The refresh rate is the number of times the image on the screen is refreshed per second. For example, let’s say you are using a 60 Hz monitor, which would mean refreshing your desktop 60 times every 1 second. The higher this frequency, the smoother the images are displayed and the better the visual comfort.
The refresh rate generally varies between 50 and 240 Hz; it all depends on the capabilities of your screen. It is beneficial in video games: by setting a higher refresh rate, the movements on the screen will be smoother, and your overall gaming experience will be better. Be careful, though; a higher frequency can reduce battery life, as it uses more power.
