Freesync

Let's say a 75Hz display with the Freesync range of 40-75Hz. Which one is better, 45fps with Freesync on or 100fps (out of the Freesync range and display capability)?

Of course 100fps would be better. But why not just lock FPS at 72-74FPS to get advantage of FreeSync?

Averages are meaningless, what makes gaming smooth and fluid is consistency, solid frametimes without going up and down all the time.

 

Picture like this, the whole reason why adaptive sync exists is because for the longest time we had shitty quad-cores on the mainstream that weren't enough for the top gear GPUs, when you played a game on max settings it was common for you to have fps dips if actions heated up too much.

 

Adaptive sync is a method to keep experience smooth when these dips happen, but if you could have your game running perfect on a locked fps never going down from it adaptive sync becomes redundant as there is nothing for it to fix, the game is smooth already.

 

So if you have hardware that in a game can do between the 75fps to say 55fps depending on where or what you're doing Freesync would ensure all feels smooth, but if you had a hardware that's so good it can v-sync on the 75hz always with no drops then freesync becomes redundant.

if your system drops frames at 100fps then you will having to cap the frames at 75fps anyway, and you'll end up where you started.

My confusion is should I get an RX 460 2GB ($77) or GTX 1050Ti ($112), because I can optimize in-game settings to achieve at least 75fps and cap my fps at 75fps to get in the Freesync range of the RX 460 in PUBG & Fortnite. While the GTX 1050Ti can get at least 100+fps (with optimized in-game settings) without capping the fps.

The RX570 has been a very popular alternative for 1080p gaming.

 

I don't think the RX560 is worth it, too low performance, the GTX 1050 Ti should offer more but given how the RX 570 is within its price range and you get Freesync there that's the best alternative.

I'm sorry, what I mean is, RX 460 40-50fps at 1080p high settings with Freesync on or GTX 1050Ti 90-100fps at 1080p optimized settings without Freesync.

The cheapest RX 570 (used) in my country are at $140, my budget is really tight, and I only play E-Sports games btw (League & CS:GO), Fortnite & PUBG will be my heaviest games.

Honestly, 140$ is an excellent price and deal, it'd last with you at 1080p for a great while and all, considering you're willing to pay the 112$ for the 1050 Ti.

 

But if absolutely want to cheap out, I suppose the 1050 Ti makes better sense than the RX560.

I just found an RX 470 4GB for $115, here's the link: https://www.bukalapak.com/p/komputer/hardware/vga/x76zp3-jual-rx-470-4gb-ddr5-mulus-masih-garansi?utm_source=apps

Is this legit?

Might be, I'm not going to say yes or not about it being legit but I can say for 115$ it is a good deal.

I've checked PowerColor's website and I think they don't have an RX 470 with that (the one in the link) model, they only have the Red Devil lineups.
