I don't notice a difference either.

No idea if it adds input lag. I don't use it because I notice how it makes some letters worse so it doesn't help me.

I just tried it in https://www.testufo.com/ghosting and introduces alot of blur at 80.
I use TF 100 without overshoot issues with contrast 40.

I do not know either but you can try it. During a game just turn FreeSync off from the monitor menu (don't touch NVCP) and see if you notice any difference.

I never tried those monitors but I came from a CRT and can say this one is excellent.

Do not set 'Fixed refresh' in NVCP global configuration. It will disable G-Sync compatibility completely and overshoot is back. You can do it through the monitor or a profile in NVCP.
You need to create a profile in the 'Program Settings' tab and set 'Fixed refresh' there. Check if you set it like this.
I have vsync disabled in global configuration.

In Fortnite the image is perfect.


Hey man.I am very pleased with recent performance of my monitor.I cant imagine how it can be better than this.I always use at TF:100 setting.Color ghosting is really not a problem for me.Thanks for the advice. :D

Did someone test the input lag in every mode? To be honest i dont really notice any input lag difference between the 3 modes i use (racing,rts/rpg and fps). I do feel a very noticeable input lag cut by going from trace free 60 to 100 though.

As for Vividpixel it certainly does add input lag from the moment that the image needs further processing from the original + i find personally the image a little too gimmickly oversharpened. I would just stay away from it.

Yes TF:100 makes monitor very fast.Almost like a CRT monitor.I love this speed. :)
Racing mode is great.It decreases blue light which I hate.Also makes monitor's response time faster for my eyes.There may not be a input lag difference maybe.I may remember it wrong.But racing mode is the best mode for me.Less blue light,faster response time.
Vividpixel is a lifesaver for me.I am 40 years old.My eyes cant see perfect like 20 years ago.But I still am a gamer who likes playing multiplayer games.Racing mode's sharpness is not good like other modes but you can make it better by vividpixel.Also I see every ingame objects very detailed and crystal clear.This gives me high advantage in multiplayer fps because I can notice player movements a lot better and faster than other players.My scores are a lot higher now.Even me.A player who doesnt use headphones but just speakers of monitor.You know these people.They are mostly called noobs. :D

reshade "Sharpness filter" does better, there are several types and very flexible settings. I am 37 years old.

Try these settings for everything (web, apps, movies, games). For games just change TraceFree 100.
You can save profiles in monitor's MyFavorite menu.

Cinema mode
Brightness 70
Contrast 40
Saturation 50
Color Temp: user mode RGB 100
Skin Tone: Natural
Smart View: off
Sharpness 50
TraceFree 60
VividPixel 0
ASCR: off
FreeSync: on

Cinema mode gives better blacks and colors.
Blue Light Filter only works in Racing mode so don't turn it on.
Brightness use whatever you wish, it doesn't hide/show overdrive issues.
Contrast higher than 40 you will notice more blur. 60 is still good. Maximum use 78 and set color temp to warm but you can't use TraceFree 100.
VividPixel use 50 for web and apps if you want. I don't use it but you might like it.
The rest never touch them.

To play games without FreeSync create an Nvidia profile and set Monitor Technology to fixed refresh. Don't disable this in Global Configuration.

I never tried XG258Q.
¿Do you own one?
¿Do you think it's overdrive is bad as people say here?
https://forums.blurbusters.com/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5415&hilit=xg258

If so, then VG258QR overdrive is better because me and other users don't have problems. The ufo ghosting test is good at TF 60.
There were some users that never got it working but the overdrive is decent (not perfect) with G-Sync compatibility activated.
About input lag it's very responsive for me and I can use TF 100.
So, the only thing I can tell you is try one and return it if you think it's worse than XG258Q.
