Looking For 1440p, 120Hz+ Monitor - Page 4

post #31 of 35
Well the Backlight strobing tech isn't related to gpu so I don't think any monitor vendor would lock it to a certain card manufacturer. However there are 3rd party software to enable it if the OSD option is disabled. You should dig further on this to be sure, but ulmb shouldn't be limited to a card manufacturer in general.

You are confusing strobe backlight technology in general with ULMB. Yes, you can get strobe backlight technology such as BenQ's 'Blur Reduction' that will work on either AMD or Nvidia GPUs. ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur) is a proprietary technology which is found only on monitors that have a G-SYNC module and as with G-SYNC it can only be activated on an Nvidia GPU.

Well ok, strobing should work though on AMD cards supposing he bought a Gsync monitor having an AMD gpu. Anyways, not to get all into this debate, he's not gonna buy a Gsync monitor with an AMD gpu, so no need to tackle this situation. Also, all strobing methods(ULMB, blur reduction...etc)should all work the same but some might require gamma compensation if not implemented in the monitor profile.

You can't activate ULMB if you have an AMD GPU. It doesn't matter what happens with other 'strobing methods', ULMB specifically is not a feature that AMD GPU users can take advantage of. And if the monitor only has ULMB and no alternative, then no strobe backlight mode for AMD users.

^ This, come on man it's NVIDIA we're talking about here. They're all about proprietary tech. NVIDIA ULMB is restricted to NVIDIA GPUs only, just like G-SYNC is restricted to NVIDIA GPUs only while if NVIDIA wanted to, they could make their GPUs support FreeSync.
