Re: Hi all, need a little help to reproduce 60hz / 120hz iss

I read that NVidia removed their multi-monitor performance mode option in their driver a few years ago. I'm going to try and ask a contact I have at NVidia if there's a registry setting to enable it. It would be good to get confirmation that this happens for AMD users too, but I suspect it will, sin...

Hi all, need a little help to reproduce 60hz / 120hz issue

Hi forum, it's been a while since I posted here, but I'm working on a project involving high framerate display duplication and ran into a Windows issue that I was hoping to get some feedback on. It's very simple, windowed 3D apps shown on multiple monitors will be reduced to the lowest common denomi...

Re: Another software strobing implementation on a 3D engine

What I'm curious about, in order to make motion look as realistic as possible, and given ultra high native framerates from older games with simpler engines / graphics, would be to do accumulation-type motion blur (blending 300 fps into 60 or 120 fps), then BFI those frames. So you present a framerat...

Mark, if you catch a glimpse of the Vive 2 let us know how it looks! Things like weight, balance on the head, etc.

I'm totally buying a desktop Volta on Day 1, with HBM2 memory hopefully, I've been using a Maxwell (970) since 2014 so I'm itching to upgrade. Not sure if I'll get the 1170 or the 1180 version (or whatever it is they'll be called).

Re: Visiting CES 2018

Yet somehow NVIDIA/Microsoft screw it up. As far as I know, HDR is still not working properly on a Windows 10 PC with NVIDIA GPU. There are plenty of HDR games out now on PC that work just fine, which is the major thing that matters. I agree Windows 10 HDR support on the desktop is spotty and needs...

Re: Visiting CES 2018

@darzo, HDR performance impact is negligible. Yep. All major game engines have been rendering HDR internally for around a half decade now, so actually outputting HDR to an HDR display doesn't require much retooling, just a different tone mapping / encoding shader. I have the equations for taking li...

Re: Visiting CES 2018

Definitely a good idea to wait until HDMI 2.1 comes out to plunk down on a new OLED TV if you're a gamer. 4K 120hz and VRR being the big deals there. This is a "tick year" for 8K but a "tock year" for HDMI inputs. (tock being 2nd generation). I couldn't care less about 8K on a television. On a proje...

Re: Is Local Dimming/Quantum Dots Really a Good Thing?

So would HDR reduce the difference? HDR makes the benefits of FALD even more pronounced, since HDR TVs have a much brighter backlight requiring even more local dimming to bring the black floor back down, where appropriate. Recent Sony HDR TVs have local contrast enhancement, which is a huge, huge i...

Re: Is Local Dimming/Quantum Dots Really a Good Thing?

There's no doubt that FALD is a massive image quality improver for LCD tech, regardless of the underlying native contrast. I remember discussing with someone on AVS about FALD + VA or FALD + IPS and they said IPS' shortfalls in the native CR department are overcome by the huge improvement to overall...
