RE: Strobelight - LightBoost Utility for AMD/ATI and NVIDIA
You can get lightboost to work manually. You need to use EITHER a 3d vision kit with Nvidia hardware (including laptops gpus) or you need to use the NVidia 3d vision emulator (you can find it), along with the INF override (use both--it will be called "3d vision discover" in the control panel test), and then add manually the 1147 or 1149 resolution vertical total. Then you simply hit test. If the monitor led at the lower right turns on and is green, then your lightboost is initialized, then any computer with a 120 hz, 1149 vertical total should cause the monitor to go into lightboost mode.

After testing both LB and benq blur reduction at the same time on the same monitor, BBR wins hands down. Lightboost, on the Asus screens looks MUCH better (besides the color and brightness/gamma locks/tints), but that isn't because of lightboost at all--it's because Asus' tracefree overdrive implementation is MILES better than Benq's AMA. With Benq, you are going to get OD artifacts regardless of if you are testing in LB mode or BBR mode...if you use the 1502 vertical total tweak and 0.5ms persistence (in the Blur busters tool), BBR actually looks better than LB mode in all ways. But Benq's AMA causes overdrive artifacts regardless. And Benq's AMA is pretty bad.

If you move around text on the VG248QE (lightboost), the text is MUCH, MUCH clearer and cleaner.....MILES better. Asus tracefree is hands down the best overdrive implementation.

Gsync isn't as good in the ghosting dept since that doesn't use asus hardware anymore. But regardless, Asus really needs to make their OWN blur reduction tech and use their tracefree and have it tweaked like the 1502 VT (or just have it accelerated scanout......that would be the monitor to get unless u wanted gsync....
