Yes, it does. Blur Busters does not test with AMD products with LightBoost, but ToastyX users say it works on AMD.

Keep in mind if you want the best LightBoost color, the better LightBoost color is typically on the 27" models. That said, the 24" models are cheaper. Don't forget to follow the color tweaking instructions to fix some of the LightBoost color problems.

I've always been more an AMD guy because of the lower prices but for my next build I will definitely get an nvidia GPU solely because of this.

I am going to need to try the benq 27" out since the lightboost hack on my Samsung monitor makes the screen way too dark and the contrast is really off no matter what I change.

It has been stated with the newest Toasty x utility amd is able to utilize lightboost. But yes please say thanks to Nvidia on your next build and Sli something nasty!!!

I've added an undocumented easter egg for you, if you don't mind editing the URL. You can do LBFI unofficially by adding a "&partial=25" to the end of the URL for TestUFO Black Frames Demo to insert a frame of 25% brightness. Change the number in the URL from between 0 to 100, for different percentages.

Demo of 25% LBFI
www.testufo.com/#test=blackframes&partial=25
The 25% LBFI doesn't seem to be too objectionable, it looks like a slight double-image, but I don't know how much it improves agreeability with LCD's with standard alternating inversion patterns...

Unfortunately Lightboost is the realm of 1080P. Unfortunately it look's to stay that way for a very long time. redface.gif

It is a bummer. A 1440p or 1600P 27" 120hz lightboost panel would be awesome but it would also cost an arm, leg and part of your spleen. That said I would still buy one since I do not need my spleen at the moment.

I have my 1440P screen for photo editing but I can not play FPS games on it. It would be great to have 3 of them for surround with flight sims or driving sims though.

So I picked this monitor up recently, upgrading from a Viewsonic VX2265wm. I can't help but notice the horizontal pixel lines being very distinguishable, not smoothly transitioning into each other. I can very clearly see some graininess to the horizontal lines drawn on the monitor. Things like the top of a maximized window don't look like a smooth color, but rather a series of lines of colored pixels with faint but very clearly noticeable discolored lines in between. It reminds me of the first time I noticed the grille lines on a high end CRT across the 1/3 and 2/3 horizontal lines of the screen, only instead of just being in two places at the monitor, they exist between EVERY horizontal pixel line.

Am I the only person who notices this? Is it a consequence of running it in Lightboost mode? Or just an attribute of this monitor? The 2265wm was a first gen 120Hz monitor and does not have great picture quality, color reproduction and is only 1680x1050, but it looks considerably better than this monitor for this reason. I just can't help but notice it.

Can someone please tell me if having an ASUS VG278H as the center monitor and two VG278HE's for the sides running in 24/7 2D lightboost will work in nvidia surround 5840x1080?

Hi guys. I currently have one VG278HE and after just coming from a ACER GD245HQ surround setup, I need my surround back again.. After using 5840X1080 for more than 6 months the difference is night and day.. I feel like I'm looking down a tunnel..

I know that the HE is 144 Hz and the H is 120. But if I only ever run them all in 2D lightboost I was thinking that shouldn't be an issue.. I was wanting to do it this way because I could then have a pair of 3d vision glasses (that come bundled with the H) to use when I felt like it.. The main issue I have with this combo is that with Nvidia 3d surround all monitors must be of the same Resolution, Frequency and Timing.
Thanks

(Sorry for double asking this question. I've asked it here and started a new thread. Just wanted it to be seen by the right people)
