Gsync 144hz monitor but tearing when FPS is below 100 and

Hi guys.

I notice that my monitor starts feeling jittery / teary in games when my FPS are lower than 100.

I have a dell 24" 1440p monitor with 144hz and can be overclocked to up to 165hz running on a 2080ti

In most games i get a decent 120-140fps on all ultra however in some games like gta 5, insurgency sandstorm when fps can dip to around 90-100, i start experiencing tearing.

I tried enabling gsync and even vsync together in game but it makes no difference

When FPS is above 120, its buttery smooth but when it dips to around 100, i can see that its not smooth at all.

What could be the issue here?

Are G-sync and V-sync both turned on in NVCP? You need both for G-sync to work optimally (including tearing-free). And you need V-sync to be OFF in games.
