Reaching 144hz with the Asus VG248QE, help? - Page 2

post #11 of 18
You might be using DVI-D, but that doesn't mean you are using dual link or that your card can even support that kind of refresh.

If it is defaulting to a low resolution, that is telling you that you don't have the bandwidth for that resolution at that refresh rate.

so I forgot to mention 720p is the highest supported resolution at 120Hz over HDMI (if i am remembering correctly), i was just trying to help fix your HDMI root issue...you need dual-link DVI for 120Hz above 720p

Hmm. The 6950 can't handle it?

Would using a mini Displayport be a better option?
post #15 of 18
yea, Displayport can support 120hz above 720p...give that a whirl if you have the connections/cables available, let us know

I would have to go out and buy one, I'll post back when I have the cables necessary.

The 6950s seem to have one single link and one dual link DVI slot. Although they look the same.
Did you try the other one? It is also possible that there is a switch that enables Dual Link on the card.

No need to buy a new cable, make sure you're plugging the DVI-D cable that came from the Asus VG248QE into the DVI-D Port on your video card.

His cable is fine, that's not the issue here.
