Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 164

post #1631 of 2231
My VG248QE will be at my door when I come home today! It's a shame that I won't be able to use Lightboost... but I guess 144hz is already a huge improvement from 60hz tongue.gif
I really hope I'll be able to fuel the monitor with sufficient frames though. My 7870XT can't exactly compete with SLI 680s wink.gif

I have an AMD GPU. I know it's somehow possible to enable it, but it seems very troublesome plus I don't have a scapegoat Nvidia GPU

LightBoost is an nVidia technology. They intentionally made it hard for AMD users to enable LightBoost. You still need to borrow somebody's an nVidia laptop/computer (with 3D drivers installed) for the DVI hotplug method.

No one has gotten around to writing some sort of wrapper to trick the monitor to enable LB mode on an AMD card?

As already posted elsewhere in old threads during people playing with softmccs -- there's an undocumented nVidia-specific DDC protocol to unlock LightBoost.

Easier and easier methods of LightBoost methods are being invented all the time, and I know of a few in the pipeline. Officially, Blur Busters can only advocate nVidia for LightBoost since I don't want to upset nVidia.

At the same time, I'd like to know if AMD has plans for their own brand of strobe backlights (other than the AMD-compatible Samsung SA700D/750D/950D strobe backlight, but it is not as low-lag as LightBoost)

I will have a solution for AMD/ATI users soon. It will also simplify the process for NVIDIA users.

It's been taking a while because as Mark said, they intentionally made it hard to enable (there's encryption involved). There are also some other implementation challenges that I'm currently working on. I want to make this work as smoothly as possible.

Ok, the cat is out of the bag.

I am beta testing this, and it's a godsend for triple LightBoost users.
Just run an executable and all 3 LightBoost monitors enable LightBoost simultaneously.
Even after they're already fully setup in surround.
This saves hours of pain.

(NOTE: Blur Busters Blog only officially supports LightBoost 2D on nVidia, and is testing only on nVidia)
