Need professional opinion, V-Sync or Frame Capping?

    That program I linked above allows Frame Capping and you disable V-Sync, it is said this reduces input lag while still no tearing.

    If this is true, why have Nvidia/AMD not replaced it with V-Sync? :confused:

    Because it does the same thing... vsync caps ur frames to ur refresh rate.. theirs no reason to use an external program to do whats already built in.. Unless the game doesnt have vsync or u for some reason wanna force a higher or lower fps cap


    The program linked
    Having a different FPS cap (lower) would decrease video file size. Thats why it has it.

    I had tearing last night in Civ 5 so I had to turn it on, I have tearing in all the CoD games as well unless I turn it on. Maybe your monitor is just better then mine. :banghead:

    I get tearing on occasion with vSync off. Never with it on (as it should be).
    That being said, some games do better with other frame caps than 60Hz.
    Skyrim, for instance, did better at 59Hz for some reason.

    and even in this case you can force vsync in the CPs
