More brightness = better performance?

Hello there, today I was playing some casual minecraft. When I was looking at my fps and it was around 500. I was like, wow that's wierd. I usually get around 700+, so I decided to tweak some settings and boom 600 fps. Still didn't feel the same. All of a sudden the sun shined thru my blinds and it made the screen harder to see. So I put the brightness on the monitor to 100 and wow. Dramatic difference. I get 700+, but the thing is, the games feel different. Overall my whole pc feels, more, better.

CPU - i7-4790k

GPU - MSI 980 Ti

Its probably all just coincidence unless you are going to do some scientific tests.

Yeah I don't know, what I was thinking was maybe the gpu was using more power to brighten the screen? and that made it better somehow :D

I agree. No way it can affect the game.

i5 6600k and GTX 1070 but I play 1600-900. 1440p BABY!

Still, don't put too much faith in my buying decisions. xD

No, screen brightness is independent of the GPU. If it were in game it would affect it tho.

I'm just going to guess trolling, but no - screen brightness is on the monitor only, the GPU is unaware.

 

High screen brightness actually decreases the color accuracy of monitors (and the ability to correct it) so if you're running calibrated you'll drop down to 75% brightness or less.

Java is strange, dont question it.

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

 

The original LAN PC build log! (Old, dead and replaced by The Toaster Project & 5.0)

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
