CHART: Display Persistence versus Motion Blur

This is a new chart that compares motion blur based on display persistence of different displays and technologies. For every 1ms of display persistence, there is 1 pixel of additional motion blur during 1000 pixels/second motion, for frame rates matching Hz. Demo animations include TestUFO Persistence and TestUFO Black Frame Insertion.

    Hey all, im looking forward to purchase a monitor that has the lowest input lag.

    Im not sure if i should be looking at gsync monitor or lightboost or other new technologies. I can compromise color vibrancy, contrast and even micro stuttering to achieve the lowest input lag. What monitor brand/model would best suit my needs? Also is it worth buying the monitor now or are there new monitors or new technologies that will be released upcoming years. I dont mind the budget as well.

      About a year ago i bought the asus VG248QE for the exact reason you stated and it was on sale when i got it too lol.
      Now its still among the best input lag wise but i believe the new BENQ are = or maybe slightly better, i’d have to look it up.

    • Nearly all of the modern ASUS and BENQ 120Hz monitors have extremely low input lag, and the newest ones are consistently so. The BENQ Z-Series is one of the lowest lag monitors too, having the Instant Mode and 1ms GtG response, resulting in very low latency.

      There is a big boom in new monitor technologies (120Hz, 144Hz, LightBoost, GSYNC, ULMB, Turbo240, BENQ Blur Reduction, etc) and so we’ve entered an accelerated upgrade cycle much like for HDD->SSD. So if you have the budge, can afford to do so, I do recommend buying now & buying again later (reselling your old display). Usually monitor upgrade cycles are infrequent, but at the moment, things are accelerated a bit due to the rapid introduction of several new “Better Than 60Hz” monitor technologies.

        Yeah I guess you’re right. At the moment im using a old Samsung 60Hz monitor, transition from 60Hz to 144Hz is going to be splendid. I’m looking forward to purchase “BenQ XL2420Z” unless there’s something new out there that’s worth waiting.

        Looking forward to purchase XL2420Z

    Will the new ROG Asus monitor work with GSYNC and ULMB? like a crt ? sorry im not very good at understanding all the technical stuff about monitors so yeah… reading this stuff is very confusing to me! anyways this is the monitor i am talking about:

    So which category do Sony Bravias using “impulse” mode fall? I recently bought a w900a (super sweet TV!) and impulse seems to look almost as good as my vg248qe with lightboost, but with a slight hint of ghost trails if you look for it

    • Yep — The “Impulse” mode is strobe backlight similar to LightBoost and other strobe backlights found in 120Hz gaming monitors. It does not use interpolation.

      The faint ghost double image is strobe crosstalk (faint remnants of previous refreshes leaking between strobes) which is normal and not noticeable in most gaming material.
