Monitor and framerate

Hiro Hamada
 Share

If I buy a 60Hz monitor and play mafia 3 on it with a gtx 1070ti card, will I get more than 60fps on it? My friend has a 60Hz monitor and he is saying the fps varies from game to game and its all more than 60fps in his 60hz monitor

 

Is that true?

It depends on the rest of your system and in-game settings.

Main system: i7 8700k 5Ghz / Asus Prime Z370-A / Corsair Vengeance 2x8GB 3000Mhz / Asus TUF RTX3080 / EVGA 750W GQ / Fractal Design Meshify C

Your system can produce more than 60 FPS, but the monitor will physically be unable to display more than 60 FPS as it is capped due to it being 60Hz. Essentially it can be looked at as "wasted performance", though that is good as it gives you sort of a buffer when the frames dip as things get crazy on screen. 

 

Without that buffer, it is more likely you'll notice/ perceive the significant drop in frame rate as things get hairy.

 Explanation, he talks about the difference in frame rates and refresh rates at the beginning
