60Hz vs 120Hz Explained - Page 15

post #141 of 182
the only issue i met is because of some compression issue of the data if a proper decompressor was use at 1080 i at gamer end, i suspect the issue wouldnt be there at all. and even then it is only in very limited place.as for vsync enabled 1080i i have never tried it.you will need to play in window full screen tho cause game tend to push 1080p in fullscreen only (i suspect)

hi, how about this Monitor, would it bring closer the gap on ips and 120hz ?

i have a i7 3770k , gigabyte 7970 OC , only plan on using 1 video card and 1 monitor.

i wanted this monitor Samsung S27A950D

but was interested in this New IPS SAMSUNG Series 9 S27B970D

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824001565&Tpk=S27B970D

my last monitor i bought the Viewsonic vg191b for $1,025 , it broked after 8 years.

is the Series 9 a very good one , good details and specs ?

or should i go with the 120hz, but are 27"

thanks

That a question you're going to have to answer for yourself, unfortunately.

The Samsung S27B970D will have the best image quality over all IPS and TN panels, but I doubt it will support higher resolutions with custom timings, it will also have around 1 frame of input lag since it will have resolution scaling.

It is possible that the S27B970D will have low input lag, Eizo's 1600$ SX2762 has resolution scaling and only 8ms of input lag (prad.de), but it is the only high res IPS panel with scaling that has had such low input lag.

I have a S27A850D, it skips+tears frames when it goes over 60hz, I bet the S27B970D will be the same. No harm in waiting to see how things turn out, don't think 120hz,net has the 120hz Yamakasi's back in stock yet either.

I am in need of help deciding between Alienware m17x r4 and m18x r2. the only thing holding me back is the 120hz screen. If i get the 680m which wont be performing higher than 60 fps in say BF3 or something demanding does the 120hz become useless? so I would have to play something like CSS to get over 120 for me to actually have the advantage of the 120hz? Should I just get the 18x with the 60hz with the 680m. And does the 3d enabled kill the gaming performance will i need to turn the game down super low like how high can I have it set on battlefield 3 for 3d on a 680m? HELP anyone?thumb.gif

Oh man this thread messed me up. I literally have no idea what to select.

On one hand I will be using my system for video editing and on the other hand I will also be using it for gaming, so a good way in between there would be ideal. I remember when I had a dell 100 hz CRT screen back in the day, oh boy it ran smooth, so on that aspect this is extremely appealing.

Is anyone here able to suggest a 120hz monitor under 250 USD?

Smykster, you may be interested in this thread too:
You CAN tell apart 60Hz vs 120Hz vs 480Hz vs 960Hz indirectly via motion blur (proven)

Highly experienced gamers already know that 60fps@60Hz on CRT still looks sharper than 120fps@120Hz.on LCD. Few people understand why this is the case. (Hint: It's not entirely because of LCD pixel response speed).

(Side note: This also means introducing good high-speed scanning LED backlights to LCD monitors, could make 72fps@72Hz(960Hz simulated) have less motion blur on LCD than 120fps@120Hz, and without needing the GPU horsepower for 120fps. Scanning backlights, when excluding motion interpolation, can technically be added to LCD displays without adding motion lag.)

Hey! First post. I was looking for info regarding 60hz vs 120hz... lo and behold! A thread with the exact information I was looking for!

Still have a question tho. I am interested in purchasing one of those infamous "Korean" 27" IPS panels gaming/movies/interwebbing (in that order). All/most of which are 60hz models. I know some are labeled 120hz and there is overclocking madness going on as well. However, based on the information in post 136, is it even worth overclocking to 120hz at that resolution? The Dual DVI these come with, based on the math given, can't cope with the required throughput.

So lets say I find a display with some new fangled pcb's legitimately capable of 120hz. These would then require an HDMI or Display Port connection, which would require a scaler or similar yes? Which inherently increases response times. Something I'm trying to avoid per the gaming interests I have.

Here's another ingredient for the mess. I want two. And I want to run them off a single GTX 670 (or similarly hefty gpu when the time comes to upgrade), which will also have a 22" @ 1680x1050. Am I asking too much of the GPU? Is 120hz in this situation improbable or even useful?

Thanks to anybody who has any kind of input.

TL;DR - Will a GTX 670 run two "Korean" 27" at 120hz with a third 22" tagging along for gaming? Or is this just grade A sillyness given D-DVI restrictions?
