Getting 144hz on HDMI, possible?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey everyone, just got my asus VG248QE, but I'm away from home and the only thing I have is my laptop, asus G73sw.

It doesn't have a DVI slot, and I'd really like to try the monitor out a little. If I bought a HDMI to DVI thingy, would I be able to make it work on 144hz?

Nope.

From ASUS
Quote:
*To activate 144Hz function (in 2D mode), both DisplayPort (or Dual-link DVI) and a selected graphics card with the latest driver are required. Please kindly contact the service center of your graphics cards companies for further technical supports.

You might have a chance if it was from a desktop graphics card, but not from a laptop.

Do you mean like, technical problems, or just the fact that a laptop probably cannot play anything at such high FPS? I just want to see how 144hz is biggrin.gif

You can't. Sorry. I used to use an Hdmi to DVI cable for my g53 laptop to my 120hz samsung monitor. The HDMI end caps the bandwidth.

As of right now, you need dual link dvi AND a video card that has dual link DVI to do it. Your laptop will never output it.

Laptops typically just support 1920x1200 at 60hz. Desktops cards on the other hand usually fully support HDMI 1.4 or better and can pump out the bandwidth for 120hz or more... most monitors have problems taking more then 60hz over HDMI anyways though. They seem to expect HDMI to just be running a game console or something, and the DVI is where the PC plugs into.
