    Xbox - some gaming monitors will not display 2K 120hz - can MS add 144hz?


    Hi

    I have an AOC 2K 144hz gaming monitor, my monitor will not allow 2K 120hz as it does not support that mode so my xbox can not see it - I am fine with that.

    But as 144hz is not a million miles away from 120hz could MS not simply allow 2K at 144hz on the xbox this would greatly help xbox gamers who bought a 144hz monitor thinking it would also do 120hz?

    My monitor was £450 for me to buy the same spec monitor 2K 120hz it would cost me another £450. This is a heavy cost on gamers who have made the mistake I have who only want to play their xbox games at the best visual and performance possible.

    :)

    Unable to 120Hz at 1440p Even Though Monitor Supports 144Hz at 1440p

    https://www.windowscentral.com/xbox-one-120hz

    This article clearly states Xbox add 120Hz for 2K or 1440p, but why is it that I cannot get it to enable on my AOC AGON HDR 32in monitor?

    Xbox one video/ resolution issue

    So the Xbox will not do 144hz. You can increase your refresh rate to 120Hz for 1080p and 1440p resolutions. Your display must support 120Hz
    over HDMI. Be careful as a lot of monitors only support higher refresh rates on the Display port and not on HDMI.

    My advise would be to set the monitor at 60hz 1080p.

    Unable to 120Hz at 1440p Even Though Monitor Supports 144Hz at 1440p

    I think it's a known Xbox One X issue with 1440p 144Hz monitors. I found an article that said that if your monitor isn't specifically a 120Hz monitor that it won't be recognized by the Xbox. If this is true, it would be fantastic to get a fix at some point
    from Xbox because a lot of people are opting into 2K 144Hz options.

    Xbox Series X and LG Class UltraGear 27GL850-B can't get 1440p with 120Hz - "This refresh rate isn't supported with your current resolution"

    Hi,

    I have the same monitor. The reason why you can't go to 120Hz at 1440P is because the LG 27GL850 tops out at 100Hz over HDMI at 1440P. This is why you can only do 120Hz at 1080P on this display.

    My reasons for owning this monitor a little different to yours, it's main use is for my gaming PC which is connected via Display Port. Only on DP can this monitor reach its full potential.

    Unfortunately, this is common issue amongst most monitors and we are getting quite a few questions on here with the same issue. Most Monitors have most of their full features reserved for Display Port.

    The picture quality at 1080P is still stunning on this display though.
    Thanks for the response!

    That's annoying. I've heard that some people were able to get this monitor to run at 1440p 120Hz by disabling Adaptive Sync in the monitor settings.

    I disabled Freesync premium in the Game Adjust menu and then tried but it still didn't work for me.

    xbox one x wont run at 125hz unless at 1080p

    Hi,

    The max refresh rate on One S and X is 120hz, but to get there you need a monitor or TV that supports it and supports it over HDMI. Some displays only support this over display port.

    The S3220DGF doesn't support 120hz at all, only 60 and 144hz and the 144hz is only over Display port.

    Best suggestions is find a monitor you like the look of and google its online manual PDF. You're looking for 120hz over HDMI. Remember that this is the
    vertical refresh rate.

    Also be sure 1440P is 2560x1440 as this is a 1440P monitor, Xbox does not support ultra wide displays.

    look at online reviews, manuals and YouTube vids of your display. Shouldn't go wrong with that.
