Reaching 144hz with the Asus VG248QE, help?

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello,

If you check my account, I'm not a very active member - I'm more of a lurker. It being one of my few posts, I'm not exactly sure where to post this question. I've been having trouble trying to force my monitor to reach 144hz or even anything above 60. I have the HD 6950, which I would imagine could go higher than 60. I've tried things such as creating a custom INF to change the settings of my monitors drivers through multiple programs, however, no luck. Would you guys be able to help me figure out why this is so?

Thank you so much!

if im not mistaken the 6000series dont support 1.4hdmi, HDmi 1.3 doesnt support anything higher than 60hz if im not mistaken. you either have to use DVI-D or Display port to get anything above 120+

Make sure that you are using the dual link dvi cable that came with the monitor or any other dvi cable that is dual link.

I am using the dvi-d, and i've tried the hdmi. Dvi-d runs perfectly at 60 hz, the hdmi has a distorted resolution. I range from newer games such as dota, league, crysis, counter strike, and a few others just from the top of my head. I'm using a phone sorry. So the 6xxx series is capped at 60?

Make sure on games like Counter Strike, you put in the launch options "-freq 144", same for DOTA2. No idea about the other games.

you need to enable overscan in Catalyst control panel. drag the slider to max and it should fill up the screen and everything will look all purdy

I was able to boost my refresh rate to 120, now I'm having the issue of screen resolution. Every time I set it to 120, the resolution reverts to 1024x768
