31. Re: Why 60, when flicker-free is ~72Hz? Oct 22, 2003, 20:43 voxel
Actually, you can tell between 60hz and 75hz refresh rate on a monitor because the display is actually going dark and being re-lit again when the gun comes back around.

Frames per second in a game != Hz refresh rate. Take a LCD screen for example, if its 15hz or 60hz, the image is rock solid and you can not tell the difference until fast motion occurs.

If Doom 3 runs at 60 frames per second, the difference between 60 frames per second and 75 frames per second on a 100hz refresh rate monitor, I bet you would have a REALLY hard time seeing the difference.
