1920x1080 Monitor that runs at 30HZ-Does it exist?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I want to run P3D V4 a 30Hz with v sync and fps locked at 30. I have seen many videos saying this trick removes micro stutters, however, all the monitors they use are 4K. I could probably fit a 4K monitor on my desk, but it would hurt my eyes being so close. Is there a monitor which is 1920x1080 with can run at 30HZ for flight swimming and I can change it to 60HZ when doing other things.

 

Thanks, Ollie.

Multiple HD tv’s are able to run at 30/25/24/23 hertz...

Till last week I used two 32” and ond 40” at 25 hertz.

At this moment I am replacing them for two 43” and one 55” which also ate going to run at around 25 hertz ( might be 23/24 )...

Not saying there isn't one but I have never came across a 1080P monitor that would run at 30hz.  I guess I'm kind of confused about fitting a 4K monitor on your desk and hurting your eyes.  What size are u thinking?  Many people run 40-55 inch 4K TV's and sit very close with no issues.  U can also go with a smaller 4K pc monitor.  Maybe Ray will stop in.  He uses a 32 inch 4K BenQ monitor with great success.  That would be a good size for a desk  and easier on the eyes then a bigger TV.

Awesome so could I plug in a spare TV monitor which is 4K and would it run?

Depends on the TV.  U need to make sure it supports Chroma 4.4.4 or else your small text will look discolored or blurred.

I always thought sitting close to a large screen for a prolonged period of time damaged your eyes. The same as when you are a kid your parents tell you not to sit very close to the TV. I sit about 24 inches away from my monitor so hopefully, if I got one it wouldn't hurt my eyes.

If the TV doesn't work can you recommend a good 4K monitor under £500 or is that impossible for that price.

If u are worried about eye strain I would stay 40 inches or under.  U first need to decide what size u want then explore what options are available.  My 28 inch Samsung 4K monitor was $400.  It is a very good monitor but honestly a little small for my taste.  My 43 inch Samsung 4K TV was $400 and they make the same model in a 40 inch version.  Rays 32 inch BenQ would be a good option but they are a little more pricey.

The "Samsung U28E590D 28-Inch LCD/LED Monitor - Black"  is £199 on Amazon, which sounds like a decent price. How do you tell if a monitor can downclock to 30Hz? So I can get smooth P3D. I get amazing fps with my GTX 1060 6GB but it's those pesky little stutters! Hopefully, 30Hz, 4K monitor with V sync will fix it 🙂

I was thinking about maybe getting the BenQ 32" 4K monitor.

I currently run a Gigabyte 1080Ti with 11gb DDR5 in to an HP32Q @ 60hz and 2560x1440 resolution, the image quality is excellent and I get excellent frame rates, even in some very demanding airport environments with lots of AI traffic and high settings in P3D.

Would my performance take a hit with a monitor like Ray's BenQ..??

With a 1080ti and going from 1440P to 4K I would think the performance hit would be minimal.  I had no issues running 4K with my single 1080ti.  Even my old 980 handled it quite well.  This was P3D only.  In Xplane for some reason I was getting far worse performance in 4K.

That is the exact monitor I have.  And yes it will run fine at 30hz.  U just have to create a custom resolution for it in the control panel.

Hey thanks for the info, I think I may just go for it. I found a great price on the BenQ Model EW370OU, sub $500, just barely but still pretty good for monitors in this class

Would I need a GPU upgrade for 4K, maybe a GTX 1080 ti?

A 1060 will run it but all depends on your graphics settings.  Good thing about for 4K on a 28 inch monitor is u can use very low AA.  I ran 4K with a GTX980 and it was fine.

Ok, so what I'll do is probably get a GTX 1080 or a 1080 ti then get the 4K monitor.

Thanks for the help, Ollie.

I was thinking about one of those as well, but now we're talking some serious money.. lol

That's also good info on the AA settings in P3D, thanks for mentioning it.

I have most of my graphics sliders and settings at very high or max and I still get great performance, but it's nice to know I can probably turn some of those down with a 4K monitor and still get great image quality and performance.

The BenQ is an excellent monitor that can also run at 30Hz as well as the normal 60Hz. I can achieve frame rates around 30+ on the ground and locked to 60 when airborne even with UTLive settings around 80%.

The 1080Ti is a great card. No need for the 2080Ti which is just an expensive white elephant if you only run P3D as it can’t currently take advantage of Ray tracing.

Although the BenQ is expensive (£640 UK) you’ll keep it longer than your graphics card or CPU. Good long-term investment.

Thanks for the info Ray. I ordered the BenQ EW370OU earlier today, got it direct from BenQ USA in Costa Mesa California (Ebay sale) for $499 delivered, which seems like a pretty good deal compared to the 640 UK Pounds you mentioned. It should be here next week.

I can’t find that monitor. Are you sure of the model number? Is it really a 37”?

Sorry Ray, my mistake... It's a model EW327OU, a 32" monitor.
