y520 144hz on external monitor, possible?

2017-06-05, 13:27 PM

Question is, does somebody tried FHD(1920x1080) 144hz or 120hz on external monitor through an usb type-c - dp 1.2 adapter? As I can see this laptop theoretically supports it (dp 1.2). Can't decide whether to buy higher Hz monitor or not.

Solved! See the solution

I think the best way to do this is to possibly try it out in a store or with your friend.

 

Not sure about your location, but there are sellers who have a no-questions asked return policy, you can try with them. I do not have a higher Hz monitor but you are correct, theoretically this should work.

So, I just received my USB Type-C to HDMI+VGA+DVI+DisplayPort adapter ( http://bit.ly/2uHsbul ) and tried with friend's 144hz full hd monitor. Everything works like a charm. 144hz in cs:go on full hd. It's a nice that this laptop has ability to do 144hz.

Its so strange, im looking for this laptop but i have a 144hz monitor too. And some of the reviews say it has an USB Type C Gen 1 which transfer only 5Gbps. And if you search for it you can clearly see 1080p144 is about 8-9Gbps. So i have no idea how did you do that. Do you have the latest Lenovo Legion Y520?

Yes I have y520 with 1050Ti video card. I had some thoughts about this too... I made a deal with chinese shop that if my adapter doesnt work with my laptop at 144hz I can return back. But it works flawlessly, what can i say, maybe it supports usb only 3.0, but if it comes to alternate mode it supports displayport 1.2 just fine? Here is my laptop, chinese shop wanted to see my laptop spec about supporting displayport through alternate mode....
