    LG 32EP950 OLED monitor initial impressions

    I have a question about refresh rate support. In the LTT video it showed it supporting out-of-the-box 24Hz, 48Hz, and 60Hz. Does it by chance support 50Hz if you use a custom resolution and, if so, does it support it without any frame-drops or the like? (if you aren't aware, the vast majority...

    LG 48CX

    I mentioned at the top of the previous page that John from Digital Foundry found that BFI + VRR worked on his CX's latest firmware at least from the Xbox Series X, but only when Dolby Vision was enabled: https://hardforum.com/threads/lg-48cx.1991077/page-197#post-1045180420 There was no...

    I let this thread stew a little bit, but on my return I'm kind of disappointed now the thread as a whole seems to have doubled on HDR and isn't even willing to experiment to see if this BFI + VRR thing even works let alone if it's useful. I find it very interesting that, with high-refresh...

    LG 48CX

    Whoops I'm a derp and forgot to mention that I was mainly thinking that, possibly through EDID trickery, we could get VRR + BFI working withOUT HDR. But even with having to rely on HDR being enabled, to completely write-off the idea of VRR+BFI just because of the reduction in brightness seems...

    LG 48CX

    At least with the Xbox Series X, John from Digital Foundry says that firmware 04.30.10 on his CX allowed him to enable VRR and black frame insertion at the same time and, better yet, it worked. However, he was only able to do so when Dolby Vision was enabled (not even HDR10), so he thinks this...

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    The existence of embedded DisplayPort means that DisplayPort should continue being used at least internally regardless of external display support. It's my impression that pretty much all modern consumer electronics with an embedded screen of sufficiently high resolution and/or refresh rate use...

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    Wait, so something non-standard like 56Hz does work via a custom resolution, it just has to be no greater than 60Hz? EDIT: Erm, I just realized that, in Linus' video where it shows the stock refresh rate options, it only shows 24Hz, 48Hz, and 60Hz - not 50Hz, which is a pretty important one for...

    Well heck, do custom refresh rates even work at all, like a refresh rate less than 60Hz? (50Hz, 48Hz, weird in-between rates like 56Hz, etc)

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    Two questions: 1. It's my impression that, at such high resolutions, one has to use "DisplayID" timings via CRU. Did you do that and, if not, could you give it a whirl? 2. Did you try more standard refresh rates like 75Hz, and not just less-standard ones like 62Hz? I say this because I...

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    Assuming that those videos were taken by you yourself, are you able to run a custom resolution that has a refresh higher than 60Hz on the monitor? (you may have to use CRU - custom resolution utility)

    Do you already own the C1's? I ask because the Aorus FO48U could be a work-around for that issue due to having both DisplayPort and HDMI (technically its 24Gbps HDMI bandwidth is less than the C1's 40Gbps, but it supports DSC anyway which your 3080 supports; furthermore your 3080 has 3x...

    Gigabyte AORUS FO48U 48" 4K 120Hz OLED

    If it's with text rather than raster images, then you may simply need to change the cleartype setting, such as setting it to greyscale and/or just flat-out disabling it. I find using the program "BetterClearTypeTuner" to be the easiest way to achieve all of this...

    OLED MONITORS!!!!!

    I'm kind of annoyed that they didn't even try to see if the panel can handle higher refresh rates via a custom EDID, especially since actual professional workstation stuff tends to be binned better, no? I mean, my sister had a Westmere-powered HP 8440p Elitebook with a Quadro NVS 3100M and we...

    LG 48CX

    There's my previously-mentioned insane idea of using the display in portrait, setting cleartype to greyscale (or turning it off altogether), and then using something like fancyzones or Win11's built-in equivalent to only use the bottom half of the screen combined with a black desktop background...

    On an E9 with that setting turned off, the fireworks never show up and this is all that appears (apologies for vertical video syndrome, the TV is actually owned by a family friend): https://ttm.sh/FxF.mp4 (video will be automatically deleted in a few months)
