Is it true that the display supports 1080p only at 60Hz??

this quote confuses me:


Below that there are actually limited supporting operating modes. You can run the screen at 1920 x 1080 if you want, but only at 60Hz maximum refresh rate according to this spec. We actually tried the screen at 1920 x 1080 and 144Hz refresh rate and it seemed to work fine, but maybe results will vary.

If you select 1920x1080 it auto-adjusts to full screen at 60Hz due to upscaling.
Then manually select 144Hz from the display options and it will readjust to 1:1 pixel mapping at 144Hz. This basically looks like a smaller display within your display with black bars around. No display can do scaling and ultra-fast pixel response.

Can you verify whether these black bars appear above/below, left/right, or as a box around the image in that scenario? If it's like cinema bars (above/below) that wouldn't be such a bad thing I imagine.

Scenario 1: My Desktop Resolution in Win8 is 2560x1440. Now i want to play a game (for example FPS). I set the ingame resultion on 1920x1080 added to this i want to play with 120Hz and ULMB. How would this Scenario look like?

144Hz FHD scenario - there are black bars around it.
60Hz FHD scenario - it scales to fit the whole screen.

You can select either mode via the windows control panel, as Turbo Button won't work outside of native res.

This is what Full HD at 144Hz looks like:
