Linux Nvidia driver 1920x1080 @ 100Hz?
 
Can the Nvidia 177.82 Linux driver drive my Samsung UE40B6000 TV @ 100Hz at a resolution of 1920x1080? If so what should the modeline be? The TV seems to be capable of 100Hz. Currently I'm driving it at 60Hz via the HDMI port from my Asus M3N78-EMH HDMI m/b, I assume the 60Hz is returned in the EDID.

None of the "100Hz" or "200Hz" TV accept such signal.

At best 60Hz.

100, 200, 600Hz is a marketing term for their motion enhancement in order to prevent judder ...

a bit rubbish in all really

Yes, yes and more yes.

USA TV broadcast HD is 1920x1080 @ 60i.... 60 INTERLACED FRAMES PER SECOND.
EU TV? 1920x1080 @ 50i -- *gasp* 50 FPS!

These "120Hz" or "240Hz" TVs are a marketing scam. Buy smart, buy DLP.

This scam is as bad as "upscaling" DVD players.
