Yep. Shorter backlight strobes (1.4ms) at 10% setting than at 100% setting (2.4ms strobes). This results in clearer motion during ultra-fast motion such as fast 180-degree flicks in FPS shooters. Vega says he can tell the difference in motion blur between the 10% setting and the 100% setting. Many people can't tell, though as everything already looks zero motion blur. I'm able to tell -- just about -- but only during very fast motion (e.g. strafing in front of a wall, fast 180 flicks, etc). It means the difference in PixPerAn readability score of 25 versus PixPerAn readability 30 -- your eyes can barely track that fast, even with your neck helping. Points of diminishing do occur!
The motion blur differences of all modes on the ASUS VG248QE and BENQ XL2411T which use the same 1ms panel:
60 Hz = baseline
120 Hz regular = 50% less motion blur than 60Hz
120 Hz LightBoost(100%) = 85% less motion blur than 60Hz
120 Hz LightBoost(10%) = 92% less motion blur than 60Hz
These are actual motion test results; confirmed by me (BENQ XL2411T) and Vega (XL2411T and VG248QE). You can also use PixPerAn to confirm these motion blur differences yourself too.Edited by mdrejhon - 2/7/13 at 11:07am
