Thank you for joining this Intel Community.
I understand that you would like to set 2560x1440 screen resolution at 144 Hz refresh rate. I would like to assist you.
In order to provide more information about this, we need to take into account other factors such as the processor, graphics controller, or even video output.
Please provide the following information about your setup.
-Brand and Model of the system.
-Monitor(s) model and how it is connected.
Also, please run the Intel® System Support Utility and attach the report to this thread.
1.Download the Intel® System Support Utility and save the application to your system.
2.Open the application and click Scan to see system and device information. The Intel® System Support Utility defaults to the Summary View on the output screen following the scan. Click the menu where it says summary to change to Detailed View.
3.To save your scan, click Next and click Save. You can save the file to any accessible location on your computer.
To attach a file, you must click "Use Advanced Editor" on the upper right hand corner of the response box, then the "attach" option will appear on the bottom right hand corner of the response box.
Hey hey! Thank you for your reply!
I want to purchase a desktop for office kind of tasks and now choosing between system on AMD Ryzen 2200G and Intel i3-8100. So this isn't what I have but something I'm planning to 😃 But in order to embody my plans I have to choose between these two systems. I won't game or do any kind of graphic intensive stuff on that machine but hope to add smoothness to my interface with high refresh rate monitor.
I knew that AMD APU is capable of 2560x1440 at 144Hz but couldn't find any information about iGPU of i3-8100 which is UHD 630.
So to answer your question about hardware I'm using let it be:
1) CPU - i3-8100
2) MB - Asus Prime B360-plus (I hope to output 144Hz from it DVI-D output)
3) Monitor - MSI Optix MAG27CQ
But I can't "run the Intel® System Support Utility" since I don't have that hardware atm.
Thank you for your response.
Based on the hardware you are planning on using, you may not achieve 2560x1440 resolution and 144Hz refresh rate due to a motherboard limitation.
First, I would like to confirm that Intel® UHD Graphics 630 supports the resolution you would like to achieve. For example, it supports 4096x2304@24Hz via HDMI* 1.4. However, according to your motherboard specifications, the maximum resolution you can set via DVI-D is 1920 x 1200 @ 60 Hz and 4096 x 2160 @ 24 Hz / 2560 x 1600 @ 60 Hz via HDMI* 1.4b. Now, based on the following information (attachment) about HDMI*, you also have to take into the account the 4:2:0 subsampling.
Our recommendation is that you can use HDMI* 2.0 video output to achieve the resolution and refresh rate desired without any hardware limitation.
