LightBoost, G-SYNC, Turbo240: 120Hz Strobe Backlight LCDs / No Motion Blur! - Page 80

cool, will try soon
post #792 of 2929
I just used the new CRU lightboost hack to enable 2D lightboost on both of my monitors. But now, when I want to launch a game in Stereoscopic 3D mode, I get an error message stating something about trying to launch 3D Vision in an unsupported resolution. I also tried the .reg file before the CRU fix, but the .reg only worked for my main display. I have not reset the reg back. Does this have something to do with that? Perhaps the windowed mode setting to 0x000005?

Hmm I'm not sure those resolutions have been tested in 3D mode, see what others have to say though.

I had been looking for a monitor to replace my aging Samsung P2770HD. Until I saw this thread I was looking for a 27-30" IPS panel, potentially 1600p. However after looking into this, I decided to try it and I bought the newly released BenQ XL2720T. These are my impressions after one evening with the monitor and Lightboost enabled in 2D. If you're interested about my thoughts on the monitor itself, I'll post about that in the respective thread.

Before I start: the machine I am using this monitor with is used for recreational purposes. I do very little "work" on it other than the occasional wordsmithing, image editing, and web browsing. I mostly game on this system.

I had calibrated the monitor without Lightboost at first since I thought the factory calibration was highly suspect. I always prefer to do my calibration settings in the nVidia panel so I did that (sidenote: would be nice if we could create multiple color calibration profiles in nVidia control panel!). I followed the instructions provided in the OP to enable Lightboost without many issues. I couldn't install the driver by right-clicking so I had to browse to it during the installation process. Also after the registry hack I had to reboot twice. Finally I was able to operate with Lightboost in 2D.

I thought the monitor was too bright without Lightboost, so when Lightboost came on and it was dimmer I actually liked it. However, I immediately noticed that my calibration was off so I had to scrap the work I had done. There was a slight case of the "crimson tint" so I tuned the monitor OSD contrast setting (~60) and Lightboost setting (~50%) first, then in the nVidia control panel color calibration settings the red channel first, then tuning all color channels. If you're interested in my color calibration settings I can provide those values as well.

Anyway once I got the colors to a temperature I liked, and the brightness was just right for me, I started doing things like wiggling the mouse around and moving windows across my screen. I could tell a difference already. Then I fired up Dota 2.

One word: amazing.

It's so smooth for a LED it's almost weird. I have just never experienced anything like it and CRTs are a distant memory to me - to be honest I have no strong connection to CRTs. It's simply the smoothest gaming experience I've ever had. I am very happy with the purchase and it fills my needs perfectly. Even though an IPS panel may provide me with a better static image (something I'd enjoy on my work computer), for this machine's purpose the Lightboost display is exactly what I wanted - the clearest picture possible when motion is involved.

I had no idea that monitor existed xD

Would love to compare the XL2720T to my XL2411T, I used to have the 27" VG278H and VG278HE and I do prefer 27" over 24", but those two monitors had noticeably worse lightboost clarity compared to the super-smooth 1ms panel used in my current XL2411T. I'm hoping the 1ms panel in the new 2720t will be as awesome as my 2411t

Damn it's twice the price though.

Epic, it's more than just "legit"--its' the REAL thing.

And I was one of those CRT holdovers who refusd to ever let go of my Dell P1130 (after previous CRT's I had broke). And EXCEPT for some 60 hz emulators (that can't be used with the MAME strobe compile for 0.148), I would never need a CRT again.

You still won't (besides the aforementioned mame) be able to run 60 fps @ 60hz smooth(since lightboost doesn't work there), but you can even remove the 60 hz refresh rates from windows totally with CRU so you no longer have to worry about DX10 crysis running at 60 hz!

I don't have a XL2411T to compare to but according to the BenQ spec sheet for the XL2420T, they are somewhat similar. 1ms response time, but slightly lower brightness (I think, I can't check right now).

with lb now on, black looks like brown/gray gulash wth.gif any tips to get the colors better?
post #799 of 2929
I just got 3x ASUS VG248QE to compliment my GTX Titan SLI. Im only running two of them right now since the provided DVI cable is too short. Hurrah for Amazon Prime one day shipping. After tweeking the settings per pcmonitors.info's information, the colors are much better than my old Acer S232hl. Now to the lightboost hack:

I used the CRU program to make the custom resolution on both my monitors, but it only worked for my middle (main) monitor. Me secondary monitor was set to 120hz, but lightboost was not enabled. Ill try again once I get my longer DVI cable and enable surround.

Is lighboost supposed to be so much dimmer than 100% brightness, no lightboost? Plus the colors really blow.

I crank up nvidia digital vibrance to 80% to fix the dull colors.
