How To Choose A Monitor That Suits You

In simple terms, gaming screens can be divided into two categories: “Image quality priority” and “Fluidity priority”. Screens with priority image quality generally use IPS or VA panels. Their advantage is that the viewing angle is often relatively wide. Which angle is yours? It looks very clear, especially since IPS does a very good job. Also, their colors are often ok, wide color gamut (usually sRGB), and native bit color deep colors generally look very comfortable. However, the response time of this type of screen tends to be slightly longer. What does the response time mean? It is whether the pixels on your screen are changing fast or not, whether there is a delay in the picture, the final impact is that the pointer does not follow the hand, and the accuracy is not accurate. This problem will be slightly more obvious on IPS because IPS is difficult to reach 4ms Below, VA can still achieve a super-fast 1ms response time, but the VA screen also has a problem that the screen may have a smear, which will affect your performance. The refresh rate of these screens with image quality priority Basically they are high enough, but not particularly high, almost 144Hz.
You can buy those with a high budget. Generally speaking, this type of screen is more suitable for ordinary people. For example, I don’t play games for ranking. I still want to see the scenery. I still value image quality, but I also If you want to experience the high refresh rate by the way, then this type of screen is more suitable for you. The second category of “fluency” priority screens. This screen is based on the premise of high fluency. For example, Zhuowei XL is a typical “fluency priority” screen, such as a refresh rate. Achieve very, very high, this 240Hz screen will be smoother than ordinary gaming screens, and the response time is very fast.
With only 1ms, you can’t feel any delay. With this screen, it feels like a human-machine unity! Because you do everything with your hands, the monitor will not affect your performance, but to achieve this smoothness, such screens often only use TN panels, so don’t think about color reproduction, and the viewing angle is also relatively Limited. To put it bluntly, the picture quality must be inferior to the previous screens with priority on picture quality. The most suitable group for this type of screen is professional competition players, e-sports enthusiasts, all for winning, all for top scores, if you often play in rankings, Often playing competitive games such as CSGO or OW, you are very important to your performance and status in the game, then you should consider these two types of monitors. When you buy it, you can distinguish between them. Look! Oh, it’s a TN panel. If you respond within 1ms, you will know that this gaming screen is “fluency first.” Sometimes you can see the manufacturer. Some manufacturers do all screens, while others specialize in one type. For example, LG, only do IPS screens, they do monitors mainly to promote the panels, while Zhuowei specializes in TN. All of their screens are “fluency first” type, because they are for the event, except for the above In addition to these, there is a very important point to buy an e-sports screen. It is not the screen itself but your PC hardware. First of all, you don’t need to say that you also know that to enjoy or 240Hz smoothness, you must first run to such a high level. Frame rate, then your PC must not be too bad. For example, a very mainstream i3 machine is more suitable for a 1080p, 144Hz screen. If you want to make good use of the 1080p, 240Hz or 2K, 144Hz display, then it’s best There are i7 (K) level machines. In addition to 240Hz ultra-high refresh rate displays, the CPU is actually the most important, more important than the graphics card. Here is a little knowledge that high U and low display are suitable for low Resolution, low U and high display are suitable for high resolution. It may be a little bit around me. For example, if you have an i3 configuration, it is obvious that the CPU is weak and the graphics card is strong. Then you may have no problem with 2K and 60 frames for the same game, but in 1080p you It can’t run at 144 frames. This is because the burden of graphics under high image quality is very heavy on the graphics card. Relatively speaking, the CPU is irrelevant. On the contrary, the rapid increase in the number of frames of the graphics card at 1080p is followed by a surge in draw calls received by the CPU. , To be straightforward, because every frame of the graphics card needs to be negotiated with the CPU, so after the number of frames is increased, suddenly the CPU needs to process several times more commands than the original, which naturally becomes the bottleneck of the entire system, understand me Mean it! And it’s very coincident that games that benefit from 240Hz monitors tend to be CPU-intensive, such as CSGO and Rainbow Six. These games have high CPU requirements. So if you want to choose a 1080p, 144Hz monitor, then buy a computer. When your CPU is more important than the graphics card. This is a trade-off between picture quality and fluency. Before choosing a screen, you have to consider it carefully. If you understand these main features, you can roughly frame the scope of the gaming screen you want.

About Portable Display

Hello, today I would like to talk to you about the most cost-effective digital product I bought last year, and many people have asked me a product that I am very interested in. I don’t know what brand of inch portable IPS monitor. This monitor was bought last month. When I bought it, I often had to hang up the capture card when I ran the test. A secondary screen was needed for the test. The display used for the test is a Dell UQ inch K screen that takes up too much space, so the cheapest one I found online or the speckled one is estimated to be bad. Then I received the courier and saw that the SF package was still sent. It is also very good. The outer layer of the package is a cardboard box. There is a cut foam inside. There is a plastic bag on the screen. It is packed with a lot of graphics cards. I’m responsible for some graphics cards, not to mention the brand, but also a lot of money. Just take a carton, even if there is no foam in the graphics card, it will shake and shake the display package. Place the support frame MINI on the lower layer.
HDMI cable and power cable The monitor has two Mini HDMI ports for power supply. You can plug in the power cable or use Micro USB. However, there is no Micro USB cable. It is estimated to save costs. Because the cheapest model is bought, it does not support TypeC. At first glance, there is actually a stereo. The SF package sent by the monitor of my sky block is so good. It also brings a stereo. What is more amazing is that there is a paper with good reviews and cashback in it. The competition is too fierce. There are also good reviews and cashback for all pieces of stuff. Of course, to be honest, I don’t like this model very much, so I didn’t get this piece out of the box. We connected it and actually used it. Very surprised, although I bought a spot screen But it seems to be a perfect screen and there are no broken pixels. After all, I don’t have the time to look for them one by one with a magnifying glass. Anyway, I didn’t find any broken pixels. When I bought it, I said it was an NTSC color gamut. It is estimated that the laptop screen was changed. We also actually tested sRGB, NTSC, AdobeRGB, to tell the truth. NTSC color gamut is not very meaningful for computers, because for WINDOWS, it uses a lot of sRGB. I took an XPS notebook and compared it. It took four or five years. It’s a bit aging. It’s probably sRGB, NTSC, AdobeRGB. I looked at the NTSC color gamut of portable monitors. The NTSC color gamut seems to be expensive. But for us, it’s not necessary to record the screen for testing. Sometimes it’s enough to install the system and make the system bright. Why do we require so many color gamuts? Then let’s talk about why this monitor is particularly useful for us. For example, sometimes the main screen of the live broadcast is a Dell UH. The space on the live broadcast table is limited. We often have to install the machine and we can’t put another screen. Sometimes it’s inconvenient to watch the barrage. It’s not convenient to pick up a small monitor and lie flat on the table without taking up space. When using a capture card to run a game, the capture card is all HDMI interfaces, but now the graphics card monitors are a bunch of DP interfaces. It’s so happy to have a monitor with an HDMI interface, and it doesn’t take up space if you put it on the table with a stand. Sometimes you need to deal with the failure of the host and plug it directly into the host with a USB power supply. There is no need to drag the host to the display. It is very convenient to operate and the screen is equipped with audio. Even headphones do not need to be prepared. It is really too convenient. Sometimes the notebook office needs to do complex table data processing. It is very convenient to directly connect to a screen and the notebook basically does not use the DP cable. At this time, what color gamut and color accuracy of HDMI is not necessary at this time. It is easy to use and bright. If you are a user of an ITX case, you often need to carry it out. I think you can buy a TypeC interface so that you can connect one less cable. And the display is given good packaging, which can be reused. The very safety belt is enough to go out and throw it directly into the suitcase. There are even a lot of Hz options. Portable displays with similar specifications are also available. ASUS has also launched but the price is basically higher. The workmanship must be much better, but you are too expensive. In fact, here I want to say that many friends need to figure out when buying digital products. Your own use, of course, doesn’t matter how much money you have, you can just buy what you have. When you have a limited budget, you need to spend all your money in useful places. For example, our purpose is to need a portable and bright display that does not occupy space. So even if I know that this monitor is not from a regular manufacturer, it may not have quality assurance. Generally, even the screen may be modified with a second-hand laptop screen, but it is enough to meet our needs. As for the functions beyond our needs, I think it is good if there is, but if it needs to be spent more money, such as spending more to get a higher color gamut, that is unnecessary money for us. I think most people now buy digital products and can’t figure out their actual needs. Of course, it doesn’t matter how much you have. I just think of you. It’s not inappropriate to go to iTITAN to watch videos online, but if you spend money on places that you don’t use with your budget and your needs are not met, I think this kind of wastes your money. If you think the computer or other digital products you bought meet your needs or have some excess functions, talk about the most cost-effective digital products you bought last year. We will see you next time.
