I'm in the process of buying a new monitor. Does anyone play Wot on a 144Hz monitor on a 144Hz refresh rate resolution and 144fps?

 

Is there any visible difference to 60Hz/fps gameplay?

 

(this may be little off topic, but is there a visible difference in some other games, beside WOT)

Got a 144Hz monitor although my system isn't strong enough to get framerates that high while having the game look pretty.

What I can tell, however, is that you'll likely won't consciously perceive much of a difference.

Subconsciously, however, it'll feel much smoother, and will likely remain smoother even if the framerate dips for whatever reason.

The noticable difference between say... 144fps and 70fps are much smaller than the differences between 60fps and 40 fps.

 

That said, isn't the game "hardcapped" to 120fps? :confused:

 

Also, if you're browsing for a new monitor, go online and read the actual manuals for the respective models.

As I've found out earlier this year; most monitors are rather limited in their resolution and refresh rate combinations, along with connectors/cables.

For example, the monitor I got (an Acer one) will only give 144Hz at its native resolution (2560×1440), and only when using either HDMI 2.0 or a DisplayPort cable.

I've also seen an Iiyama 4k monitor, where the specifications claim to support 75Hz, but that was only at low resolutions (720p or something).

 

So please, do be aware that what advertised might be true, it might be twisting the truth a little.

If your system can run 120-144 fps to make a decent usage of the 144 hz then DEFINITELY. I remember when I first got mine and it was so smooth I couldn't believe it (playing a different game, Warframe, on which I ran about 144hz on high settings). Trust me, you won't be able to go back from 144 fps 144hz to 60hz. One of my monitors is 60 hz, the other 144 hz, and I try to not use the 60hz one as much as possible as it just feels weird.

If you have a PC that can output 144 frames per second then it will be worth it. I've been playing World of Tanks 1920x1080 144hz for years and it's great! Problem is going back to 60hz once you've gotten used to 144 :teethhappy:

144hz is alot smoother than 60hz, even if your pc couldnt run it 144fps
Its definetly worth getting if you have the hardware to run games at higher than 60fps

I run WoT at 120Hz with an FPS around 140-190, comparing that to my other system that use an 60Hz screen there ain't that much of a noticeable difference, at least at first, but after a while using the 120Hz screen I noticed that it was really hard going back to 60Hz.

 

A comparison that comes to mind is my moms Skoda that I used as my car just after I took my drivers license, sure it wasn't anything fancy but it worked just fine and I was quite satisfied with that car. Now however I'm used to my own car that have the ability to not spend an hour overtaking someone and as an added bonus it have an AC and I can't imagine going back to a car like that ever again.

I have a 144Hz monitor (1440p IPS 27" G-Sync) and it sure is a nice monitor.

And yes there is a difference between 60fps and 120fps on such a monitor, BUT is it worth in for WoT? I would say no, not for this game alone. The game just isn't that fast paced, or maybe my brains aren't fast paced enough :hiding:

 

However when playing shooter games like Warframe, the difference is really noticeable and I would not go back to 60Hz.

Once you've played on a 144+ Hz monitor then it's hard going back a 60 Hz :teethhappy:

According to many experiments, also done on military fighter pilots, the most trained human eye is able to distinguish an object that appears in a single frame on 230 fps per second

What do i want to say with this?

 

I mean that the difference between a 60hz and a 144hz monitor is abysmal in terms of updating per second.

Clearly you must have a computer that can provide your monitor with 144 images per second

To be sure not to make a wrong purchase you must try to disable the vertical synchronization of your 60hz monitor and see how many FPS you have in the game (of course you will not see more than 60 fps as you have a 60hz monitor ) but the gpu will give more fps on game indicator.

If you reach 144 fps with the vsyn off or you get closer, even exceeding 120 fps , I suggest you buy it and play via DVI cable or cable diplay port possibly with amd freesync function or if you use gpu nvidia with g-sync.


Avoid vga cables or hdmi cables to play 144hz.

 

Remember that you have to unlock the fps of wot that in the settings are blocked at 120 fps, you can do it through the use of appropriate mods present in many mod-packs

 

Remember well that to have 144 fps you must have a computer that can do it, if you play full hd with high settings you will need a decent CPU, not necessarily too modern, but with at least 4 cores and good architecture and a decent frequency , do not forget the RAM and the settings of your motherboard from the correct bios / uefi that can determine a higher speed of the operating system ( which obviously must be 64bit )

 

Also the ram of the pc and the vram (their frequencies and timings) as well as the frequency of your gpu and the energy consumption factor increased can improve the performance.

 

I for example with an old PC like mine Im able to run wot at 65 fps on a 65hz [via dvi cable] monitor in full hd resolution, on hd clients, with the details of the game at maximum.

 

 

win 10 pro 64bit

Thank you guys for your input and advice, much appreciated :) I will read the specs carefully before buying a specific monitor. I do intend to play other new games as they become available or some older ones I havent had time playing (e.g. Witcher 3).

 

I currently play on a sliglty OC'd Dell Inspiron 17R (N7110) Notebook with i5 and ssd, but I am looking into buying a new computer (16gb DDR4, great GPU, i7 or ryzen5, etc.). I've been persuaded to go with a desktop computer (much better bang for my bucks), and leave this one for playing movies/show on the TV, so I'm sure it will be able to run at 144fps (current notebook runs from 60-90fps, SD client, low settings).
