Benq xl2420t and GTX 1080

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
The GTX 1080 only has 1 x DVI port and I have 3 of these monitors, so I can't find any way to get more than 60Hz, since I have to use HDMI. Is there any solution to this problem? I was thinking of getting 3 new 24" 4K monitors, but if HDMI isn't capable of giving more than 60Hz, I guess that's not an option? I really prefere 3x24" over 1 giant screen. :'(

Your monitors have displayport and your graphics card has 3x displayport. DP1.2 can run 120hz 1080p easily. Your 1080 can also run three 4k 60hz monitors with those three displayports.

So I have to use the Display Port outputs, wondered a little about them, but I had some HDMI to spare, so I used them.
I'll waith for the 120Hz 4k monitors to get down to a price level I can live with.

Thanks for the answer.
