Hello y'all. I hope i hear from someone on here with a better answer than "use the search feature" because i have, and have not found other sources that answer what would be an easy question.

Can anyone tell me the max refresh rate for the older 17" LCD studio displays, the clear ones? Mine is connected to a Windows machine with a DVI video card. I am able to set the resolution to maximum, but when I adjust the refresh rate to 85Hz, the panel does not display anything and I have to reboot the system.

I'd just like to know what the max refresh is for the display, no explanation or new-member bashing please.

Thx
G.

I hope this is your display. If so, this should give you the info you are after.

Am pretty sure it's 60HZ at Max Resolution.

As DTravis7 said it is in fact 60HZ. All of Apples LCD screens have that refresh rate, and almost all other ones are the same

You can play games just fine with it, the refresh rate is very different for LCDs than CRTs. The refresh rate doesn't matter on LCDs.
