120 Hz

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
So I was wondering when I will be able to buy a Stock IPS monitor with over 1080p (2560*1440/1600) at 120 Hz? Itès been years I can't believe there is none yet.

For stock 120Hz on a panel that's better than TN -- why not get the new 39" SEIKI 4K HDTV -- it costs only $699:

It officially supports 1080p at 120Hz.

Stock? No idea when that will happen.

It's easier to just buy Korean and overclock it yourself for $300.

If a name brand started selling a stock IPS that was pre-overclocked to120Hz it would be close to $1k. Have fun with that.

Since that is a TV does that mean more input lag and/or response time? How does it compare to IPS lag/time?

All the 50-inch SEIKI 4K users that switched to 1920x1080p at 120Hz have mentioned that it reduces input lag quite a bit.

Also, users who successfully followed HDTV Refresh Rate Overclocking HOWTO: True 120Hz from PC to TV have noticed the reduction in input lag by running at 120Hz instead of 60Hz.

So whatever the 60Hz input lag, it reduces anyway at 120Hz. Now, certain TV's have less than one frame of input lag if you disable things and use Game Mode, competitive with certain computer monitors. Not many of them though.

Anyway, if you want stock 120Hz IPS, a few manufacturers have started advertising 120Hz input capability (e.g. SEIKI just mentioned official 120Hz 1080p support it in their 39" press releases). So this is a new "stock 120Hz" development coming from left field.

The whole thread was about 120 Hz OVER 1080p. 39 is just way too big also even if it's 4k.

Well, this thread did ask about Stock IPS.

Unfortunately, stock 120Hz non-TN is only available in TV's at the moment.
And I'm talking about true 120Hz input capability, not interpolated/fake 120Hz.

Hopefully this changes soon, though!
