Apex Legends Optimal Settings for 240hz G-Sync Monitors

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.

The only question is if the game will behave properly above 144fps...

It will have moments with 300fps and then suddenly drop to 130 on some areas, as it was before. And to me that´s awful for your aim. doesn´t matter if you are at 240hz, 480hz or 1000hz. A drop from 250 to 130 is a huge difference on mouse sensitivity (muscle memory), and can only hurt, I would rather cap it to 120 and have steady frame times/mouse sens.

Yeah the framerate is so erratic when uncapped.

Hey Notty_PT are you using your XG2402 with 138 fps cap & NVCP V-Sync 'On' with Apex? Thanks

Give it a try. I've been converted. The extra smoothness is nice and worth it over the input lag that honestly makes no difference imo.

Whatever you do, make sure you use the in-game frame rate cap, instead of an external frame rate cap.

The in-game frame rate caps have less lag, and make sure you enable variable refresh rate.

The "cap a few frames per second below Hz" advice primarily applies to variable refresh rate (GSYNC, FreeSync), while you can use a much tighter frame rate cap for fixed-Hz low-lag VSYNC ON.

For those still playing Apex, now that the game lets you make more adjustments, what is the best setting if trying to use G-Sync?

I've been running G-Sync ON, V-Sync OFF with a 180fps cap seems to give me the best result.

I was watching a streamer that doesn't use G-Sync, but was still capping his framerate at 190fps with RivaTuner because he said the latest patch had a problem with frame pacing and the slight input lag was worth it. I am not sure what to make of that.

Personally, I usually use G-Sync even though competitive players don't because I feel like I can track targets better.

I as well am interested in how well this game can do at high fps. 300 is preferable but if I can get decent stability at 235 fps I'll take it.

Also what long term power limit are you using for that 5ghz 9700k notty_pt?

You can get nearly steady 230 if you use a config like this:

Will make game look like quite bad though.

I have no idea. I just overclocked it on the bios with 1,29v.
