If a game is capped at 60FPS while running on a 144Hz monitor, will I notice any abnormalities?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

A lot of the games I love to play tend to be capped at 60FPS by the developers, for better or for worse. I'm curious and would like to ask a question before spending the money on a 144Hz monitor, will I notice anything off about the smoothness when the game is capped at 60? Games like Dark Souls, Sekiro, etc.

I play these on my monitor, and despite the bummer of limited frames, they are just the standard 60fps experience

 

thankfully they have that crisp 1440p and 4k option.


I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

Is your monitor Freesync or G-Sync?

Would you mind disabling the adaptive sync options and still seeing if those games feel smooth at 60FPS?

adaptive sync doesn't make it smoother unless you're dropping frames, but the titan in my PC can't really drop frames in those games. If you're maintaining 60 fps, there'll be no tearing and smooth gameplay overall.

Try it out, it would be completely unplayable to me (I tried) 

 

Framerate and refresh rate must be in sync, I thought that's common sense,  but apparently isn't and people are completely insensitive to this?! 

 

PS: I would get a 120hz monitor if those are available.

If you could find a 24" 1440p 120Hz monitor for me, I would love that. (Seriously, I would)

Yeah I think the marketing gag with 1440/144 just works too well...!

 

Although at least there should be 240hz displays available? 

 

I'm not really in the market,  totally content with my 7 year old Asus heh,  next monitor will be probably 1440/60 perhaps with gsync 

 

IF they make those haha x)
