How to achieve a higher refresh rate

You can adjust your computer’s refresh rate in the Windows settings interface. However, the maximum refresh rate supported varies with different display interfaces. This usually depends on the computer’s CPU and BIOS.

You can check the highest refresh rate supported by CPUs on the official Intel or AMD website.

Generally speaking, DP supports higher resolutions and refresh rates.

If my Mini PC has a dedicated graphics card, can I get the refresh rate of the dedicated graphics card?

It depends on whether your computer supports a direct connection to a discrete graphics card. Some mini PCs only support graphics processing with their discrete graphics and do not support display output. Therefore, you can’t configure it in Windows or BIOS. This is determined by the motherboard design. So, you might not be able to switch it to discrete graphics output mode. Forcibly uninstalling the integrated graphics card or disabling it in BIOS will result in your computer being unable to display anything.

Some mini PCs support direct connection to discrete graphics cards, but the display interfaces that support this direct connection might differ from those used by integrated graphics. We need to connect to the correct display interface to enable the discrete graphics card for display output.

Despite this, most integrated graphics cards now also support high resolution and high refresh rates. We just need to connect them to a DP or another interface that supports high resolution to get better display effects. If your monitor only has an HDMI port, you can also use a DP to HDMI adapter for conversion. However, when buying an adapter, pay attention to whether it supports the resolution and refresh rate.
