Should I use VSync with 120hz?

Should I use VSync with 120hz?

Tearing is where the GPU draws a new scene partway through a monitor refresh cycle. Another good option is just to switch vsync on anyway, even with a twitchy shooter in single player or online modes, especially if the monitor refresh is 120Hz or more and the PC can render the game with no dropped frames.

Does 120hz reduce input lag?

From my understanding, as long as the source (the console) supports HDMI 2.1 120hz, and the TV supports HDMI 2.1 120HZ, players should be able to get the lower input lag even if the game runs at 30hz or 60hz.

Does 60fps look better on 120hz?

With v-sync and less than 60 FPS, 120hz is better. With v-sync and over 60 FPS, 120hz can be better, but can be worse in ways. The higher the FPS, the more it is better. Without v-sync, 120hz is always better.

Does turning off VSync increase FPS?

It does not increase the FPS, but it does make it smoother. But if your FPS is higher than the refresh rate of your monitor, then VSync will put a cap on it.

Does 120Hz make a difference for 60FPS?

60FPS will look the same at 60Hz and 120Hz, but in order to benefit from a high refresh rate you’ll need at least ~90FPS. However, you do get a lower input lag at high refresh rates, which is great for competitive gaming.

Is it possible to get 120Hz on 60Hz monitor?

Unless you’ve gone into properties for you monitor and set it to 120Hz it’s actually only running at 60Hz. First, you’ll only get 120 fps if your computer is capable of pumping out at least 120 fps and if there’s no frame rate cap, otherwise the next highest possible value at 120 Hz is 60 fps.

How bad is the tearing on a 120Hz monitor?

At 120 FPS on a 120hz monitor, tearing is at its worst. The reason is that there is no syncing, and because the hz and FPS match, the tear line will move very slowly, showing up as noticeable as it can. No other refresh rate is worse than matching your monitors refresh rate.

Is there a way to have zero screen tearing without Vsync?

Tearing without vsync or any sync for that matter will always happen. The catch with higher hz monitors is that if you are able to hit similar fps as your refresh rate allows, the tearing will be a lot less noticeable than on ~60fps range. My bad, i wasn’t implying zero tearing at 120Hz 120fps.

What is the difference between 60fps and 120fps?

Tearing is worst when the frame rate is close to the refresh rate, so 60 fps at 120 Hz will have less visible tearing than 60 fps at 60 Hz. Tearing also happens more often per refresh if the frame rate is beyond the refresh rate, so 80-100 fps at 120 Hz will be smoother and have less tearing than 80-100 fps at 60 Hz. hi, all solved, thanks!
