Monitor refresh rate and PTE

Recommended Posts

I have always used a 60 Hz LCD monitor with PTE. If the GPU and the monitor are capable of higher refresh rates or variable refresh rate (g-sync or freesync) will PTE operate at other than 60 Hz refresh rates? Is there a noticeable difference in pans, zooms, or transitions?

Thanks,
Tom

Hi Tom,

All versions of PTE always use current refresh rate of your monitor. In the preview and in EXE shows.

If you have a special monitor with 120 Hz and Windows was configured to use 120 Hz, PTE will render animations at 120 frames per second.

Don't forget about a good video card to be able render fast these 120 frames per second.

I will definitely buy a faster computer monitor next time. There are so many options now. 4K, refresh rate, response time, HDR, Freesync/G-Sync, IPS, ...

Thanks,
Tom

Is 10 bit HDR something I should consider in my next monitor?

Thanks,

It would be difficult to find a monitor with 10 bit HDR. And I think it's useless for now.

I think you are right. There are 4K 10 bit monitors, but without video HDR support.

I like this AOC monitor. If I buy a monitor now I will try to by one that will be compatible for at least 3 years in the future. It is not true 10 bit because it is 8 bit with temporal dithering.

In the future if AV1 becomes the common video format then maybe AVIF will also become popular.

I realize there are other licensed formats like HEVC/HEIC/HEIF that require additional software installed  at least on Windows 10.

Tom,

When you purchase any monitor make sure that it contains a feature "Flicker free". It's important.

I hope that open formats AV1 and AVIF will become popular. We plan to support both formats in future.

Igor,

Thanks for the information. Still doing research. Some of the BenQ monitors look interesting and are flicker free.

Tom,

I use 3 Dell monitors: U2417H, P2317H, and old P2314H.

Also I plan to try a NEC monitor.
