Options for +60 Hz Korean Monitors

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
What are my options for a Korean monitor capable of more than 60 Hz? Just +60 Hz is what I'm interested in.

I'm aware of the 120 Hz Yamakasi Catleap 2B variant, but what other choices are there? They don't necessarily have to be capable of 120 Hz; any capable of 65, 70, 85, etc. all qualify.

Are other Catleaps capable of going slightly over 60 Hz? The Achieva club thread seems to state that they can go over 60 also.

There's so much reading out there that I figured it would be quicker to just ask.

Why does it have to be Korean? Budget?

I figured I'd mention my new ASUS monitor, I couldn't be more pleased with it and its backed by a major company.... although you pay for it lol tiredsmiley.gif

My brother got a random Korean monitor and says it can hit 66hz. Doesn't sound like much, but that is 10% at least.

A select set of Korean monitors are, at the moment, the only monitors that you can get (for less than $1000 at least) that can do 1440p @ 100+hz. The Catleap "2B" variant is the only one. There are no other 1440p monitors capable of going beyond 67hz true display rate at the moment.

Running the monitors at 66 hz is probably worse than running at 60 hz. The difference in "smoothness" is small, but you get increased judder with video. With a 60 hz refresh rate, at least 30 fps video and 60 fps video will render perfectly, and 24 fps video will render with the 3:2 pulldown, which smooths out the judder somewhat. 66 hz refresh rates do not sync with any video source, and you will experience dropped/repeated frames much more often with less regularity with any video you watch.

In other words, a monitor that can go above 60 hz, but not above 66hz, is mostly a novelty as far as overclocking is concerned. I would not consider these monitors to be "overclockable". That being said, most of the single-input korean monitors will take and display up to 66 hz.

I should have mentioned that I wanted more than 1080/1200p resolutions. As for my budget, I don't know. I'm just looking at my options.

I suppose I'll stick with the 60 Hz IPS monitors then. That opens up my options by a lot...
