Why do people brag about 300+fps when the eye can only see 60fps?

#11Paradiddle_PetePosted 12/6/2009 10:59:27 PM
The human eye 60 fps theory has been busted. I believe a correct term for this thread is "Why do people not brag about 300+ fps when some monitors only go as high as 60 fps?"

Ok, just to end this dumb crap:

1. The human eye can only see 12-14 (yes, twelve!!) different frames per second. Any framerate higher than this gives the human eye the illusion of a moving picture. From about 30 fps and higher, we get the illusion of a smooth animation, below that its more like a diashow.

2. a FPS higher than the maximum Hz of your monitor is pointless.

3. The human eye IS able to see a difference between 60 fps and 85 fps, it is even a huge difference, just test it if you have a screen that supports Hz above 60.

4. Stop calling rushing "gauntlet" come on, how stupid is that. Gauntlet, lol.

humans are not computers, they dont see in 'frames'. as a computer renders more and more frames per second, everything in the game gets smoother and smoother, this effect doesnt just stop at an arbitruary point. that being said, most lcd monitors get screen tearing above 60 fps. crts have high refresh rates so screen tearing is hardly an issue and 300 fps is fine. newer HDTVs also run at a high refresh rate, usually 120hz

Hey! Me too!
I also came in here to insult the TC's knowledge of framerate but I think the other people did just fine.

newer HDTVs have been running at 200hz for some time just fyi.

Actually the human eye can only detect even less than 60 fps . . .

I agree except for your "30 fps or higher"

Movies are done at 24 fps, and they look very smooth tbh.

But yes you are correct in every other point, fricken gauntlet.

Movies have Motion Blur to make up for their frame rate.
