Quote:To achieve smoothness you need:
-a combination of high frame-rate and high refresh rate. (Most people consider 60fps@60Hz as the point where it start feeling "smooth")
-synchronization between frame and refresh either through V-sync or G-sync OR a frame rate significantly higher than the refresh rate (e.g. 300+fps @144Hz)
If these conditions are met and there are no other bottleneck (micro-stuttering, stuttering, ...), you'll get a smooth (fluid) experience.
Quote:CRT displays scan the image briefly on the screen. LCD display hold the image for the entire duration of the refresh cycle.
So you don't get that heavy eye-strain inducing flickering on an LCD @60Hz, unlike on a CRT.
Quote:If you're asking about image quality: this is up to the specifications of the monitor.
If you're asking about how the motion feels at 144Hz for desktop usage: It feels significantly smoother than at 60Hz. Just dragging windows around will feel a lot smoother.
Quote:Unlike TV's, computer displays don't have hardware frame interpolation. So you will be able to watch movies the way you are used to.
Hope this help. Don't hesitate to ask if you need more details on something. I tried to keep it short and not bore everyone with a huge wall of text.
