 Hz screen, but my monitor settings say 75 Hz. I am confused, and I am also a noob at monitor tech.

open dxdiag.exe and check for yourself on the 'dispay' tabs.

It has to say: dxdiag-display.png

There is that area that will tell you the Hz your display or displays are at.

Do not mix laptop and external display if they have different parameters. Use external display only, then install monitor driver, then check how many Hz you can choose for native resolution. Or check if custom resolution (with 75Hz) works.

 

If you have 75Hz then another question is - do you use fullscreen mode in games. If yes - many games has their own refresh settings and even if your desktop uses 75Hz, your game may work in 60Hz fullscreen mode until you change that in game configuration or uses borderless fullscreen window mode.

 

Another thing is misleading informations producers put on their products. I bought 75Hz monitor and it becomes 60Hz. Of course it can get 75Hz but only in lower resolutions than native. Crap. And it's Iiyama. :/

I think the refresh rate depends on the resolution.
