Summary

Article describing support for 144 Hz refresh rate when using an i5-7400 Processor.

Description

Desktop system using an Intel® Core™ i5-7400 Processor and 144 Hz monitor only get 60Hz refresh rate.

Resolution

144hz refresh rate with 1920x1080p resolution (or higher) can only be achieved with any of the following outputs due to bandwidth requirements:

  1. HDMI 2.0
  2. DisplayPort 1.2
  3. DVI-D (dual-link rate)
NoteIntel drivers only offer support for DVI-D single-link rates.
Additional information

1920x1080p@144Hz@8bpp requires a bandwidth of at least 8.96 Gbps, so the video output and input need to support it.
