After countless hours of scanning many forums I am still unable to get my Dell S3220DGF to display 1440p @144hz.
AsRock Z97 Pro4
XFX R9 280x
What I've done:
Reset the monitor
Updated to latest GPU and monitor drivers
Tried several HDMI and 1.2 DP cables both of which supposed to run 1440p @ 144hz (link)
Disconnected secondary displays
Tried different presets, including turning FreeSync on and off
Unplugging and plugging the cable back in, restarting after making changes
From what I researched, my GPU should be able to output 1440p @ 144hz, correct?
My GPU does not support FreeSync, correct?
What else can I try to make this work?
Can the monitor be defective?
I am inclined to return the monitor despite liking it. My dilemma is whether I should consider keeping it even I can’t get this to work for a prospect of using its features when I upgrade my GPU in the future.
