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.
