Does a motherboard limit the hz of the screen?


Recommended Posts

Do when choosing Can it limit the hz of a screen? For example when purchasing the following board, is there any point in purchasing a screen with more than 60 Hz?


  1. 1 x D-Sub port, supporting a maximum resolution of 1920x1200 @ 60 Hz
  2. 1 x DVI-D port, supporting a maximum resolution of 1920x1200 @ 60 Hz
    * The DVI-D port does not support D-Sub connection by adapter.
  3. 1 x , supporting a maximum resolution of 4096x2304 @ 60 Hz
    * Support for 1.2 version and HDCP 2.3
    * When the D-Sub port and are connected at the same time, images will output from the only.
  4. 1 x port, supporting a maximum resolution of 4096x2160 @ 30 Hz
    * Support for 1.4 version and HDCP 2.3.

Thank you. Very interesting what you wrote down. So apparently there is no point in purchasing a screen with over 60hz.

How are the simple cards (those of the 150-200 NIS) in relation to the built-in card? Are they better or less good?

And it's clear to me that you can not play with them in new games

You do not read correctly what is written there, it only indicates what the refresh rate is at the maximum resolution that the essay supports. At lower resolutions you will be able to achieve higher refresh rates, from my experience Modern built-in supports without problem at high refresh rates.


It's written in the HDMI connection in resolution You are limited to 30 Hz does not mean that it is not possible to reach 100 Hz at FHD resolution for example.

If it is not written in the user manual then it is not certain that it will be possible to find an explicit commitment for any numbers. Basically you can follow what is written in the standards but I would not 100% build on it in all cases. By standard:

hdmi 1.4 Allows 144Hz at 1080p and 75Hz at 1440p

displayport 1.2 Enables 240Hz at 1080p and 165Hz at 1440p

Of course there are now motherboards that support hdmi 2.0 and 1.4, it gets even more complicated if you try to consider additional parameters such as 10 bit color and. Many times it is also limited on the side of the screen and varies according to the type of connection so that this too should be checked.
