Omg. 1080Ti and BenqXL2411Z

Just got the 1080Ti and my monitor does not have any Displayport at all. No wonder I kept scratching my head why the refresh rate is stuck at 60fps@1080 resolution. I've browse that many users are also having the issues and some terms are a little chim.

Some said getting certain adapters that cost over 100+ will not get me back that native refresh rate of my monitor.

Some said just get a Asus/Acer 27" model that supports 1440p(The future) but that is kinda what I like at 1440p resolution.

Really need advices if there are ways to save some money before getting a new monitor or any aftermarket 1080Ti card that actually has that port to go with my current monitor? Gum xia!

My assist will be limited since you did not list any specs like most of us in HWZ forum do. It will help a lot for people who wants to help you especially what brand and model your 1080 Ti is.

Basically the easiest way is to just check your manual. It clearly states there that in order to achieve 1080p at 144/120Hz, you are supposed to use the included DVI-D Dual Link cable that came with your monitor and use that instead of HDMI since your HDMI port is limited to 1080p at 60Hz.

My 1080Ti comes with 3 Display Ports, 1 HDMI and 1 DVI-D Dual Link port. So all you have to do is connect the cable to the DVI-D Dual Link port on both your 1080Ti and Monitor. The end.

Anything else, you can consult the monitor manual on page 29 and 30 which states how to set your Windows to refresh at 144Hz with the DVI-D Dual Link cable.

The user manual can be found on your monitor's downloads page. Download it there and check the following page that I've mentioned.

Oops, Mine is the https://www.zotac.com/us/product/gra...x-1080-ti#spec

I didn't know anything bout the Displayport stuff. Sigh. It does come with a in-box adapter, I connect them to it but somehow it doesn't show anything higher still.

That's what I'm confused on the 3 display port you mentioned. Is my card only 2? Seems like yours is the Amp extreme which I actually wanted to get GRRRR. but they said performance just a little bit higher(correct me if I am wrong). I can go back and change I guess since I only got them yesterday.

If I change to your card model, am I still able to achieve my native 144hz?

Actually what so difficult to connect them to your 1080ti?

That monitor has a display port. Why cant you just buy the display port cable to connect to it? You will get 144hz from that.

The BenQ XL2411Z does not come with a DisplayPort. The only connections are D-Sub socket, DVI-D socket and HDMI socket.

The in-box adaptor that comes with your Zotac graphics card that you've mentioned is not a Dual Link DVD-D adaptor. Thus, it is not going to be able to send the full 144Hz at 1080p. It is a Single Link adaptor.

The problem here is that your card only has DP and HDMI ports and you are missing the DVI-D Dual Link port. That is why you have this issue.

You only have a few choices left.

1) You can either buy an expensive DisplayPort to DVI-D Dual Link adapter. And also have a DVI-D Dual Link cable.

2) Sell your monitor to console gamers who can leverage the 1080p 60Hz HDMI port and then buy a new monitor that has DisplayPort.

3) You can also sell your Graphics Card and replace it with a 1080Ti that has the DVI-D Dual Link port but with that kind of monitor, best to just change the monitor instead. So not a recommended option.

Best is to just go with option 2. The cost of the adapter can nab you a new monitor instead anyway since it is extremely rare for people to try to connect high end graphics cards with old outdated display interfaces.

Now you see why I'm confused? I do not have the DP on my monitor. Hence, Lilasn explained while I googled and still can't connect A to B with all the stupid different type of ports lah.

I also said in my post that many people has the same issue with my setup, my friend also said just get a new monitor last night after he checked but I just wanted to check here again since he's still aslp. I intend to get the Acer Predator XB271HU.

Try this first.

"1080Ti DisplayPort" -> "DP to DVI-D Adaptor" (comes with your 1080Ti) -> "DVI-D cable" (comes with your monitor) -> "XL2411Z DVI-D port"



But if you already did this, then ya. Follow my next advice. Upgrade to Acer Predator XB271HU.

If you are talking about option 3, then ya. Don't take that option. Not much benefits at all since all have Nvidia's GPU boost which will give about 1-5 more fps from each other since all belong in the same family. So don't ever waste your money on this option.
