Is very fast the same response time/input lag as normal then?
Can't say whether input lag changes, but the overdrive settings do cause slightly worse coronas when gsync is enabled and when you go above normal.

Re: Alienware AW2518HF Freesync blue-tinted ghosting at 240h

So I figured out the issue behind the intensified ghosting past 200Hz, it occurs when freesync is disabled. With nvidia allowing freesync support at the driver level i was able to force gsync compatibility on and saw that its now uniform across all refresh rates in terms of ghosting.

Re: Alienware AW2518HF Freesync blue-tinted ghosting at 240h

Just tested my monitor with an rx 480 and the usual pixel inversion artifact issues i have disappear. There is still some minor ghosting, but its considerably better on radeon. Is there anything that can be done to get it right on my nvidia gpu? I'v tried tinkering with settings in CRU and i can rem...

Re: Alienware AW2518HF Freesync blue-tinted ghosting at 240h

I had this same problem on all my AW2518HF samples, doesn´t matter if it had freesync ON or OFF. Had to turn the contrast so low to eliminate it partially. Eventually got rid of this monitor and now I´m about to buy the Asus XG248Q. If you want to keep the AW you will have to deal and accept this i...

Advanced Trick To Try Try calibrating using the Lagom Contrast pattern and try a dynamic-range reduce carefully -- calibrate until you see all squares, then try to slightly brighten your digital black level a bit. (And/or slightly darken your digital white level a bit). The only setting that allows...

Alienware AW2518HF Freesync blue-tinted ghosting at 240hz

Hi, So i got this monitor on wednesday, I'm using it with DP cable and its on the standard preset, normal response time setting and with 75% brightness and 75% contrast. I have come across some ghosting that becomes more noticeable once you go over 201hz where the corona takes on a blue-tint as you ...
