What is Vsync? Should you turn it on or off?


It adjusts the screen’s refresh rate to synchronize with the game’s frame rate. By building it into special graphics cards and monitors, though, AMD aims to facilitate smoother communication between the computer’s components. It is important to note that screen tearing does no damage to a display or graphics card.

If you need more FPS in a game, the easiest way to get it is by decreasing your graphical fidelity. The game won’t look as pretty, but it will run faster and more smoothly. Get the latest drivers from NVIDIA, AMD, or Intel, depending on what graphics hardware your PC has inside.

Should You Enable VSync or Not?

Does VSync limit FPS?

This tells your GPU to synchronize its actions with the display, which forces it to render and send a new frame when the monitor is ready to redraw the screen. This does limit your framerate exactly to the refresh rate. For example, if your refresh rate is 60Hz, VSync will cap your framerate to 60 FPS.

Simply navigate to the section of the Control Panel shown below, and enable the Adaptive VSync option. Adaptive VSync dynamically turns VSync on and off to maintain a more stable framerate.

How many FPS can a 144hz monitor display?

When vsync is not enabled, nothing more than double buffering is needed for performance, but a render queue can still be used to smooth framerate if it requires a few old frames to be kept around. There are games out there that list triple buffering as an option when the technique used is actually a short render queue.

Just launch the GeForce Experience application from your Start menu and you’ll see a list of game you have installed. Select a game and click the “Optimize” button to automatically use NVIDIA’s recommended settings for that game based on your system’s hardware. To find them, open the game’s Options menu and look for a category like “Graphics” or “Video.” You can tweak individual settings or just use presets.

Vertical retraces occur at the vertical refresh rate, typically in the 60–100 Hz range. If supported by the graphics controller,turning off Vsynceliminates this delay and provides the highest frame rate. However, it can cause a visual artifact called tearing. Your monitor can only display 60 refreshes per second, but those refreshes with Vsync off can be comprised of many different consecutive frames, if your frame rate is substantially higher than your refresh rate. And to me subjectively it feels more responsive, and I think the reason for this is that at least for me, my brain can interpolate very well what it happening, sub-refresh.

For games, this option is enabled or disabled via the game settings or configuration menu under graphics settings. I have a 144hz freesync monitor and I'd like to get more than 60fps. If used improperly, however, it can throw your frame rates off and cause you an unnecessary headache.

What is Vsync interval?

A higher refresh rate. This means either buying a 120Hz or 144Hz computer monitor. These displays can handle up to 120 frames per second and the result is a much smoother gameplay. It also handles lower V-sync caps such as 30 FPS and 60 FPS, since they are multiples of 120 FPS.

These driver installers include tools that automatically check for updates to help keep your drivers updated in the future. You’ll also find options for viewing any game’s FPS in other tools like NVIDIA GeForce Experience and FRAPS.

When using double buffering (and no render queue), while vertical sync is enabled, after one frame is completed nothing else can be rendered out which can cause stalling and degrade actual performance. Triple Buffering does not improve perfomance except for correcting Vsync refresh.

Vsync description

You could use adaptive v-sync if you use nvidia, which turns v-sync off under the refresh rate, but you can't cap to 60 fps because it'll trigger it to drop v-sync so you can't really get around the extra latency. If you really want the smoothness of v-sync at your full refresh rate, then maybe lower your graphics settings a bit. When vsync is not enabled, nothing more than double buffering is needed for performance, but a render queue can still be used to smooth framerate if it requires a few old frames to be kept around. This can keep instantaneous framerate from dipping in some cases, but will (even with double buffering and vsync disabled) add lag and input latency.

  • This causes screen-wide horizontal tears whenever the camera or viewpoint moves horizontally or vertically.
  • What screen tearing looks likeTo prevent screen tearing, you can enable a feature called Vertical Synchronization, or VSync.
  • Fast Sync is one of NVIDIA’s newer technologies that only works with a GTX 900 series graphics card, or a 10-series GPU or newer.
  • So, if you’re playing a game with a low frame rate, the display feature will standby as it’s likely not necessary.

Do I Really Have to Worry About VSync?

And that's why more advanced technologies that rely on better monitors also exist, namely G-Sync (for Nvidia GPUs) and FreeSync, though this require actual hardware support. 240 FPS – Manageable only by the fastest 240 Hz monitors, 240 FPS is as high as modern-day displays can go. Most games should automatically launch on the more powerful GPU.

Enhanced Sync

We also hope more developers will start making triple buffering the default option in their games, as it will deliver the best experience to gamers interested in both quality and performance. There are only a handful of games that include triple buffering as a built in option, and NVIDIA and AMD drivers currently only allow forcing triple buffering in OpenGL games.

If you can’t find it, perform a web search for the name of the game and “view FPS” to see more information about a specific game. You can turn on triple buffering in the graphics or video options of many games. You can also try nvidias fast sync,this will give you the maximum FPS possible for lowest ms possible but will only send complete frames to the display to prevent tearing. Both techniques allow the graphics card to continue doing work while waiting for a vertical refresh when one frame is already completed.

The feature isn't OpenGL only, but the control panel option to force it on is. Some games do have it built in to DirectX games and I do believe there are some 3rd party methods to attempt to turn it on in DirectX.

While it is waiting to flip, it can start rendering in the other back buffer. The result is that the frame rate is typically higher than double buffering (and Vsync enabled) without any tearing. You're getting more updates per second but they're only happening to fractions of the screen. That gives benefit to having frame rates that are above your refresh rate in terms of responsiveness.

There will be less delay between each individual frame and therefore less input lag. You can understand this by comparing it to frame rate in films or games. If a film is shot at 24 frames per second, then the source content only shows 24 different images per second. Similarly, a display with a display rate of 60Hz shows 60 “frames” per second. With Vertical Synchronization (VSynch), only whole images are displayed on-screen.

Adaptive Sync does a better job of streamlining visual performance without any stuttering or tearing. However, once the frame rate exceeds the monitor’s refresh rate, the chances of the game producing video artifacts increases — usually in the form of screen tearing. Likewise, when fps drop below the refresh rate, the game experiences input lag and stutter. With double buffering (and Vsync enabled), 3-D games must wait until the next vertical retrace before they can start rendering the next frame.

Vsync description

In the event that your game comes to a graphically intense moment and the frame rate drops below your monitor’s refresh rate VSync will attempt to match that sudden change. Instead of being a seamless transition, VSync delivers an even bigger drop in frame rate, leaving you with increased visual and performance lag. Short for vertical sync, VSync is the graphics technology responsible for synchronizing the frame rate of a game to the refresh rate of a monitor. This synchronization delivers smooth, uninterrupted gameplay for graphics-heavy 3D games. What V-Sync does is synchronize your monitor's refresh rate with your framerate producing an incredibly smooth/fluid image.

View bobbing is how it shows the up and down and side to side head motion of the character when you're walking, turn it off and the player glides smoothly like they're flying in creative.

This heightened technology tends to perform more impressively and consistently than VSync. NVIDIA’s Adaptive Sync is a smart alternative to VSync that allows you to render frames using the NVIDIA Control Panel software.

How to turn VSync on or off?

However, this doesn’t require a proprietary chip in the monitor. Instead, FreeSync relies on the DisplayPort’s Adaptive-Sync specification, which is a royalty-free industry standard. The difference between them is that in G-SYNC, the proprietary module in the monitor handles the work of communication between the devices.

Does Triple Buffering improve FPS?

30 FPS – Good enough for single-player and for a more cinematic experience. 60 FPS – The ideal framerate for most people, as the extra fluidity makes games more responsive and can provide an edge in multiplayer.
