Amazing video idea!! The follow up video is needed!!
Linus if you're a true gamer you will summon Shroud from the Madrina mountains of delicious coffee and ask him to be slow motion captured both in game, and wrist form!
are there diminishing returns for higher refresh rates?
yea i think gamers who are committed to their hobby are likely to buy better monitors and pc's and there comes those stats… better players are on those better gear than average 60hz monitors maybe..
10:34 see linus's fave 😂
Get Shroud in next video 😀
Please use an awp next time
Opponent was always running from left to right, I always had more problems in moving mouse and aiming from left to right,maybe try out the same with opponent running from right to left?
I'm sure that how used the players are to play in those refresh rates matters a lot. You should get people who are used to play in different refresh rates and see how they behave when changing the hz they are playing at.
Should have used an awp.
Get shroud to do this experiment
so in fact, usingt a 240 hz display = cheating. 😛
Laughable and mental!
One potential problem is that the 240hrtz test was done later and they subjects may have become more skilled I think that half the subjects should have done 240hrtz first
Also the sample size should have been larger
8:01 This is where you got all your science wrong. 1ms indicates the time for a pixel to switch its color (usually grey-to-grey), NOT the input response time of the monitor. It plays literally no role in humans' reaction time.
Could you please do the test with a pro player? And with 144hz monitor in addition to the 60hz and 240hz ? You could use reaction time test from human benchmark site as an addition.
yes please get shroud to this
There's still the fact that you need to be able to squeeze out the same or close to the same FPS to match the refresh rate, it's still pretty much pointless to have a 240Hz monitor if you only get 60 fps in the games you play.
Now I haven't read the article from Nvidia, but should we really trust a hardware company telling us better hardware makes you a better gamer?
This is an unexpected crossover
Every player is different. So this test it will be more truthful if a global and a silver do the test
