Sometimes it will use the desktop's Hz, sometimes the highest available, sometimes 60Hz. There are no rules, it depends on how the game is programmed.Abiak wrote:Last doubts.
1) If in the future they will add exclusive fullscreen, highest avaible should work, however there are rare situations where highest avaible doesn't work: in this case will it use the game's refresh rate or the desktop's one?
Yes, for fullscreen games. For windowed borderless games, only the desktop refresh rate is used.2) The priority is: highest avaible > game's refresh rate (if it is there and if the game has exclusive fullscreen) > desktop refresh rate, correct?
If you get an option for 144, use 144. If you only get an option for 143, then use 143.3) I asked these questions because in game I can choose between 143Hz and 144Hz, since windows say it's "143.9" which one should I use? Or doesn't matter (cause I'll block fps at 141)?
Well, you can find out for sure if you select 143 for the desktop, and then go here:With the steam fps counter the max fps I can see in this game is 143 but in other games I can see 144 fps.
What does it say?
Yes. AMD and Intel GPUs don't have the option in the driver. Or you might not have a g-sync monitor, in which case you might not want the highest refresh rate. For example, you want to play at 100Hz instead of 144Hz on a non-gsync monitor. In that case, people don't use the "highest available" setting. Instead they select 100Hz in-game.4) Well if highest avaible almost always works and the game's refresh rate only works with fullscreen then the game's one has no reason to be there unless it matters for non-nvidia graphics cards.
