Variable Refresh reduces tearing by telling the monitor only to draw a new image when it receives a new image to actually draw. It synchs the GPU output with the Display. If you have it, you should use it 🙂

I personally have it off with G-Sync. While most games are OK, some like Battlefield V i find it causes issues.

For me VRR is an always-on-feature. But i don't know if the toggle in windows settings actually does anything when you already enable freesync/G-sync in your GPU drivers. I just leave it enabled.

If someone did not use reason to reach their conclusion in the first place, you cannot use reason to convince them otherwise.

I've tried it but if every game I either can't notice a difference or it feels worse to have it enabled.

My main monitor also has a weird issue where some games in windowed mode cause the right have of the screen to flicker (the backlight, not the image). Idk, it only happens in certain games with G-Sync enabled.

I'm genuinely curious if there's something I'm missing considering how positive LTT, Bitwit, etc. seem to be about it.

why no dark mode?
