I thought since the CRT shader topics are so busy, it may be interesting to keep a thread on which LCD monitors could possibly be capable of CRT like motion. And more specifically qualify for this role when running CRT shaders.
This thread just lists the monitors that qualify by at least having the following attributes “must haves”:
- Hardware Black Frame Insertion (BFI) feature
- Max brightness > 350 cd/m2
- Resolution 1440p or larger
- Technology IPS, OLED or VA (TN not qualified)
- Less than $1000,-
- Release year 2018 or newer
I used the table tool from RTINGS.COM for starters, and these monitors would qualify:
- Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD
- ASUS TUF VG32VQ
- Razer Raptor 27
- ViewSonic VX2758-2KP-MHD
- Gigabyte Aorus FI27Q
- ASUS ROG Strix XG279Q
- ASUS ProArt Display PA278QV
- Gigabyte G32QC
I’m not saying any of these monitors are good or bad, I have zero experience with monitors with hardware BFI, but I’m just listing them as possible candidates for CRT like motion on LCD with enough resolution and brightness to spare for running CRT shaders.
Maybe if people have experiences with any of these monitors they could share, or add monitors that would qualify based on above requirements.
