hello there

recently I got a new TV (a 65"" curved Samsung TV Series 6 a samsung un65ku6500fxzx) and now when I run SOME games on it, it runs at slow motion no matter what config I select (either AA off and shadows off, I´ve tried with 1080p and other higher or lower settings, all the same)

Funny thing all games runs perfectly fine in my 1080p PC Monitor at max settings (1080p)

However, MOST (if not almost all) of my other games runs well on the new TV at full speed.

When I activate the option for "Gaming Mode" it runs slighty better I admit, but don´t fix the trouble

these are my specs:

Win 10 x 64 bits
i7 4790K @ 4.0 Ghtz
GTX 1070 8 GB
16 GB RAM

Drivers are up to date.

What do you think it can be? what can I do? do you think it´s the HDMI cable and I need a HDMI 2.0??

thanks in advance

Could be showing the same frame twice. Ie. running at "120hz" but rendering 2 of the same frame

some games have refresh rate glitches when you use a tv as a monitor.

This is not a "could be" thing. A TV with an advertised frame rate of 120 is always going to output 120 frames per second and it will either use 2 or the same frame or it will use frame interpolation, depending on your settings. That doesn't cause slowdown.

TC, can you explain what the issue looks like exactly?

Did you disable frame interpolation? It's usually called something like 'smooth motion' or 'motion flow.'
It's basically the TV looking at two frames and using that data to make up a frame to insert between the two to give the illusion of a higher framerate. I hate it because it causes a horrendous amount of lag.

I don't even like it for TV or Movies. It might just be that I'm too used to watching them at 24fps, but the ultra smooth motion looks weird and distracting to me.

Makes it look like a soap opera, but I know what you mean. Games 60fps, movies 30fps, well 24fps.

I actually get agitated watching TVs that have frame interpolation enabled. On my Vizio M60 the frame interpolation option is offered as a sliding scale and I tried checking out the lowest setting without disabling it to see if that was tolerable but even that just made me uncomfortable to watch.

Anyway, leaving it off all the time means I don't have to change my settings for when I play games, so that's convenient.
