Not 100% satisfied with XL2420T 144hz

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello

I've bought a XL2420T 144hz (EU version fo the XL2420TE I belive) coming from a Asus PB27Q.
Problem is, its just not as sharp and heads doesnt pop out as much as on the PB27Q, so i'm considering to buy a XL2720T or Asus 27" 120/144hz monitor.
Is there anything I can do settings wise to get sharper picture, more like a PB27Q really? Or is just the fact that 27" pixels is just bigger, so everything looks bigger and easier to aim at?

Thank you!

1440p vs 1080p ?
But 144Hz vs 60Hz and less ghosting, you dont consider it ?

No i'm playing CS:GO @ 4:3 1280x960, and obviously it will look smaller on a 24" compared to a 27" right?
But my problem is that it isent as clear picture quality, that its hard to see the contours of the head.
So I wonder if a BenQ XL2720T will be better duo to the fact that it might have bigger pixels?

The XL2720T probably will not help because scaling 1280x960 -> 1920x1080 won't look as good as scaling 1280x960 -> 2560x1440, because of scalers don't do good jobs of small scaling steps such as 960p->1080p, it causes a lot of softening. Upconversion operates best with a large difference in resolution. Also, for a motion fluidity upgrade, check out LightBoost too.

When CS:GO upgraded to 1.6, the advantage of using 4:3 resolution mostly disappeared for a lot of people, because of game engine changes, so consider using the native resolution.

SOLUTIONS
(if you want to stay 144Hz)

-- Use 1920x1080 in CS:GO. It will work much better. If your GPU is unable to play at 1920x1080, then upgrade your GPU. CS:GO doesn't need much of a GPU upgrade to run 1080p@144Hz.

-- If you must stay at a 4:3 resolution, try running 1440x1080 instead. Create this custom resolution via NVIDIA Custom Resolution (if using NVIDIA). That way, it can run at 1:1 pixel exact mapping, with zero scaling. Fixing your soft-pixels problem.

-- If you must keep 1280x960, then first disable GPU scaling (e.g. NVIDIA Control Panel, etc), and then configure your BENQ OSD Menu -> Display Mode -> 1:1 ... That will disable your scaling. You will get a little black bars above and below, as your 960 pixels snap to exactly 960 pixels.

1280 x 960 scaling much better with 2560 x 1440 resolution, because have matematically have a better divisor.

Why would you even want to game at such a low resolution!?!?!?

Because everything gets bigger/wider = easier to hit
