P3D 30hz monitor

Recommended Posts

Since we can not use the 1/2 vsync option in P3D as we did in FSX I am looking for a native stable 30hz monitor.  I am looking into the 34 inch widescreen monitors.  I did buy an Asus Rog 34 inch G sync monitor but immediately returned it for a couple reasons.  Even though G sync is advertised to work from 30 FPS and up I found that if u cant maintain at least 40 FPS in the sim there was horrible stuttering and screen flickering.  Also when enabling G sync to work in windowed mode every time u move the mouse the monitor would kick out of G sync mode causing bad stutters..  And lastly this monitor would not run at 30hz no matter what I tried.  Long story short this monitor was a $1100 mistake to purchase.  So anyone looking into G sync or Free sync be very careful.  Now that my rant is over can anyone recommend a 34 inch widescreen that will support 30hz native?

My 42-in Samsung is happy at 30 Hz.  I have always avoided the G-Sync marketing from Nvidia and find that the move to 4K display was the one most significant hardware update I've ever made (of course many hardware improvement were required to get here).  I am perfectly happy with my P3Dv4 running at 20 fps locked and the 4K display through a GTX980Ti on a 30 Hz screen.  No VSync, G-Sync or even NI required.  Looks great at 2xMSAA.  Mileage varies of course.

Do you run at 20fps or 30 lol. I would think 20 would cause stutters

I run at 20 fps, although it made a larger difference in v3 than v4.  I do not have any stutters, although a friend of mine prefers 24.  There is no downside to the lower frame rate, it means the rendering engine has that much longer for each frame so when stuff happens like a sky full of overcast and complex scenery there is less impact on frame rate. Also, there is a slight advantage to long frames.  I have a modified frame rate display that shows low, avg and high numbers and I get more excited when I see the low number increase than I am with high averages. The display refresh rate is 30 Hz which on a LCD display does not have any flicker if that is what you were asking.

Before you go for a 30Hz monitor, try fast sync. Although it's only supposed to work at very high frame rates, quite a few people on the Avsim forums (me included) are having great success with it. Unlike other forms of vsync, it doesn't limit your frame rates and seems to have very little performance penalty. The big plus is that it won't cost you anything to try it!
