LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 161

post #1601 of 2929
When I run the strobelight-setup.exe, I have two 120hz settings. What is the difference between 120hz (strobed) and the 121hz? Which is better for gaming? Or should I be using 144hz with my BenQ?

Strobed is usually better, but it is a matter of personal preference.

View motion test, such as www.testufo.com/photo, while trying out all the different modes. Of all the modes, the strobed modes (120Hz LightBoost) will have far less motion blur. It is good if you are able to sustain triple-digit frame rates, at a tradeoff between motion clarity and color quality.

Cool, I will go with the strobe one then. Thank you!

I guess another question is, doing the fix the old way, which did it do by default?

120Hz strobed. (or 100Hz strobed if you were running 100Hz).

Just to be clear, ToastyX Strobelight:
LightBoost = modes with "strobed" (LightBoost enabled)
regular = modes without "strobed" (LightBoost disabled)

I know that it's probably too early to tell, but I'm wondering what effect Lightboost will have with Nvidia's new G-Sync technology? Will they be compatible or not? And will the Lightboost effect be enhanced or decreased with G-Sync? Hopefully they will be compatible and maybe even offer further enhancements to the blur-less magic??? wink.gifsmile.gifwink.gif

Seems like G-SYNC is Lightboost 2.0!

Very interesting read, thanks for the link. I guess I shoulda looked on the 'Oracle' first before posting? thumb.gif

Oh well always a conversation starter LOL ..........................................................................................

Please don't get confused by what he is saying. Currently, you cannot have G-Sync and Lightboost active at the same time. There is no way to do a variable strobe rate. NVIDIA said they are working on it.

Let's all hope that when Nvidia releases G-Sync, it will have few glitches and hopefully either be as good, or better than Lightboost? With good strobe back lighting and zero motion blur ala ToastysX superb tool. It looks like the future of PC monitors will have more clarity!!! LOL wink.gif

Edit Update: I spotted this on another thread:-

"Originally Posted by copelandmaster

@AndyBNV

What does this mean for Lightboost monitors and specifically ToastyX implementation? How does G-Sync compare to Lightboost strobbing? Do they work together, like with 3D Vision?

The VG248QE is one of the top monitors in this category. However, Lightboost uses DVI for a connection, and last time I checked, Displayport does not support this feature.

AndyBNV Replied; We have a superior, low-persistence mode that should outperform that unofficial implementation, and importantly, it will be available on every G-SYNC monitor. Details will be available at a later date.@"
