Do 1ms monitors have a benefit

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

This is probably going sound daft but I was just wondering if me having a 2ms or 5ms monitor makes any real difference to gaming compared to say a 12ms monitor when even on the best gaming rigs have a render time around 6 to 7.1ms playing online and that doesn't include the time it takes for the eye to see movement process that image, make a decision then press mouse button.. If you take a stop watch hit start then stop it still record's about 5ms + the 6.7ms render time that's almost 12ms so does my 2ms monitor make any real difference?

you want the monitor to have a gtg refresh rate (advertised rfr is usually mprt, not gtg) below what looks good for a given framerate. anything under 6-8ms for 144hz is usually good enough, and "1ms rfr" usually ends up around 4-5ms gtg. when the rfr is slower than the render time you get tearing/ghosting/other unsightly effects. 


topics i need help on:

Yeah, you definitely want lower. The marketing number doesn't show real world how it works though. Reviews are there. Those are average grey-to-grey numbers advertised. Or those very low 1ms and lower is with use of overdrive or black frame insertion. But even the fastest monitors still struggle to output their max refresh rate and in reality are nowhere near advertisedsed number. 

But faster panel with lower response time helps with noting blur. Check reviews for individual monitors.

Aside from a rough general comparison, for the most part advertised specs like 'response time' should be ignored or at least taken with a massive grain of salt.
