[Official] The Qnix/X-Star 1440p Monitor Club - Page 268

post #2671 of 25893
So just asking, Has anyone tried leaving their Qnix at 60hz and instead tried supersampling/downsampling?

tried lcd reduced instead of standard and I achieved 120hz. I've not noticed any flickering, or red/green lines yet, but if it does happen in games what values do I edit and change to stop it from happening in cru?

Not the same thing.

The refresh rate (most commonly the "vertical refresh rate", "vertical scan rate" for CRTs) is the number of times in a second that a display hardware draws the data. This is distinct from the measure of frame rate in that the refresh rate includes the repeated drawing of identical frames, while frame rate measures how often a video source can feed an entire frame of new data to a display.

SSAA:
Quote:
Samples are taken at several instances inside the pixel (not just at the center as default) and an average color value is calculated. This is achieved by rendering the image at a much higher resolution than the one being displayed, then shrinking it to the desired size, using the extra pixels for calculation. The result is a downsampled image with smoother transitions from one line of pixels to another along the edges of objects.

I know exactly what i was asking and stand by the question. I am generally interested if anyone has tried jacking up the resolution instead of the refresh. This being the "club" forum and not the overclocking forum specifically for this monitor it is not out of topic either. Thank you for posting a clarification of what supersampling is so everyone who doesn't know that it is not the same thing now knows and might be able to try it and get back to those of us(assuming i am not the only person interested) who are wondering.

I mainly bring it up since i am trying it right now and can't seem to get the aspect retio to stick. It keeps panning the screen "off" screen rather than downsampling the image.

Question for you all. I have a matte qnix and my 560Ti no longer down clocks it's frequency at idle with the nvidia patch in test mode. Currently I'm sitting at 880Mhz, with no change in core frequency at idle and no OC software installed (like Afterburner). Anyone else experience this with the patched Nvidia drivers? Hope I can resolve this. I hate running my graphics at full blast when doing nothing. Btw, my monitor is oc'd to 103.

Well then you should have been more specific as above. The way you said "instead" threw me off. Others have confused the end result of downsampling with that of higher refresh rate in the past. Apologies for assuming you did too but no need to get so defensive.

No I have not tried supersampling in any games yet. What is it you are trying to see if you can achieve exactly? SSAA itself is just not acting right?

I wasn't getting defensive i was simply explaining myself. I am seeing if i can improve quality of course. downsampling can give us better quality all around and not just in games. I always did this with my older monitors and it gives a fake sense of a higher PPI then what the monitor really is. It is obviously not as good as having actual resolution but it does very much help. With the Qnix already being 2560x1440 and being able to overclock to double its own refresh having a pixel clock of 500mhz+ i was thinking you could really supersample it. Plus i have seen myself and read over many review it is better in many was than the sort of software aliasing we normally use in games. I can say for sure it works wonders with TVs.

It's cause all the extra bandwidth you are using to keep 100 plus frames.. Drop your monitor back to 60 and see if it goes back to idle..
