Many who are new to computer gaming and the various technologies involved have often asked what is the absolute best refresh rate for a gaming monitor. The answer varies depending on what brand you purchase. Some people will say that the fastest is the Turbo Display. Others may say the Ultrafast Display.
What is the best refresh rate for a high-end gaming monitor? That answer depends on what game you are playing. There are many games that have different settings and images output. For example, some games will demand your PC to be up to date with the latest updates before they can be played. When there are new updates available, your computer must be able to recognize it and run the update quickly. Without this ability, you experience lagging or even errors when playing.
If you want the absolute best frame rate possible then you should get a gaming notebook with a Quadrant panel that has a high refresh rate. These panels are designed to display extremely clear and crisp images at full HD. The panel’s refresh rate is determined by the manufacturer and their specifications. You can find out what they are by contacting the vendor or making a phone call to their website. In short, the higher the refresh rate, the clearer and sharper the images on your screen.
Gaming Notebook Feature:
How is this feature different from a “gaming” notebook? In other words, do all notebooks have to have a high-end gaming monitor with a high refresh rate? No, not necessarily. A laptop can have a high-end gaming monitor if the manufacturer does not specify a certain refresh rate.
You see, many gaming notebooks have a very limited ability to refresh. Manufacturers simply don’t have the resources to deliver a game-changing frame rate to each and every one of their notebooks. It just doesn’t make sense. However, there are several manufacturers that have come up with new ways to increase the refresh rate of their displays. This is done by increasing the pixel density, increasing the LPI (letter resolution), and/or improving the flow rate. Here is a quick description of each of these elements:

Many of today’s notebooks offer a standard rate of 120hz refresh rate. While this is fine for regular uses, it is certainly not ideal when trying to play some of the more intricate games that are available on today’s market. Some of the games require a much faster game play speed in order to be truly enjoyable. A high-end gaming monitor that has a 120hz refresh rate will be able to handle these games at full tilt with no problems.
The second thing to look for in a gaming monitor is the display panel’s response time. In other words, you want your screen to be responsive to your movements so that you can play for hours on end without getting tired or becoming frustrated. The average response time for a gaming notebook screen is somewhere around 7ms. While it may not sound like a lot, if you are playing an intricate game with lots of moving parts, you will be pleasantly surprised at how long the game will actually run for.
CRT Monitor Features
Last but certainly not least, you will want to find a CRT monitor with an adjustable horizontal refresh rate and vertical refresh rate. You will need to be able to tweak the monitor so that it is running at this optimal refresh rate for gaming. The most common CRT monitors have a very fast horizontal refresh rate and a very slow vertical refresh rate. If you are going to be playing the majority of your games on a laptop, you won’t need a fast horizontal refresh rate because the action will go quickly across the screen. However, if you play your games on a desktop, the speed at which the action moves across the screen will determine if you actually enjoy the game or not.
