LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 17

The best way to see the difference is to take the readability test in PixPerAn. On my Benq xl2420tx I'm only able to read until tempo 7 which looks very blurry, with light boost on it's very clear and easy to read at even higher tempos. wheee.gif I just wish there was a way to leave light boost on without the game going into 3D mode.

Same here on my vg278h.
120hz LB off = readability tempo 7
120hz LB on = readability tempo 30 (first 5 letters) to fast for my eyeball to move, but I could read it! thumb.gif

Just ordered a ASUS VG278HE to give this a try. I just hope I can get it all done on one GTX 680.

I've edited original XL2411T EDID and saved it to .inf file: changed only 4 values: "Manufacturer ID", "Model ID", "Serial number", "2nd description field"(Display Product Serial Number), "4th description field"(Display Product Name) to Asus VG278 values.
Now i have original XL2411T refresh rate timings, ability to set 144hz and ability to enable 3D in nvidia control panel at 100-120hz.
This .inf for XL2411T owners: http://ge.tt/api/1/files/6FMs6UU/0/blob?download mirror: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/17188606/monitor.inf
Also i found another trick to disable 120 fps capping when lightboost is ON. No any stuttering or tearing noticed.
1. Enable 3D (at refresh rate 120hz) via nvidia control panel.
2. Set refresh rate to 144hz via windows. Lightboost will be auto disabled.
3. Disable 3D via nvidia control panel.
4. Set refresh rate to 120hz via windows.
5. PROFIT
I hope someone will find trick to enable lightboost at 144hz. May be via DDC/CI/I2C.
Tested this all at benq XL2411T at win7 x64 with nvidia beta 310.70 and FIFA13 with FRAPS fps counter.

Hit Control+T while inside the game in order to disable 3D.

Though, some were able to configure their systems to launch the game in 2D mode without 3D, while leaving LightBoost behavior enabled.

Yeah, the "EnablePersistentStereoDesktop" registry dword. Keeps LB active even when 3D vision is disabled.

Has anyone here managed to run Diablo 3 on a LB monitor (or a CRT) at higher than 60hz properly ? (75, 85, 100, 120hz, all look bad for me, only 60hz has clear motion)
post #167 of 2929
Wow, how did I miss this thread?

Looking forward to your ASUS/BenQ comparison. At $100 less I'd much rather get the BenQ.

Thanks a lot, this made it 10x easier to use no more going back into nvidia control panel! thumb.gif

Also a funny thing I noticed the other day, every time my IR emitter is on it interferes with the signal from my digital cable box remote lol it's kind of weird.

I have been planning to upgrade to a 120hz monitor for a while now so im thinking of getting the BenQ XL2411T since it supports this. I'm curios of the usability, do I need to mess around with enabling this for each individual game each time I lauch, or can I have it enabled all the time or have it remember the settings for each game?

Considering I only have 570 what is it going to be like to use every day, I'm guessing I will struggle with higher end games and would have to disable. primary games i play are not so intensive anyway, CS:GO, LoL. Arma II occasionally being the most demanding.

You only have to enable it once. CS GO would look great with LB. Other newer games will need another 570 to take advantage of any 120hz monitor.
