If you're running Gsync with vsync off and uncapped fps, then Gsync will turn off once it goes above your max refresh. If you're running fullscreen, then you'll get tearing. If you're running windowed fullscreen, then Windows DWM vsync takes over.

When using Gsync, you always want to cap your fps at/below your max refresh.

If I had THAT much headroom getting 200+ fps I would just start using DSR or increase the resolution scaling beyond 100%.

For fast paced games like Overwatch, I'd much prefer ULMB and forget G-Sync.

I've requested a return on mine. It's an absolutely fantastic monitor and worth every penny at 144Hz, but I bought it in part for the 165Hz increase. However little did I know it's overclocked. After 6-8 hours I'm convinced the latency is higher at that setting.

If you run it at 144Hz it's brilliant imo, i loved the PPI.

You're just repeating what I've been telling him. rolleyes.gif

Latency in what, exactly? To me it feels more responsive in 165hz. Your computer is probably just struggling to run your games at native resolution which will make it feel a bit unresponsive. Drop your resolution and that feeling should go away, or buy a better GPU.

.

Statements like that are meaningless without objective measurements. If anything, 165 Hz frames arrive slightly faster so there will be less input lag. The G-sync T-Con scales completely lineally in testing. I always cringe when I hear people say "belief, convinced, feel".

Yeah I'm not sure how overclocking a display introduces noticeable input lag. By that logic the Acer X34 with it's 40Hz overclock (almost DOUBLE the overclock value on this monitor which is 21Hz) should have an insane amount of input lag, yet as we all know it doesn't. and it has been actually measured using proper equipment.

Yeah, if you're getting input lag, it's because your computer can't handle the resolution well. Lower FPS = less responsive mouse input, Higher FPS = more responsive mouse input. Also, your typical DPI you've been using on your mouse is going to feel slower and more sluggish if you're coming from a lower resolution, as the cursor has more pixels to move across. I can assure you, there is no extra input lag with the higher refresh rate. I'm using 1000hz mouse at 165hz @ 1080p it's more responsive than in 144hz mode and more responsive than my BenQ.

Edit: Just tested it with humanbenchmark

165hz: 5 of 5 for 229ms
144hz: 5 of 5 for 248ms

No input lag.

The panel running at 1080p in Overwatch. The scaling is really good. I also figured out the volume control is for the headphone jack, which is surprisingly good. Every monitor headphone jack I've ever used had some type of static of interference, but this one is crystal clear.

Man wish I bought this instead of a second 1080 144hz. I still within the return period but don't want to return it since there nothing wrong with the monitor lol. Oh well, I'm wait a bit and hope it drops below 400
