Lightboost hack over Displayport?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Thinking of trying out a 120hz+ monitor and that the Asus vg248qe has displayport input - does the lightboost crt hack work over Displayport?

My qnix will be the one taking up the dl dvi connection as it will be my primary monitor

LightBoost works over any connection that supports 120Hz and VESA-DDC. So, yes, DisplayPort works.

Also, don't forget there's now an easy LightBoost utility (turn on/off LightBoost via a keypress), so you don't have to do the hacky methods anymore (e.g. registry edits)

Awesome - are there any downsides to DP over DL-DVI? Like increased input lag, or decreased image quality?

Theres a decent sale on the BenQ XL2420T for $260CDN, and i wanna compare it to my 1440p 120hz IPS, see if the color/viewing angle/resolution/size loss is worth clearer motion.

The input lag differences between ports are tiny (fractions of milliseconds) and there's no difference in image quality.

Give TestUFO a spin, and make sure you test the games capable of triple-digit framerates.

Great - ya my Matrix can push even newer games to 90fps @ 1440p (with some stuff turned off), so 1080p should be a lot easier - might have to turn off AA which could be brutal at that resolultion - but i'll see i guess heh

Some games (e.g. Borderlands 2) just literally demands AA. All those sharp boundaries and edges. The use of FXAA saves the day without killing the framerate too much.

Well picked up the XL240T, unfortunately it didnt come with a DP cable - but i lucked out in that i still had my old DP -> DL-DVI Active Adapter. It's rated up to 2650x1440p@60hz and it worked beautifully at 1080p@120hz

No added input lag compared to my QNIX which is nice.

Too bad the image quality looks pretty cruddy on this TN + Lightboost, going to need decent profiles
