[Official] Asus PB278Q & PB278QR Thread: Read the 1st Post - Page 99

post #981 of 1503
I get that haha, mine is 'generic' as well... What I meant was is there something you are trying to do what will only work if the proper driver is installed?
post #982 of 1503
Well, i was thinking that if i installed the proper drivers for it, i would have more refresh options or is my thinking wrong on this? INF files hold info about the monitor, make/model/refresh rates that it can do and so on.
Least this is my passed experience with INF file. Asus supplies a CAT file but windows has no idea what to do with it. I am sure that there is a process for it but i have no clue as to what it is as i have not worked with CAT files. Apparently Asus doesn't have a clue either because i just spend 40 mins on the phone with them and they want me to go through the calibration for the monitor, which is fine but that won't give me the refresh rates that the monitor can do.

Not all 1440p monitors have input lag --
The upcoming ROG version (PG278Q, not PB278Q) will likely have the same input lag as the VG248QE.
They are TN panels, and they are capable of unbuffered real-time scanout.
The ROG is the first strobe-capable (ULMB/LightBoost) fast-responding 1440p TN.

Also, input lag is hard to quantify. Display specific lag? Full chain (button-to-pixels) lag? Lag from GPU to display? Lag relative to a CRT scanout? Lag relative to top edge of screen? All kinds of different lag measurement methods create different lag results.

PRAD measured a 7.2ms signal delay for the Viewsonic VP2770, a 0.9ms signal delay for the BenQ BL2710PT, they even measured a 17.8ms signal delay for the PB278Q, which isn't over 20ms.

ah, gotcha gotcha. At the very least even though it is generic...I was able to load up the ICC profiles from tftcentral for both my asus's and what a difference tongue.gif

The only lag I've noticed was when playing Farcry 3 and putting v-sync on. Keeping it off and it doesn't seem noticeable. I am not a competitive twitchy guy so I am certainly not an authority on the matter LOL.

thanks for the ICC tip, i will go have a look.

going through the thread now, it appears that one has to manually overclock the monitor (using a 3rd party program) in order to get higher refresh rates, will keep filtering the threads.

Cheers

Pretty sure multi-input monitors skip frames when OCed.

You're quite welcome. Just go to the tftcentral review of the monitor and follow their lead on the settings in the monitor controls, then load up the icc profile by going to windows color management. Since doing the tweaks on both monitors (pb278q and pa248q) they look almost identical with the exception of the very slight warmer feel of the pb278q.
