Fabrice Roux Posted July 28, 2006 Report Share Posted July 28, 2006 The french PC hardware testing site www.hardware.fr just posted a nice article on the rendering lag of LCD in comparison to CRT. The official translated version is online. Here is the Google translated version of the page. I'll add the official translated version when it will be released. Vincent Alzieu their screen and printers specialist received some emails stating that LCD were laging behind CRT. He ran some tests in clone mode... the lag varies from screen to screen. After the screen test he includes the full rendering chain. (mouse, CPU, GPU and screen) His final scenarii are: - a good mouse + CRT + VSYNC OFF gives a lag of 6ms. - an average mouse + average LCD + VSYNC OFF gives a lag of 48.7ms. (3 frames delay @ 60Hz) - a slow mouse + slow LCD + VSYNC ON gives a lag of 85 ms. (5 frames delay @ 60Hz) When you add the DSL lag... you understand how easy it is to turn Average Joe into that under *pick popular FPS game*. EDIT: added the link to the translated article.
