Sometimes there's no choice. The bootloader menu, memtest and live
media, as well as some vintage installs only allow 60 Hz or 70 Hz and
resolutions smaller than 1152x864. More annoying than the stroboscope
effect caused by 60 Hz or 70 Hz is the f...ine flashing Intel HD
Graphics line. Some tasks are faster than for my old mobo, e.g.
compiling a kernel, backups to tar.gz. The hardware allows lowest
latency settings with my professional audio interface as well as with
at least one of my pro-sumer audio interfaces.
