60fps vs 144hz

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I know i know very repetitive question, but i'm not looking to be a better gamer but better eye experience, i came here after watching all the comparison videos but how much difference it makes between 60hz vs 144hz? Will i say OMG YES !! Can any person with experience confirm this?

NOTE: currently i have 24inch 75hz ips 1ms monitor

Honestly you should go to a near by store and experience it yourself.

For me, i don't notice it too much. I'm generally more focused on the game than on the framerate.

On my phone i DO notice the jump from 60 to 90hz (One Plus 7 Pro) but i use that literally all the time.

I didn’t notice much but I guess that’s what you get for moving to freesync and 144hz at the same time.


I tried setting back down to 60 but it didn’t make any difference to my skill, I still made all the normal mistakes I make.


I went from 5ms 60hz 22in no freesync to 24in 144hz 1ms freesync. I couldn’t tell tbh but I haven’t gone back the other way fully to my 8 year old monitor so I have never made the direct comparison.


Despite no discernible difference I would still recommend getting a 144hz freesync monitor.


You won’t notice the difference unless you set the graphics settings too high.

first time I saw it, 144Hz was immediately different, I'm talking day and night difference. 

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

After getting used to 144Hz it actually seems natural. But sigh loudly every time when have to use 60Hz. It just seems to skip frames.

Suggesting to test 144Hz somewhere side by side with 60Hz.

... but I'm no expert

It really seems like this thread has two conflicting sides. So a good answer in my eyes (ha) is that it's going to be different for everyone since two people are saying they didn't see it much and two others said they saw it. I personally saw a huge difference, with 144hz being much smoother than 60hz that I had to get used to it.


@FloRolf is right, go try it for yourself.


I often see 144hz panels on laptops in my local costco. Best Buy, microcenter, and Fry's will also have them but costco always had both for comparison.

Depends on the person. The same people that either didn't notice or cant notice aren't gonna be the type that need or want it. 


I don't need it but wouldn't play without it again. Just another handicap. I imagine the people on the bottom of the score boards fall in the category of not noticing. 


Its a world of difference for a fast pace game such as a first person shooter. Even more so for online play. Im sure playing gta or some other which are much slower and less skill based would really benefit from it.

Does it make a difference in your ability when playing games?  I can't personally say as I've not been able to experience it in that capacity.  However, I have been able to observe games and even just general desktop use, as well as get hands-on with the desktop, and I will say that visually, it's night and day different.  Mathematically, 144 is to 60 as 60 is to 25, and subjectively, I'd say that seems about right in terms of feel.  Just scrolling the start menu or a web page, or moving a window around feels and looks so nice.  With that said (and this may come as a surprise or seem counter intuitive) in some games, I don't notice that much of a change.  Certainly for some it's as big a deal as anything I said above, but for others, the difference doesn't jump out to me as much.  I think it's a combination of how much (and what type) of movement the game involves, as well as a "getting used to it" factor.  The latter is part of the reason I haven't upgraded myself (the other being price).  I know if I went for it I'd not be able to go back, and I already hate having to deal with 30 fps content, so the last thing I want is to get into a situation where even 60 fps is insufferable for me.
