Adaptive Vsync for Nvidia card are the best option. :flip:
I use adaptive v-sync on all games, works really well, can't see why anyone would not use it!
Racing games look like crap without vsync on, they tear too much.
Adaptive has no advantage for these.
With adaptive i notice huge mouse lag in Skyrim in game menu. It never happen with limiter :flip:
So for me limiter+vsync is best option.
Vsync on for everything. I don't use adaptive vsync as it still causes tearing.
Adaptive Vsync all the way. Before that I was using Vsync only on titles where my system could keep the 60 FPS up constantly. Without Vsync is only for benchmarking. No reason to have the cards run hotter and consume more power than necessary for displaying the maximum FPS for my monitor.
I tend to agree. I can't find much value in adaptive vsync considering it doesn't seem to provide much (if any) performance benefit compared to standard vsync plus triple buffering. That, and the fact adaptive vsync potentially increases input lag.
nope. coz of mouse lag. thats a deal breaker for me.
Yes, framecap at 60fps saves energy, no tearing, super smooth game :banana:
And with current triple buffering technologies even sub 60 framerates are acceptable and lag free
No mouse lag here with vsync on...
I used to use it. Never saw a reason not to.
Yes. Screen tearing is ass!
Dont know if I need it at 120hz. No tearing with it on or off for me.
Can't stand tearing so yeah, I nearly always play with it on.
I use it depending on the situation. Competitive BF3 matches, it's off and I cap the fps to keep my room cooler and to prevent me from noticing little hitches from when it sometimes jumps from 100 -70fps.
Many people already know this, but if you want to make the mouse delay not as bad with Vsync you cap your fps BELOW your monitors refresh rate. So for example, you have a display that accepts up to a 60hz input, turn on Vsync, cap your fps at 58, boom enjoy. There's still a slight hint of delay, but it's nowhere near as bad. Try it, use an app called Dxtory. It works for 32bit applications. Also you can use Nvidia inspector or hell, even some games have a frame limiter like BF3 via gametime.maxvariablefps 58, just enable vsync.
To some people the delay isn't perceivable because they're used to it. Others like me, super sensitive and pisses me off when I can't get near perfect 1:1 control because I feel the delay, I don't know how some can even navigate a menu with vsync lol.
Trust me and try it, you don't like it, put it back.
Yes! I hate tearing!
Your probably not conditioned to notice it
Only in RPGs and mmo's but FPS rather not cause it gives mouse lag.
Maybe this is old news, but i was wondering why my games were stuttering and stuff, even game emulators was stuttering. I have Adaptive Vsync enable too, but just a few mins ago, i started to enable Vsync in games options for games and well the sluttering went away, no more and all is smooth frame rates now. So i guess if you enable Adaptive Vsync, its wise to enable vsync in games you play.
Sounds like common sense i know, but i kept vysnc off in games , and didnt know that i had to turn that on too.
I only use to use it if I had good performance in games; but the adaptive v-sync is working well. It just seems that Batman AC has a stutter here and there. Not a big issue though.
