AFAIK it somewhat is. From my chats with a few ebay sellers, they send the pixel perfect monitor to the manufacturer and it goes through better testing. In which it's tested for no bright pixels.

Anyone know which of these has the smallest side bezels for a multi-monitor config? I don't see measurements anywhere and it's hard to tell in photos.

Thanks!

Side bezel on the Catleap is slightly under 1". I have an Achevia Shiman at work which I can measure on Monday, but I think it is larger. The catleap also looks much better IMHO.

I've been considering a 3-monitor setup with Catleaps, but I would probably strip the panels out of the enclosures and use articulating stands to get them closer.

Ok so I have a Samsung 120 hz display with tn panel and its great I love the 120 hz but in most games I can't get the 120 fps I'm looking for even with my CPU overclocked to 5ghz I'm getting 85 fps in bf 3 mp with 7950s in cf

Figure I'm in a CPU bottle neck and the 70-90 fps range in games looks laggy and annoying
Thinking about getting one of these displays what do you recommend as of now

I know I can destroy 60hz and since the refresh rate will match ill be happy I hope

I've heard u can get higher refresh rates with these as well how does that work ?

Do you think I will be satisfied with the performance?

The image quality is very good if you cap the framerate to something like 59 fps with radeonpro and force vsync.

Honestly 70-90 fps shouldn't look laggy and annoying, it sounds like microstutter to me. For kicks just try capping the framerate with RadeonPro and see if it smooths things up on the Samsung. If it does then you're seeing microstutter. The option is called dynamic framerate control. Try using 59, you shouldn't notice any input lag with that and vsync which you should also force to always on in Radeon Pro.

Even with one card if I'm not near 120 fPS it's choppy I'm just picky I want it smooth so I'm thinking ill downgrade to 60hz make life easy
And since 7950 cf is overkill at 1920x1080 figure it's the way to go

That was just the early models, evidently the ones you can get now don't really overclock. My brother has one and he says it goes to 66hz... which is 10% improvement, but certainly nothing like 120.

However if you're getting 70-90 fps at 1080p, I don't think you are going to get that great of FPS at 2560x1440. Your GPU's will be working 50% harder then at 1080p. I guess if it really is a CPU bottleneck you would be fine, but I doubt your i5 at 5ghz is bottlenecking at 70fps.

All the tests I've done show the CPU being the bottle neck in CPU intensive games like bf3 multiplayer

In say witcher 2 I get full usage so it's only a bottle neck in certain situations but because of my need for 120 fPS it's irritating I feel like 7950s in cf with my CPU will be able to do 60 at 1440p and with a 60 hz it will look smooth

If i recall the 6870s have 1gb of vram.. at 1440p it's an issue.

Also what happened to the pcbanks?
