I wouldn't get a plain 120hz TN monitor over a 60hz IPS or VA one, but lightboost and G-Sync are a big deal.

On a side note, MadVR is far superior to SVP tongue.gif

Lightboost is only night and day in fps games that can keep up the frames, and in blurbusters tests. Other than that, I don't really care for lightboost, and I haven't even really used it since I've had this monitor. G-sync, however, has great potential for rigs that can't keep up the frames, which is basically the majority of the rigs out there. For those who can keep a framelimit to the refresh rate of their monitor or higher, then G-Sync's value rapidly diminishes.

I don't see how MadVR is "far superior" when you can use them together...

MadVR does the same thing, but also uses a better renderer. tongue.gif I think you're right about lightboost/g-sync.


Ya, ToastyX made a program called strobelight that works on AMD cards. G-Sync is still Nvidia only.

1440p on 27" is bull****. its just a bigger screen... lol.
1440p on 24" would be nice.
Just go for a nice 120hz screen and you'll be fine. IPS and 1440p is overrated.

MadVR and SVP are separate and can be used together.

MadVR is the video renderer, and SVP creates motion-interpolated frames. In the end, MadVR renders the extra frames that SVP produces.

I guess you can check out my thread if you already haven't, as that should clear up some stuff for you.
