Cant get asus 7970 to run 120hz Tags: Radeon Asus Monitors Samsung Graphics Product Last response: May 27, 2012 10:45 AM in Graphics & Displays Share putnam55 May 26, 2012 6:53:36 AM Hi Guys, I just bought a 7970 and a Samsung S27a950d 120hz monitor but cant seem to get more than 60hz on either CCC or windows properties. I used the cable supplied by Samsung which I belive to be the one needed. Any suggestions?

But be aware, that there is no HD3D support with DL-DVI, unless AMD has changed their requirements. Are you "right click desktop", "click advanced", go to Monitor tab, then selecting 120hz? putnam55 May 27, 2012 10:45:14 AM thanks for the help guys, fixed it. There is a micro switch on the side of the gpu to turn on 120hz compatability... now running like a dream!! cheers! Can't find your answer ? Ask !
