G-Sync and LightBoost have different benefits.

G-Sync == better for variable framerate content, but has more motion blur
LightBoost == better for constant perfect 120fps@120Hz, (stutters with variable framerates)

The ideal scenario would be to combine Strobing + G-Sync.
G-Sync monitors includes a strobe mode, but it's an "either-or" proposition.

The "superior" strobe mode probably means:
-- Officially sanctioned. Optimized for 2D, rather than as 3D secondary feature
-- Fixing LightBoost colors/gamma bleaching
-- Permitting shorter strobe lengths (e.g. 0.5ms)
-- Easy nVidia Control Panel operation of strobing
-- Easy surround

(alas, for ToastyX -- making Strobelight potentially obsolete/unnecessary, though ToastyX probably could update it to allow hotkey operation of strobing -- giving it continued use as a hotkey enhancement. I don't think G-Sync can work with Radeon's)

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.
LightBoost works on DVI and DP.

I want to say THANKS ! to you mredrejhon and to Toasty - you guys are making LB setup intelligible to us all, and you all continue to keep us informed of LB's development and use. thumb.gif

Big effort on your parts - we all wouldn't be here without ya, and don't forget to say thanks to CallSignVega thumb.gif

carmack was talkin about wanting to do both at the same time, ithink. maybe i missunderstood but it sounded like he thinks it is doable. I wish somehow 3d could be as smooth as 2d lightboost :/
post #1615 of 2929
Just wanted to say thank you.

Setup was a breeze with the ToastyX installer and LB works real well on my BenQ XL2420TE / Radeon R9 280x. No more eyestrain in fast paced Darkfall combat. I can visually keep up with targets much better now than before.

You're welcome!

Welcome to the world of motion blur/artifact eyestrain, sometimes a bigger evil than strobe/PWM eyestrain (for some of us, like me and CallSignVega), which motion blur optimized strobing fixes.

(Some people get PWM eyestrain, CRT eyestrain, but others also get motion blur/motion artifact eyestrain.)

On other news new Whql release driver today.Still Bugged Surround Lightboost as 331.40 Nvidia is starting to really piss me off with their drivers.

I think it's going to require at least a one or two more driver cycles. They took that long to fix the 4K 2-monitor-surround issue.
post #1619 of 2929
Has anyone tried running these bad boys in surround or single screen with Lightboost?

- Overlord Tempest X270OC.

http://overlordcomputer.com/collections/27-displays

I'm just wondering how they would perform? And which GPU's would be required to run a triple monitor set-up???

X270OC's do not have LightBoost.
Overclockable 1440p's have about six times more motion blur than LightBoost displays.
See Photos: 60Hz vs 120Hz vs LightBoost.

For a list of which monitors has LightBoost, see List of 120Hz monitors.
