Thanks for this Guide!
i already use gsync on + vsync on + 141 FPS LOCK on 144 hz screen.
some questions:
1) I often play VR games. Does Gsync + vsync combo somehow affect VR performance?
2) Is it combo good for Gsync-compatible screen, like mine LG UltraGear 27GL83A-B ?
3) And should i use LLM On or should i set in on AUTO (now i play with auto)? I mostly play non cybersport dx12/vulkan games
4) Does DSR DLDSR tech affect gsyncvsync combo and lag?

I have read the entire guide. However, I have one question that is bothering me and I can’t find a reasonable answer anywhere. I have a monitor with a refresh rate of 240Hz, but I can’t use G-Sync. What happens if I set the frame limit to e.g. 100fps and turn on V-sync?

If I have a amd gpu and freesync monitor, shall I follow your optimal settings but using freesync instead of g sync and amd chill fps limiter 3 fps under my monitors refresh rate instead of nvcp’s fps limiter. So it would essentially be freesync (using amd software) + v sync (using amd software or in game) + -3 fps below refresh rate limiter (using amd software, i.e. amd chill, or in game). Would it work the same as in your optimal settings? Thanks jorimt 🙂

What do I need to set in the NVCP display settings if I use G Sync, I have an ASUS VG248QG 165HZ monitor.

At the moment I have No Scaling + Display set

Hello I play WarZone 2 and I am interested in the G SYNC + V Sync setting, I currently have G Sync and V Sync enabled (In NVCP), also I enabled NVIDIA Reflex in the game settings and now my FPS is limited to 158fps (Monitor 165hz).

Can you tell me the optimal G Sync settings for this game, maybe there are better options to get optimal smoothness without frame tearing and micro staters
