To Freesync or not to freesync, there is the question.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I heard that freesync would cap my 1070ti at max 60hz. 

1. Is it true 

2. Is a 120hz w/freesync better than a 120hz w/o freesync (with a 1070ti) 

3. What should I be looking for or I want to play games but not at an e-sport standard haha I won't be playing shooter online so I dont need a crazy refresh rate. 

 

Thx !!!

1. No, unless it's native refresh rate is 60hz.
2. Subjectively, I believe so, yes. Adaptive refresh is the second best thing since sliced bread.
3.This is a very broad question, so I'll simply say; the best thing that fits your budget.

1. No

2. If frame rates can drop below 120fps, yes

3. Freesync on high refresh rate monitor tends to not add much to the price, so I would opt for it regardless.

Even if the native refresh rate is 60hz, it wouldn't cap FPS at 60. It only goes into effect when your fps is lower than the refresh rate. at 1000 fps with a 60hz monitor, it'd still be 1000fps. If it was 40 fps on a 60hz monitor, it would change the monitor to 40hz. (iirc)
