fastest refresh rate in existence and at what point does it not matter.

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Original PosterOP

hello linus tech tip forum members and l.t.t employees. i know there are many review videos and guides but they do not directly answer my question.

my questions are as follows, what is the fastest refresh rate possible with current hardware even if its not available to consumers/commercial aka experimental and or not yet released. the second question is what is the fastest refresh rate display available to buy as of 2020. my third question is after what refresh rate are improvements not noticeable to the average user. for instance im running an old hp 22bw monitor which as far as i know is 1080p at 60hz and it looks just fine to me even comparable to my brothers  monitor which is a (im not sure) but i do know it is capable of 144hz at i think 4k? i  will find out the specs later and post them. in fact i think his desktop looks blurry compared to mine.

thanks for who ever comments and answers my questions forums are for discussion right?

please edit your post, and change the font to default, it's really painful to read it

i've seen and heard 480Hz, but that's few years ago now

commonly it's agreed on 144hz, but personally i can feel the difference between 144 and 240 (i own a 240) even though i cant tell visually (my game doesnt pan a lot, so "smoothness" isnt too obvious)

some people cant tell between 144hz and 60hz by first glance, but if you used 144hz for a bit, and go back to 60hz, you'll feel it

Spoiler

 

 

I hate Intel's pricing, Ryzen's weird quirks, Nvidia's pricing, and Radeon GPUs in general

 

Spoiler

 

Products I like:

Spoiler

Sony Xperia Z1 / Z2 / 10 ii, Asus Strix 970 / 1070, Samsung SSD, WD HDD, Corsair PSUs (AX, RM, CX(grey)), GeForce GPU, NZXT N450/S340, be quiet! Coolers, G.Skill Trident RAM, Logitech M525, Logitech G440, Razer Deathadder Elite

 

Products I hate:

Spoiler

Xperia Z3, XiaoMi 5c, Radeon GPUs, Razer Audio Products, any bloatwares

 

Companies I absolutely adore: (and hope it stays that way)

Spoiler

be quiet! - sent me AM4 mounting for my DRP3 even though it's way past the timeframe stated, no questions asked

Corsair - very good RMA experience, absolutely recommend

 

Companies I hate:

Spoiler

Nvidia, Intel, Apple, TMT (Thundermatch, a retailer)

 

Personal Blacklisted Companies:

Spoiler

Acer: shit tier quality products, shit tier customer service thus far, they "tried" to solve my issue but they arent really doing anything but delaying and delaying. (on-going case since July)

Gigabyte: horrible customer service (gigabyte had literally 0 customer service, asked me to go to retailer with NO WAY to email them about a question) but at least they fixed my shit in ONE MONTH (would probably take me 1 hour to fix if they let me email them)

XiaoMi Phones: built like a tank but the software is buggy as all hell

Seagate HDD: had too many dead seagate drives

Kingston SSD: 300V controller swap thingy

Razer (except their mouse)

 

Remember, just because I had good/bad experiences with these companies/product, doesn't mean you will have similar experiences too. I would still recommend these products if they made sense for your needs, but I'll add a disclaimer of my experience if it's relevant. Feel free to DM me asking why they are where they are.

thanks that was quick, so it's basically like using an ancient crt and then switching to a flatscreen for a while you now notice that the flatscreen is a millions time better

also is it true that ips displays look better, in my opinion an i.p.s dispay is better compared to l.c.d.s but again my budgets small so i get old equipment.

Depends on the game, the resolution, the graphic settings, and more. Some games barely get 30fps with a 2080ti and others get thousands.

Highest monitor refresh rate I have seen is 360hz.

From what I have heard, above 144 has minimal improvements. But it does depend on the person. For instance, I am used to 144 but also have a 300 and 60 screen and I can tell no difference response wise between them, only image quality wise is there a difference for me.


I am far from an expert in this so please correct me if I’m wrong.

one more question. if my display refreshes faster does that mean i would have an advantage over someone with a lower end set up like  on call of duty modern warfare . for instance if it  refreshes more i see stuff faster on my display than some one with 60hz or is that not the case?

Yes, you'll see stuff slightly faster and more often. It's not usually enough to give you a competitive advantage unless you're getting contract offers from pro teams.
