TN vs VA panel (vs IPS?) for gaming purpose

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hello, i bought Z35 whic has VA panel, 144 hz (up to 200), G-Sync and i tried today along brother's TN non g-sync screen monitor. Benq XL2420T
Both screen monitor with both these following settings (i just lowered Z35 luminosity at 40 instead of 80), Benq (luminosity at 30, gamma settings have been tweaked...)
Now i use a very fast fps to see which one seems to be faster/better for gaming
Those games could be a nightmare a for a slower screen monitor
Ok lets start the comparison
- Benq XL2420T has no blur, image is incredibly crisp very similar to what you get with ULMB
- On Z35, image is blurry as hell although its G-Sync on with 120 hertz + normal overdrive
- The response time and the input lag are also much better and you will notice on TN screen monitor
The only downside i ve get its tearing, its sightly noticeable but honestly you live with that overtime
Now i am convinced G-Sync and TN are best association and people who whine about their TN, faster is always better than slower screen monitor

Try with ULMB on the Z35, also what about colors/contrast : maybe try with these images: Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)

I tried ULMB, no blur but i have massive trailing/smearing/ghosting
Its just TN is faster at any circumstance
Now i would try the fastest IPS to make sure if they could compete along the fastest TN
For image comparison, TN provides surprisingly richer color and deeper black contrast while my Z35 looks a bit washed out

Try tweaking the OD to see if you get better results
For the colors, try taking a good reference screen (like smartphones or smth) and tweaking both the monitor OSD settings and the Nvidia Driver enhancements (digital vibrance, gamma,...) to get the same results (check with the pics i gave) then see how the screen does.

Yes i m using these settings from pcmonitor, except for gamma's one
Its so saturate, i really don't like it
I would know if someone who owns XB271HU/PG279Q ones of fastest IPS screen monitor, could compare them to a fast TN such as i did with Z35 vs Benq XL2420T

TFTCentral has several comparisons in each review if you're interested. The TN ROG Swift has the fastest response times and it gets edged out by the XB270HU and the IPS Swift in lag according to TFTC's testing.

Response time or input lag?
Which one does it count for being fast?
post #8 of 9
Both are relevant. Response times are related to blurring and input lag is processing time of the panel.
post #9 of 9
Response time wise, I'd say the 144Hz AHVA panels come close enough that you probably wouldn't be able to notice much difference between them and a fast TN panel like the PG278Q. I went from a VG248QE to an XB270HU and I don't notice the slightly slower response times.
