I have a high refresh rate monitor but it is showing 60Hz on my display setting. What should I do?

These are some of the important things you need to check:

  1. Connect your device to the DisplayPort instead of the HDMI port as DisplayPort supports higher bandwidth as compared to HDMI 1.4 or HDMI 2.0.
  2. You can refer to the below table for reference on the maximum refresh rate different ports can achieve:

  FHD (1080p) QHD (1440p) 4K (2160p)
HDMI 1.4 144Hz 75Hz 30Hz
HDMI 2.0 240Hz 144Hz 60Hz
HDMI 2.1 480Hz 360Hz 180Hz
DisplayPort 1.2 240Hz 144Hz 75Hz
DisplayPort 1.4 360Hz 240Hz 120Hz
USB-C 3.1 60Hz 60Hz 60Hz
Do note that the maximum refesh rate to both the monitor and device (whichever is lower)
