Well, Do you have recently changed your monitor and still want to run above 60hz smoothly?
There is a solution that’s not expensive at all. You can get both the 60hz & 144hz monitors running on this adapter; it’s very easy to set up, you will need a few adapters and cables to get it working.
You will also need the following items: 144hz monitor (dual-link DVI), 60hz monitor (DVI or DisplayPort) adapter cable 1x USB 3.0 extension, 6ft dual-link DVI cable 2x VGA to HDMI adaptors.
Display port To Dual-Link DVI 144Hz
The Quick Process
- You will need to plug in the USB 3.0 extension into your pc / laptop, where you have all your other connections plugged into
- Run a dual-link DVI cable from your 144hz monitor (the one with the DisplayPort)
- Then, plug another DVI or DisplayPort cable into the adaptor with 2 HDMI ports.
- Now take the 60hz monitor (which must use either a VGA or DVI input). After this, you will need to plug 3 things into the 60hz monitor.
Complete Connectivity Of Display Port:
1st it would help if you plugged in a VGA or DVI cable from the screen port on your 144hz monitor (the one with the DisplayPort). Then from that, run an HDMI to DVI adaptor onto it. From there, you will want to run another VGA or DVI cable into your 60hz monitor’s input port, so as of now, you should have 2 cables going out of your 60hz monitor, one going into your 144hz monitor and the other cable into the HDMI to DVI adaptor.
And then you will need to connect a VGA or DVI cable from your pc / laptop where all of your other connections are plugged in. now that everything is set up, it’s time to plug it all in! First, plug in a USB 3.0 extension (6ft) into any free USB port on the back of your PC / laptop and monitor if possible plug it into the front ports as these are usually slower and will cause issues.
Then plug in one end of a dual-link DVI cable from your 144hz monitor (the screen with the DisplayPort) to the adaptor that has 2 HDMI ports on it. Next, plug in a VGA or DVI cable from your pc / laptop where all other connections are plugged into, and make sure it’s connected to your 60hz monitor, not your 144hz monitor. And finally, if you have another USB, you can also connect your USB extension to your pc / laptop and plug in the other end of the dual-link DVI cable into your 144hz monitor.
Now that everything is connected, it should work; even if you have a 144hz monitor with a DVI or DisplayPort input and a 60hz monitor with an HDMI port on it, both monitors are now working! All you have to do is to change the refresh rates in windows 10 for each one individually, so you will have a 60hz monitor with a 120hz refresh rate and a 144hz monitor with a 60hz refresh rate.
Before you start, make sure the two monitors are working independently of one another by plugging in the inputs on each monitor separately to your DisplayPort or VGA port on your computer and making sure they are synced to the correct refresh rates.
