How Important is response time on monitors ? - Page 3

post #21 of 39
I can test, I have two monitors one on top of the other with different response times. If you'd like I can view a fast moving image (Like a car driving by) and I can see if I notice ghosting. I can run them at the same time too, one in VLC and the other in media player. ^_^

1000/response time = emulated refresh rate.

Emualted refresh rate must run in sync with your gpu. If your gpu is too fast then you need to use vsync.

So in short.
Your gpu is the key in what monitor you will get.

that's just a overdriven tn panel. The G2G Asus MS246H and Samsung SM2233RZ beats it and they are rated 2ms. That's on gray to gray . Movies you won't see ghosting coz they are 23fps with motion blur which is why we don't notice it. A game like crisis also use motion blur that why low fps with it is not that easily noticeable. In the end you'll only get 60fps out of it.

What would I notice the difference on then? It looks noticeably better than my old monitor (I'll get the model # when I get home for comparison). Mostly I just notice that images seem to clear off the screen instantly (IE no ghosting at all or at least that I can notice).

do this

Play a game that you can run like 120 fps but switch vsync off

Doesn't work because the advertised specs lie, they tell nothing about the actual response times.

Where did you get that formula from?
post #28 of 39
Given 8 milliseconds is 8/1000ths of a second, in one full second it can refresh all the pixels on the screen (if necessary) 1000/8 = 125 times, which makes it equivalent to a 125Hz refresh rate.

But no LCD with that response time will let you set a 120hz or 125hz one. Can you guess why?

Spoony, those are advertised response times, not the actual ones.

I find that a LOT of TN panels have ghosting that lasts for at least 2 frames, which would mean a 30ms response time at least, on some transitions. On gray to gray transitions, it would be somewhat low, but on real transitions, it would be a lot worse.

that was just a example mate. If you looked what I said earlier you must pull up a review and get its real response time. They give them in reviews then use that formula I just use. Remember they use other technologies to boost it but doing the above will give you more or less a indication if your going to have issues with some Stuff.

Btw is vsync on?
