Adding to the Vsync debate...

I did this, and dropped 400 points in 3dmark03. Turned it back "on by default" in RivaTuner and got my 400 points back. Admittedly, I know nothing about vsync, im just sharing info, its something for you all to look at.

Caimbeul September 30, 2004 8:43:09 AM what about if the the refresh is say 85 but your machine is only outputting say 50 - will that make it really jerky? <i>Mmmm Dawn AND Eve at the same time...Drroooooll ------------------------------------------------- <b>XP2800 Barton, 2x512Mb PC2700, ASUS A7N8X, Hercules 9800Pro 128Mb. :cool: Related resources Debating between better cpu or adding gpu - Forum Can't find your answer ?

Get the answer ohnoesaz September 30, 2004 8:53:35 AM But with vsync on I still get the normal 200-500fps at certain parts of 3dmark03, and clearly that isnt my refresh rate also.... phial September 30, 2004 9:27:14 AM Quote:will that make it really jerky? no because your only getting 50. vsync would still sync the frames , so if anything it would be smoother with less tearing ------- <A HREF="http://www.albinoblacksheep.com/flash/you.html" target="_new">please dont click here! </A> Brand name whores are stupid!
