RE: Strobelight - LightBoost Utility for AMD/ATI and NVIDIA
Hi ToastyX,

To answer your questions:

I can change between a single monitor (GL2460) and the Surround display (3 VG248QE 5760 x 1080 @ 120HZ strobed) in the Windows 7 resolution menu, there is s drop down list there for multiple monitors.

The strobing options are not greyed out, they just don't do anything. Later I found out that when I get the monitors to work with lightboost then the options do work.


I spent a few good hours testing all possibilities and if I boot Windows straight into the Surround setup or if I change from the single (4th) monitor to the Surround setup the monitors don't go into "Lightboost mode". If I boot Windows into a single Lightboost compatible monitor@120hz strobed, or change from the 4th monitor into one of them then it's all good and Lightboost starts working immediately.

What I do to get Lightboost to work on Surround is:
- Change to the Surround setup or boot with the PC with Surround already on (At this point I'm at 5760 x 1080 @ 120hz strobed but Lightboost isn't working)
- I press Ctrl+Alt+S (or+R) to change to a single monitor within the Lightboost compatible monitors and at this point Lightboost starts to work.
- I press Ctrl+Alt+S (or+R) to change the display back to Surround and Lightboost stays on and now everything is working fine.

It works fine ingame, there is no motion blur and the action is very smooth at 120 FPS.

Out of curiosity, gaming at 120 FPS and HZ how much input lag would be added by a strobed resolution?
