Frame rate capping to 60

So I was getting frame skip on my old GPU and as it was time to upgrade anyway, I went and bought a 1080. Now for some reason my frame rate in all games is being capped within the realm of 60-80fps.

  • I have a 144hz monitor which it is set to in both windows and Nvidia settings.
  • Vsync is turned off in Nvidia controls
  • Vsync is turned off in-game
  • Frame rate is set to uncapped/154FPS in-game.


This is super confusing to me because before my R9 290 died, I could run most games at 144.

EDIT: I should probably list my specs

i7-6700
GTX 1080
16GB DDR3 Ram
GA-H170 Gaming 3 Mobo.

  1. Go into your display settings, and make sure it is set to 144hz, this includes the Nvidia settings, and the settings through the actual Windows display manager.

  2. I have done this already, as I listed in my first post.

    EDIT: I've spent some more time messing around with it this evening and now it's not capping at the 60-80 like it was, it's back to being super stuttery. 200, 30, 150, 60, etc. as an example.

  3. So it's more jumping up and down. Hmmm, can you cap your frames in game to 144 at all?
