Yep, I noticed my eye strain is basically gone too... I used to have my eyes feel like they dried out some, but that hasn't happened since I got this monitor several days ago and have run 96hz (now 115, working on 120).

Cross-posting this from the Korean PLS Club thread:

I tried toggling between 60 and 115hz and the difference is immediately obvious just moving my gun around, even at really high speeds (such as during a near-180) it's staying ghost/blur free. BELIEVE THE HYPE if you're on the fence about trying a high refresh rate panel such as these... no guarantees you get one that can OC well but, if you do... good gods is it amazing. The best comparison I can make is almost CRT-like motion and sharpness, all while maintaining IPS-type color and 2560x1440 res. Even zooming in with a 4x scope on my AEK-971 is staying crystal-clear and smooth, rather than looking like a blur as it centers the scope during the animation. And that is VERY quick motion.

Seriously... these things are probably the best LCD displays I have ever seen for a monitor. And I've seen/owned a lot including the 3007WFP-HC and a U3011. I'm keeping my framerate at 110-130 90% of gameplay and 95-110 probably the other 10%.

Yep, I can see it quite readily between 60ish and 80 even when I toss on full Ultra settings and go into some big explosions tongue.gif , not as severe an impact but it is there for me.

Yes, to take full advantage. But you will still notice an increase in motion once you go over 60. Some people will misinterpret that.

I don't have a 1440p (im still on my TN Samsung 22" 1050p) but the difference is there. I play a bit of Killing Floor and multiplayer is capped at around 82-83 frames and it's quite noticeable. Just as the difference is between 40 to 60 on a 60hz.

So in essence if your running 120 Hz monitor your not seeing better performance or fluidity of motion over a 60 Hz monitor until you can push over 60 FPS.

Thanks for clarification.

Not really... you still will have less blurring overall, but it won't be anywhere near as big of a reduction as running at high framerate with high refreshrate combined. I was on a 9600 GSO running 96hz and the difference between 40fps on that and 40fps on 60hz was small but there. Now I'm back on real cards (660 Ti SLI) and running high of both at 110hz smile.gif.

Pretty much.

My point being, is that there isn't really a threshold. You will continue to notice better visuals/fluidity as you move up your frames. It might not be scaling linear but the difference is always there. From what I can tell at least.

The hardest thing is to say that what you can see, is what I can see. Everything in this category is completely subjective.

OT:

What panel do you guys recommend? Im thinking about making the jump to 1440p this fall. I was looking at the Sammy LS27A850DS. I'm not sold on these Korean monitors. It's too big of a risk imo on something that represents core of my experience. If I buy a monitor, I want it to be PERFECT. I just curious if its worth dropping down from 120 to 60hz. It would me nice if Asus or Samsung made a 120hz 1440p. Doesn't have to be IPS/PLS. I just want that resolution

We all need to keep in mind that all of our eyes are different too. Some will see a difference, and some won't. It is truly subjective. I did see a difference between 60hz and 85hz, some will not. We get too tied up with objective opinions, graphs etc. Forget what you read, see what you like.

Last question :

If two 1440p monitors running 120 Hz & 60 Hz are both pushing 60 FPS - there isn't performance gains OR loss from the 120 Hz monitor?

Yes, need to keep this in mind as well. There are def still benefits even now with my relatively low fps (averages probably 40; I can get above 60 at times) and I was hoping to get more of a discussion going about this in general so cool. smile.gif
