Another trick I found is increasing brightness in the game itself

I have no issues with brightness on minimum strobe length, the max strobe length is significantly higher brightness than what i use 24/7 iirc

Right so, after a very long time of looking at G-sync monitors, I've decided that it's just not worth it for me right now. The ridiculous prices some companies are charging for this little piece of hardware is insane for the panel itself. I do want to get a 144hz monitor with my new GTX 970 that I'll be getting next week though. It's used for both competitive gaming (SC2 & CS:GO) and some on-the-side gaming of single player RPGs aswell like The Witcher, the Batman games, etcetera.

I'm pretty new to everything and luckily I've had the privilege of Cyro here explaining some stuff to me. I suppose I have to choose between the newer models from Acer, the Acer GN246HLBid, Asus VG248QE, and the XL2411T from BenQ. Now BenQ has their marketed ''Blur Reduction'' while both Acer and ASUS use Lightboost. Which is most foulproof and best for the price? The Aceris a bit cheaper so I'm assuming slightly worse build quality as well, but I'm not sure if any of these monitors have a significant edge of any of the others? If so, please tell me! biggrin.gif Monitors in Europe are quite overpriced, they charge the same in EUR as they do in USD. =( ~€290 for both BenQ and ASUS, while I get asked €250 for the Acer model.


Thanks in advance! biggrin.gif

Nvidia said they will be compatible with adaptive-sync, so I'd wait begining of next year to see new monitors.

Which will be compatible? I thought most any monitors would be?

We don't clearly know yet.

Only a fraction of ones shipped -after- the scaler standard is made will support it. No monitors before that time will. Also, it might not get instant or widespread support, because AMD have said IIRC that they will only support it on certain GPU's

Nvidia France said they have no plan (yet ?) to support adaptive-sync.
We'll have to wait to know what will finally happen...

So, I finally got my BenQ XL2411Z. I've got it for general purpose, but obviously mostly for gaming (RTS & games like CS:GO).

I wanted to try the Blur Reduction so I downloaded the Blurbuster's tool, set the persistence to ~3MS because it's a bit too dark for me otherwise, while the crosstalk is at the minimum.

I have a problem though; I barely notice it! When scrolling through text and focusing on one word I do, and it's pretty convenient, but it's not as earth shattering as thought the blur reduction/lightboost would be and I've yet to play a couple of competitive CS:Go matches, but am I maybe doing something wrong, or is it not a big deal at all? Where should I be looking to see optimal ''difference''?

Yes, the game is running at a solid 144hz/144fps. smile.gif

Edit: I was thinking the AMA setting had something to do with it?

You should use the CRU.exe edit to set the 100hz and 120hz 1920x1080 settings to a vertical total of 1500. 1350 VT shouldn't require the pixel clock patcher by ToastyX, but 1500 definitely well (the highest VT you can use is 1502, but using 1502 instead of 1500 (no visual difference anyway) can cause very very slight banding, as 1503 goes out of signal. As Chief said, using a 1500 VT gives a larger blanking interveral so the GtG transitions finish sooner, and that cuts down the size of the strobe crosstalk band (that can be very annoying if you don't use it).

That tweak doesn't work at 144 hz.

Also, never change AMA if Blur reduction is on; changing AMA after BBR is already enabled overrides the BBR custom AMA settings and can look very bad. Just keep it at high.

Also, the monitor has lightboost as well but that has to be unlocked with the 3d vision drivers; strobelight doesn't work.
VT 1149 for 120hz and VT 1138 for 100hz.
