How much Hz does my monitor have? Where to check it?

One of the most important aspects to know about a computer is how its graphics performance will be or the visual quality the screen displays. So, if you are a video editor, a professional gamer, or just need a good monitor to work for long hours, you need to pay attention to the refresh rate.

What does Hz do on the monitor?

Hz (Hertz) is nothing but the unit of measurement of refresh rate, also known as frequency or refresh rate. This metric represents the number of frames per second (FPS) it displays, which is how many times a monitor refreshes the image per second.

So, what is Hz used for in a monitor? Simply put, they tell you how fast the image refreshes on that screen, so for example a 60 Hz monitor might display 60 FPS, while a 144 Hz monitor refreshes 144 times per second.

How can I know the frequency of my screen?

There are several ways to find out how many Hz my monitor has.

If you have a Windows computer, a lightning-fast way to find my display’s Hz information is to right-click on the desktop and go to Display Settings. Once in this window, enter the Advanced Display Settings option, where you can find a few relevant data, including the refresh rate, which you will see is measured in Hz.

There are some apps that let you check your monitor’s refresh rate quickly and for free. Vsync Tester and UFO Test are two simple online tools that you can use to very easily check the frequency of the screen as soon as you enter the site.

A third way, if you haven’t yet decided which monitor suits you best, is to read the specifications published by the manufacturer.
