I feel this. I have a 165hz monitor so I just set the refresh at the highest point likely to hold steady and let vsync do the rest. Sometimes I land in a weird middle ground where half-sync works for a steady 82 fps and thats what it is. Yeah... leave it wide open and it might break 100 at times but when it comes back down its not as nice as going up.I have never got this crazy of uncapped FPS, I see very limited benefit from it, if any at all.
I cap my FPS every game I play, I dont like running components at max load, and I find games run smoother when they running at a cap vs a hardware bottleneck. Not to mention it saves lots of power doing so, so a greener way of gaming.
I like to stay at full or half refresh frame rates. I find that capping anywhere else is somehow "gritty" if that makes sense. Consistent but not smooth.
Tradeoffs though. Losing out with that extra latency. Personally I dont feel that - it just feels smooth to me. But I know for some people, that just totally unplugs them.
