Will this enable a 144Hz refresh rate on a monitor?

I am looking to by an Asus monitor model number VG248QE. It is a 144Hz monitor and would like to know if a MacBook Pro late 2010 will be able to support it.

    This adapter only supports 270MHz pixel clock as far as I have been able to work out. I have managed to get a 120Hz (1920x1080) signal out of it but wouldn´t imagine that you could achieve 144Hz. I would use a mini displayport to displayport cable instead since the monitor has displayport input.
