120hz vs 60hz freesync

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What delivers the better gaming experience?

120hz or 60hz with freesync/gsync?

How close are these experience-wise?

120hz by far. Freesync improves screen tearing at max fps, but the raw framerate of 120hz also reduces this effect. If you have the power to run 120hz then you're not going to be dipping below 60hz too much.

If you can drive your games at a constant 120 FPS 24/7, then having a fixed 120Hz panel would be better than a 60Hz VRR one.

But let's say you can only get about 30-60 FPS, then having a 60Hz FreeSync panel would be much better in that scenario, it would prevent tearing and it would feel much smoother than having those frames on a non VRR 60Hz or 120Hz panel.

as long as you have the horses to get 120fps constant you don't really need freesyc/g-sync (just found out about this a few days ago).

I've used freesync with my monitor and it worked great games looked smooth at 80-90fps but now that I upgraded to gtx 1080 I get constant 144fps in all of my games and it looks smooth as butter even without g-sync thumb.gif
