Decided to buy a Samsung c34f791 as the main monitor which supports 3440 x 1440 100hz through the HDMI 2.0 port or DP . (Type c port not available)
Need to buy a laptop to go with the monitor. what is the minimal graphics card to output 100hz?
(not a gamer, just general use, put still appreciate smooth transition animation above 60hz)
is laptop gtx 1050 Ti enough?
Well since you aren't going to be gaming refresh rate doesn't really matter. But yea 1050m can handle that resolution well.
EDIT 1: what is your budget for the laptop and what are you looking for in a laptop?
I used to consider Desktop + ultrabook setup, but I found it difficult to sync two systems.
I think 1200USD is what I can afford.
I have to compile stuff, so quad core CPU is preferred.
So I decided to go with the i7 7700HQ laptop.
High end graphic card is not mandatory since I don't play much game.
But driving a 3440*1440 monitor is required.
The monitor provides 100hz possibility, so it would be better if my laptop can do the same.
Above is the laptop that should meet all your requirements. Also the refresh rate doesnt really factor in until you start gaming and gtx 1060 should very well be able to handle that plus your given resolution.
Thanks for the reply.
I think 1060 should suffice.
But I am just more curious about if 1050 Ti can deliver the 100Hz.
After all 1050 Ti laptops are about 250USD cheaper than 1060 laptops.
