    So a study, presumably aimed at promoting sales of high priced gaming hardware, found a very small improvement at 360Hz... Pull the other one Asus.

    More importantly they are citing an old (old as in before 360hz monitors existed) Nvidia "study" that was done with game / driver telemetry data using the unwitting public as subjects.

    -The study was actually about framerate, not refresh rate.
    -The study did not in any way measure or ask for the framerate but assumed it based on GPU model.
    -The study did not measure things like latency of input peripherals, vsync lag, pixel response time of monitors etc.
    -The study didn't take monitor refresh rate into account, so a hypothetical 240fps on a 60hz monitor was treated the same as 240fps on a 240hz monitor.
    -The study didn't in any way correct for GPU choice often being involuntarily restricted in poorer countries.
    -The study included may casuals whose performance is going to fluctuate wildly anyway due to the presence of BR games in the study.
    -And of course it completely avoided the "problem" that well over 90% of your performance in a game will be due to talent and practice with only a small fraction being dependant on HW.

    It simply correlated assumed FPS to K/D in a small number of multiplayer shooters which Nvidia used to push the narrative that owning a 2080ti makes you a better gamer than if you own a 1060.

    360fps in a modern game ??? What gpu we using as unless you want fps over any quality not going to be hitting those numbers even at 1080p

    Seems I gave them far more credit than they deserved.

    Obligatory "oh noes it's Linus" because some people dislike him. Good info though.

    Linus is right, even simple back of the envelope calculations prove that the diminishing returns are real.
