    LG 48CX

    I know you could always run a 2560x1440 rez upscaled even on the C9's - but I wonder if you could run a ultrawide rez or other letterboxed rez on 1:1 on a LG CX at 4:2:2 chroma 120hz off of a 1000 series or 2000 series nvidia gpu (with VRR) as long as it was within the bandwidth limit of hdmi...

    Sweet Baby Jeebus Alienware 55" 4k120 OLED Displayport

    I wonder if you could run a ultrawide rez or other letterboxed rez on it at 4:2:2 120hz, within the bandwidth limit of hdmi 2.0. Going to post the question in the CX thread since at least one person there already has a 65" LG CX I think.

    I'll be happy with ~6ms on a monitor with such great OLED per pixel visuals and other features (hdmi 2.1, VRR, 120hz 4k 4:4:4, etc.) while also not being limited to a slim ~13' tall or so belt model . 120hz is 8.3ms per frame and that is only if, even if ignoring a few frame rate "potholes" in...

    It's way better than non VRR.. I didn't mean to imply that at all. VRR itself is great. What I was saying is that you already have a high Hz monitor that gets appreciable blur reduction and motion definition increases starting around 100fps average, in some cases equating to a 70 - 100 -...

    What do you mean by measure? HDMI 2.1 can do 4k 120hz at 4:4:4 chroma, HDMI 2.0 can't. You can run 1440p at 120hz on HDMI 2.0 though with full chroma, and I think you can run 4k 120hz at 4:2:0, 8bit, on the LG CX from a hdmi 2.0 gpu for now. Lower chroma affects text rendering and for...

    Nice to have another tool in the toolbox but as they said, it has diminishing returns vs high fps+highHz gameplay. The less percent of BFI and dimming you engage the gap narrows between that compared to the blur reduction benefits of raw fps+HighHz at full color brightnesses/highlight's ranges ~...

    I'll have to see if I can find it again.. maybe it made it in at the last minute? I saw one earlier sneak peek vid where he said it had low-medium-high bfi settings , then a later vid where he said unfortunately they changed it back to either on or off due to problems with the implementation...

    BFI and strobing are often quoted as lowering the brightness by around the same percent as they reduce the blur. For example, 20% blur reduction --> 20% reduction in brightness, 75% blur reduction ---> 75% reduction in brightness. That is a huge hit on screen brightness capability and will...

    Yes for now (unless it's a very easy to render game like L4D2) which is why more advanced interpolation in the future to multiply frames 2x, 3x and up is probably one of the ways forward to fill higher Hz. There is machine learning upscaling of lower resolutions to essentially full fidelity...

    Not quite polar opposite really. I aim for a balance. 100fps average in order to span around 70 - 100 - 120 so that much of the frame rate graph is in the higher hz capability of my high hz monitor. That's meant running things at veryhigh to very high+ rather than ultra a lot of the time...

    I understand the low latency and better performance push (within reason) but people still dominate competitive games with fullscreen dx12 like it is. I'm not a smash up derby arena fps shooter gamer really and prefer rpgs and adventure games (some difficult though like souls and souls-like)...

    Personally I still play some dx11 games or set some games to dx11 mode for sli compatibility, and run them fullscreen. Some games just run better in fullscreen mode regardless - better frame rate, less stutter that some seem to get in windowed mode resource wise. o_O...

    These are some interesting options for using more than one mouse cursor and mouse in windows 10. I'm not sure that some of them would allow the 2nd mouse to be outside of a game running in fullscreen mode though. I'd have to experiment with some of them...

    Solution.. don't go under 40fps. That is molasses anyway. Even with g-sync duplicating frames under 40fps you are only seeing the same frozen frame snapshots through multiple screen refreshes. For example when your graph is 30fps you are seeing the same frame 4 times as long on a 120hz...

    When I hopefully am able to get a LG 48 CX OLED I will be running it with a black background and no icons, no taksbar, and viewing it from around 40" away. I'll use a different monitor for desktop/apps, taskbar shortcuts etc. The OLED will be a media and gaming "stage". I'll also keep it's...

    They call it a refresher but it's more like a planer / evener. A wear-evening process "torch" that burns the rest of the oleds down by the same amount, sort of like making pencil erasers all worn down the same slim margin after some are used more than others, or dimming some light bulbs to...

    Is VR even worth it?

    yes and I guess amd is working on something similar. Facebook is working on this in particular with their system for higher fidelity untethered gameplay though, so in that case you wouldn't be linked/tethered to your pc and nvidia gpu power.

    I got burn in on my 8.5" samsung oled tablet after 3+ years but that could be because I ran an "always on" type app on occasion to keep it's screen from timing out so I could use it as a system stats readout at my pc. That or more likely the fact that I put a cup of coffee on it a few times...

    yes that's because they aren't fully wearable and usable all the time in a more sleek format and untethered across the board yet. That and also because mostly just one person has one rather than everyone having their own like a smart phone (and not yet in a local, national or worldwide AR mixed...

    Even if you did borderless fullscreen you wouldn't be able to designate a smaller screen area as it's own monitor as far as Hz goes unless you eventually had modular seamless bezel free monitor building blocks. For example if you had a 16k wall of screen that could only do 30hz or 60hz but...

    Like some other things in the past, exclusive fullscreen might just be one of those things that goes by the wayside even if some people stubbornly try to cling to it. Really I would like virtual monitor spaces with their own Hz if possible to be the standard so that with a wall of high rez...

    I have the ergotron LX HD monitor arms. They are huge and pricey but I love them. Their prices fluctuate to even higher but with patience I got mine at $250 rather than $280 or $330. Their specs say they can hold 30 pounds but I bet they could hold more if you tighten the allen...

    Screensaver is probably key. I suspend my LCD monitors after a considerable period but I haven't used a screen saver in years on my pc. My nvidia shield uses an image gallery screen saver by default on my living room tv though, which is a fald VA tv for now. It's good to hear that you've...

    this is my experience regarding view distance It seems like if you subtract about 1/6th of the monitor's diagonal size you get a rough estimate of a reasonable "nearest" viewing distance to work from. (rough "nearest" estimate, not necessarily "best" distance). Monitor size divided by 6 ...

    NVIDIA Ampere GPUs to feature 2x performance than the RTX 20 series, PCIe 4.0, up to 826 mm² dies and 20 GB of VRAM

    Some replies from members in these threads say they are fine with 4k performance as it is but as we get into 120hz - 144hz 4k (and 120hz hdmi 2.1 4k TVs) we need a lot of gpu performance to stay in the 100 - 120fps range to fill those higher hz. Otherwise you really aren't getting much out of...

    Sony Is Struggling With PlayStation 5 Price Due to Costly Parts

    Well PS3 ($499 and $599) and PS4 pro (~ $400) were not cheaply retail priced at release. If you wait to buy older pc hardware or buy used pc hardware you can get it cheaper just like a console 2 - 3 years after it's release or used of course so that's not really an apples to apples...

    Regarding "PoP" .. I bumped the vibrancy up a few % on my LG 32gk850g (VA screen) some even at the price of accuracy since I mostly use it for gaming. You can also use nvidia freestyle if on a nvidia GPU. Freestyle via a hotkey pops up an overlay of slider controls on the left side of the...
