LCD Overdrive: what is it? Is safe to use?

post #1 of 8

Hello, I know it has something to do with input lag and all, but it is safe to use?

Regards.

It is safe but produces unwanted side effects. Most monitors have some form of overdrive built in already and i think AMD's overdrive doesn't work when a monitor has it built in. The side effects are input lag and inverse ghosting (pixel overshoot). Pixels change colour too fast and change to the wrong colour instead for a slight moment and this is what inverse ghosting is.

So yes, it is very safe to use and your monitor is probably using some form of overdrive already!

Esto es para monitores viejos que no tienen procesamiento de imagen en otras palabras dejalo apagado...
No hay beneficio alguno.. Si tu notas blur/lag en la imagen puedes tratarlo pero no siempre funciona


(This is for old monitors without control for image processing in another words leave it off. If you experience blur/lag you can try but it dont always work)

Not sure of your other components w/o sig,but When I have checked the box on last TWO monitors(I-Inc IH253 or AOC 22 LCD)
w/AMD (5770,5770 CF,5850,5850,CF,6870,6870CF,6850,6850CF) it would either instantly look awful
or make absolutely no difference.
Try all,see what you feel is best!
