It does not support GSYNC.

However, you can run any single refresh rate from 60Hz through 144Hz with strobing. The utility now enables 60Hz strobing. There is, however, much less strobe crosstalk at lower refresh rates, so I highly recommend 120Hz or less.

Once the utility is released, we will find out exactly how much of the BENQ monitors supports the operation of this utility.

Also how are the colors on the benq xl 2420z monitor? Can I get them looking very good after using a profile for lightboost and regular 144hz?

I would like a comparison between asus VG278HE monitor and 2420z for colors in lightboost, 144hz mode, and input lag with lightboost on and off.

You wouldn't get double image with stroberate = refresh rate, like if you had 120/120 now

man hardware vendors sure are taking their time with releasing G Sync monitors. More time to save money for them and/or an nvidia card I guess.

There's no double image effect at framerate == refreshrate == stroberate.

You get a double image effect when the stroberate is twice the frame rate.
You get a triple image effect when the stroberate is three times the frame rate.
etc.

Flicker at 60Hz is always a problem, however, it is available (it's there anyway there as a user option). Many people have asked for it anyway, and it's a user choice now. You will need the Blur Busters Strobe Utility in order to enable the 60Hz strobe capability.

The strobe timing issue is fixable via the new Blur Busters Strobe Utility (released later in March). The Strobe Utility turn it from "worse than LightBoost" (strobe crosstalk, nonadjustable) to "better than LightBoost" (fix strobe crosstalk, huge range of persistence adjustment). This utility will only work on newer-firmware monitors.

As of March 5th, BENQ USA is working with Blur Busters for a solution to people who want units to be guaranteed compatible with Blur Busters Strobe Utility. Announcement forthcoming (likely sometime after Blur Busters Strobe Utility release).

This is good news. I am very happy to hear this.

Is there any way to view these kinds of motion tests outside of a web browser? I view testufo stuff all of the time, but i have to do an awkward shuffle of restart system, close stuff, change windows theme, disable secondary screen, switch browser etcetc just to get it to function ^.^

Let me add my vote for a standalone UFO test.

Also +rep for mdrejhon for providing the community with comprehensive and right on spot information on display technologies and helping the cause of accurate motion portrayal.
