Currently testing ASUS pg258q for a month, Need suggestions

Postby Prodeje79 » 03 Aug 2019, 11:48

I've had a Dell S2716dg , 1440p 144hz gsync for awhile now. Moved up from the good ol Asus vg24qe 1080p 144hz non gsync.

I definitely prefer 24-25' 1080p as a pure FPS gamer. I have a i5-7600k OCed on air to 5.2ghz with a 1080 GPU. Wish I had hyperthreading or an i7..... Anyways...

Currently mainly playing pubg and Ring, but nothing set in stone. There doesn't seem to be a 24-25' 1080p 144hz gsync IPS? Or non IPS?

Well I decided to pick up a used ASUS pg258q to try for a month and return. Received it yesterday. Set it up as noted on tft central. OD normal. Followed the same gsync guide, in game pubg Max fps 240-3, at 237.
Loved it, but only one evening of gaming in. Plenty of weeks to go.

My original intention was to Target a steady 144hz 144fps gsync experience (well 144-3 =141 technically.). Given this is a 240hz monitor, what is my play here? Realistically, never getting close to 237fps in pubg at least.

My two thoughts are:
1. Keep the Max fps 237 and play as is knowing I'll never hit it.
2. Choose a lower , more realistic max FPS to keep it always steady/pegged consistently. I'd have to confirm what that is, let's just guess 144?
Hopefully I'm making sense, probably a moot point. What other thoughts or ideas or suggestions do you have?

For maximum consistency, you need to cap FPS to something the game is actually achieving the majority of the time. Otherwise, latency and blur is going to be all over the place, especially on a 240Hz display. If you get 200+ FPS at one point, but then the game does 120-ish, you're gonna get a jump in motion blur and latency.

Personally, I cap to something the game can run at least 90% of the time in so it feels consistent and won't distract me due to feeling the change. Smaller variations are OK since with g-sync they go mostly unnoticed. Going from 140FPS to 120FPS for example with a 140FPS cap, or from 100 to 90 with a 100FPS is fine. But going from 220FPS to 120, that's a change you can't help but notice. Kind of like a slap in the face :mrgreen:

OK, thank you, this is what I was wanting to hear.
I'll have to keep track of some games on various maps to see my max, min, and average. Any programs you recommend to track this?

On a related note, is it best to dial in the monitor setting to 144hz vs 240hz even if I may limit to 141fps? In the perfect world I want a 144hz 1080p gsync ~24.5' monitor, but it doesn't exist?

MSI Afterburner.

Use the maximum Hz of your monitor. For example, 240Hz g-sync at 120FPS has lower lag than 144Hz g-sync at 120FPS because the scanout velocity is going to be that of 240Hz regardless of current FPS.
