I have just purchased a S2417DG monitor. When I try to change to 144Hz, the monitor switches to power saving mode and then resets to the frequency it was at previously. The highest I can currently get it is 85Hz. In the monitor menu, it shows that the Maximum settings are 2560x1440, 144Hz. My graphics card is an EVGA GTX 1080 and I am using a DP connection.
For my notes, send me via Private Message the S2417DG service tag number and 20 digit serial number.
