One of the best ways to witness the difference that LightBoost makes is to turn ON/OFF LightBoost (via ToastyX Strobelight) while watching www.testufo.com/photo
It mainly benefits eye-tracking situations such as during fast panning/strafing/turning. LightBoost benefits are not really useful at anything less than triple-digit frame rates. So LightBoost is not worth it if you run at less than 100fps, or if you aren't wanting clarity during fast panning/strafing/turning.In a nutshell, you MUST do all three simultaneously:
- Test 120fps @ 120Hz, or frame rates near refresh rates.
- Test fast full screen motion (panning/strafing/turning) similar to www.testufo.com/photo
in a stutter free browser
- Make sure you have no mouse microstutters (use a good gaming mouse)
Otherwise, LightBoost can look worse than better. Lower frame rates such as 80fps doesn't look good with LightBoost since LightBoost is like a fixed-frequency CRT operating at 120Hz, and 80fp@120Hz doesn't look that good either on the CRT. Also, there are newer strobe technologies that look better than LightBoost, including ULMB, Turbo240 and BENQ Blur Reduction (Version 2).
So when briefly testing LightBoost, temporarily exit your recent game such as Crysis 3 and Battlefield 4, and temporarily load up an older game such as Counter Strike:GO or Quake Live, and you'll notice more LightBoost benefit, depending on how you play. Some people turn on LightBoost only for specific games, such as only for their older games.Edited by mdrejhon - 3/23/14 at 8:23am
