Yamakasi Catleap Monitor Club - Page 151

post #1501 of 11285
At first I was a bit at unease about getting a 60hz Catleap monitor since I will be gaming and was thinking that maybe I should get some 120hz benQ what not, but then I realized that I had been gaming on my Samsung SyncMaster 2232BW, which is a 60hz monitor afaik, for the last 5 years and I never had any complaints gaming wise. For me it's the PC which needs to run games properly, not the monitor.

But I have not tried 120hz monitor, so who knows what sensations that would bring.


Either way catleap will be better quality vise and if anything I can only get 60+ hz which will surpass my old syncmaster in this aspect as well.

Catleap is great if not defected, as I Read. But make sure you get a buyer who ships fast.

Mine is sitting at :
>"Handed over to Air carrier" INCHEON<
(which is the Currier in South Korea)

So basically it hasn't left the country yet, it just sits there for the last 3+ days. Anyone had the same problem?

Makes me anxious tracking my Catleap each day and finding that there has been no change. frown.gif

So maybe thats why the 5850 and 5870 is not compatible?
Do you know if the HP ZR2740w 27-inch IPS also requires one dvi-d?
Edit: Anyway i don't want to clutter this thread any further, I made a thread regarding my 5850 + catleap compatibility questions/concerns. Any input is greatly appreciated, thanks.

Yeah bud. Sorry. It's not because of the monitor. It's anything that runs at that resolution. Including the Dell.

Example display modes (single link):
HDTV (1,920 × 1,080) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (139 MHz)
UXGA (1,600 × 1,200) @ 60 Hz with GTF blanking (161 MHz)
WUXGA (1,920 × 1,200) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (154 MHz)
SXGA (1,280 × 1,024) @ 85 Hz with GTF blanking (159 MHz)
WXGA+ (1440 × 900) @ 60 Hz (107 MHz)
WQUXGA (3,840 × 2,400) @ 17 Hz (164 MHz)
Example display modes (dual link):
QXGA (2,048 × 1,536) @ 75 Hz with GTF blanking (2 × 170 MHz)
HDTV (1,920 × 1,080) @ 85 Hz with GTF blanking (2 × 126 MHz)
WUXGA (1,920 × 1,200) @ 120 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (2 x 154 MHz)
WQXGA (2,560 × 1,600) @ 60 Hz with GTF blanking (2 × 174 MHz) (30-inch / 762 mm Apple, Dell, Gateway, HP, NEC, Quinux, and Samsung LCDs)
WQXGA (2,560 × 1,600) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (2 × 135 MHz) (30-inch / 762 mm Apple, Dell, Gateway, HP, NEC, Quinux, and Samsung LCDs)
WQXGA (2,560 × 1,600) @ 60 Hz with CVT-RB blanking (269 MHz) (This is for high end monitors when operating at greater than 24 bits per pixel.)
WQUXGA (3,840 × 2,400) @ 33 Hz with GTF blanking (2 × 159 MHz)

You will not be able to view the difference between 60 and 100hz through a video. Your monitor only outputs at 60hz, and even assuming that the person recorded at 100hz and renders it at 100fps, you will only be able to see 60.

As for image quality, it will be very subjective due to recording methods and again, output methods.

My rig is a budget build and the gtx560 ti's pixel clock is probably what's hampering me.

Anything above 85hz working on the multi input version? You should be able to ht 97hz on automatic settings if its a 120hz capable display.

But to be safe I'd google search something about the 5870 or whatever and 2560x1440 resolution to see what others on the web who have the same card have written.

I don't see what DVI-I has to do with anything. DVI-I just means that the DVI port can output both an analogue signal (VGA) and a digital signal (the DVI/HDMI signal). The important thing is that it is Dual-Link (ie, 27 digital pins). As long as it's not a DVI-A port, which is analogue only.

Thank you! I appreciate you clearing this up for me. smile.gif
