Hello Everyone I hope you are in the best of your health in this pandemic. I recently bought a gaming monitor for my work as well as for the little gaming that I do. I have connected my laptop to my monitor using an HDMI cable. Now the problem that I am facing is in most of the games I am just getting 30 FPS. I have a 1050 TI 4GB graphic memory so I doubt that it produces only 30 FPS because clearly when I play on my laptop I get over 90 FPS in Valorant. So my question here is what could be the possible reasons for this ? I did some research and found out the following reasons :
- I am using an old HDMI cable that is not able to transmit more than 30 Hz and indeed I am using an old HDMI cable because the monitor came with a display port and my laptop only has a mini display port.
- My laptop is not able to produce more than 30 FPS on the external monitor.(I highly doubt this could be the reason)
Can someone tell me that If I purchase a mini-display port to display port will that fix the issue or do I have to do some more analysis of the situation here ?
Your responses would are appreciated please can someone help me on this ? I am giving the links of both the monitor and laptop below if anyone wants extra information.
