Motion blur reduction creates CRT-like motion clarity by backlight strobing. This is great for people who play fast-paced competitive games and want to have a clearer view of the game screen.
What Is Motion Blur Reduction?
The backlight strobing technology decreases motion blur, even during intense gaming moments. The new Motion Blur Reduction tech saves you from the difficult task of having to play with blurry images on your screen when all it takes is a flick of a switch, and boom! You’re playing in HD again without any lag or delay.
Enable ULMB (Ultra Low Motion Blur) with a simple click of your mouse! This cutting-edge monitor feature is found under different names depending on the model you selected from our wide range, like ELMB or 1ms MPRT MBR DyAc and Light-Boost.
Motion Blur Reduction: What is it?
When it comes to fast-paced games, you want the most lifelike motion. The Motion Blur Reduction setting on your TV will let you experience a CRT-like clarity that can’t be beaten! With the gaming monitor’s OSD menu, you can adjust motion blur reduction for your desired viewing experience. Different models have different brands of this technology – there are different examples among many others to explore!

How does Motion Blur Reduction work?
Your system rig and monitor are most likely in your control, while professionals can tweak picture/driver settings at any time. You might not know about these systems a lot but make sure you do what’s best for yourself as an individual!
Surely, enabled backlight strobing will make games look smoother. But that doesn’t always happen because you need to match the refresh rate with your frame rate for best performance, and some technologies can only work simultaneously if VRR or MBR is on separately from each other. ASUS has a solution, though: ELMB can do both at once!
If you want to get the best picture quality, it is important that all monitors are properly tuned and calibrated. Otherwise, users will experience double images or pixel overshoot which can cause frustration for those who don’t know what they’re looking at. There may be some input lag if there’s screen stuttering with FreeSync/G-SYNC used as well since this technology doesn’t filter out these types of errors without proper calibration.
Gigabyte’s new Aim Stabilizer Sync technology will give gamers more choice when it comes to V-Sync as they can now use FreeSync/G-SYNC with Gigabyte’s AIM MBR and keep input lag low.
Motion Blur Reduction: When and Why use?
One thing that can make a video game look better is motion blur reduction. This technology will reduce the blurring in fast-paced action sequences, making it easier to see what’s happening onscreen and bringing your attention back to the gameplay.
There are two types of technologies for achieving this: strobing, which lets you have high refresh rates with variable frame rates, or adaptive sync (G-SYNC), where synchronizing frames per second means having smoother-looking games while maintaining low input lag from screens compatible with G-SYNC monitors.
ASUS’ ELMB-Sync technology is the only one that has VRR and MBR modes which, in theory, should give you a gaming experience without tearing or stuttering. However, it’s not tuned well enough on most monitors as there are double images from strobe crosstalk when using their mode with a major input lag penalty if FreeSync/G-SYNC is used instead.
The new Gigabyte Aim Stabilizer Sync technology will allow gamers to use their favorite FreeSync/G-SYNC monitors while also getting the benefit of V-sync without input lag.
Video games are a great way to unwind after a long day, but if you want the smoothest gameplay possible, it pays to be mindful of your hardware configuration. V-Sync is their best friend for some gamers because they can play without worrying about input lag when running backlight strobing at 120Hz or 240 Hz refresh rate monitors.
This will decrease the added input lag of V-Sync, and it may be necessary for some gamers to capture footage with a certain frame rate. First, you’ll need to know your monitor’s refresh rate to calculate how many frames per second (FPS) should go into RTSS (Riva tuner Statistics Server). This is only needed if you’re using a 144Hz display because 143.992 means that this person would cap their FPS at 143.982, which is 0% off from the original 144 Hz they were looking for.
Can you guess how fast your screen is going to refresh? Well, if you have a steady frame rate on the GPU and it’s close enough for comfort (i.e., 60 fps), You can also use more than one of many websites at once to find out what kind of FPS rate you’re getting from various games.
Although backlight strobing works best at a lower refresh rate than the monitor’s maximum, this technique will often work even better if you disable sync in your graphics card settings.
MBR is a difficult technology to use because it has so many limitations. Even if you adjust the strobing backlight frequency manually, there are still some other disadvantages like reduced picture brightness and the inability to be used on most monitors with VRR (variable refresh rate).
However, there is no reason why any gamer should play without MBR turned off! This will save your eyesight by making everything much easier on them during those late-night sessions where every other light has been shut off because who needs sleep anyway? Monitors with MBR enabled are harder to find because manufacturers usually don’t state the display’s maximum brightness.
Importance of Response Time Speed
The amount of motion blur you experience in a game will depend on your panel type. IPS panels have the fastest GtG response time speeds. Still, VA and TN also boast impressive responsiveness to quickly reduce blurry effects for gamers who enjoy faster-paced games with fast movement like first-person shooters or racing simulations.
VA panels have a slow pixel transition speed, so fast-paced games can often smudge the darker scenes. TN panels are the most popular choice for competitive gamers because they provide fast response time speeds that can’t be matched by IPS or VA panel monitors.
The IPS panel is a great choice for the gamer to get more in-depth graphics without sacrificing speed. IPS panels are somewhere between TN and VA regarding pixel transition time, but some newer models have just as fast response times as their faster counterparts!
The final advantage of OLED panels is their fast response times. TN or Twisted Nematic have slower responses than the individual pixels in an organic light-emitting diode (OLED) panel that produce a picture instantaneously because there’s no backlight blocking each pixel from changing colors; this makes for very smooth motion and eliminates blurriness.
Manufacturers may make misleading claims about how fast their monitors are in regards to backlight strobing response time. When they only state the display’s MPRT without mentioning GtG pixel response times, it can be hard for consumers to know what is happening under the hood of these complicated devices.
Benefits of Motion Blur Reduction?
Motion blur reduction can result in a sharper image, which may be of significant importance depending on the type of photography you are doing. However, it is also important to note that this tool will not work if your camera lens has a large aperture and its light source is very close or far away from the subject being photographed.
