Re: Blur reduction possible on any monitor via software ?

Also, it should be done using direct register access to the monitor. Not via USB, not via serial cable, not by DDC/CI or VCP/MCCS commands, not by video cable. Won't work precise enough, alas. Those aren't microsecond accurate. You need a direct GPIO wire, perhaps a parallel port pin of a direct PC...

Re: Blur reduction possible on any monitor via software ?

I tried making a user-mode program which turns off the monitor during VBLANK on Linux but it resulted in extreme flickering (running at 60hz monitor won't overclock on Linux for some reason). Would it be possible to run the real time code while Windows / Linux is running ? At least my monitor let's ...

Re: Blur reduction possible on any monitor via software ?

Yeah the latency will cause problems and it will be different on each system so it will require to user to manually set the latency offset.

If this is implemented at a very low level the software shouldn't add too much latency.

If anyone knows how to do this write a POC if possible.

Re: Blur reduction possible on any monitor via software ?

Software can do nano-second accurate timing using the HPET. But the communication between the HPET and the display probably will have a bit of latency which will have to be compensated.

Re: Blur reduction possible on any monitor via software ?

What about turning off the backlight during refreshes similar to normal blur reduction ?

Re: Blur reduction possible on any monitor via software ?

Would this also be possible via a monitor firmware mod ?

Re: Innolux LVDS display overclocked to 106hz

Does anyone know how to get the brightness working when using a custom resolution ?

Re: Innolux LVDS display overclocked to 106hz

Yes, the AMD pixel clock patcher may also help, but it might be a little trickier for laptops. That said, we've got a user who overclocked a laptop screen to a scorchingly high 180Hz (verified!) . I tried AMD Pixel clock patcher but it didn't work. Does it support laptops (LVDS / eDP) and how can I...

Blur reduction possible on any monitor via software ?

Hi is it possible to write a program that turns off the backlight during refreshes giving blur reduction on any monitor ? Or does software have too much latency but I think it can be solved by implementing it at low level.Would be safe for the monitors (I think LED monitors should be ok since they a...

Re: Innolux LVDS display overclocked to 106hz

Does the display support lower resolutions, e.g. 1024x600? This can give you more overclocking headroom, but that gives you potential scaling issues. Yes, the AMD pixel clock patcher may also help, but it might be a little trickier for laptops. That said, we've got a user who overclocked a laptop s...
