    Windowed Mode G-Sync problem


    I seem to have an issue with Windows 10 Windowed Mode and G-Sync with any game that runs above the screen refresh rate and it's really beginning to bug me.

    Something in the Borderless Windowed mode seems to bypass any configuration I make and caps me at the refresh rate with G-Sync enabled. If I then switch to Fullscreen mode mid game with G-Sync still enabled the fps unlocks and sets itself much higher than the 143 forced setting.

    I have tried both G-Sync and V-Sync options alone or together with the same outcome 143 frames. If I then go ahead and disable G-Sync for windowed and fullscreen mode and load the game in windowed mode the fps is uncapped, I don't understand it :/. G-Sync is not supposed to cap the frame rate at the refresh rate.

    How do I fix this with Windowed Mode? I recently switched to a dual monitor set up so windowed mode would be great if I could fix this problem.

    I made a slight mistake with the above post. V-Sync alone uncaps the frame rate in windowed mode.

    It seems to be a Windows and G-Sync issue in Windowed Mode with any game that is capable of going beyond 144 fps, they are all being capped slightly below the refresh rate 142/143 fps without a cap in place.

    If G-Sync is disabled windowed mode gaming is uncapped. If G-Sync is enabled in fullscreen the games are uncapped...As soon as I re-enable G-Sync with Windowed+Fullscreen the cap returns with fullscreen windowed, borderless mode etc.

    Also, Happy Holidays or Merry Christmas to all, hopefully get a response soon.

    Running in Gsync it will be a little under the intial mhz of the monitor

    if the max refresh rate is 144 it will be something like 143.9 because it will not fully max out because of that .1

    Gsync caps the refresh rate in a lot of things such as benchmarks people didn't believe me when i told them but Gsync locks you in at the monitor refresh rate

    if you are running a 2560x 1440 or higher it will stick with the monitors mhz and keep the frames to the same number Gsync locks what ever your monitor can do it was meant to scale and to keep the frames from tearing so pretty much it will allow you only as much as the monitor can support but will do it without tearing or input lag pretty much Gsync is a better Vsync with a higher cap value
