  4. TV Have Bad Input Lag For Gaming? I Might Have A Solution

    These older samsungs seriously have the most convoluted menu I've ever seen. And why does it disable the internal EQ? Quite frustrating.
  5. Rather amazingly, my 760Ti Succ edition actually plays rocket league perfectly fine.


    Still can't manage heaven benchmark though.


    For those of you curious, my 760Ti succ edition has been underclocked to 800mhz core and still crashes with heaven benchmark...

      I for some reason went blank about the existance of the OEM 760ti

      The 760Ti was a rare card because it was never released as an off the shelf card, it only came with OEM PCs like dells.

  6. TV Have Bad Input Lag For Gaming? I Might Have A Solution

    This TV is chock full of unpleasant surprises...
  7. TV Have Bad Input Lag For Gaming? I Might Have A Solution

    Its a Samsung LN55C630 Forgot to mention in the original post (though I mentioned in the comments) that I tried turning off every image inhancement feature and it made no noticable difference in the input delay.
  8. TV Have Bad Input Lag For Gaming? I Might Have A Solution

    No actual measurements, because its a night and day difference.
  9. TV Have Bad Input Lag For Gaming? I Might Have A Solution

    The fact that I don't overshoot everything when I move the mouse. The input lag on this old samsung is REALLY bad. Even navigating windows is hard because I tended to overshoot what I wanted to click on. If you really don't believe me, I can set up a PC and record a video.
  10. TV Have Bad Input Lag For Gaming? I Might Have A Solution

    Every TV I have serviced at work has had VGA actually, and they've all had lower response time on it as well... However, the newest model I've serviced is from 2015. I just checked, and our 4k sony bravia does not have VGA.
  11. TV Have Bad Input Lag For Gaming? I Might Have A Solution

    I tried turning it off in my TV, sadly it didn't make a difference in the input delay...

    And it frees up an HDMI port
  13. Guys I found a use for VGA!

      @silentprototipe I still use it daily :P 4 of my 7 pcs use it on the mobo, several of them have it on the gpu, all 4 of my monitors have vga (3 are vga and DVI-D). And my most recent acquisition a 486 mobo, will have a graphics card that only uses vga :P. Oh and my legacy laptop has it, My main laptop also uses vga as one of its outputs (it has hdmi as well but vga is far more useful)

      @silentprototipe I do!  I have an old(er) Dell 22" 1680x1050 display that uses VGA and DVI.  Sometimes I use it as a secondary display for my laptop since my laptop has a VGA port on it.

      @silentprototipe dunno about you, but in our schools alot of them still use VGA cables, even when you hear the teachers complaining about it and HDMI connectors are available. thankfully its mostly gone in my local polytecnic though, but IIRC you'll still see them lying around sometimes.

  14. So I currently own a 55in Samsung TV from about 2010. It was about $1,500 retail back then. I've been using it to watch movies from my HTPC, but the input lag was absolutely unusable for gaming, aside from maybe Shellshock Live. These TVs often have a ton of image processing (like frame interpolation, etc) that adds delay from the input to the LCD. But with my recently obtained knowledge on these things, I figured that VGA would bypass a lot of this stuff. And it does. I've always said never to use VGA anymore, but TVs (ESPECIALLY older ones) may have less input delay, and some even look loads BETTER on VGA. However, to get the absolute best possible image, I've found that running Auto Adjust on the TV while displaying a pixel by pixel checkerboard with this software's test mode, VGA can look as crisp as HDMI with a good cable. But I went one step further. I got a male-male VGA coupler (basically the shortest VGA cable physically possible) on ebay, connected it to a displayport to VGA converter, and put a displayport extension on the converter. This puts the DAC in the displayport adapter as close as possible to the ADC inside the TV, bringing interference down to a practically undetectable level. So now I've got a TV with low input lag AND displayport! I do like the frame interpolation for watching movies though, so a simple fix is to plug in HDMI and VGA, and mirror them in windows, switching inputs to enable or disable frame interpolation (which adds input lag) So if you've got a TV that you'd like to game on but the input lag is too bad, it might actually be worth trying its VGA input

    Powerline adapters are extremely unreliable from my experience. Ethernet cables have four carefully designed pairs of wires for data transfer, and house wiring does not. Not to mention electrically noisy things on the house wiring that can cause interference. I'd do a wifi mesh if I were you.
