You should still be able to hit 97-101hz with your cards. I wouldn't sell your gtx 580's for 680's for an extra 20hz. I'd wait for the october launch of the gtx 780 or whatever they end up calling the GK110. wink.gif

I would be interested in buying 10-20 of these monitors, however not all at once. when these come around will I only be able to place one order of these? or will i be able to purchase them over time?

Depends on their decision to make another batch when the first one runs out, I don't see any reason why they would not.

Thanks for the info, seems reasonable enough. I would be surprised to see if someone doesn't start selling pre-over clocked models.

yeah I would be too. This is all so new, who knows what things will be like in a few months. OP said that the ability to overclock these monitors was unknown just 2 months ago.

Personally, I don't have and can't afford the hardware to benefit from the overclockability of these displays. I was lucky enough to pick up a 2C model from another member on the cheap.

If everything turns out like it should, the Korean manufactures could sell a boat load of these monitors by producing really the first monitors that has everything that gamers want at a reasonable price.

Really interested to see what happens over the next few months as the awareness of these monitors grow. biggrin.gif

If I was not already disappointed in my 6990 in some very specific ways regarding frame perception - which, yes, I should have been more aware of during my extensive pre purchase research - I would would never upgrade to a 680 based on the fact that I 'might' get the Catleap Q270 100hz+ model and be able to push a slightly higher hz.

It's just the little bit of extra motivation that I needed to push me into the uncomfortable "selling on ebay" mode. I guess the end result will be worth it.

Damn you Australia, and your over inflated prices. Seriously. We earn the same money - our living costs are through the roof (at least in sydney), yet we pay 700 bucks for a 499 US dollar card. And the exchange rate is even tipping (slightly) in our favor.

/end biznitch session.

Thanks.

I would suggest you carefully read through the OP (and any links) for this thread and the Catleap Monitor Club thread; you're asking a lot of questions that have already been answered.

Short versions; this monitor can take 120-130Hz (at least warmed up) with the 2B versions, and video cards can drive anywhere from 90Hz up to 133Hz depending on which card and how you set it up in software. More information can be found in the OPs.


 

Well, it seems nobody who knows exactly what they are doing reluctant to chime in enlighten the community with the exact informations and facts.

 

Is DVI-Dual Link all about the copper bandwidth limitations? How about DVI source limitations and DVI sync limitations?

 

So which one than can be overclocked? DVI source which is 330 MHz in AMD and Nvidia cards regardless? If so how do we overclock the TMDS, how doe we overclock the digital code?

 

Do we force the driver refresh rate of the monitor which will push the hardware beyond the 330MHz limit?

 

Or we are only overclocking refresh rate in software which has nothing to do with the hardware? If so, what does that mean? Is that a true 100Hz, 120Hz or 133Hz? Will it work with Microsoft and applications/games?

Well if you watched my OC video or follow any of my posts, you'll see I had the pixel clock running at up to 537mhz, with 133hz refresh rate at 2560x1440, in full 32-bit colour. All cards have a limit of around a 400mhz pixel clock. So whether it's AMD or Nvidia. Which means you'll get roughly around 97hz-103hz refresh rate max on any video card (mostly). The exception is the new GTX 680. And that's because the 680 can power a 4k display at 60hz. Which means...luckily...it's enough to power a 1440p display at 120hz. Although, unofficially. By doing this method, yes we are exceeding the stated limit of copper cable dvi cables. Not sure how that works out. So what we find is that, regardless...you're guaranteed to be able to do at least 97hz refresh rate regardless of your video card.

The limiting factor, is whether the monitor you buy has a pcb that is capable of running the panel at that rate. That is the only thing to worry about. check the original cat leap club nvidia OC guide I wrote or check out the video in my sig. Cheers.

Oh, and here's a pic of my 133hz OC. 338

Thanks HyperMatrix.

 

Do you happen to know if the monitor is receiving 133Hz or just the limit of the graphics card? And does it play well with the games at that refresh rate? And if you don't mind to upload the monitor .inf of this 133Hz?

 

Thanks

The highest I actually use to "Play" is around 124hz because it's fully perfect without any issues even after extended periods. Why 124 and not just 120hz? Well..as we go up higher, it has trouble actually putting out the refresh rate it's supposed to. For example, a 120hz display will put out 119-121hz. But this monitor, set to 120hz, will put out 115-119hz. So by going up to 123-124hz, I end up with an active 119hz-121hz.

And yes, the refresh rate will act and behave properly, IF you follow the OC guide in my signature below. Otherwise half of your games will revert back to 60hz when you play them. The limitation, even at 537mhz pixel clock didn't come from the card. At that refresh rate, your horizontal refresh rate is at 199khz. It's the 200khz which is the limit (I'm assuming from the PCB...because even at 200khz...that's ridiculously high. lol). But realistically...running a 60hz panel at nearly 222% of its stated specifications is scary. It follows the standard rule of Overclocking. Find your maximum OC, then bring it down a bit for long-term stability.

As for the inf, I already mentioned going through my youtube guide linked in my sig! There is a downloadable package in the video description that contains all tools and drivers, along with video guidance on how to use them. So don't worry about anything. Just get your hands on a B series monitor and you'll be set. wink.gif
