    G751 and Thunderbolt/miniDP output able to support 240Hz monitor?

    Hey!

    I've never used my laptop with external monitor before, looking to buy one now.
    Since HDMI is capped at 60 Hz, my question is - will Thunderbolt 2.0 be capable of carrying 720p at 240Hz over miniDP to DP cable? Or 144 Hz is all that I can use at this point of time?

    Thanks in advance.

    The Intel board can support upto 3 independent displays, with any rate supported as long as the display has supporting drivers for anything non standard going beyond PAL/NTSC 1080P.
    You have to consider the GTXm in it too, because you may be able to set or tweak things on the nvidia control panel.

    I haven't tried to experimented, but the mini dport might have issues running 4K screens for gaming. I dont have a 4k display panel. hdmi out is limited, like you said.
    The worst that happens is you get capped at 144Hz, and keep the monitor for a more powerful notebook for the future.

    I thought the TB controller on the G751 was Gen1? Bonus if it's 2... I just got a reply on the Intel boards when I was asking about cross compatibility and making a USB3.1 driver for TB1 on the G751.
