Native 120Hz TVs

How common are these TVs now? Are they rare or becoming the new standard?

MS talks about 120Hz on their next console. Would owner's of TVs with "emulated" 120Hz TVs or native 60Hz benefit at all from 120Hz?

Re: Micro-stutter or just "frame skips"?

Cyclic stutter is a good name for it I think. :) I'm pretty sure drivers are set to Application Settings (will double check), and in-game to vsync on. And yes, it only happens with vsync on. I've seen this phenomenon before but I can't remember in which game, as it's pretty rare nowadays. Is this so...

Micro-stutter or just "frame skips"?

I have a fairly good understanding of what micro stuttering is and why it occurs. Have a look here for reference: https://www.pcgamer.com/what-is-microstutter-and-how-do-i-fix-it/. And here: https://testufo.com/stutter#demo=microstuttering&foreground=ffffff&background=000000&pps=720. But in Trials R...

Re: The mouse polling rate in games

Well, Just Cause 4 is out and the exact thing happens there. Also, even 60 Hz isn't even totally smooth in all places on the map. But I suppose that's more down to buggy code than anything else. Still, I think 75 Hz looks slightly better in this game than in JC3. I'll try the RTSS trick here also. @...

Re: The mouse polling rate in games

I use 75Hz because there's no flicker (strobing) at that Hz. Btw, currently I'm using http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Video-Tweak/RefreshLock.shtml to lock the refresh rate in games. I only tested it in Arma3 and it works there at least. Just wondering; is there another and more "native" way of l...

Re: The mouse polling rate in games

Do you mean if the monitor is overclocked? No, it's a Benq XL2720Z running at 75Hz. I have no idea if it's frame skipping (is that actually a thing?).
My CPU is overclocked (8700K @ 4.7GHz).

Re: The mouse polling rate in games

Thanks for the in-depth explanation. :) My real refresh rate is 74.998, and I tried the values 74988, 74991, 74985, 74981 and even as low as 74975 in RTSS. None of which had any effect unfortunately. Didn't have any luck with Fast Sync either. Oh well, the game is very smooth even at 60Hz so I guess...

The mouse polling rate in games

Ok, here is an observation I have made, and a somewhat annoying observation as such. In very few games - only Mirror's Edge 2 and Just Cause 3 so far - the mouse movements exhibits stutters (or rather, frame pacing issues) if I set the refresh rate to anything other than 60. It's very strange, but I...

Re: List of upcoming freesync monitors

I noted these words in the marketing text: "The CHG90 also boasts a rapid 1ms response time, 144hz screen refresh rate, and advanced, four-channel scanning technology to deter motion blur throughout the entire screen ". What does that in bold mean? Also, I'm wondering about the following: 1. How tal...
