There were graphics bugs in VALORANT? I did multiple 3 hour runs everyday this past week and I've been getting a consistent 165 Hz on both the 2080 Super and RX 5700 XT without any crashes.

Can you explain how?

I even used DCH this time and since forever I have had the ability to click custom and uncheck geforce experience.

I don't understand this, unless I'm the only person on the planet that knows how to disable it using the vanilla installer.
