If you were a competitive gamer, you'd have more awareness about Nvidia's Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) than a squirrel has about its acorn stash. For the unversed ULMB is like a magical spell that banishes motion blur from the gaming realm. Now, at Computex 2023, the brand has shown the world its G-SYNC Ultra Low Motion Blur 2 (ULMB 2).
With over 1000 Hz of motion clarity, Nvidia claims ULMB 2 enhances the clarity and fluidity of high-definition moving images through their innovative backlight strobing technology, taking the visual experience a notch higher.
ULMB 2 ensures that the backlight turns off when frames change, resulting in smoother transitions. Furthermore, Nvidia's ULMB 2 technology, combined with G-Sync, manages response time to counter any negative impact caused by the rolling scanout of pixels on the crystal layer.
According to Nvidia, G-Sync's vertical dependent overdrive feature enables pixels farther from the pulse to settle at a regular speed, while pixels near the pulse can be driven more aggressively. This technique ensures that most of the screen reaches the optimal transition point when the backlight pulses, even at the maximum refresh rate. In simpler terms, it's like why did the pixels enroll in a G-Sync class? To master the art of synchronized backlight pulsing with a touch of overdrive!
If you're eager to experience Nvidia ULMB 2, the good news is that it's just a firmware update for your gaming monitors. Nvidia has already introduced ULMB 2 at Computex 2023, including compatibility with select Acer Predator and ASUS ROG Swift monitors.
