Legion y540 (2019) with 2k/4k 144hz external monitor

2020-06-29, 17:13 PM
Hello, I have the 144hz y540 model. Is it possible to output 144hz on an external 2k/4k monitor? Which cable do I need to use exactly? HDMI, mini display port, or maybe an adapter? Is there an official one that is recommended by Lenovo? Thank you! D

144hz will not work on anything higher than 2k, so you should use the Mini DisplayPort® connector with a high quality cable, and you should be good to go.

Thanks for your quick reply! So if I have a 2k 144hz monitor and use a high-quality mini-displayport cable then I'm good to go with 144hz right? Also, with a HDMI cable I can't get 144hz on a 2k or 4k monitor? Sorry for many questions, I just want to make sure that I can get 144hz on a 2k or 4k monitor because FullHD + 60hz is unbearable for me, and I'm planning to get a good monitor. :)
