So i have a 144 hz monitor and want to connect it to my Dell g5, but the monitor hdmi support only 60hz. Do i get 144hz if i connect it via thunderbolt 3 to diplay port on the monitor with TB to DP cable? Is the thunderbolt 3 has connection to the nvdia gpu ot integrated intel gpu ? Is it true Dell g5 hdmi support 144hz ?
Thank you so much in advance.
Thank you for your message. You will not get a 144Hz refresh rate as this will not be supported by the display adapter & HDMI. The graphics switches between the cards based on the application used.
While HDMI 2.0 does support 144 Hz - as does Thunderbolt now -- your GPU simply isn't capable enough to support 144 Hz at anything resembling reasonable performance even at 1080p.
You need a 1070 or 1080 GPU (or newer) to even begin to consider running at 144 Hz.
