LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 102

post #1011 of 2929
k so how am i suppsed to go about tricking my monitor into using lightboost with an amd card? i can enable it with my 9400 but i cant get it to stay.
post #1012 of 2929
Once it's enabled once (without the monitor being unplugged), all you have to do is import the lightboost.bin file into CRU 1.0, to force the three lightboost resolutions, on the AMD card. Then it will work until the monitor is unplugged (powering off with the power button isn't the same as an unplug).

I posted the cru attachment with the bin file as a zip earlier, but it's available elsewhere, too.

i tried that but... ok here are some more details


i tried it first by using the NV GPU in PCI 1, amd disconnected.
i was able to get lightboost working

as soon as i powered down and installed the AMD card, lightboost was disabled (did not unplug monitor)
i tried doing it with the NV GPU in the 2nd pci and the amd on the first pci, display attached to the AMD.

does not allow me to open NVIDIA controll panel nor enable lightboost.

i can enable 3d when plugging the monitor into the nvidia card (2nd pci) but not lightboost.


with 2 monitors (one on AMD, one on NVIDIA) i can not enable 3d or lightboost unless the 144hz monitor is on the nvidia card.

i did that too. it just forgets about lightboost as soon as the dvi plug is disconnected from the NVIDIA GPU


i want to figure this out soo bad! i feel as if im missing out by not having it for gaming.
post #1016 of 2929
Does no one have any input for me?

ive attempted both meathods of hacking lightboost but with partial/no sucssess.

i have a radeon 7850 as my main gpu
i have a gt 9400 at my disposal for hacking purpouses
2 PCIE lanes, x16, x4
monitor 1 (main) asus vg248qe 144hz((connected via dvi-D)); monitor 2 (second) vga 60hz dell low res . ((dvi->vga adapter used))

what driver versions do people use to enable lightboost for AMD?
IS IT EVEN ACTUALY POSSIBLE? Ive only heared here that it can be done, but there are no guides anywhere that i can find giving step by step directions for AMD users.

I just did it on my surround setup, so yes it's possible. My advice is to start COMPLETELY over. I'd also just remove the ATI card completely and start from there. Disconnect your 2nd monitor and follow the Toasty/Cru method word for word and see if you can get it working.

WHEN you get it working on the nvidia card uninstall that card and plop in the ATI card. Use CRU to set everything up again and your monitor should remember that it's 3D enabled once set to the correct resolution.

And don't be afraid to reboot... I think I rebooted every time I made a change in CRU.

Just check, when you have the Nvidia installed try rebooting and see if lightboost sticks.

That's how you can ensure you have it set up correctly in the first place before messing about with ATI cards or switching or anything.

as i said before i was able to get it working just fine but only as long as the nvidia card is in the first pci.
When i try to remove the video card the lightboost tab on my monitor OSD is grey and i cant enable it.

i can try again later and see if i can get it working by chance... but im unsure that the result will be any different.
post #1020 of 2929
Ok so i found out my problem was that when i set it up then installed my amd card, CRU was creating a new resolution/monitor profile so i had to import the lightboost.bin file 2x and also edit the product ID 2x.

i chose 100hz by the way

new problem.

using pixperan as a test, i first noticed i was only getting 50 fps. it looked like poo.

i rebooted, started it again and it was 100fps as proper. splendid, it looks great smile.gif
i launch crysis 3 to see how it looks in game. Somehow im taking a performance hit. With all low settings i can easily get 110 fps, but i was only reaching 45 max!

i shut down the game and launched pixperan again, it was again capping at 50 fps..


((Edit, how very odd))

Turns out my GPU is suddenly operating at half capacity a few minutes after boot ups.
im also getting tiny scattering red pixels across my screen
