Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 26

So noob question time. This is my first monitor @ 120hz+ coming from a standard 60hz. I have a GTX 680 so I would really like to push the smoothness limit here and eventually try the lightboost 2 trick(?), do I need any special cables or anything to use the monitor at this capacity? I only have one hdmi cable hooked into my current 60hz 24" 1920x1200 monitor (Gateway FHD2400). So I just wanted to order needed cables so they will arrive on time along with the monitor so I can hook it up straight away.

Thanks guys! Been following this thread since page 1.

The monitor comes with a Duallink DVI cable. So you should be able to hook that up and be fine.

If you want to run @144hz, HDMI won't do it, it's limited at 60hz. You'll have to use a duallink DVI cable or a displayport cable.

Thank you for the welcoming! Now is there a benefit to dualliink DVI vs displayport cable?

The biggest difference is that DP cables/connectors are much less bulky so they are nicer that way.

Also they can carry sound (like HDMI) for people who actually use their monitor speakers.

In general, displayport has many advantages over DVI.
But in your case, with this monitor and your gfx card, there should be no differences in terms of image quality between using duallink DVI or DP.
Also the vg248qe can play the sound that comes from the DP or HDMI input.

I'm just waiting for the input latency results. Let's hope it turns out like that 2411t. thumb.gif

That's a large question mark for me. Here are the signal lag (excluding pixel response) results from prad.de for various models tested.

1.5ms - BenQ RL2240H
1.9ms - BenQ RL2450HT
2.0ms - BenQ VW2430H
2.5ms - BenQ GW2750HM
3.4ms - Benq XL2420t 120hz
6.4ms - Benq XL2420t 60hz

2.3ms - Asus VG278h 120hz
3.3ms - Asus VG278h 60hz
5.1ms - Asus VG278he 144hz
6.5ms - Asus PA248Q
18.2ms - Asus VG278he 60hz

Their track record is patchy.

Yeah, if it ends up in the <3 ms region I'll be so happy. I'm stuck on a crt since my lcd has handicapping latency at competitive levels. I miss playing in widescreen... bruce.gif

Display Port is your best option. The only disadvantage is that you would need DVI-D if you ever intended to do a triple monitor setup. In the event that you wanted to do a triple montior setup, the 24 gauge DVI-D cables at Monoprice are the way to go.
post #259 of 2231
Anyone got the pixel response times of the monitors in that list or like entire lag time (average pixel response + input lag)?

Hmm first stop, Prad.de!
