Thanks for detailed article. This is unprecedented.
Yet, I have a question about low fps gaming. You have written that the cap should be ~3 fps below the maximum refresh rate but most AAA games cannot be run at 140fps at all. In this case, how should I cap my framerate on @120Hz or on @144hz etc. in order to have a smooth experience?
Thank you for everything.

Hello. I’m wondering if there’s any negative to me using G-sync as explained above but in borderless windowed mode (enabling the option in NVCP too)? The only reason I want to do this is because I play a game (Final Fantasy XIV) which doesn’t work properly in full screen mode, but flawlessly in borderless windowed mode.

Do I need to set low latency mode on for Resident Evil Village?
I have an MSI GeForce RTX 3070 ventus 3X OC and a Samsung Odyssey C27G75TQSI monitor.
I enable G-sync and v-sync in Nvidia drivers.
I get 90-100 frames per second in Resident Evil Village, do I still need to enable low latency mode?
And also wanted to know another low latency mode for the World of tanks game?
Maybe I can just enable vertical sync and low latency mode in nvidia settings permanently?

Hi, I wanted to ask, is V sync on in control panel still recommended over in-game v sync after MPO was added? thanks.
