165hz on a laptop supported?

Can I run ESO on a gaming laptop that have 165hz refresh mode, it is wired to the wall via extension cable. Or am I going to have black screen issues, thanks

    my desktop monitor is 165hz, so i frequently run the game at around 150 fps without any issues (the game by default has a hard cap of 100 FPS unless you adjust the settings)
    plays PC/NA

    There are addons that allow you to unlock the framerate cap. 100 FPS seems like a weird place to artificially cap if you ask me. I have a 200hz Ultra wide monitor and 3080 TI. I typically cap at 144Hz. I think most people are kidding themselves if they think they can tell a difference much above that TBH. I can run very stable with my setup in ultra settings @ 144 hz @ 3440x1440. I have gone as high as 180, but the game is not quite stable that high. To my eyes, 144 locked looks better than frames bouncing from 165-180.

    Whether or not you can run 165 comes down mostly to your GPU, desired graphics settings, and Resolution of your screen (ESO specifically is also fairly CPU intensive). I can easily run 200plus frames in 1920x1080, but couldn't do that in Ultra Wide or 4k. I would only go as high as what you can run stable 99% of the time at your desired graphics settings and resolution. I want to run with max graphics on an ultra wide monitor, so with my setup, 144hz seems to be the sweet spot.

    Its essentially a 3 way balancing act. Pick your desired Graphics settings, your screen determines your resolution, and your GPU/CPU will determine how many frames you can pump out. I would cap 10-15% below of your average stable frame rate. If you rarely see 165 FPS, dont cap it there.

    I agree but this is a 2014 game started many years earlier when the PC masterrace was boasting about a standard 60FPS compared to the PS3/360's standard 30FPS so I'm not surprised about the 100Hz soft limit and am frankly shocked that we can reach 100FPS normally without issue given the games code issues.

    100 FPS limit so gfx card doesn't go all vacuum cleaner mode, I guess.

    This thread has been moved to the PC Technical Support section, as it is better suited there.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    Well thanks everyone and I do sorry for late reply. I did switched from 60hz to 165hz played a bit for like 20mins or so and my RTX 3060 and CPU cooked eggs on them so ı switched back to 60hz.

    Such a shame in todays tech laptop cooling still broken and I have no idea why people begging for thin laptops as they have very limited space for cooling.

    Mind you, somehow laptop works fine even when CPU power reduced to %25 max from Windows Power Settings AND still gets quite warm and hot. I have to use and monitor temps with HWinfo64 did put alarms for temps so I can become even more paranoid.
