    Explained: "Why Do Some OLED's Have Motion Blur?"

    Fair point, but isn't this valid only for scenes rendered without motion blur? A cinema frame does not represent a point sample, it's got a defined frame exposure time. I feel like holding time is valuable/necessary for film albeit maybe not with 100% temporal density. It might be a cool...

    Discrepancies with input lag measurement

    Point taken! As philm2004 said, it's a shame that it's so hard for a consumer to get reliable numbers for such an important display property. 9 people out of 10 will assume advertised pixel response time is how to compare 'lag' between screens, and it's hard to blame them for doing that...

    Discrepancies with input lag measurement is the only site that produces reputable numbers on input lag. If TFTCentral or Anand says one number and Prad says something else, trust Prad. They've established their reputation here with unrivaled depth. Prad's input lag numbers are pulled from an oscilloscope setup, completely...

    EVGA 670 FTW - Any recent issues?

    The price difference isn't so significant in this country, only 40 USD at the time of purchase. Normally I'd go with a card closer to reference, but a combination of the 680+ clocks and apparent better reliability of the FTW over EVGA's base card ended up pushing me over.

    EVGA 670 FTW - Any recent issues?

    Got it installed last night and everything seems to be working great! It's a shame to see low utilization in CPU-bound scenarios but it is breathtaking when it gets to stretch its legs. It's going to be fun revisiting some of the graphically intense games from the past couple years with a...

    EVGA 670 FTW - Any recent issues?

    Thanks for all the comments, I'm looking forward to it! To those of you talking about not wanting to exceed 70C on the core due to throttling, do you mean that the clock drops from one of the boost states at this temp or are things dropping down below the base clock?

    EVGA 670 FTW - Any recent issues?

    Just finished placing the order! It's a shame the price has stayed so consistently high, but then NVIDIA has every right to charge what people will pay for it... they made the better product this round. As a furious, foaming-at-the-mouth ATI fanboy for ten years, this marks my first trek...

    EVGA 670 FTW - Any recent issues?

    Scary video! :eek: Glad to hear it's quiet, and 75 C sounds alright to me, that is cooler than the HD 4890 I've run for the past few years. I'm also assuming quiet here means no coil whine, which is a plus.

    EVGA 670 FTW - Any recent issues?

    Looking to bite the bullet on an EVGA 670 FTW 2GB... have you guys had any issues with these recently, like the flickering or red screens I've read about in the past? I'm mostly curious about reliability and coil whine. Also for the two game coupon promotions currently running (Borderlands 2...

    Connecticut - Trade in Violent Games/Media for $25

    Has Treyarch surpassed Infinity Ward? What Infinity Ward should do next... WW2.

    Don't forget that the IW of today is not the same IW responsible for CoD1, CoD2, MW1, and MW2. Very different beasts given the mass exodus of staff after MW2.

    Ikea desk gallery

    For you guys out there with Galants, particularly with A-legs, how does it handle a steering wheel? Is there any significant wobble and is the table massive enough to hold its own against strong inputs and force feedback? Also, how is the finish on the chrome plated legs? Worth getting?

    Please Don't Laugh at This Question

    The two main points of consideration are 4:4:4 chroma subsampling and input lag. You will notice half chroma resolution during desktop use and there basically isn't an HDTV out there with less than a frame of lag. Probably room for potential levels problems (16-235 vs 0-255) somewhere in there...

    FOV: Best Method of Calculation?

    WSGF's bullishness on hor+ can be a bit behind the times these days. 8+ years ago, it used to be that default fovs were all set with 4:3 in mind, and those games deemed hor+ were ones that would maintain vertical fov as the user changed from 4:3 to a widescreen resolution, hence an appropriate...

    FOV: Best Method of Calculation?

    Sure, set 90° in games specifying horizontal and 58.7° for those using vertical. In the case of those weird examples [QuakeLive, all Call of Duty titles, Oblivion, Doom 3], set 73.7°. This is all assuming 16:9 on your monitor, of course.
