Adaptive Vsync does it work well? - Page 3

And when that 30fps drop thing happens, you DO see it in your FPS counter. It 'registers' there.

Hm. I wasn't aware of this.

So is adaptive vsync only useful to minimize the video memory usage and input lag of triple buffering, and to provide a triple buffering-like experience on games that don't support it (like you mention, are quite rare)?

Yeah its strange. Sometimes it seems regular Vsync works better but then I'll try adaptive and it seems to work better. Also is it true that Triple Buffering is build into BF3 by default so you don't have to enable it in the Nvidia Control Panel? And wow looking at the graphic for batman shows that adaptive Vsync works much much better than regular Vsync very interesting...

What I don't understand is, when using Evga Precision thing I have it set to show my current frame rates. And it shows 55-60 all the time. Does that mean I am getting 55-60 or is it more like 25-60? Confused :-(

It works decently.

Sometimes mouse get the sluggish feeling as you get when using regular vsync and frames dip below 58. It doesnt "adapt" quick enough.

For me in Cysis 2 (Ultra mode DX11, HiRes Texture ,with adaptive still the screen tear, with Vsync work perfect, In Metro 2033 it work great , in Battlefield 3 it llok good but still I preffer Vsync, well I pretty sure the next driver it will get better smile.gif

Sorry guys I'm not trying to hi jack this thread I'm just hoping someone with more knowledge can help me better understand this. I was reading about adaptive vsync at multiple sites and they stated if you have regular vsync on and your fps in a game dip down below your monitors refresh rate like say 60 Hz then vsync will lock your fps at 30. Is this true because when I'm gaming on bf3 on my 6970's CF my fps do dip below my monitors 60 Hz refresh rate but never go below 50 fps when I use fraps to monitor it ? I been thinking of upgrading to 2 680's so I was wondering about adaptive vsync and if it has any real pros over amds implementation of vsync. Thanks for your help guys/gals.

I'm getting some pretty bad tearing on Skyrim when my FPS dips below 58fps with adaptive vsync on. I ended up just putting on normal vsync again. Not sure if it's because I'm running 580's with the newest drivers, need to disable some vsync option in the Skyrim inf files, or adaptive vsync is just a hit or miss depending on what game you're playing and may get better with future updates...

This.. it may be strongly dependent on the hardware combination and game(engine / settings )..
for my part i use it and i "feel" like it works good and there is a smaller mouselag.

is there something I'm missing here? I still get screen tearing w/ adaptive V-sync. It seems just like no vsync, except always <=60fps

It is also strongly dependent of your monitor.. some screens will do more some will do less vsync.
browse the web for more experience.
