I have 3 different PCs at home. Installed Windows 7, 8.1 and 10 on each. Used the same image, settings, etc. Then just played CS:GO while switching PCs & OS's (peripherals were the same).

r0ach So, just picked up an Asus VG279Q 1080p 144hz IPS panel. The last panel I bought and returned was the new LG 27GN750-B 240hz IPS. I couldn't aim worth a damn with that 240hz LG panel for some reason, but this Asus is pretty good. I've tried a good amount of 'gaming' panels before and noticed there's a lot of differences in cursor movement on each one, so you can't just go by raw input lag numbers.

One such example is the "DDC/CI" option. From my understanding, it seems to be a setting that allows you to run programs on the PC to interface with the monitor and change things like brightness without touching the monitor itself. Some monitors expose this setting like Asus and Acer but not the LG. Having it enabled seems to dull down cursor movement a bit, so this is one example of how not all monitors are equal and you will want to buy one that exposes that option.

The Asus is supposed to only be HDMI 1.4 but I'm currently running it natively at 144hz over HDMI, which I didn't know was possible. I was expecting HDMI to be locked to 120hz.

Biks Just to say that I´ve rolled back from W10 to W8 after reading this thread and mouse feels sharp again. Insane!

Hint NetworkThrottleIndex ON significantly reduces network (NDIS) processing latency then a few other changes/observations which gave it added reduction of dpc latency, maybe people will stop disabling it unless they can prove better performance otherwise with other settings.

I'd also suggest setting NetworkThrottleIndex to 15 or 20 to increase throughput a little more than 10 (default value) which limits you to roughly ~15MB/s.

Reducing ISR DPC Processing Times for Network Adapters

To note NetworkThrottleIndex isn't controlled by MMCSS, and you will still see the benefits for those paranoid about MMCSS who disable it. Melody mentioned this and I confirmed last weekend, ndis dpc measurments were the same when NetworkThrottleIndex was set/enabled and MMCSS driver disabled/not loaded in the kernel.

Here's my script used to simplify measuring dpc/isr, you need xperf from the performance analyzer suite included in Windows Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK).

Thanks! testing it! seems like the mouse improved but I'll test it for the week

skupples so it was the CFL bulbs all this time?

that sound is identical to what the shock feels like from one
