correct way to disable vsync, and enable "max frame" setting in nvcp?

Trying to understand the correct method to use the option "Max frame" setting in nvcp for certain games. So, inside NVCP and under the specific game profile tab, I set "ENABLE MAX FRAME LIMIT to 144" and set Vsync to application controlled, then go inside the game and disable vsync, and do i also set the max frame inside the game as well to 144, or leave Render max frame to disable, and let the nvcp take over and do its thing... Im just confused here.. thanks BTW, the games are all ubisoft titles like ghost recon, and the farcrys... thanks

That's actually a good question and I'm sort of trying to figure out some details myself since this is a new driver feature.

Mine has been working really well with G-Sync. Since I don't ever use Vsync I have it turned off completely and left my FPS limit at 140 (to avoid G-Sync stuttering) and turned my game FPS limiters off.
If you do use Vsync you should be able to continue using it like normal without any changes.

You can leave both NV's limiter and the game limiter on but it may introduce more latency or in the worst case scenario, stuttering.
I can't link it since I'm at work but battle(non)sense on YT did a good comparison between NV vs RTSS vs in-game latency, in-game is the best choice but NV is just easier and has 1-2ms of latency added.

You should turn V-sync on in the NVCP (and off in-game). G-sync works optimally when V-sync is on.

Agreed, it's supposed to help with the choppiness you may see with sudden FPS drops while within G-Sync FPS ranges and help with frame variances but in my case it tends to make it worse and causes the game to stutter instead so I leave it off.

can someone upload a pic of this "new setting"

here's how I run g-sync -

NVCP >> 3d settings >> pref refresh >> highest available
NVCP >> 3d settings >> monitor tech >> gsync
NVCP >> 3d settings >> power management >> prefer maximum (not g-sync related, but a must)
NVCP >> 3d settings >> V-sync >> ON (or let app decide, and on in app... really depends on the title sometimes, only switch to app controlled if V/Gsync appears to not be functioning in title, not functioning = tearing)
change resolution >> set max refresh rate (confirm color settings are how you want them while you're in there)
n if you wanna get wonky - no scaling in Adjust desktop. (in honor of r0ach)

R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
If something appears too good to be true, it probably is.
Best R0ach Quote of all time : TLDR: Haswell might be the last legit gaming platform unless mice get their own non-USB interface on some newer architecture.

OMG thank you for this link. I have never set anything in the NVCP before and just unchecked v-sync in games. These tweaks, have changed my whole experience with my monitor. God I feel like a noob now.
