My dual 1.8G5 does this with my 2005FPWpuckhead193 said:Can someone run Flurry the screen saver and look for a horizontal line. It sorta travels up/down. I want to see if its just the screensaver or if the display is messed up..
Can someone take a photo of screen tearing so we can see what it is all about? Also the bright corners, could that just be uneven backlighting rather than a fault with flurry?governor said:That's NOT true..
Flurry SUFFERS from screen tearing on the imac. Everybody knows that. You just haven't noticed it yet.
Every newer imac i have seen flurry on, displays vertical screentearing. (the ones (6-7) at work, and also the 3 intel imac's i have unpacked the last month. + My friends imacs.. So please! don't try to fool anyone that your computer is unique.
What you also will notice is that every G5/intel imac has brighter corners when flurry is on, when seen in a dark room. It's not the computers fault. It's just a buggy screensaver, even thou it's nice to look at!
Is a TFT display different to an LCD ? or am i getting confusedSam0r said:Actually, its the screen.
The reason (iirc) it tears is because the screensaver is running at a higher framerate than the monitor (Usually 60hz, which means it refreshes the image on the screen 60 times a second, although with TFT's it doesn't, but i'm not going into that.) can handle.
So, if the graphics card is pumping out flurry at say 70fps, there will be a point where the screen is refreshing when the graphics card is half way through rendering a frame, then you'll only get half of the frame displayed, and half of the next one, which gives you a tearing effect.
Most games have a V-Sync function which won't let the graphics card render over 60fps (Or whatever the refresh rate of your monitor is set at).
So, yeah. There is nothing wrong with your machine, infact its a good thing that its doing that.
Looks ugly though.
I'm not sure, but as far as most people are conserned, they're the same.Macmadant said:Is a TFT display different to an LCD ? or am i getting confused
