PSA: Manufacturers Need To Add 60 Hz Single-Strobe Support
Why Should Gaming Monitor Manufacturers Add 60 Hz Single Strobe?
- There is 60 years of legacy 60fps 60Hz content. Videos, recordings, consoles, emulators, retro, etc.
SOLUTION: Need 60Hz single-strobe support to reduce motion blur of legacy 60fps content. Single-strobe isn't for eye-searcing bright Windows desktop. 60Hz single-strobe is for SIXTY YEARS of existing legacy content, video/dvd/videotape/sports/youtube/consoles/emulators/etc. Testing departments (QA) should correctly test 60Hz single strobe on correct 60fps content.
- Beginning in 2021, Blur Busters Approved makes 60Hz single-strobe mandatory.
SOLUTION: Add menu ("Enable 60Hz Single Strobe [ON/OFF]") with it OFF by default to prevent user complaints. Advanced users should be able to intentionally enable this setting.
- Strobing should be supported at all supported refresh rates.
SOLUTION: Add menu ("Unlock Unsuppored Strobe Refresh Rates [ON/OFF]") to prevent user complaints. As Intel lets people unlock CPU clocks, monitor manufacturers should enable advanced users to uncap strobe ranges.
- Most newer TVs support 60Hz single strobe
SOLUTION: Just like for televisions, please let gaming monitors choose 60Hz s ingle-strobe. Not everyone is bothered by flicker. Sony 4K TVs, LG 4K TVs and Samsung 4K TVs now all support 60Hz single-strobe in Gaming Mode.
- More users don't mind 60Hz single strobe than managers/engineers/lawyers at display manufacturers
SOLUTION: Just add warning message ("Warning 60Hz Will Flicker. Discontinue If You Have Discomfort") to cover your bases, even if manufacturer employees don't like 60 Hz single strobe.
- More and more reviewers lowers scores for monitors that don't support 60Hz single-strobe.
SOLUTION: Just see the screenshot below from the RTINGS website! Please add 60 Hz single strobe support if you don't want lower review scores resulting in lower sales for your monitor!
