Uncapped FPS in Overwatch

post #1 of 28
Thread Starter 
So I've already established that if you get high FPS in CS:GO (I get around 300 FPS), then it's better to turn off GSYNC and VSYNC, use ULMB, and don't limit the FPS to get the best possible smoothness possible. Is this true in Overwatch if I get high FPS than Hz also?

GSync helps with issues that makes games smoother.

Yes, but GSYNC is useless for fps way greater thsn hz as it does not enable itself. What we're talking about here is that exact scenario wherein the frame rate never goes below the refresh rate.

I was thinking the same, with my 980TI I'm getting about 120 to 144hz on epic on my Swift, today I'll try to lower the settings to keep the minimum to 144hz and activate ULMB, I think it should be better. Yesterday i was playing and i keep noticing that the image is kinda blurred when moving to fast and makes interpreter what is happening hard... tongue.gif

Overwatch gets clunky whenever your GPU is at 80% or more usage utilization, if you're running a 144Hz monitor you should make sure you are able to run the game with at at least 190 FPS at all times and then cap it with the In-Game frame limiter to 144 FPS (Display based) this will get rid of all input lag possible.

Overwatch isn't like most games in the sense that it lowers input commands priority in favor for graphical tasks, meaning that whenever your GPU is able to output more FPS (Uncapped FPS) Overwatch will lower the priority of input commands like Mouse and keyboard movement in favor of more FPS.

I haven't ever found any other game that behaves like this, maybe World of Warcraft but this one had a setting to disable this behavior "Reduce Input Lag" I think it was called.

I have been playing for like 4 hours with ULMB 120hz with my Swfit, the 980TI overclock with the settings on ULTRA y get around 150 fps avarege, really smooth and it look nice. For my experience seem that ULMB + Uncapped fps is better for Overwatch than Gsync. thumb.gif

Is there any reason why it does this?

I was about to correct you that ULMB only supports up to 120Hz but I guess you already knew that wink.gif

I'm confused about it though. My display monitor is an AOC G2460PG and what I tried doing, at least in CS:GO for now, was to edit the Nvidia control panel settings for the game to use ULMB instead of GSync and disabled VSYNC. When I start the game, it doesn't turn on ULMB and I have to manually turn it on in the monitor OSD. Is this to be expected? What process did you do in your Swift?

I didn't remember when i was setting it off but after a match i got it working. For me all i have to do is disable Gsync from nvidia (untick the option) and on the monitor OSD enable ULMB, it seems at least for the Swift that if you have 120hz active and Gsync inactive the monitor remember to activate ULMB. I only have to turn ULMB on once on the OSD and that all.

BTW playing Tracer with ULMB is way better that Gsync, I get less disoriented after a blink and attack more precisely. :3

Yeah, you have to set your desktop refresh rate to 120Hz before the Nvidia control panel settings can take effect in-game, I just figured it out a couple of hours ago. Would there be difference between 120Hz and 144Hz in the desktop though? Lol

I always have 120hz in the desktop since I seem to have a bug that make the card don't downclock correctly after 120hz, goes from been at 25°C on idle (with a custom loop and a EK block) to something around 36°C...
