CS:GO Tips: Simple Command to Find Out What Monitor Hertz You Are Playing At


Find out what monitor hertz you are playing at

Counter Strike:Global Offensive players playing with high refresh rate monitors (e.g. 100hz, 120hz, 144hz), will often find themselves want to know which monitor hertz they are playing on, or when troubleshooting. I know someone will say you can tell the difference by just looking at your screen but, yeah, I’m tech savvy and I want something more technical lol.

Normally, to do this I have to turn on V-sync, restart CS:GO, and check the monitor hertz by net_graph command. And this can be so frustrating sometimes.

Now I just found a much simple way to know what monitor hertz you are playing at. Simply type mat_info in the console, then CS:GO will give you tons of information. However you only need to find this line like in the picture below and see what hertz it is. Ezpz. (If you don’t know how to open console, here is how: Go to ‘Options’ -> ‘Game Settings’ -> Choose ‘Yes’ for ‘Enable Developer Console’. Then go to ‘Options’ -> ‘Keyboard/Mouse’ -> Assign a key to ‘Toggle Console’. (Recommended key: ~). Now get in game and open you console by pressing ‘~’.)

The command shows that I’m playing at 144Hz – 1024×768
