    There are lots of g-sync certified panels, but you need also a g-sync license on your chip.

    Not related, but do you know if you can run 144hz on a 4k panel when you lower the resolution? I am not sure if anyone has tried that yet, and I would go for a 4k panel that would do that.

    Theres a new review of the Boe-N4B:http://forum.notebookreview.com/thr...inding-the-the-boe-nv156fhm-n4b.827021/page-3

    Hello guys !

    Today i have an old MSI GT72 2QE with this panel : LP173WF4-SPF1 75HZ

    I already upgrade the GTX 980M to the GTX 1070, and now, i want to upgrade the display.

    With this thread, i saw this panel : N173HHE-G32 120hz.

    But i need a 40 pins connector, right ?

    Can you tell me where can i buy this ? I can't find it...

    Thanks !

    Edit : @ sicily428 Hey man, did you use this stuff : https://www.waresphere.com/store/lcd-lvds-cable-4k-msi-1781-k1n-3040052-h39.html

    Yes, provided there's no (Intel) drivers that prevent you from runnning these settings and assuming that those lower resolutions are natively possible with the screen. The limiting factor is the pixel clock (in MHz), so the number of pixels it can draw per second, and with a 4k@60 Hz you have ample room in that regard:
    Code:
    format··x·····y·····hz···clock·
    3k······2560··1440··144··604.25
    4k······3840··2160··.60··533.25
    3k······2560··1440··120··497.75
    fhd·····1920··1080··144··346.50
    3k······2560··1440··.60··241.50
    fhd·····1920··1080··.60··138.50
    Those values assume CVT and reduced blanking for the calculation method, this is the most common type for modern panels.

    Do you by chance have a 4k panel? I am just wanting to see if this works.
