Lenovo y50-70 UHD problem


I have a problem with my Lenovo Y50-70 with UHD screen. As we all know it has 48Hz framerate lock. I get it and I can live with it.
But has anyone encountered a problem where external screen has 48Hz lock too? It happens only when I am extending the screen. When I set only 2nd screen in Windows, monitor works in standard 60Hz (I'll add that I have set 60Hz in the Screen properties and Intel Graphics HD).
I've talked to Lenovo support and they told me that Intel Graphics driver holds up monitor refresh rate on 48Hz because of UHD screen of Y50-70.
Maybe anyone has tried any workaround? I'll add that it works flawlessly on Linux - Y50-70 screen on 60Hz and external monitor on 48Hz.

Thanks in advance
