60 vs. 85 Hz Monitor refresh rate?

Post by Doug B » Sun Feb 04, 2018 2:59 am

I currently have a 22" LCD LG monitor with a 60 Hz. screen refresh rate. I saw an ad for a Viewsonic 24" LCD monitor with an 85 HZ screen refresh rate.

Would most people notice any difference?

Thanks

Not if their video card doesn't support 85Hz.

Only viewing very fast moving images. For example, in games.
