BenQ EX3501R frame skipping with AMD and Nvidia GPUs (WHL #33F6)
Another quick follow-up on the BenQ EX3501R (yawn).
“sss” noted that there’s an issue with their Nvidia GPU and regular 100 Hz operation, FreeSync most likely isn’t the issue here (greedy bastards). (S)He’s having missing frames leading to e.g. jerky mouse movements, which can also be detected by running the UFO test and taking a picture.
Well, so I did.
Radeon 380, 100 Hz, FreeSync enabled but not active in plain Windows mode. Test needed Chrome browser for a) performance (FF you laggy bitch) and b) V-Sync reasons, as FF cannot get its shit together, especially in full screen mode. I mean flashing rectangular cells in a regular interval is pretty much beyond today’s technology, isn’t it…
Glitch in the software aside (always happens at the same spot, see pictures; clearly visible with the naked eye as well), that test didn’t skip any frames for me. Camera says 0.8s of exposure time, which pretty much nails it at 80 to 81 lit cells out of a total of 100.
Works for me, sorry pal!
For comparison: This is a recommended review linked by sss, clearly showing the issue on Nvidia cards:
