Windows 10 DWM Priority

Talk about NVIDIA G-SYNC, a variable refresh rate (VRR) technology. G-SYNC eliminates stutters, tearing, and reduces input lag. List of G-SYNC Monitors.

Oh Lord, that's a lot of text. A lot of claims, appeals to ignorance and appeal to authority. Sorry, you can think whatever you want, as well as to leave as much room for yourself to be wrong as possible. My claim is not a claim, but rather some personal observations that have led me to some preliminary assumptions, and which are, currently, in a framework of a hypothesis, not a theory, and that is why I am seeking for some additional tests. If you know what a hypothesis is, talking about "the burden of proof" at such early stages is a complete nonsense. Moreover, until something is proven or disproven, it is seems rather foolish to make any statements like you do. But hey, you probably one of those know-it-all people, the difficult ones. Thus, I would rather spare my time and effort, and cease my mere attempts of trying to explain anything to you, which, if continued any further, will not bear any useful results for my little experiment. All the best.

I'm not trying to be hostile here. You're seeing a difference, I thought about what could possibly be the reason for it, and I can't think of anything. That is all. No reason to fight over it. I apologize if I came off as hostile.

I wanna say thank you so much for this thread Fluffy. It helped me out immensely. My 3 year search is getting closer to ending!

Is there no permanent way to keep it this way? I have to restart DWM.exe everytime I want good input lag? Linux really is better for gaming because of this..

Hello Brother
I am also following the publication, I read everything it says and to give you a summary and what I have experienced if I feel an improvement when you apply the changes as indicated. For that you have to install a program called lasso process and click DWM and select inactivity. Hence with the inspector nvidia make the settings as indicated by vscyn. and lastly disable screen optimization for each game. I don't know if it's placebo but if you notice clearer the image and better reaction of the game. I hope the owner of the publication cultivates us more with his discoveries. I'm from Peru and I'm fascinated by hiding new improvements and combinations for the fluency of PC games.

Seems like this setting is not anymore in Nvidia Inspector: Frame Rate Limiter - 0x00200000 PS_FRAMERATE_LIMITER_DISALLOWED
Which is strange: I couldn't even find NV2 limiter, FYI: which is preferred on DX12 https://forums.guru3d.com/threads/compr ... ne.430972/

I can see that reducing DWM priority and all other things help instantly! But you said, to change also this, so I wanted to try this also.

This is placebo for sure. DWM process priority cannot possibly have any impact on the pixel colors. DWM is going to produce exactly the same results regardless of priority. There is no possible way for it not to. The only possible effect the CPU priority can have is stutter due to DWM not getting enough CPU time.

Also, DWM is disabled for fullscreen games.

You can take screenshots if you want and then compare them. You will see zero difference.
This is not placebo. The increased clarity is due to the increased responsiveness.

Yeah, I don't see a how messing around with dwm.exe priority could change the pixel colors in any way or even somehow replicate the effect of boosting lcd display responsiveness.

But, hey... if it seems to work for you, then keep on doing it I guess. Could be something weird going on on your system, and weird stuff does happen.
