Any advice on leaving FALD on or off for gaming, ie: does it add latency? I have it on at the moment and prefer it that way but I do play multiplayer/pvp in Destiny occasionally was just curious if it is detrimental to latency at all.
Pretty happy camper at the moment with everything where it is.
If FALD adds lag, it's not noticeable unless you're some superhuman. Clear Action adds 6ms last I remember, which is less than 1/3rd of a frame. You definitely shouldn't be noticing that. Shorter answer: Don't worry about additional lag if GLL is on, except HDR lag. Even with the additional 6ms, you're still well within 2 frames of total lag in HDMI 5 which is very, very fast, and within 3 frames in HDMI 1-4. Not perfect, but still acceptable in most games, IMHO. To note, one frame at 60hz = 16.7ms. HDMI 5 with CA would be around 25ms, if it does indeed add 6ms of input lag. That's less than 1.5 frames.
As a guideline, Two frames is just over 33ms. 3 frames is 50 and so forth.
I honestly think the 'average' consumer wouldn't notice anything below 3 frames, generally speaking. That is unless they compare with something that has one frame less or so. I have a display with 10ms input lag, and I can't really notice anything between it and the 19ms lag on the P. I can tell HDMI 1-4's input lag in comparison though, but not enough for me to feel like it's messing me up on anything except the most precise hard timing based inputs, like Gears 4 active reloads. Even then, your body adjusts for the extra lag, and you find yourself pressing buttons a hint earlier to get an active reload. You will always adapt to lag, unless it's brutally slow like 60+ms, IMHO.
Even then I was play testing Gears 4 with HDR on an LG OLed C6 pre-patch and it was like 67ms lag. I could still get near perfect reloads, because my brain adjusted for the extra length of lag. It was DEFINITELY sluggish and not recommended, but not completely impossible. Post OLED patch, the lag went to about 38ms, which was just fine.
