What is causing screen tearing effect?

Hi my specs are in the tags, I recently upgraded cpu from i3 6100 to a ryzen 5 2600 because it was bottlenecking my gpu while playing apex legends. However now I'm getting a constant 60fps at 1080p but notice a stutter effect and the fps doesn't drop. Any idea about settings in game and nvidea which may help? I've tried the vsync options and I have a pretty simple monitor nothing like 144hz just the default I guess

How's your internet connection? You could be having internet lag or even server-side lag. Which is very common with these types of games even if your client is running at a smooth 60fps. 

 

Does it do it in other games too?

Isn't tearing kinda the opposite of stutter ?

Which one of 2 do you have ?

make sure you're on fullscreen and not borderless window. Try different resolutions. Have you gone into Nvidia control panel and changed the 3d application options for apex's .exe specifically?
