First off, 240hz doesn't even seem like some amazing feature. I highly doubt many can tell a difference between it and 144hz - I know I couldn't really between 120 and 144 and then 180
I can easily blind test a 20-30% gain all the way up to the fastest monitor refresh rate that i've seen (144hz) without particularly dramatic diminishing returns either. 50 vs 65 isn't that much easier than 110 vs 143 for example. A 100% gain? Now we're talking
Remember that this isn't just about smoothness. There's a minor gain on input lag and 240hz will have half of the eye-tracking related motion blur of 120hz which is the biggest cause of motion blur in todays displays.
With a technology like Gsync especially, there is significant benefit from increased refresh speed even if none of your frames are as fast as the monitor. To take full advantage of adaptive refresh you want all of your frames to be faster than the slowest speed of the monitor but slower than the fastest speed which means floating at an average well below the maximum refresh rate.
It's the best competitive monitor; there is a large market.Edited by Cyro999 - 5/31/16 at 5:30pm
