Best competitive Fortnite Monitor

Post by SwaggyFN » 02 Dec 2019, 05:43

Hi Everyone,

im using right now a MSI MAG27CQ 144hz WQHD 1ms MPRT, Adaptive Sync. Its a good one but i play most of the time fortnite which is a 3rd Person Shooter and by truning quickly around or doing some flick shots everything gets really blurry.

I took a look on what pros are using - most AW2518h and ASUS P258Q. Are they still good to go? Because there release date is like around june 2017.

The Chief likes the new Viewsonic XG270. How you guys feel about that? I dont know how 27 inch with only full-hd looks like. Havent even tried one.

My PC: Ryzen 5 3600 RTX 2070Super 16GB 3200mhz RAM

Hope you can advise me.

Yes, I I tuned the motion blur reduction feature of the ViewSonic XG270 gaming monitor.

If you want to minimize motion blur without blur reduction (i.e. ULMB, DyAc, PureXP, etc), your best bet is highest Hz, and you should at have access to FreeSync/G-SYNC.

I'll let others chime in with other monitor recommendations.

Kinda off-topic (maybe not), but competitive on a 27" monitor...? I'm going to wait for the 24" 240hz IPS iteration of (probably) Acer, which is expected to release in Q1 2020... I'll never game on a 27" (Fortnite is my main game ATM, used to be CS, but I feel like I'd feel the same about any game I'd take half seriously).

EDIT:
Okay so I Googled you and found out you're a controller player. I guess that as a former console, seeing how you (probably) used to play on huge TVs, a 27" sounds kind of small in comparison. IMO you should def go for 24".

Hi Twentyfoe,

Weird you looked me up on fortnitetracker right away xD.

But i started with console and since april im playong on mouse and keyboard.

I dont know about the 27 ips full hd 240hz.
Because if chief says its a beast why not believing him. Maybe he got sponsored but i think nobody sells the product „blur buster“ for a monitor.

So i think i will give him a try when he will be released in Germany. Amazon says this month.

For right now i bought a benq zowie xl2546. Will arrive on friday. But a non gsync monitor i dont know about that. But i will try it.

Announcements are coming for CES 2020, but to understand better, ViewSonic is a client of Blur Busters (business).

NVIDIA certifies G-SYNC
AMD certifies FreeSync
Blur Busters now certifies blur reduction modes

Historically there are so many low-quality blur reduction modes (lots of strobe crosstalk, poor colors, excess overdrive, etc) and that is an important initiative of Blur Busters Approved tuning & certification program.

ViewSonic is the first to use our Blur Busters strobe-backlight tuning & certification service. Blur Busters was born because we were working on an Arduino scanning backlight project, and I wrote the old Electronics Hacking: Creating Strobe Backlights FAQ in 2013-2014.

Yeah I understand that you've moved to PC, that is why I said you are a former console player. As I said, I Googled you and your YT came up. The clip had controller keys, which is how I knew (so I didn't actually Fortnitetrackered you, not that it matters).

As Chief just told you (and has said in other threads - it's no secret), BlurBusters now certifies monitors for their Blur Reduction modes, and ViewSonic's monitor is their first product, but regardless, you have to realize that this is the only 240hz IPS monitor out there (along with the new Acer that has just dropped as well), literally. So even if it a beast objectively, it doesn't mean that other 24" 240hz IPS monitors are trash - because they aren't even released yet!

So yeah, I simply stated that I think a 24" sized monitor is best suited for competitive games. If, for whatever reason (including impatience), you insist on getting a 27", you should also consider the newly released Acer Nitro XV273X. it's also 240Hz IPS. I haven't looked it up so I have no clue what's better (between this and the ViewSonic) because they are both irrelevant as far as I'm concerned (again, I'm waiting on the 24" ones), but there's another thread that discusses it.
