Optimal settings XL2546 in PUBG when fps is 60-150

Postby dl666 » 15 Aug 2018, 10:19

Hi!

I´ve just bought a XL2546 playing on a i7 2600k, gf 1080ti and have fps that is fluctuating a lot. What are the optimal settings that I should use according to you?
I have tryed understand strobe utility and Cru (which settings are prefered?) and tryed all the settings dyac/ama but still feels like its not smooth when my fps drops.
What are your suggestions ? Feels like my old Samsung 120hz felt smoother. Unsure if its ghosting or crosstalk that is the problem?

That's got nothing to do with the monitor. When you use blur reduction, you need your FPS to match your refresh rate. If you use 120Hz BR, you need 120FPS. There's nothing you can do on the monitor's side to make lower FPS not stutter on 120Hz BR.

The strobe utility and cru and there to tweak settings that affect crosstalk and input lag. They have nothing to do with low FPS looking stuttery.

Your only option here seems to be a platform upgrade. The 2600K when overclocked (4.2GHz minimum) is still good for the majority of games, but not all of them. Some games are more sensitive to RAM bandwidth, and with those games you will see FPS drops on a DDR3 platform compared to DDR4. An SSD might also help if you get stutters/micro-freezes when new assets are streamed from disk.

I own a 2500K OCed to 4.2GHz myself, and PUBG here was running very poorly (so poor, I refunded the game.)

Thanks for the answer! Yea i'm gonna upgrade later this year.
Do you have the parameters for the large vertical total in cru for the xl2546 if I wanna try out 182hz with lower crosstalk?
Also, if i'm running 182hz should i use Dyac? Ama? And do I need to mix with the Area Intensity settings, if so, what could you recommend?

I'm not using this monitor, so I don't know the details. Hopefully someone knows the answers.

The 182 Hz settings are found at http://www.blurbusters.com/crosstalk --

However, you can actually use any refresh rate as long as you follow Appendix A of that page.

Once VT's are maxed-out (max dotclock / pixel clock) -- then strobe crosstalk progressively improves everytime you slightly lower your refresh rate. The 182 Hz was simply picked as a sweet spot tradeoff for refreshrate versus framerate.

For lower-framerate games, you can also create 100Hz settings.

Also, some people do just play at maximum refresh rate (240Hz strobed) and tolerate the strobe crosstalk (degrading strobe quality in order to get the lowest strobe lag).

In this sense, the BenQ/Zowie monitors are remarkably flexible in letting you choose your own strobe crosstalk.

Thanks Chief!

So if i wanted to max out VT using 240hz what would the settings then be?
Also, should I be using V-sync? Which settings on Ama and Dyac on Premium?
Amazing webpage but I have trouble understanding everything :(

I would assume VT is already maxed out at 240Hz. VT is lower at lower refresh rates, unless you raise it back up to be the same as 240Hz.
