I’m looking to buy a new desktop PC and I’m confused by the MHz rates listed on the graphics card vs the monitors. The GeForce GTX 960 base clock is listed at 1127 MHz, but ASUS’s ROG SWIFT PG278Q Digital Signal Frequency: 89~222KHz(H)/50~144Hz(V). If I’m doing the math right, the graphics card is 10,000,000 times “faster” than the monitor. Obviously, there something is wrong with my thinking, but what is it?
Here are the links to the specs and a recap of the computer I’m looking to buy.
