Will an esports display become gaudy with a high refresh rate?
What is main feature of gaming monitors? High refresh rate, many people understand esports monitors as high refresh rates, although a high refresh rate is a good thing, but sometimes it can become tasteless, today we will talk about refresh rate of esports monitors.
A high refresh rate is good, but your hardware is supposed to be able to handle it. For regular monitors, if you enable v-sync while gaming, once frame rate drops below 60, average frame rate will decrease. fall quickly At 30 frames at this time there will be obvious stuttering. For such a high refresh rate display, minimum frame rate should reach 144 or 165, which is quite difficult for some 3A masterpieces or poorly optimized games, which is a test of graphics card performance.
Due to graphics card performance limitations, it is actually difficult to implement a high refresh rate. Video cards that can support 144Hz might be higher than GTX750, but if it's 165Hz, then very few can do it, such as 1060, 1070, and 1080 Series 10. Luckily, 1060 isn't expensive these days.
As for 144Hz refresh rate, you also have to consider timing technology and graphics card issue.
G-Sync/FreeSync synchronization technology is mandatory for eSports monitors or monitors with a high refresh rate. With timing technology, graphics card output and screen refresh can be synchronized when frame rate is unstable, such as original. When 100 frames suddenly change to 50 frames, if there is only vertical sync, screen will still tear and freeze, but with sync technology, screen tearing and freezing problems can be solved. However, timing technology is also developed by AMD and NVIDIA, so it is naturally related to graphics card, and you should pay attention to your graphics card brand.
Furthermore, display effect of screen depends on more than just panel. Although color effect of IPS panel is good, there are many factors that determine color, such as IC driver setting and HDR, which have become popular in recent years. HDR is commonly used in photography and television. The HDR effect is to make image brighter, richer in color and have a strong sense of layering. It is also used in monitors. However, since HDR has relatively high brightness requirements, it is not common on monitors. In order to use HDR, in addition to supporting monitor, game must also support it.
In short, don't blindly follow esports monitor trend, it's almost the same as buying a better regular monitor that requires high quality and image quality.
