Just about nothing. Refresh rate != frame rate. There IS a limit to what the human eye can detect with refresh rate.

>>259038963
If you were shown information at even 10 fps you wouldn't be able to take it all in.

However being shown something for 1/1000 of a second just once you can still tell what it is.

Human eyes don't work on fps.
>>
>>259037037
Because I work and play on the same 30" monitor, and I value view angle/color stability and more vertical resolution over deeper blacks or maximum frame rate.

My ideal display would be a 40"+ 4k IPS/PLS/*VA screen with adaptive refresh that could do at least 90Hz.
120 would be nice, and 144 would be wonderful, but diminishing returns and rising GPU-induced power bills keep me from demanding it.

You can disable it and there are some other crosshairs to choose from also, all in that same awful size though.

Not enough of a benefit between 120Hz to 144Hz to justify the cost.

Oh, that's nice then.
I don't have to be paranoid about fapping anymore.

It's just that I don't remember this kind of feature being mentioned anywhere, and then there's the constantly flashing leds inside of the monitor when it's turned off.
>>
>>259042889
That shouldn't be a problem, I'm pretty sure you will be able to switch to 72fps, which I'd prefer over 60hz anyways
>>
Oh and if you want to use it for 3D you'll also have 72hz (for each eye seperately)

I haven't actually compared 3D on 120hz vs on 144hz though, it might just be a minor difference

>Guys, why don't you game on a 144hz monitor?
Because I don't play any games competitively right now where high frame rate matters, only one I do much MP in is SupCom and before that EVE. My PC is also my workstation for graphics design and such. So Resolution + Color > refresh. I'm waiting for 5k+ displays with 10-12 bit/channel (Rec 2020) for my next refresh, and if that means staying on 60 Hz I'm fine with that.

Sure, all else being equal if those displays are 100 Hz or 120 Hz or 144 Hz then great, I'd even pay a tiny premium, but it's by far the least important part of a monitor to me.

We're in sight (harhar) though of the end of display advancement for human eyes. Can't wait for wearable displays with retinal scanning displays that exceed the resolution, dynamic range, and refresh of the human visual system. Hopefully within a decade and that'll be it, no more differentiation between mobile/desktop, awesome everywhere, normal use/VR/AR. Shit has so much potential.

That's absolutely disgusting. The CRT flicker below 90 hz is unbearable.

60hz CRT is not smoother than 144hz LCD. If you think so, you must have never tried them side by side.

Sure, CRT's are still amazing, but if you have a 144hz monitor, it most likely also supports lightboost. If you go 120hz + lightboost, it's VERY similar to how oldschool CRT's look and feel.

I guess, I wish it was just a general industry standard though rather then nvidia only shit. It's not much good if it's some special feature rather then just a normal thing that's everywhere. It doesn't even make sense to be greedy over, it's not a money spinner. As a result it's going to get replaced sooner rather then later. GG nvidia, you made a graphics version of firewire.

>>259046035
>Also, WTF is 5k? Assuming typo, not assburgers.
Not a typo. "5k" is one informal naming of a doubling of 2560x1600, technical reference is WHXGA. A lot of you guys purely talk in terms of 4k, doubling 1080p, but that's for TVs (and initial screens that share production lines). Computer monitors aren't restricted that way, and can have many different aspect ratios and resolutions. Standards have been defined all the way up to QUHD, 15360x8640, though that's of doubtful value outside of massive projection systems or perhaps very specialist applications (like a large xray imager). Still, engineers have thought ahead.

For me 4k isn't very interesting, too small to be a useful jump over what we've got right now. 5k is about the minimum I'd want, and really full 16:10 8K (WHUXGA) in a 32" would be perfect since I could have double PPI for sharp details and fonts combined with lots of workable area. That though is likely a long way off, in the mean time I'd settle for less.

That though is likely a long way off, in the mean time I'd settle for less.
Also, for WHUXGA current and even the next cable standards aren't really enough either, we'd probably want silicon photonics and in turn cheap optical links to make that happen. Back when Intel was demoing LightPeak, before it became the copper based Thunderbolt, I'd hoped we had that just around the corner but they seem to have backed off for another few years unfortunately. We're probably going to have wait a while for 100 Gbps links even though it's on roadmaps.

That's stupid. You can not get tearing if you use V-sync with triple buffering at any refresh rate your monitor supports. Just use a program to force it. G-sync works as a replacement for that.

Nigga that word doesn't even apply to this. However let me break it down to you like this. There currently isn't a big difference in detail between 1080p and higher resolutions. I run a higher resolution. I can tell you this first hand. However you can tell the difference easily between 60 and 120hz. So you are guaranteed to be able to get full advantage of 120hz. Not true of 4k. At least not anytime soon.

Of course with a higher resolution you get less aliasing, but there is AA for that.
>>
>>259049123
Pretty much. However even if you can still only get 100fps, you can just set it to 100hz and the smoothness will still be very noticeable compared to 60hz.
>>
>>259049478
Why set it to 100? Why not just let it get 100fps?
>>
>>259049123
Not entirely.
Tearing and motion blur is drastically reduced even is your framerate is inconsistent.
And no vsync means significantly less input delay.

Refreshrate = Framerate is mandatory though if you have a strobing backlight display.

Wat. This is all standard stuff, literally, the standards and naming have existed for years and years. 4K was defined long before any products were actually created outside of labs, same with the rest. You can read about stuff like Rec. 2020 or others at organizations like the International Telecommunication Union and so forth. If you don't follow any of that fair enough, most people don't follow any of it either and it probably doesn't directly affect you until products exist. It's not just a real thing though it's an old thing.

As far as 16:10, I'm hoping it survives at least on the high end. It still seems to be popular for graphics design work and other higher end displays, and Apple also continues to push it hard and like it or not they've definitely got the money and volume to make it happen. Their high end notebook is 2880x1800 remember, they could have gone 16:9 when they made that but they didn't. If they, NEC, Eizo, and some of the others can keep up some volume, well it's not out of the question.

>DP 1.3 will bring VESA compression as well.
There's no magic in the compression world, it's a hack that's useful some but not all of the time. Fundamentally there is display stuff that just is not losslessly compressible, though I guess in practice most of the time it may work pretty well, and probably better then nothing. I don't consider it a true replacement for just having enough bandwidth however, but I know engineering is the art of the possible. If we always waited for perfection we'd never get anywhere.

Not sure what you mean by "support" here anon. As long as the bandwidth is there and someone wants to manufacture it then it'll be "supported", the resolution definitions don't need anything else. Every takes into account scaling. The only times it would get weird is with some non-defined resolution or with non-square pixels, but anyone could use anything from the tables if they wanted to, just a matter of money.

>Fewer overlapping feature points are cheaper to develop and thus more profitable.
Only in low margin mass manufacturing. The other approach is to use these sorts of things as a differentiator that allows them to charge much more then the cost to increase. Again, Apple, NEC, Eizo and so on all show this approach can be extremely profitable. They don't go after 80% of the market but they make lots and lots of money. Most people don't demand 16:10 (sadly) or hardware integrated calibration support or whatever, but those that do are willing to pay good money for it.

Obviously this is all speculation, who knows. But I don't think it's wild optimism either, I think 16:10 has enough attraction with enough of the market to justify continuing smaller scale production.

IPS has gotten cheaper, TN has gotten faster. VAs have ended up in an uncomfortable middle ground, jack-of-all-trades-master-of-none territory. Those who pay the most (usually for display quality) want IPS or something better, the small savings of VA is irrelevant, those who want the absolute highest refresh go TN, and those who just want the cheapest possible go cheap ass TN. That's most of the market, in an industry that runs heavily on mass manufacturing or high margins. I've got a few VA displays and they were a decent enough idea at the time, but nowadays I don't know if I'd bother.

Also LCDs last a good long while, so somebody who wants more display quality but is also cheap can likely find very good IPS screens used with a bit of hunting. Just looking at some manufacturer refurb places right now I see some still very nice (but now a few years old) screens that I wouldn't hesitate to recommend for a lot of non-pro people that are like 40-60% off list. I don't think I'd choose VA new over a very high end IPS refurb usually when they're the same price.

Yes, I am aware of the pigeon-hole principle, and never even tried to claim it was lossless.

Go read the whitepaper, the compression scheme is probably much better than you think:

Also, please be a little more reasonable about the state of silicon photonics.
Even carrier-grade communications with optical transceivers in the tens of thousands of dollars struggle to pass 10 Gbps per channel, with 2.5 Gbps being vastly cheaper.
Putting 10+ optical channels for a monitor to get something like [email protected]+Hz will not be economical anywhere in the next decade, given even best case scenarios for a new materials science breakthrough.

I run BF4 @ 60hz without aa/2xmsaa (high settings). I don't think it'll ever get higher if i use v-sync.
If i buy a 144hz monitor and disable v-sync.
Will i be able to run the game at at least 100 + hz without tearing?
OR, will it tear if i disable v-sync if i do not reach the max amount of fps for my monitor?

Keyboards aren't subject to the same economy of scale requirements. It's possible to do far more niche runs. Anything that involves major silicon fabbing though tends to want to congregate around as few standards as possible, usually with a very high end and very low end, and even those often tend to squeeze together until something disruptive comes along. When your physical matter inputs (silicon, some metals, electricity) cost pennies/dollars but the facility itself costs billions that's just the economics. Winners win big, losers lose big.

>I'm aiming to get a p2314h for general use and gaming anyway, so ips is fine for me, just wonder what a VA would be like
I've got a very high end IPS, a solid older VA, and it's a compromise panel. Noticeably worse color and viewing angles then the IPS, but noticeably better then TN. It's got fewer features too but that's not the fault of the panel.

The thing is though that like 6-8 years ago a good big IPS was like $1000+ and the *VA could be half that or less. Now looking around and big IPS displays can be found for sub $500, even sub $400. They don't have as many features either but they've got good panels and calibrate alright, if not perfectly. VAs aren't made as much though so their prices haven't dropped as much either. When saving $600-800, that's significant even for a prosumer, particularly if it's a secondary display. But when saving only $100-200? For something used constantly for many years? Eh. Inclination is to just spring for the IPS, or if I wanted high refresh get that.

>Also, please be a little more reasonable about the state of silicon photonics.
Not sure where you thought I was unreasonable anon, thought I was pretty clear in saying that I don't see it happening commercially for a long, long time. I said that back during the LightPeak stuff I was hopeful but that was years ago and it obviously didn't work out at that point.

Still, Intel's continued to be busy with demos. They demoed a 100 Gbps silicon photonics fiber link at IDF Beijing this year, and for datacenters talked about 1.6 Tbps MXC last year. I think they still claim Thunderbolt is on track for 100 Gbps by 2018, though I haven't followed it closely and maybe the schedule has slipped. Since the cables have the brains though rather then being dumb they'd presumably be really expensive, even more so then copper ones.

Still, there's no real hope for screens with high enough res to need that before 2018 either I suspect. I'm not basing plans around it or anything, I just think it's promising looking forward.

4K is already a standard amongst high end TVs and the movie industry is supporting it with remastered releases, too.
Games will not get optimized for 120Hz, you won't achieve it with any new graphically or computationally intense release.
I'm sure you are aware that 120FPS are harder to achieve than 4K res as modern GPUs didn't increase clock rates but went with more simultaneous processing capability.
The extremly high PPI values displays can achieve relative to what is in use also spreak for the easy switch to 4K.

You shouldn't be using it to hook up a PC unless it's a laptop.

HDMI is for TVs. There's a reason why your GPU gives you underscan/overscan menus when you use HDMI. You should be using DVI or DisplayPort, because those are meant for monitors and correctly display the image almost 100% of the time and can go over 60hz. Plus why do you need audio on a monitor? The speakers are almost always shit in them anyways.

Because you run several years old games on hardware that almost doubled in transistor density every 2 years - or the game was a visually dumbed down console port or indy trash to begin with. It's like saying you can decompress a file (movie) faster or with less relative performance requirement than a PC from 2005 - doesn't come at a surprise as the algorithm didn't become more demanding over night.

Single link is, but Dual Link (which is more expensive and has tighter cable reqs) did 2560x1600 fine. How did you think all those screens were driven back in the early 00s?

These days though I don't know that you'd find anything without DP instead, which is much better in a lot of ways (including not having the clock signaling requirements DVI did). So it's a non-issue, we've got standardization in the PC world on something good happily. Too bad TV ended up on HDMI.

I'm aware, it's just the signal between both channels is not versatile.

If an hdmi signal is outputted you won't be getting a display port signal from the other end, but the vice versa works, and encouraging display port isn't bad, it's just if you're a consumer and own a HDTV or something another, chances are it doesn't come with a display port, enabling you with very few options regarding refresh rate and other benefits for the computer centric device, Displayport.

Not sure what and where you're browsing so can't help you with that. Older screens used DVI though which is still fine, DP -> DVI adapters are cheap, or most video cards still include a DVI port or two also. Just don't use HDMI.

>>259060048
You can't use anything over 60hz on an hdmi cable, period.

If you use an HDMI to DP adapter, it is still limited to HDMI's limits.

If you use a DP to HDMI adapter, it is still limited to HDMI's limits. Aka 60hz.

You don't just magically gain 120hz capability by using an adapter

But the industry does use it. It's the standard. All BD, all standard Internet video, and all broadcast in first world countries (the ones that actually matter commercially). I'm genuinely sorry if you depend purely on broadcast in some shithole that is still on SD or have such a bad netlink that you are forced to still use SD downscales for internet video, but that doesn't change what the industry standard is now.

I responded to >>259058275 where you said "media has barely reached 720p" which is entirely, ludicrously wrong. 1080p has been normal for a long time now, and my first 720p show is from 2006, and everything shifted to at least 720p within a year or so after that.

4K has only just started to get going, of course that's not close to universal yet. It'll take 4-5 years probably, just like in the past. But all the parts are industry standards and coming together on time, and the normal progression is happening. Manufacturing is ramping up, software codecs are getting updated (HEVC), etc. It's not going to be in <$400 cheap boxes for a long time, but it's rapidly dropping into high-end territory too. Media will follow hardware penetration, with some early adopters, a large middle rush, and then some late ones trickling in, just like always.

That wasn't me. My first post was >>259058647 and I talked only about 1080p.

As far "industry standard" though yeah, UHDTV is in fact an "industry standard" published by the ITU. Rec. 2020 and all that were finalized and put up back in 2012. High end TVs are starting to use it, some media is starting to as well, and that's how it goes, we've all been on this ride many times before (well, those of us who aren't that young). Film intended for theater release is generally mastered at higher res then 1080p, so it's pretty trivial for them to produce high res releases and cheap easy money. Not sure what you find confusing about all this.

They aren't the same, but they are linked.

Refresh rate is how many times per second your monitor refreshes the image. FPS is how many images your GPU sends per second.

So a 144hz monitor is capable of displaying anything up to 144fps.

As for a limit, if there is one, we haven't yet reached it.

>A: DisplayPort-to-HDMI adaptors and DisplayPort-to-DVI adaptors are very simple and only operate one way. For instance, when a DP-to-HDMI adaptor is connected to a PC that supports DP++ (Dual-Mode) capability, the PC senses the presence of the adaptor and sends HDMI signals over the DisplayPort connector rather than DisplayPort signals. No signal conversion is performed by the HDMI adaptor. HDMI signals are merely passed through. The unique DisplayPort adaptor capability enables the PC to connect to a variety of displays via the DisplayPort connector including HDMI, DVI, and VGA. VGA adaptors are more complex and perform active signal conversion from DisplayPort to VGA. These adaptors also operate only one way. Unfortunately, HDMI does not support conversion to other display formats as does DisplayPort.

http://www.displayport.org/faq/

direct from the DP site.

HDMI signal is carried over DP, not sent exclusively or changed like most other conversions, it simply travels along it regularly. So DP is not limited to HDMI port range, but more accurately, the socket will only interpret HDMI. And it's still kind of bullshit because I've gotten my games to run at 75Hz before the recent catalyst update, so I don't know what exactly happened, if I changed HDMI cables or what, but it is possible.

I'm going to use this opportunity to correct myself: I recently posted that my ASUS VG 248 QE had "ghosting" problems or something of the nature. I have fixed the issue. The monitor has an option in its menu called "tracefree". Naive as I was when I first turned the thing on I went through those menu options and since "tracefree" sounds like a good thing I cranked that slider up. Turn that shit off and the ghosting was resolved. Least useful feature ever.

P.S. I don't think lightboost is helpful in any way either. Maybe my version was broken but I experimented - after fixing the "tracefree traces" problem - and without making the monitor really fucking bright I couldn't see any improvement in the demos they have on their site, flying saucers, scrolling images and whatnot. No advantage to lightboost. I have sensitive eyes and use a low brightness setting so even if there were advantages when increasing the brightness I couldn't benefit from them. So fuck lightboost, waste of time if you're like me.

Because my options were to go cheap for 120hz 24" FHD monitor that lacks even a displayport connection and much more, or to buy a korean 1440p 27" IPS monitor FOR EVEN LESS thats reliably capable of at the very least 96hz.

I'll take a tiny bit of ghosting with the higher res, bigger screen, better colors and cheaper price.

A 144hz gayming monitor is great at gaming - and blows at everything else.
An IPS monitor, especially a better one is good at everything, including gaming - not great, but still good.

So to get an expensive ass TN monitor for my main one sounds extremely unwise considering the amount of time I spend using the monitor NOT for gaming. (and I dont even watch movies on a monitor, I have a TV for that)

Most of the problem with werid and zany games is that the resolution and refresh rate they're displayed at actually clash with what you're supposed to be feeling. Namely, Killer 7 and Katamari Darmacy.

But with indie games on the rise, maybe with efficient programming the devs could make it so you can get exactly the intended experience you were meant to.

This. Korean IPS at 120hz is amazing. Especially for $300.

Sometimes I miss my CRT. The complete lack of motion blur was fantastic.

Like if you look, when she's running, imagine that in silky smooth 75Hz, instead of 30. You would really be able to get an idea of what the intended atmosphere was.

Are you sure? Dos the gamma shift when you move around?

I'm assuming the reply was meant for me, the 144hz guy. Yes, the gamma does shift a little but not noticeably. The colors stay pretty much the same.

I don't plan to use it like that. Just where I'm living, it's not feasible to have a desktop. I might set up somewhere on campus at times as there's a couple hour wait for my ride to be done with classes.

Is it bad for a gaming laptop, though
I know. I know...

What's it like to play at the optimum refresh rate?

For anyone that has a high-end card and a 1440p monitor, how was the transition? I'm scared to go through 1080 to 1440.

Don't get me wrong HDMI is not bad to use, it's just not ideal for PC use. It's fine for consoles, however.
