165/240hz monitor

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Would a setup with 4 980ti's in sli with a 5960x be able to utilize a 165/240hz monitor? If not then 144hz? Any suggestions to make it work if it doesn't? 1080p btw.

4 980Ti's for 1080p?

 

you're out of your mind...

 

and 240hz doesnt exist.

 

165hz does but for the ASUS ROG SWIFT PG279Q.

Is there a 240mhz monitor and what display cables do you need for it?  If you go 144mhz you can get 1440p which also support 1080 obviously but its the same scaling.

Im using a 60mhz monitor but i may buy a new one i don't know if there is a big difference between 120 and 144mhz.

If you can afford a 240HZ, you'll be able to buy those 4 cards. And I'm sure they will be fine even in newer games in witcher 3, maybe not 240FPS.



this guy is at 4k and 80-110fps, so at 1080p you should do just fine.

Yes and no. you dont need 4 980tis for one. no matter what you get as a setup you wont push 140fps on AAA titles. for for games like CSGO, TF2, and easy to run games that would actually benefit from high FPS other than just looking nice it can. but you dont need 4 980tis. hell a single 970 or 960 could push over 240 for games like CSGO and TF2

Theoretically, yes, four 980Tis would drive games at that rate, but I thought that would have been obvious... <_<

 

yes they exist

240Hz TVs exist, but that's an interpolated refresh rate - which is an abomination.

Theoretical of course, thanks for sharing though.

240hz monitors don't exist, and there is only one 165hz monitor on the market.


...is there a question here? 🤔

Sauron'stm Product Scores:

Spoiler

Just a list of my personal scores for some products, in no particular order, with brief comments. I just got the idea to do them so they aren't many for now :)

Don't take these as complete reviews or final truths - they are just my personal impressions on products I may or may not have used, summed up in a couple of sentences and a rough score. All scores take into account the unit's price and time of release, heavily so, therefore don't expect absolute performance to be reflected here.

 

-Lenovo Thinkpad X220 - [8/10]

Spoiler

A durable and reliable machine that is relatively lightweight, has all the hardware it needs to never feel sluggish and has a great IPS matte screen. Downsides are mostly due to its age, most notably the screen resolution of 1366x768 and usb 2.0 ports.

 

-Apple Macbook (2015) - [Garbage -/10]

Spoiler

From my perspective, this product has no redeeming factors given its price and the competition. It is underpowered, overpriced, impractical due to its single port and is made redundant even by Apple's own iPad pro line.

 

-OnePlus X - [7/10]

Spoiler

A good phone for the price. It does everything I (and most people) need without being sluggish and has no particularly bad flaws. The lack of recent software updates and relatively barebones feature kit (most notably the lack of 5GHz wifi, biometric sensors and backlight for the capacitive buttons) prevent it from being exceptional.

 

-Microsoft Surface Book 2 - [Garbage - -/10]

Spoiler

Overpriced and rushed, offers nothing notable compared to the competition, doesn't come with an adequate charger despite the premium price. Worse than the Macbook for not even offering the small plus sides of having macOS. Buy a Razer Blade if you want high performance in a (relatively) light package.

 

-Intel Core i7 2600/k - [9/10]

Spoiler

Quite possibly Intel's best product launch ever. It had all the bleeding edge features of the time, it came with a very significant performance improvement over its predecessor and it had a soldered heatspreader, allowing for efficient cooling and great overclocking. Even the "locked" version could be overclocked through the multiplier within (quite reasonable) limits.

 

-Apple iPad Pro - [5/10]

Spoiler

A pretty good product, sunk by its price (plus the extra cost of the physical keyboard and the pencil). Buy it if you don't mind the Apple tax and are looking for a very light office machine with an excellent digitizer. Particularly good for rich students. Bad for cheap tinkerers like myself.

249hz monitors don't exist, and there is only one 165hz monitor on the market.

 

And I'll bet you that the 165hz is just a factory overclocked 144hz monitor.


In case the moderators do not ban me as requested, this is a notice that I have left and am not coming back.

well, isn't that like saying 144hz monitors are factory overclocked 120hz ones...? If they can reliably repeat the process I don't think it counts as overclocking.

No because there is overclocking headroom left. Most 144hz displays can be overclocked by the end user to about 165hz. If you bought a 144hz monitor and it wouldn't overclock, then it's likely a pre-overclocked 120hz display etc.

but at 165hz you're most likely hitting the physical limit of dp 1.2 - even if the panel was capable of more you wouldn't be able to run it.
