Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 209

post #2081 of 2231
I really can't decide between this monitor and the BenQ XL2411T, can anyone convince me either one is better?

They are both 144hz (The BenQ seems to say 120 hz but I've been told it does 144hz?) but I will most likely use 120Hz + the lightboost hack anyway.

The BenQ is cheaper and I hear that both monitors have pretty bad colours or something?

I just can't decide. Though from what I've heard the VG248QE is less tall at its minimum height setting, which is a bonus for me as I won't have to remove the shelf on my desk.

I had a QE bout half a year ago but the black uniformity on that unit was excellent.

Might have to go back to a BenQ XE and just wait for G-Sync monitors to be released...

You need to try some of the ICC color profiles in this thread. Here's the one I use:

The first thing I did was create an .icc profile with my ColorMunki Display colorimeter. The overall effect to black levels was negligible. The clouding I have is bad.

My blacks got significantly better with the ICC profile I linked.

Wow, thanks for that .icc profile. I had tried some others, but this one really tweaks the blacks even with default splendid settings on the monitor.
post #2086 of 2231
How did you get 144hz to 432, I get that is multiplied by 3 but why is that the case, I never heard of that, I always thought 120 or 144 hz was what it was. So how does 144 hz turn into 432 hz ?

Is it possible to get at least 60hz or 72hz per eye in 3D over a passive DP 1.2 cable? I've got a 780 ti classy.
post #2088 of 2231
I have a 780 Ti Classified, but haven't bought any cables. I asked this over at the 780 ti thread, but didn't get a response. I'm trying to find out if I need more than one cable with my setup, since I'm going to be using G-Sync at some point, whether it's installing the DiY module or getting a monitor that has it built in, and since I'm also going to be viewing 3D media, whether it's movies (which won't support G-Sync's anti-tearing anyway), or games. Ideally, I'd be watching movies and playing games at 72Hz per eye, 3D, G-Synced, at 144Hz total. I gotta know whether I can get any or all of those goals done over one cable or if I'll need to buy more than one and switch sources based on what content I'm viewing (which I'm fine with--I'd rather do that every time than deal with lower rates). Can I get 72Hz per eye, 3D, G-Synced, at 144Hz total with a DisplayPort 1.2 cable? Can I get 72Hz per eye, 3D, G-Synced, at 144Hz total with a DP 1.2 to dual-link DVI?

Also, I checked monoprice to see if they had any DP 1.2 male-to-male cables, but all they had were white ones (I'd rather stick with my mostly black theme for my system). Know another place where I can get cables that will stay in line with the 1.2 spec that aren't like $40? I want to stay away from the mini version.

I'm not sure. The one I posted was actually made and/or posted by someone else in this thread before me. That's how I found it. Try searching google for your monitor model number combined with the term "ICC" and see what you can find. Also, changing ICC profiles is not a very intuitive process in Windows. Find a guide to walk you through it, and it's simple after that.
