LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 76

post #751 of 2929
I was giving this a go earlier but failed on my XL2410T monitor so figured I ask if I did something wrong or it just doesn't work.

All the steps go through fine, updating the registry entry and changing the monitor INF file, after reboot etc etc I can change to 3D. However, this is where the problem starts - I never get 3D clocks from cards afterwards and of course it's jerky as hell. Even when I saw low 3D clocks briefly the cards were not utilised (this being the likely cause the clocks never ramped up).

Since removing this the clocks are back to normal so all I can assume is that it doesn't work on my monitor?

AFAIK, the XL2410T is a 3D Vision 1 monitor and does not support Lightboost, am I right?

This probably can't be done if I'm just using the monitor for my 360, right? Since it appears the functionality is from the strobe effect, how could I hard-wire it to produce the same effect?

Also, does the strobe effect affect vision after a long time, or perhaps reduce the lifespan of the display?

I did a quick search of this thread regarding consoles, but it doesn't look like it has come up.

The lighboost was done at 30. Tell me if Im wrong but can't you tell which one is clearer. I know everyone has said that a video can't show the real results because it depends on the setup you are watching it from. But it looks pretty obvious to me. I even switch bacxk to 60 hz and watched the videos on youtube and could tell a difference. Am I crazy or no? Just want to do my part to show people the improvement in motion blur we all see since Im not able to participate as in depth as Mark and Vega thumb.gif

144 hz non LB http://youtu.be/amEfh4InJAI
120 hz non Lb http://youtu.be/1KObCyOiqyI
120 LB http://youtu.be/qUA9RxrN4B4

Here is a shot of the 60hz goin at 15 in pixperan.

Yes AFAIK that's right but according to some they got it to work so figured I ask either way. I've now tried both methods (the 2nd method few pages back) and again the same problem, once it starts trying 3D, the clocks just go down as the cards are not utilised. I don't use 3D normally so have no idea if that's "normal" but I doubt it.

Will keep an eye out and see if any other 2410 owners have feedback.

Our monitors don't have light boost in them, it isn't software so you can't "enable" it. You need a new monitor for it.

Cool; thanks for doing this. I should note that for a more apples-to-apples comparision in motion blur trail measurements (for motion blur for same speed motion), 60 Hz needs to have twice the tempo of 120 Hz to keep the same pixels per second motion. PixPerAn was made back in year 2001, and it wasn't designed to maintain the same relative motion speed independently of the refresh rate -- so the same tempo setting at double refresh rate, goes at double speed.

Finally got this working on my VG278 and holy *****! It's unbelievable! Definitely worth it coming from 1600p.
post #760 of 2929
I've gone through the Samsung HowTo. It says that a game needs to run at a constant 120FPS to take advantage of this feature. Is this true? Or am I missing something here?

maintaining constant 60FPS on a 1080p monitor is near impossible for most systems. and 120 is a daydream.

so would this benefit systems with 120Hz monitors running at 50-60FPS in game?

Thanks! smile.gif
