Refresh Rate Comparison

This image is enough to know what the refresh rate is; as you can see at 60 Hz, the car is slightly blurry because the image is not updating much.

While at the same time, a 240Hz display makes it more clear makes it more smooth, and you can see the difference. Most of the time, maybe you will not focus on that, but when playing competitive games, you will feel that difference much.

  4. A new window will open, and you will see the Monitor tab on the top tabs.
  5. Now there, you will see the refresh rate currently your monitor is running on. Now, if you are not sure what settings you monitor supports, you can simply click on “hide options that are not available,” and this will only give you those refresh rates that you monitor supports.
