Samsung 4K 1ms monitor $754 it has begun - Page 122

Just so you're aware, the Samsung is also flicker free as long as brightness is kept above 30.

Thanks, and yes I will keep the brightness over 30, probably around 34, so that is good to know that it's also flicker free!

I actually also really like the joystick control which makes it very easy to change the brightness, unlike other monitors with those awkward multiple buttons behind the panel.

Yeah the joystick (or 'JOG button' as Samsung refers to it) is very intuitive. I really like it as well.

So I jumped on the Samsung 4k monitor to mostly play at 1080p until my hardware catches up. Found some interesting things.
Taking DOTA 2 as an example, if I set the nVidia settings to scale via display, the image becomes a lot brighter. This ONLY happens for 1080p. If I set the scale to GPU, the brightness stays the same as all other resolutions.

I'm not good at explaining things so I'll try summarize below:

nVidia 'Display' Setting scaling:
1080p - Bright
1440p - Same as GPU scaling setting
4k - Same as GPU scaling setting

nVidia 'GPU' Setting Scaling:
1080p - Dark
1440p - Same as Display scaling setting
4k - Same as Display scaling setting

It seems to be that Samsung have some type of weird scaling algorithm for only 1080p and no other res below or above and between. It's quite annoying.

I have to admit that playing games at 1440p looks fantastic and doesn't pixelate or blur ANY image. I think I will be using 1440p over 1080p for games as it looks identical to my other PB278Q at 1440p. I am really impressed by this.

1440p > 1080p lol

Yeah I noticed the same thing at 1080p, been playing bf4 at 1080p while I wait on my evga 6gb 780s to get here. It's almost like a fog on the map, something is off about it but native looks great. Soon enough it won't matter wink.gif

Edit, even 1440p looks a bit off to me. For example, if I try to play bf4 at 1440p in game with my desktop set native 2160p; I get some serious problems, textures not loading in. Not sure what to make of that but it's even worse if I do 1080p in the same way. Tho each will work fine on their own as long as desktop and ingame resolution match, then again it could be my 670s being weird.

So I dropped by my local Best Buy yesterday to look at some clearance and open box items cause they're on sale to the 31st, and low and behold they have the U28D590D on display and a few in-stock. So I picked one up. Compared to my X-Star the colors are definitely not as good out of the box. I only have it connected using HDMI, they don't carry mDP to DP which I need for my videocard. One thing I noticed though is via HDMI you can choose to display 0-255 (normal) color or 16-235 (low) color so that's interesting. I set it to 0-255 and messed with the settings until I got it looking pretty close to my IPS. Still though blacks are not very good at all. (on 16-235 blacks are better but overall color depth suffers) I seem to have a good bit of backlight bleed too, more than my X-Star but that's a PLS so that's expected I guess. Oh and 30Hz is hella crappy coming from 120Hz ! Can't wait for me DP cable I'm getting today from Newegg Will-Call.

Tried to reproduce this, didn't notice anything whacky. Possibly driver issue with older gen cards? (Running 780's right now).

Sounds like a graphics card driver problem to me.

A possibility for sure, my 780s will be here today an I'll be using the newest drivers released yesterday; so we'll see what happens.
