    After upgrading to Windows 10 I can no longer select 144Hz refresh rate. I had no issues in Win 8. My max refresh rate now is 120. Anyone else having this issue?

    Again, this is for PG278Q, R9 290X, and Win 10. (and yes I know how to set refresh rates).

    Can you get to 144hz by pushing the turbo button on the side of the monitor?

    Nope. This only works when 144Hz is selected in OS. At least this was how it worked in Windows 8.1.

    Then something must be wrong with your monitor because that is not how mine works. I can cycle through 60, 120, 144 by pushing the button regardless of what the desktop/game is set at.

    Either that or maybe it doesn't play nice with AMD cards.

    Thanks, but not true. It works on your monitor because 144Hz is selectable in OS.

    yes, I agree this is somehow related to AMD...

    Again, this is started immediately after Win 10 upgrade.

    If you're using Crimson drivers try adding a custom resolution with 144hz.

    I had this problem with an r9 390 and a 6970 (iirc), the issue was I needed to connect via Display Port. The 1080p 144hz DVI-Dual connection stopped working with a driver update.

    Are you using Display Port?

    Yes, using DP. PG278Q is a DP only monitor....

    Do you have any other video cards to try?

    Had the same behavior with my Fury-X, not the same card ... but hey -- at least the same screen. Similarly tried CRU, including identical settings that I was able to get the PG278Q working under on 8.1, no such success on 10. (out of range)


    Ultimately never tried beyond that, as I moved upto a BenQ XL2730Z (Nvidia transitioner). Don't even have 10 installed at the moment, yet this was also under build 10240. No experience with TH2.


    May be universal with AMD cards on the PG278Q. Unsure. XL2730Z had no problems running at 144hz on TH1. PG278Q is still functional as it works just fine on my 980.
