  1. DisplayPort suddenly not working.

    Thanks for the thanks, but let's not necro this thread any more *Locked*
  2. Nvidia G-Sync Module - ASUS VG278HR

    The DIY G-Sync module was a limited edition product which only existed as a stop-gap solution when G-Sync was first created, before "real" G-Sync monitors were ready for the market. It was never intended as an ongoing product, and they were discontinued many many years ago once the first actual G-Sync monitors became available. The only way to get one would be used, which is highly unlikely to find since anyone who bought one would have installed it in their own monitor.
  3. Acer GN246HL VS ASUS VG248QE

    You're responding to a thread from over a year ago — necro post locked
  4. Here: https://www.amazon.com/Plugable-DisplayPort-Supports-displays-3840x2160/dp/B00S0C7QO8/ But again this is for DisplayPort PC to HDMI display only. If you're looking to convert HDMI output to DisplayPort display, the adapters available today only go up to 1080p 120 Hz.
  5. If you want to connect a DisplayPort PC to an HDMI display, you can use DP to HDMI 2.0 active adapters, those will support 1080p at 144 Hz. However, the HDMI input on the monitor may be limited to 120 Hz itself (which is certainly the case if you are limited to 120 Hz when using a straight HDMI connection).
  6. ASUS PG35VQ (3440x1440@200hz)

  7. Is HDMI 2.1 something for monitors

    The HDMI 2.1 Specification is a document which describes how to build an HDMI device. Compared to version 2.0 of this document, the 2.1 revision contains additional instructions on how to implement new features such as VRR, eARC, and additional HDR standards. All new HDMI devices are designed referencing the latest version of the specification, which is version 2.1 since the end of 2017. This version contains descriptions of new features that were not present in the previous version; manufacturers may choose to implement some or all of the new features if they want to, or they can continue making HDMI devices with the same capabilities as they have for the last few years. HDMI device capabilities are defined by what features the manufacturer has decided to implement. "HDMI 2.1" is not a feature package that you either implement or don't implement. As a manufacturer you design based on the latest version of the specification, and pick and choose which capabilities you want to implement. How long ago each capability was added to the specification is sort of irrelevant. Version numbers are not a proper way of describing devices, "HDMI 2.1" has no formal meaning besides the fact that a product has been certified under version 2.1 of the HDMI CTS (which does not mean it implements any new capabilities defined in HDMI 2.1). G-Sync monitors are limited to the capabilities provided by NVIDIA's G-Sync module. HDMI 2.0 was published in 2013, but it is only just this year (2018) that the first monitors using NVIDIA's new G-Sync module with HDMI 2.0 support have appeared on the market. HDMI 2.1 will not be available in G-Sync monitors until NVIDIA creates another updated G-Sync module, which may take many years from now considering HDMI 2.1 was just published at the end of 2017. Perhaps it is possible that some of the new capabilities defined in the HDMI 2.1 specification can be implemented with a firmware update, but that is unlikely for complex features like HDMI's VRR standard or higher bandwidth. Those will almost certainly require new control chips to be designed and fabricated, which usually takes some years after the publication of the standard. To our knowledge, no current graphics cards support any new capabilities introduced in HDMI 2.1, including RTX cards. You will not be able to use any feature of HDMI unless the source and display both know how to handle that particular feature. This applies to all new features introduced in HDMI 2.1. The source and display must both support whatever feature is in question. To take advantage of any new features defined in HDMI 2.1, the devices on both ends must know how to handle the protocols involved in that feature. In terms of general compatibility though, all HDMI devices are intercompatible. You will just be limited to only the features supported by both the source and display, you won't be able to use any features unless both devices support it. Perhaps one day. However, currently that would be a violation of the HDMI licensing agreement. No device can advertise "HDMI 2.1" until it has been certified under version 2.1 of the HDMI CTS at an authorized testing center. Since version 2.1 of the HDMI CTS has not been finished being written yet, "HDMI 2.1 certification" is currently impossible. That could mean anything, it might mean it's "compatible" with future HDMI 2.1 displays (which is true of all HDMI devices), or it could mean they support some or all of the new features in HDMI 2.1. Again, bear in mind that "HDMI 2.1" has no formal definition. It is just the version of the document used to design HDMI devices. Just because a device advertises "HDMI 2.1" does not mean it implements 48 Gbit/s bandwidth, VRR, or any of the new features defined in the HDMI 2.1 specification. Devices could just be the same capabilities as old HDMI 2.0 devices, but with one feature like eARC implemented, and call it "HDMI 2.1". HDMI devices are properly described with their actual capabilities, not with a version number. So a more proper question would be "what is the difference between a 1440p 144 Hz monitor that implements the VRR feature defined in the HDMI 2.1 specification compared to one that does not", to which the answer is self-explanatory; one supports the described feature, and the other one doesn't Just saying the monitor has "HDMI 2.1 support" doesn't actually mean anything.
  8. 144Hz display

    Ah I see Well the Samsung C24FG70 you linked is still a better option than the VG248QE.
  9. 144Hz display

    It is an LCD display, using LEDs to produce light. That is what all "LED" displays are. The VG248QE is limited to 60 Hz at 1080p over HDMI. The VG248QE is one of the oldest 144 Hz monitors still sold, and is still practically the same price it was 5 years ago. It is not a good value at all, there are many monitors which are superior in every way that cost the same or less, like the ViewSonic XG2402.
  10. There aren't any, that I'm aware of.
  11. Nvidia card or freesync advantage

    FreeSync/G-Sync only operate when you're below 144 FPS, so if you're above that, you don't really need it anyway.
  12. monitor with an output port?

    You can use a capture card to intercept the video signal being sent to the monitor.
  13. 4k 24 Inch 144hz monitor??

    Necro locked.
  14. No, it will just behave like a normal non-FreeSync monitor.
