what settings do i need to get the most out of my native g sync module monitor? (also side question)

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.

Post by kofman13 » 30 Jun 2020, 09:29

Just got acer predator XB273X which has native g sync. So far,
In game v sync: off
NVCP V sync: On
are there any other settings i can use in NVCP to get even more out of native g sync ?(since i paid so much lol)

side note: i was playing apex legends with my frame rate fluctuating between 120-170fps, and then i go to G sync enabled, and for SOME reason it feels like with g sync on there is more motion blur? it could be placebo or im going crazy but it felt liek g sync off was a little snappier maybe i was just getting tired last night. anyway, any other settings in NVCP to make g sync even better since i have native module?

G-SYNC on + V-SYNC on (NVCP) + V-SYNC off (in-game) + LLM "On" (as a fallback when/if ever your framerate falls below your FPS limit) + minimum -3 FPS below refresh rate with either in-game or RTSS/Nvidia Max Frame Rate limiters (former has lowest lag, latter have most frametime consistency WHEN your framerate is limited by the cap).

Otherwise, you're already automatically getting the benefit of dynamic/variable overdrive the hardware module provides during fluctuating framerates within the refresh rate (reduces overdrive artifacts such as ghosting/smearing, etc).

is there any downside to using g sync? besides negligible amount of input lag. (or none if i have module).
also do you think i would notice stepping down to g sync compatible monitor instead of native g sync? i am tempted to get the 25 inch version of my monitor instead of 27 but the 25 is g sync compatible while my 27 inch is g sync native

If you don't want tearing, not really, it's the lowest possible lag no-tear solution (across any framerate within the refresh rate) available.

You'll likely lose dynamic overdrive, which reduces overdrive artifacts/ghosting with variable framerates. That, and if you go G-SYNC Compatible, you want to make sure it has "Official" Nvidia support:

Otherwise, it should be comparable in most respects.
