Yes it does Skupp, and it works like this:
The LED backlight is briefly flashed only once per refresh cycle. Besides other benefits, this helps alleviating motion blur.
The backlight flashes occur at the end of each refresh cycle, thereby hiding the settling of the pixels (as characterized by the LCD's response time) in the dark.
The backlight luminance (LED current) is higher than normal. This helps to compensate for the shortness of the backlight flashes.
The updating of the screen (i.e., writing new pixel values) is accelerated so as to leave the pixels more time to settle before the backlight is flashed.
The pixel settling is accelerated by use of overdrive techniques. The amount of overdrive is carefully adjusted to the vertical pixel position in order to compensate for the different settling times available for different pixel lines.
"For those who are asking about it:
G-Sync looks better for fluctuating frame rates.
LightBoost looks better for 120fps@120Hz locked.
They both have their pros and cons.
– LightBoost is greatly hurt by stutters. Excellent motion clarity makes it much easier to see stutters at much higher framerates. So fluctuating framerates can look very jittery with LightBoost. LightBoost always looks better with locked framerates (120fps @ 120Hz VSYNC ON, or 100fps @ 100Hz VSYNC ON)
– G-Sync is bottlenecked by 6.9ms of motion blur due to the 144fps sample-and-hold effect (explanation), so you’ll always get a minimum of about 7 pixels of motion blurring during 1000 pixels/sec motion. LightBoost has about 1.4ms of persistence, so you see less than 2 pixels of motion blurring during 1000 pixels/sec.
(1ms of persistence = 1 pixel of motion blur during 1000 pixels/sec)." Mark RejhonHANDY UTILITY FOR LIGHTBOOST
