what’s the difference between MPRT and GTG, when talking about monitors response time? Which one is the most representative?


Looking forward to buying a monitor whose rates are the following: 1 ms for MPRT, and 4 ms for GTG. Can’t tell the difference…

They are two different measurements; they aren’t measuring the same thing. It’d be like asking what the difference is between tire pressure in your car and the air pressure inside the vehicle with all the windows up – they’re two different measurements.

GtG represents how long it takes for a pixel to change between two colors.

MPRT represents how long a pixel is continuously visible for.

Both values can contribute to a fast moving or fast changing image to appear blurry or other ‘bad’ image quality – but if it has faster GTG and MPRT response times, it won’t suffer as much from that.



is a decent enough page that came up from google.
