Solved!

How to determine which HDMI spec my laptop supports?

HP Recommended
HP Pavilion Gaming Laptop
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi All,

 

I currently own this laptop - https://support.hp.com/us-en/document/c06401026

 

I have been looking for a new 144hz monitor, but I am understanding that only certain versions of HDMI can successfully run this frame rate. When I look at that spec in the link above, it just says "1 HDMI" but does not provide the spec (1.3, 1.4, 2.0, etc.). Is there a way to figure this out?

 

Thanks in advance!

As you know the rule:  increasing refresh rate will reduce resolution. Most likely you will get 1920 x 1080 @ 120Hz.

From manual of the series, it has

 

               High-definition multimedia interface (HDMI) 2.0 connector

 

Which supports UHD monitors @ 60Hz

Hi,

 

Thanks for the info! One more question - if I purchase a monitor that supports 144hz, am I capable of that using my current laptop over HDMI? I see mixed opinions online.
