LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 2

post #11 of 2929
Sounds interesting, and very exciting if the effect is as described! I remember only noticing refreshrates under 85hz on CRTs, so 120hz should be no problemo.

Wonder if there's anything I can do with my S27A950D?! Hmm!

You need LightBoost2. Not the older LightBoost or older 3D Vision monitor.

P.S. Even LightBoost2 could use some technological improvement because LightBoost2 actually dims the picture in 2D mode. It was originally designed to boost brightness through 3D shutter glasses (via strobing the backlight only while shutters are open, avoiding wasting backlight when both shutters are closed waiting for LCD to refresh). It was not designed to brighten the 2D picture. Short strobes often lead to a dimmer picture. You really need very short strobes, with very bright & expensive LED's to compenate. Strobed backlights (LightBoost2) are mainly found in expensive monitors.

Fortunately, the picture is perfect brightness for my eyes when I adjust Brightness to 92, and I mainly game at night, so it's not a problem. (It might be a problem for sunny computer rooms during the day, though).

EDIT: I just realized that older 3D Vision does not have LightBoost. So there's no such thing as a "LightBoost 1". Only the 3D Vision 2 with LightBoost -- the one I've been calling LightBoost2 because it's good for 2D too.

Why not try manually changing the values?
It's a very small registry file (5 values), and you can easily undo it manually if nothing happens too.
Especially try the EnablePersistentStereoDesktop setting, at least. You can do this modification by hand, and undo by hand, too.

Is it safe to add these keys? "EnablePersistentStereoDesktop" and "StereoRefreshDefaultOn" aren't in that directory for me to edit. The others are there and are already set to those values.

Yes, it's safe to add those keys.
Note: If you are using Windows 8, you may get some strange login-screen redraw artifacts if you're using Windows 8. (start screen and login screen only). No problems at the Desktop. Appears to be a stereoscopic Windows desktop issue.

I really want to see this in person. This is amazing news.

On the other hand, LightBoost2 makes 2D dimmer. (The brightening effect is only seen through 3D glasses, it's simply timing the strobes only when shutters are open, surging an extra powerful light strobe through, and avoiding wasting backlight when both shutters are closed waiting for LCD to refresh between frames)

When using LightBoost2 in 2D mode, you really want the brightest possible backlight, so that LightBoost doesn't become too dim.
....so (drum roll), I hear the Benq backlight is famously known to be super bright...

I wonder if that's more important for LightBoost2 image quality?
Maybe someone can compare?
Get two, compare, and return one?

Hmmm tough deciding between those...I want an IPS version xD (not gonna happen...)
You raise some valid points, perhaps a compare is in order.smil3dbd4e4c2e742.gif
