Connecting an Asus laptop 2021 model to an Acer 27" XF270HU monitor with an HDMI cable. The Asus has a 300hz 1080p screen. Acer has a 144hz 1440p screen. Windows 10 only allows 2 choices:
1. Laptop 1080p 60 hz and Acer 1440p 144hz or
2. Laptop 1080p 300 hz and Acer 1080p 24 hz.

Is this a limitation from the 3070 graphics card? Or do I need a different cable like a USB type C to displayport?
