Re: G-Sync + IPS Panel

We can speculate. In my view, G-Sync is something gamers want, so manufacturers will focus on gaming monitors. IPS panels are not gaming focused, so I think it might take a while. If one would to appear soon, it would probably be an overpriced, niche monitor.

Re: Moving from CRT to Eizo FG2421 [EIZO's strobed monitor]

The thing about input lag isn't that you feel it. It's that it hurts you even if you don't feel it at all. On LAN, where network latency is almost non-existent, the reaction times of the players are of paramount importance, and those reaction times are pretty close together. On average, the guy with...

Re: Why does G-Sync require memory?

So the G-Sync module runs an actual OS inside? It's like an embedded OS and thus needs RAM?

Re: Low latency Keyboards

When I went from an Amiga 500 to a 486 PC, all I could buy were mechanical keyboards. I don't even remember rubber ones for sale back then. Were there any? Mechanical switches were taken for granted. And they weren't expensive. Now you need to pay a hefty premium for mechanical keys? They're like th...

Re: Why 4k? Why not call it 2160p?

Indeed, nice reply! So scaling will always be needed. I wonder though, do "true" retina displays (meaning displays where humans cannot make out individual pixels anymore) still result in blur when scaling? In order to avoid artifacts, interpolation is currently performed that averages nearby pixels ...

There is no reason why it shouldn't work. G-Sync just controls the monitor. Shadowplay works even if you turn off your monitor, or even disconnect it.

Re: Why 4k? Why not call it 2160p?

I don't really follow what you are saying, but if you mean that someone needs to work out how to make old content (say a game or video that runs at 800x600 ) look good on a widescreen, HD display, I agree with you. I mean that running a 1280x720 resolution on a 1920x1080 LCD monitor doesn't work an...

Re: Moving from CRT to Eizo FG2421 [EIZO's strobed monitor]

What do you mean by clouding? Crosshatch? Mine has just a tiny bit, only really visible and light backgrounds and searching for it. I mean the picture near the bottom of this review: http://www.flatpanelshd.com/review.php?subaction=showfull&id=1383107475 For a display of that price, this kind of re...

Re: Why 4k? Why not call it 2160p?

What we need are monitors with the same pixel size as CRTs. I'm getting tired of scaling blur... Has anyone calculated what resolution this would require? It would need to be insanely high, I assume, since the factor with CRTs was the thickness of the electron beam?
