How To Check Monitor Refresh Rate Windows 10
3 months ago
If you play competitive first-person shooting games, then refresh rate is a factor you need to check because if you own a high refresh rate monitor, you can have some slight advantage over the other players.
Before knowing your monitor’s refresh rate, you first need to understand what it means and how to measure it.
I will try to make it as straightforward as possible, and it means how many times your monitor can refresh an image in a second or in a frame. For example, you own a 60 Hz monitor, which most of us have, so it means this monitor can refresh the image 60 times in a second.
It makes sense that the more times your image will refresh, the smooth and better gameplay experience you can enjoy. If you play competitive games, you can have a significant advantage if you own a high refresh rate monitor. But if you have a low refresh rate monitor, you can still overclock the monitor to run it on high.
Their overclocking doesn’t mean giving your monitor extra voltage kidding! But there are settings in Windows which allow you to do so.
Doing that is not much difficult, and there is no rocket science behind that, but still, if you’ve never done that before, you need a little guidance on it to check and change your monitor’s refresh rate correctly.
So we are not going to waste more time on that, and let’s start with checking the monitor refresh rate in Windows 10 or even in the older operating system though the processor might be slightly different.
