NUC10i3FNKN1; Does it support 144Hz/1080p?


Hi, I'm wondering if the NUC10i3FNKN1 supports 144Hz refresh rate at 1080p


I know it has HDMI 2.0b which should support up to 240Hz at 1080p, but I'm unsure if the i3-10110U's integrated graphics can push that refresh rate out.

The simplest answer I would give to you is "Yes, it should support 144Hz refresh rate at 1080p"...


Now, let me share some info from Intel so you can have more faith in what I said...


The NUC has HDMI 2.0b and DisplayPort 1.2 via USB Type-C based on technical info, the first one supports 4096 x 2160 @ 60 Hz, and the latter 4096 x 2304 @ 60 Hz... this is just "a standard of what is supported" since it is well known that you can achieve higher refresh rates if you lower the resolution (I mean, you can play with the settings since these things rely on different factors like bandwidth)...

Now, let's focus on the outputs on the NUC (HDMI and USB-C), from Intel directly (using this link), they say that:

-> HDMI 2.0b  - has Max. Effective Bandwidth of 14.4 Gbps

-> DP 1.2 -  Max. Effective Bandwidth of 17.28 Gbps


and the table below shows:

1080p - 144 Hz >> needs bandwidth of 8.96 Gbps


So... I would say, it should have no problems handling 1080p at 144hz... of course, your monitor must support that as well...
