  • 144Hz and higher are great except that only high end graphics cards can actually match the fill rate required, so as not to have judder whilst apparently capable of displaying the resolution at 144Hz. This gets worse with 1440p or higher resolution high refresh monitors, where DisplayPort version also matters.

  • If I have a 4k monitor but set my pc to run at 1080p for a specific game, will that reduces the strain on the GPU that Linus begins talking about at 1.10 in this video?

  • Around 2:50, you use competition as a pro point on why a high refresh rate is better. Really? I should be thinking about a high refresh rate because it'll make me pwn someone? You didn't think to explain it with a point like, "The image will be smoother and potentially provide a more immersive gaming experience"?

    Points like the one you made are why the gaming community is trash. People don't play games for fun anymore, they play games to prove digital dominance over someone else. Games aren't made as artworks anymore, it's all the same rehashed Call of Duty and Battlefield franchises in which there's no brain power required. See someone, shoot, win, repeat.

    Damn, LTT. You're sprinkling spoiled spices onto the gaming community.

  • Hi all. A WARNING – Acer VG0 Nitro series "gaming monitors" here in Australia anyway do not have display port and DO NOT have 144hz. Advertising is totally misleading. The Nitro VGO series appear to be 60hz at all frame rates exept native 1980 x where a flickery and poor brightness 75hz is possible. Even the unsigned incomplete drivers "vg270" clearly have support for only upto 75hz at 1980. All others 60 hz ….
