As soon as you connect a capture card to the device through either of the type c port, the refresh rate of the device is capped to 60hz. Which is ridiculous if you want to play and capture your gameplay at the same time.
I want to play the game at 90hz, but capture it as 60fps as my capture card can record upto 1080p60. I have set the screen refresh rate to 90hz on game Armory. And 90fps is selected in game as well.
But when I connect the hdmi cable, the phone refresh rate is automatically locked at 60hz. No other device does that. The external output should not affect the phone's capability to refresh it's own display. Why is it happening?
I have iPad Pro and oneplus 7 pro. None of these devices cap the refresh rate of phone's display when external output is connected.
I bought this phone to capture my games while enjoying them at high refresh rate display. I didn't expect a mediocre limited hardware on this device.
