    Monitor Specs Questions


    I'm thinking of replacing a 1K monitor with 2K and would like whatever advice anybody can provide.

    1. Most manufacturers have their own "technology" like Crystalclear, SmartContrast, SmartImage, SplendidPlus Video Intelligence Technology, AQCOLOR, Brightness Intelligence, UltraSharp, and PremierColor. Are these concepts marketing nonsense, or serious improvements on basic specifications like color gamut, brightness (nits), contrast ratio, panel type, 8/10 bit-color, whatever else?

    2. Is response time of 14ms (typical)/6ms (GtG) acceptable? If a specification is given for only GtG, is the "typical" time always greater than that?

    3. What technology/specification determines 16.7M vs. 1.07B colors?

    4. All else being equal, which would be better: 300 brightness/1.07B colors, or 350 brightness/16.7 million colors?

    5. More monitors than I suspected have built-in speakers, but they're all 2-3 watts per speaker. As a practical matter, are these things usable? I have a Dell soundbar at 5w per. Basically that's OK. Sometimes the sound could be louder, but that's probably a function of the source, not the speaker.

    Thank you.

    :)

    Overclocking / Undervolting guide for Vega 56 or 64?

    Here's a quick laundry list:

    List of software to use for overclocking and testing
    Examples:
    Wattman (and how to find and use it, like an overview, including profiles)
    Unigine Valley or Heaven (use this for quick testing while changing settings in Wattman and checking for stability / artifacts) ...just suggesting this
    How to monitor cores / mem speeds and temps during testing (I've seen screen overlays, and others using GPUz)

    Step-by step overclocking in Wattman
    Fan speeds
    Power limit
    Temp limit
    Voltages
    Core speeds
    Memory speeds

    What determines or restricts monitor specs?


    If the monitor is the Samsung S27E390HS listed in your specs, its native resolution is 1920X1080. Both the HDMI and DB15 (VGA) ports will support that.

    You'd need a different monitor to get more pixels.

    What determines or restricts monitor specs?


    That 280X Graphics card is fine for whatever you want to do the only drawback i see for gaming is 3GB RAM, out of the 5 models listed under this 280X the only difference in specs is clock speeds, not sure which is yours. You have up to 4096 X 2160 Pixel for DisplayPort Resolution, enough for that Samsung . http://www.sapphiretech.com/productd...05911&lang=eng

    That Samsung you want to buy is 2K listed specs not 4K. Either purchase of a new Card or a Monitor is going to be around the same cost, give or take a hundred bucks. What was the model of Samsung you have now ?
    130cm of space going to leave you with 45cm left of space, not much space with this monitor on a desk,34" monitor. Look into 27" monitors in 2K or 4K.
