60FPS vs 120FPS, Who Will See Who First? - Page 3

post #21 of 51
You won't have an advantage at 120 FPS, but if you can lock it in at 88 FPS you'll be able to see people before hand, just gotta deal with the tracks of fire wherever you go.

You *think* you can notice the difference.

If you have one computer in a room running at 50 fps and another in a different room at 60 fps, and you were told to guess which one, I'm willing to bet that most users wouldn't be able to tell a difference.

Unless you're specifically looking for signs to tell you, you most likely won't notice. Which is why sometimes you find yourself going over the speed limit without realizing it... if you could always accurately judge, you wouldn't need an accurate reading for comparison.

and lol @ everyone who thinks they have the brain mechanics of a fighter pilot.

Both PC have identical specs, apart from the monitor

PC 1: 60hz monitor with VSYNC ON getting constant 60FPS
PC 2: 120hz monitor with VSYNC ON getting constant 120fps
Only thing I dont understand is why does the 120hz monitor get twice the FPS even though they are using the same system build? Dont think its possible to double your FPS by just upgrading your monitor.

Thread Starter 
Well i am the person with 120hz monitor and getting 120hz constant, and i notice the difference ALOT it is a huuuuge difference for me, i find it torture going back ot a 60hz monitor now.
the reason why i have asked is that a guy in my clan is being a little *****, he thinks he is amazing at bad company 2 but i kill him every time, he says its hacks which is causing alot of problems... i am just seeing him faster than i used to when i was using a 60hz monitor, but i was not sure if this is a placebo or if it was actually making a difference to my gameplay..
i tell him "maybe its my monitor and the fact that i am seeing 120FPS whereas you are seeing 60FPS" but he says thats bull**** and that i am hacking.... i would just love to get this cleared up with him.

because with VSYNC ON the framerate is capped at the hz of the monitor, so using a 60hz monitor the framerate with vsync on is capped at 60, but with a 120hz monitor the framerate caps off at 120FPS

That's because Vsync limits the FPS to the refresh rate of your monitor, hence:

60 Hz monitor + VSync = 60 FPS
120 Hz monitor + VSync = 120 FPS.

It does not double the FPS, the capability to perform at 120 FPS is still there, however it's limited to 60 FPS due to the refresh rate of that monitor being 60 Hz.

So, to a certain extent you will notice somebody first in a sense.

There's the argument that the human eye cant see more than 30 frames per second so above that really shouldn't make a difference. But, I still think there's very small fractions of a difference which still count.

So with the 60 vs 120 IMO I think it's not a matter of who sees who first but a matter how you can pin point each other's exact location when your screen updates those frames. So 120 fps would be more of a guarantee than 60.
i'm human and i can clearly tell the difference between 30 and 60 fps...

You not thinking you can tell the difference is not a scientific qualification; a good example is with cars, people think they are driving faster in a louder car, its something created by the mind but it doesn't mean that they will lap a track or go down the quarter mile any faster despite any perceived advantages they have.

60 fps television I was specifically referring to single camera television shows (ie sitcoms). Watch a sitcom, then watch a movie, the former will seem somewhat lacking.

Humm, I see. But I can easily get 100+ FPS on my 75hz monitor, so its a v sync thing?
