Here's what my cursor looks like (iPhone camera was doing a poor job so had to bust out DSLR)... Monitor at 144Hz, 100 brightness and Normal OD, no ULMB; Camera at 1/250s shutter and 1000 ISO:
Here's a screenshot
photo from that testufo website:
As you can see, there's usually only 1-3 frames being displayed at a time, usually the current frame plus a faint ghost of the previous frame. Sometimes the photos capture the next frame starting to appear, which would give 3 total frames showing. Also, some color transitions have some bad inverse ghosting (see middle UFO) so you can see multiple frames of inverse ghosts.
What monitor were you using prior to the XB271HU? I'm just wondering if you are noticing ghosting, or if it's all motion blur? If you were using something like a CRT before this, you may just be really sensitive to motion blur...? How many frames are you seeing at once on your monitor? When I drag my mouse cursor in fast circles over a black screen, it visually appears to be like 20 cursors showing at once, but when I take a picture with the camera at high shutter speed, I only see 2 cursors (maybe a very faint third).
What if you turn on ULMB mode on your monitor (have to disable G-Sync), run at 120Hz, and view this test page with a scrolling google map
? You should be able to read everything very clearly. If you turn off ULMB on the monitor, it becomes a blurry mess.
If ULMB looks great to you in games and in that test screen, then you may just be extra sensitive to motion blur.Edited by nefrusy - 6/13/16 at 8:31pm
