    I read that MFAA turned on Globally could kill multi-thread rendering here on Guru3D https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/nvidia-anti-aliasing-guide-updated.357956/page-156#post-5137412

    And noticed that here https://pcgamingwiki.com/wiki/Glossary:Anti-aliasing_(AA) " Possibly also disable D3D11 Driver Command Lists, killing multi-threaded rendering (and thus performance when CPU-limited)"

    I think it's not worthy to have it on on global

    I always thought that it only comes into effect in supported games when MSAA is enabled,
    and in such cases always provides an improvement in MSAA quality at no additional performance cost.
    There can be potential compatibility issues or even a slight drop in image quality in some cases though.
    Thank you for your links.
    I may reconsider my choice and disable it globally.

    I've found a good explanation for Texture Filtering and what's the differece between these 4 settings, I'll leave it here for extra info.

    What about when you reach max refresh rate, say its 144hz I can see with Gsync on you get capped at 144fps and "if" Vsync off can work along with Gsync you would get 144+ fps above 144.
    I don't have Gsync so this is just a guess if it is supported.

    You can always use an fps cap (144 fps ) using msi afterburner or nvidia inspector tool and keep vsync off

    Yes, I use that now, I am just wondering if Vsync on/off is a supported feature with Gsync enabled.
    If my memory is right I remember free-sync having that option and I "think" NV added it to Gsync, but not having it I am not sure.

    Yes, Vsync off/on has an effect when you have G-Sync enabled. Blurbuster's G-Sync 101 guide shows it.

    To properly use Gsync, cap your fps 2 frames below your screen refresh rate. E.g. - 100hz screen = cap at 98 fps, + turn Vsync On + Turn Gsync on.

    This will result in most fluid experience.

    So you mean Clamp is working? But is only for Kepler and older. (Driver info)
