    Hi Forum,

    question is in the title, I can't find it anywhere online. It's a 15-inch Macbook Pro from 2010.

    Thanks so much!

    It seems Apple removed that from the Display preference pane, but I imagine it's the industry standard 60Hz.

    Anyway to check this with a terminal command or something? I've got an app running that never tops 50 FPS, which makes me wonder if the screen refreshes at 50Hz.

    Ok thanks, think my app is faulty then.

    I found this online here.

    Since your screen is LCD, that's probably why there is no option to see or change the refresh rate.
