Hi guys! I collected myself a new computer and the question arose about the monitor more precisely about its frequency (this is not response time). After two weeks of experiences, I came to some conclusions that I would like to share with you. My old beast (notebook) HP Pavilion: Intel HD 520 (1024mb), Nvidia 940m (2048mb) Intel core i7-6500u 16gb ddr3 2tb 5400 rpm max 1920: 1080 HD (in CS 800: 600) developer "1" fps_max "101" rate "25000" cl_cmdrate "101" cl_updaterate "101" ex_interp "0.1" To view the FPS in the game, you can use the net_graph command or the legendary FRAPS. I can raise FPS override "1" developer "1" fps_max "150" It gives me more comfort (the dynamics of the game are more pleasant), but as you know the increase in FPS gives an additional load graphics adapter in consequence of which the CPU temperature rises. This notebook was bought refurbished and I found by serial number when bought for the first time and the reason for the return. The reason is overheating and apparently restored not very good After games such as fallout3, stalker and even HL2, I have to disassemble the computer and apply thermal grease as it dries completely (burn out). With FPS> 100, I get 85 degrees which is absolutely abnormal for CS16. therefore I play 100 but so my cooling fan does not shut up. Distracted sorry, back to the monitor =) My new beast (desktop): Nvidia gtx1060 (3gb) Intel Core i5-7400 3.5 16gb ddr4 (2400) ssd 250gb and sata 1 tb 7200 rpm Max 1920: 1080 HD 60Hz (in CS 800: 600) FPS 150 everything is fine, of course there was a slight discomfort since the new screen, new keyboard, etc. but in a week I got used to. Took to test the monitor at 144Hz and how do you think that has changed? NOTHING! I changed fps spent various tests, but in CS16 I did not notice any improvements or any deterioration other than the visual image, but this is natural because another screen is a different matrix. I distributed both HS and distributed as I received them and receive. My skill has not changed, and it didn’t become easier to play. A week later, I returned to 60. That's where the miracles began =)). I did not feel much discomfort immediately, but I felt Sometimes in the game it seemed to me that I was lagging, but then looking through the dem and stream, I saw that the FPS did not fall. Findings: The update frequency does not have a special impact on the gameplay, therefore you should not buy a 144Hz monitor for the sake of an advantage whose time is usually milliseconds. Basically, the update frequency affects the player's perception of the gameplay. It turns out that using a monitor with a refresh rate of 144 Hz is worth it solely to make it more comfortable feel in the game and get more pleasure from it, because of particular practical benefits in acquiring such there is no monitor. Well, I will add a monitor of 144 Hz with FPS set = 200 gives 180 190, the screen is updated 2 times faster, the picture higher quality and much less strained eyes. 144 in CS16 will not give advantages over a player like you. Only deceivers-marketers can argue that they are interested only in sales and of course "sofa experts" are people who sit on couches and stare at TV and also leave comments on all posts in social networks because they think they know everything and in fact even 10 books in life is not mastered. In this situation, they use the iron argument that all cyber sportsmen require monitors from organizers 144. Firstly, not all, and secondly, the answer is obvious: they play on that frequency everywhere - at home, at work and in other tournaments. For a long time, they got used to 144. At a lower frequency, they simply will not be able to realize their potential and will feel strong discomfort. They will feel that everything slows down and lags. p.s. I do not earn much, treatment is expensive, my vision is good, so I will buy a monitor for 144 a little later. This is all solely my point of view and only for CS16 is not for CSGO. Thanks for attention!
