The patterns make me dizzy too - and I don't normally suffer from those problems. I play a lot of games where people get motion sick, and have never suffered from that. I do sometimes get motion sick from gaming at low framerates though, but this is 60fps.
I think the issue is that it's constantly moving and you have to keep moving your eyes back and forth over it. I asked Mark a while back if we could have the option to reverse the pattern direction so I'm no longer dizzy after using them.
As for the speed, the default 960 pixels/second is not that quick. Gaming will regularly meet or exceed the speed of the 1920 px/s pattern.
With my TV set to "Clear Plus" MotionFlow, the map is still perfectly clear at 3000px/s. Unfortunately does not only
use backlight scanning, it's combined with interpolation so it is unsuitable for gaming.
With MotionFlow disabled, which is equivalent to an OLED that does not use black frame insertion or scanning, I can read the text but motion is blurred even at 240 px/s due to retinal persistence.
With interpolation alone, which the OLEDs offer, it's sharp up to about 480px/s. But interpolation is unsuitable for gaming, and frankly while I am ok with it being used on LCDs, I'm not ok with it on OLED which should not require it - though it may still be necessary for 24p which is so low framerate.
