    Hello, I would like to connect a monitor to my gaming laptop: https://laptopmedia.com/laptop-specs/dell-g5-15-5587-4/

    I am running windows 10. The laptop has a HDMI 2.0 port and thunderbolt 3. I would like to know to connect the monitor and achieve 120+hz.
    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    HDMI 2.0 supports "4K" up to 60fps. This allows for full-resolution 4K 3D, along with higher-frame-rate 2D content, like (potentially) home videos and computer games. HDMI cables are widely available. HDMI monitors are also readily available.

    Connect an HDMI compatible monitor to the HDMI port with the appropriate cable and use the monitor's settings to adjust the frequency.

    Note: Not all frequencies are supported in all resolutions. - See below.

    * You could well experience difficulty achieving that frequency of 120+ Hz if viewing in 4K resolution.

    I'm waiting for someone else to answer this as I'm not sure and I don't want to give you the wrong answer.
