Jerry Great input. yeah, if you have an invidia graphics card i say that G-sync is an awesome feature. However, i do not think with G-sync can turn on outside of a game unfortunately. I may be wrong but i remember asking around on forum and that was the response I remember getting. Please be aware of this as monitors without g sync are cheaper.
Can i ask a question: Are you saying that turning off the Temporal dithering through Nivida control panel makes your eyes feel better? I never used it with Windows sadly when I had the Nvidia graphics card.
I just makes me feel better knowing that what the graphics card receives and what is then sent to the monitor are more in line. These are what freesync and g-sync are designed to do. Help with screen tearing, which is mainly with games, which i know little about.
This is mainly me rambling but It helps me to get it out verses leaving it in. its all over the place.
A small word on Windows. I understand a substantial number of corporations & federal govt use Windows as a basis but I can not for the life of me get used to it as a daily driver. I mean i want a machine that allows me to do whatever i want to do with data, instances, computing in general and Windows makes me feel like i just ate a lot of carbs, sluggish with an insulin rush but really good and safe. I feel like it inhibits my productivity. It treats a computer like an old vehicle or piece of heavy machinery i feel. Push and play. Not something to dive in deeper with many layers. (i re-read this and it looks sounds so offensive, please do not take it that way. I apologize. )
Concerning AMD and Windows, You are definitively correct I think, dual booted to Windows earlier today and feel better on Linux than Windows with the AMD graphics card. You are very right. I am so surprised by this.
I feel like if the Graphics card market was larger it would be better but it seems to be getting that way slowly. I saw AMD keynote on there plans forward and they are insanely focused on GPU for the Data Center for machines learning use. and it seems like eye comfort for graphics is an afterthought. Its all about FPS and Rendering. if some GPU maker came out with a super great end user experience i think they could take the market by storm. For now i (barely) feel safe with AMD and led tubes that are ballast compatible. Still playing around with the icc profiles for the monitor to find the one that works the best.
