Helios Confirmed 240hz HDMI PH317-51

edited November 11 in Predator Laptops
I see alot of speculation that the Helios is locked via BIOs but that' not the case.. the hardware for the monitor itself must support HDMI 2.0.

On my Facebook group (Helios 300) we've compiled a list and will update this one as new monitors emerge confirmed working.

Here is a list of external monitors that can reach above 60hz via HDMI (up to 240hz) which can be used by the Helios. Some of the monitors on this post are currently being used by owners of the Helios and confirmed working at their respective resolution.

If you find another monitor comment below and I'll add to the list.

    Also, regarding the BenQ XL2540: Do you have to do anything specific to get the monitor to work at 240 hz with the helios? Or do you just simply connect the monitor to the laptop's hdmi port and select 240 hz setting in nvidia control panel? 
    Thanks!

    Unfortunately with BENQ Monitors they don't seem to play well with the Helios. 

    There was some who tried the Benq Xl2411and it did not work. 

    I haven't tried your requested monitor but I imagine it might have the same issues.

    Oh, that's sad to hear. I was hoping that the XL2540 would work cause it is in the list of working monitors. But thanks for the reply, really appreciate it!
    Also: Does the Samsung C24FG70 support helios natively  (through hdmi) at 120hz? It's also in the list but just want to make sure if it will work out of the box at 120hz. 
    Thanks again!
  • Red-SandRed-Sand Posts: 1,797ACE Pathfinder
    Oh well if it's on the list then it does work! Lol sorry I didn't check.. All the monitors on the list have been confirmed to work with the Helios

    Hello man! Thanks for these informations.

    Don't you know any 240hz monitor with G-Sync Technology to use with Acer Predator Helios 300 ?

    Or do you know if these related FreeSync monitors works perfectly (with this technology) connected in Predator 300 ?
  • Red-SandRed-Sand Posts: 1,797ACE Pathfinder
    I've *heard* that G Sync worked but I cannot confirm it myself.
