    The human eye can't see more than 3.7 CPU cores.

    Just the video i wanted to see 😎, 240hz

    That's a really nice piece of laptop

    I have a question, a very special one. Is a PORTABLE MONITOR (13,3 Inches) with 1440p and 60Hz worth it ?

  • Reply Luuucasus May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    I’d prefer 144Hz

    Is it right time buy a laptop or should i wait for a month or two?!

    Hey Jarrod. Ever thought about comparing those cheap SSDs for laptops? Like Crucial BX500 vs Kingston A400 vs Western Digital Green, all in the smallest 120GB configuration. ^^ Just for those cheap drives that people might be interested in.

    Short answet = NO.

    Personally 2k 144hz>1080p 240hz and 4K 60hz

    Don’t forget Fast-Sync

    Since there’s no Optimus on that Aorus, enable fast-sync in the Nvidia Control Panel. This removes tearing above the displays refresh rate.

    Since there’s only 60hz or 240hz options you can make custom profiles on the NV control panel for anything between.

    144hz here for me. I have a hard time seeing much of a difference past 90hz. So no point going past 144hz.

    Think my eyes are broken. 😦

    Very nice video but is your pc in charge when you play?

  • Reply AndreasH900 May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Dont think worth it barely get 100 fps or so in Triple A titles & in league of legends i get average About 200 fps with i9 9900K RTX 2080 will you even notice the diffrence?

  • Reply Anton Avdyushkin May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Jarrod, it's also worth mentioning, that at 240 Hz display you will get more frames per second with V-Sync compared to 144 Hz because of that technology implementation.

  • Reply Daniel Barakat May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Doesn't it reduce screen tearing more than a 144 hz panel when keeping vsync off? From what I've seen, 240 hz looks so buttery even when just scrolling through web pages

    Hey Jarrod I'm looking to buy a new gaming laptop after this summer and I've looked at hidevolution to find a good spec. to be honest I've found that 240hz with rtx2060 were the same price as a 144hz with either rtx2060 or 2070 Max-Q. So what do you recommend? (by the way my spec on hidevolution includes: thermals paste upgrade to grizzly and fuji, 32gb standard 2x16gb ram and at least 1TB of memory in total that could be SSD+HDD or SSD alone). I had in mind the new ROG Strix Scar 3 at a total of 2.004,00€

    I'm good with 144hz

    We sound so spoiled when we say “only 60 times a second”
    Good video too my guy

  • Reply Mr Str May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Well, the human eye can averageing see at 80/100 fps
    It's not the same for everyone and guess with training you can push it a bit but you absolutely can't go above 120 fps.

    It's not bro science, there is solid experiments where you ask someone to fix a screen and put a image for 1/30s and ask if he noticed something, then you up the rate so try to 1/40, 1/50, etc and the results is that people can't notice after 1/80 (average)

    Is a 60 hz laptop display still good? Is there any screen tearing? I am not a competitive gamer and I just game casually and for fun.

    No whorth it

  • Reply SolidWorldGamerz May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    240hz is prettty much overkill and useless as of the moment, unless if you want to burn your hard earned money…

    Is a triton 500 review coming?

  • Reply JiaYu An May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Does 240hz 9m gtg make sense? I thought you need 4ms gtg to match the 240hz refresh rate.

  • Reply uP-Andre May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    144hz has a persistence of 6,9ms. 240hz has a persistence of 4,2ms. 240hz offers almost half input lag of 144hz, if the monitor is a good one. It also doesn´t need Vsync or any other VRR technique, because your screen is refreshing 4 times more than 60hz each second (scanout is 4x faster). When you do fast movements with the mouse (flicks, 180s) the image will have way less distortion and stutter/judder, everything will be clear. For this to happen you need 200fps at least.

    To me 240hz is really noticeable vs 144hz and after using 240hz for a while I can´t go back to 144hz, bue you need to setup things accordingly and you won´t benefit from it on Single Player games, only online shooters like Fortnite, Apex, BO4, Battlefield, Quake, etc.

    It will make you an objectively better player (doesn´t mean you will be good if you are already bad, means you will get your full potential as a player). I beat all my personal records on Quake LG accuracy (54% currently, number 1 in the World on the ranks) and Aim Hero/Kovaaks. That says something.

    So basically if you don´t care about being the best version of you as a player and competing against people with better hardware and less latency than you, stick to 144hz and have fun. If you like to take the best from your talent, get 240hz. Just keep in mind after using 240hz for long time you will never be able to go back to 144hz again, it will be a struggle.

    No thermals this time

  • Reply 风君子 May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Hi did they tell you to not test latency since the panel spec of this 240Hz is at 8ms GTG. Other 144hz IPS is 5ms…IGZO at least when they first appeared on the Aorus Laptops(long long ago) they are infamous for their input lag.

    Thank you for saving up people's money. 144hz seems to be the sweet spot.

  • Reply GeneXiS_X May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Mainly for esports titles like CSGO. The question is can you really notice the difference between 144Hz and 240Hz.

  • Reply RadosnyTv May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Jarrod, switching from 8750h to 9750h is a good choice? I only play csgo so i'm wondering about new cpu for 240hz screen.

  • Reply Avesh Vather May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    Do you think there’s any benefit for media in having a clean multiple of 24fps?

  • Reply Biker Gremling May 24, 2019 at 1:11 pm

    But, but, look at all of those frames!
