Asus VG248QE 144hz 1ms TN 1080p - Page 61

post #601 of 2231
So..Great monitor. Im no expert, but it does look pretty good to me. Just sort of set it up and plugged and played.. I don't have 3D gear, (yet) , so just played in 2D and it is a huge diff from 60hz..awesome. Just not sure if its setup as well as it could be. Any tips?

I have a GTX 680, i5 and according to fraps I get about an average FPS of 60ish on Ultra in say, BF3.
What settings do you turn off ingame when running at 144hz, no LB? Motion Blur? Whats that meant to be? On or off? V sync? Do I touch the GPU settings?

Know any good sites? Very new to 120 hz gaming and loving it.
Thanks in advance.

I have the 27" vg278he version and I use light boost for black ops 2 and max payne 3. For BF3 I wouldn't use it unless you're willing to turn down graphics and try to get at least 100 fps. If you can't keep steady 120 fps when you use lightboost you get this crazy ghosting effect. I've tried with 60 fps and lightboost and didn't like it. But on games where you can keep close to or steady 120 fps it's so much better than without lightboost.

Hopefully they figure out how to get the same lightboost to work with lower refresh rates. to keep the sharpness and clarity.

Try these in game settings for bf3

All quality settings on low except mesh. Put mesh on high

Aa deferred 2x

You'll lose some eye candy, but you'll be too busy counting the dead bodies to notice.

Actually mesh is one of the settings in BF3 that highly stresses the CPU. This could limit the high data rate the CPU needs to send the GPU for 120+ FPS.

With a 680 you can bump up some other settings if you want to though. I can't even tell the difference between low and high (other than the less smoothness on high) unless I stop and look for it.

Yeah, first thing I did today after looking at my monitor was turn the brightness down to 25. Any lower then this and the monitor starts gaining a pinkish hue, which was the weird 'glow' I was talking about. Even at 25 I can tell there is a pinkish tint to it. The colors were really set up for higher brightness levels and you need about 60 to get good colors out of this thing. That is also eye scorching and I can't tolerate that. It doesn't help that the AG coating on this thing throws off colors depending on the angle you look at it. The colors on the bottom of my monitor are different from the top. Moving my head up and down changes it. It really throws you off.

So using standard mode.
Brightness: 25
Contrast: 60
Color temps: R 90 / G 100 / B 94
Smartview: off
Tracefree: 40 (although I may mess with this)

My display driver has it set to 6500k for color temperature.

The problem with using the windows calibration tool is it's all subjective. Simply using the tool wont automatically set your monitor for the proper colors. When it tells you to find the best shade of gray and shows you the proper version of it on a uncalibrated monitor doesn't work out very well. I really don't want to drop the 100 on a Spyder, that's why I was hoping someone with a Spyder could calibrate their monitor using it and then share the settings with all of us.

The brightness and contrast tools were helpful though.

It doesn't seem to affect newer cpus as much. At 1080p with an I5/I7 and say a gtx 560ti, there shouldn't be more than a 2-3 fps hit when going from low to high on mesh quality. I've found it to be a fair trade off between fps loss and being able to spot an enemy at long distance.

What exactly does the "mesh" affect? I really don't see a difference in any setting. I play at mostly Medium settings and I get 100+ fps. Still looking for the sweet spot though but this will do.
