New monitor can't reach 144hz on Displayport without being choppy

videogamesmakemehappy
 Share

I just bought a new 144hz monitor for black friday and when I got home and plugged everything in the screen was extremely laggy/choppy on DP. I swapped it for the in HDMI 1.4 cable and it wasn't choppy, but only reached 120hz. My gpu only supports 1080p 120hz, but doesn't say anything about DP. Is this a problem that can be solved with a new cable? or (hopefully not) gpu?
System:
R3 1200

PowerColour RX 580 4GB 

*UPDATE* I finally got it! there is a setting in AMD Radeon setting called "HDPC support", in the settings Display-specs-override-HDPC support, disable that on DP and it shoudl work!

Any chance you have a really really old display port cable ? 

I'm using the one that came in the box:/

Then its not the cable because DP 1.2 and higher would support it. I would bet my money on 1. Configuration issue with graphics card/driver or 2.The monitor being defective or last but not least something wrong with ur card. Is there a friends home where you could take the Monitor and try out if the problem is limited to your system ?

A Ryzen 3 and a 580 4GB? It sounds like your system can't handle 144, not your monitor that's at fault.

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus thread, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

Is that potentially the problem for not being able to reach 144hz?

You can prove that theory easy play a game and monitor CPU and GPU usage if your CPU is pinned at 100% or 99/96 whatever and GPU is only working at 60-70 % you found your bottleneck. Also you need to watch for options in game like v sync 60 fpswhich would limit it make sure you enable freesync and that fps is not limited.

But it sounds like he can't load 144 on the desktop. An iPad can do that.

Try capping fps with a custom setting in Nvidia control panel and see if 120 still causes issues

An RX-580 should have support for 144 Hz.

What is the make and model of your monitor?

What game have you tried that would lag?

 

DisplayPort 1.4 has support for up to 4K 120 Hz.

Assuming you are doing 1080p or 1440p 144 Hz (as you didn't tel us what monitor you bought), that should not be a problem.

 

My older R9 Fury even has support for 1080p 144 Hz on DisplayPort 1.2.

I'm running an ASUS MG248QR.

MSI G24Q, I haven't tried to load a game because I can barely move my mouse without a huge lag spike

You didn't connect your monitor cable to the back of the MOTHERBOARD, did you?

Just to make sure none of us are insane, your monitor is plugged into the back of the RX-580?

Also, what version AMD drivers are you using?

haha, when I first built it I had to think twice about it. but yes it is plugged into the right spot

I'm on 18.11.2, just updated to them to see if that was the problem
