Nvidia Freesync Tearing

I know it's still a fairly new implementation, but I'm hoping there's a similar problem when using Freesync with AMD.

I have a LG 29UM69G and the Freesync range is 40-75 stock, now when I test Freesync with Pendulum and play Just Cause 3 there's tearing on the bottom part of the screen, about a inch of tearing. I'm limiting frames to 73 with RTSS and at no point is frames dipping below 40.

Is there something I can tweak in CRU to help fix this?

Enable vsync. You will not get input-lag from that as long as your frame rate is capped below the maximum refresh rate.

As mentioned, enable V-Sync, but not in-game, in the NVCP. Also, cap fps 2-3 below your refresh rate. Read the blurbusters G-Sync 101 guide if you'd like to learn why this is the best way to use G-Sync.

Is your refresh rate changing? Open your OSD to see.

If you're new to using gsync make sure it's actually running. You can enable the on screen display for testing in the Nvidia control panel, and if your monitor has a built-in refresh rate counter like mine does you can also use that to verify. The refresh rate should fluctuate from the max/default or at least go to whatever you have it capped at (you should cap a few FPS under) depending on your frame rate.

Gsync can be really finicky at times, depending on the game. I've had it setup correctly before (or so I thought), only to have it not work or crash/hang. I go reset all the settings to the same values or reinstall my video drivers and somehow that fixes it. Point is, it's touchy.

Also, as others said above you want vsync ON in the nvidia control panel but OFF inside the game's settings. You should also use RTSS or a game's built in FPS limiter to limit your framerate to a few frames below your monitor's limit. For example, if your monitor is 120Hz then set your limit at 117 fps.

Yes enabling vsync in NVCP and capping fps 2 (i prefer 3) below your maximum hz will give you 0 screen tearing and not add any additional input delay. It is also advisable to cap your fps using ingame means first, but if the game doesn't offer any way to cap fps then RTSS is the second best option but it will add half a frame of input delay.

My OSD doesn't have a Refresh Rate monitor.

I already enabled the G-Sync indicator and verified G-Sync / Freesync is actually attempting to smooth things out with Nvidia Pendulum and AMD Windmill, along with a couple light gaming sessions.

Nvidia has enabled adaptive sync on hundreds of monitors, but only a handful are 100% working. Is your monitor on the list?


If not, it might be awhile if nvidia actually starts going through monitors and adding driver updates with them.


For now, can you simply set the monitor to a static 70 or 75hz, and play games without issues? or does it seem to choke a bit?

After a bit more reading it seems to be the typical G-Sync behaviour. Partial tearing at the bottom of the screen when near the upper VRR range. And the typical usage for G-Sync and Freesync is V-Sync enabled in the driver and FPS limit in-game or RTSS.
