Re: Eye strain problem

75Hz does give you more headroom for slightly less accurate 60fps frame rate capping. But as long as the emulator has sub-milisecond-perfect framepacing, I've seen some users overclock 4K 60Hz FreeSync monitors to 61Hz or 62Hz, cap to 60fps, and use it with emulators without lag. 4K 59fps at 60Hz V...

Re: Eye strain problem

Unfortunately, even though it doesn't have the same annoying sheen that the AOC 24G2 had, I'm returning the Viewsonic XG2402 because the colors were just really bad. I tried adjusting all the settings and nothing could help the really washed out look. It was quite a bit more washed out than any othe...

Re: Eye strain problem

Okay I just received the Viewsonic xg2402, and after using it for a little bit, it does not seem to have the weird sheen that the AOC 24G2 had which is good. The TN panel definitely looks a bit washed out and the gamma shifts from the top to the bottom, but I think I can get used to it. Moving the m...

Re: Eye strain problem

At this stage, I think the easier solution for shimmer-related eyestrain is to switch to a panel that does not have the shimmer. Many 1440p IPS panels don't have this shimmer, so you may have to spend more money to say goodbye to that kind of shimmer. Damn that really sucks because it's hard to go ...

Re: Eye strain problem

I think I know why you had eye strain as I encountered the same issue, I had the S2719DGF and later tried the 24in variant both gave me eye strain that after 1hr or so I could not look at the screen, and I realized for this particular monitors it was the the anti glare coating/filter on the screen ...

Re: Eye strain problem

Sorry I guess I should've been more specific. I was talking about the AOC 24G2 IPS panel specifically, because I believe it is one of the cheapest IPS 144hz VRR monitors at under 200 dollars. When I say cutting corners I'm talking not just pure performance metrics like latency, pixel response, ghos...

Re: Eye strain problem

Is it a case of cutting corners to get an IPS panel? Pretty much no longer the case, when you use 240Hz "1ms" IPS. They're quite competitive with TN. The fastest TN will be faster (say, the BenQ XL2546S DyAC+ and like), but my personal experience is that models such as ViewSonic XG270 and ASUS VG27...

Re: Eye strain problem

Yeah after spending all day at work looking at regular cheap monitors I just came home and immediately the AOC 24G2 is giving me a headache. It has this weird cloudy sheen that makes it hard to look at. I turned the contrast way down, the brightness is at 5, and digital vibrancy at 47%. I've also me...

Can't get above 60hz DVI-HDMI on my retro pc using an AOC 24G2 monitor

I have a Windows 98 retro pc setup that I like to use, and I thought having a high frame rate monitor might be nice, since many old pc games use odd ball refresh rates higher than 60hz. I've already been using a cheap Asus VS239H-P monitor with a DVI-HDMI cable attached to a Geforce 4 ti 4600, and i...
