I'll certainly have him give that a shot.

Games not recognizing custom overclocked resolutions

I'm curious if anyone else has run into this. I have a friend who bought one of those cheap Korean IPS monitors, and managed to overclock it to 96Hz at the native 1440p. Unfortunately since doing that, many games do not seem to be able to use the custom resolution and will only run at 60 Hz. Even ga...

Re: Benq Xl2411Z, covered in red pixelation when enabling 14

That's the type of artifacting you can get when you push monitor overclocking too far. I couldn't say what else might be causing it. It definitely shouldn't be happening on a retail 144Hz monitor in either case.

Re: G-SYNC no longer capping frames at 144 when in Windowed?

That's just the way the drivers function. There's a separate option to enable G-sync in widowed mode in the drivers though I have no idea how well it works. It's been in the drivers for a while now but I haven't been able to test it since my PC never runs widowed mode games smoothly so even G-sync c...

Re: What are these weird bar lines I'm getting?

You'd be surprised how often interlacing is still used. I still see video game trailers by the largest publishers displaying interlacing artifacts or stutter due to poor quality deinterlacing.

Re: G-Sync game compatibility - Post your test results here

It could be a lot of things and is often specific to certain hardware configurations. I generally put it down to some sort of problem with the game engine. I know that some engines behave poorly when the rendering thread is hitting a CPU bottleneck which is quite common.

Re: Consistent tearline at top of screen with G-sync [bug?]

You're the first person I've found whose had the same problem as me, or at least the first person to have noticed it. My best guess is that it's a minor timing issue with the display output.

Re: Consistent tearline at top of screen with G-sync [bug?]

When I upgraded to a GTX 970 the problem disappeared. It seemed to be a problem with my old GTX 760, rather than the drivers or monitor. I would suggest swapping your two cards to see if the problem lies with your current primary. I never did figure out what specifically caused the problem. I wouldn...

Re: Acer announces 144hz IPS 1440p G-SYNC! [XB270HU, XG270HU

I've tried 3 or 4 of those "color keeper" programs and haven't had a single one function for any game I have tested. Games that change the desktop color settings seem to be pretty rare, mostly games running on id Software engines in my experience though I'm not sure I've tested any of those.
