It looks like both the discrete and integrated GPUs support some version of HDMI 1.4, however, I don't have any monitors that go above 60Hz to see if it supports higher.
Unfortunately, I can't find any tests of running 120Hz off a 960m, so you might have to be the guinea pig to give it a try! Let us know how it works out!

HDMI 1.4 does not support 120hz. It supports 1080p@60hz in 3D, which is sometimes referred to as 120hz in 3D. But in 2D, it cannot. They do this by sending two 1080p images in a single packet, at a rate of 60hz, and splits those two images into two frames on the monitor side. This doesn't work for 2D.
this is the end of buying 144hz monitor
