When it comes to video games, details and performance, I can normally see things most others can't, especially in terms of framerate. Yesterday, I've upgraded from a 60hz IPS monitor to a 144hz TN panel, but the box only came with a Single Link DVI-D cable, which only supports 60hz. Even with only 60hz, I could immediately tell the difference in my new 1ms response time. After a day of using it like this, I came across a dual link DVI cable instead. I swapped the cords, set my refresh rate and... I don't notice anything different. I even launched a few games (DOOM 2016, Dishonored 2, Hitman 2016), and even when the framerate is exceeding 100FPS with Vsync OFF and no frame limit applied, I cannot notice a difference between the look OR feel of my gameplay, compared to my 60hz experience with the monitor a day prior. Is this normal? I'm not crazy, am I?
My monitor is a 3D Acer GN246HL Bbid 24 inch 1080p display.
My mouse is a cheap Letton S1 gaming mouse, and my soon-to-be-replaced keyboard, is still, at the moment, a standard membrane keyboard.
The rest of my specs shouldn't matter in this instance, as my performance is perfectly fine. It's my perception that I'm having problems with.
What are your experiences with switching to 144hz, if I may ask?
