Like the title says, I have a bad stuttering or screen tearing issue, depending on vsync. I tear like mad with vsync off, even with my fps limited to 58 through nVidia Inspector. With vsync on, I get a very noticeable stutter, almost as if my computer freezes for a frame every second or so. I can handle it if there's really no other choice, but it's fairly annoying. Is there anything I can do?

 

I have a GTX 980 and my monitor is an Acer 60hz 1440p, connected with DisplayPort.

Moved from Win 7 to Internal Hardware - Hamluis.

If I'm posting, I probably have something horribly wrong with my computer, there's no obvious explanation for it, that's just the way it is.

Doesn't appear to be Win 7 issue, but a Steam/nVidia issue.  You might want to look at Other Links .

You do not provide us any information regarding your system specs your monitor model or if this is something that just started or has always been this way.

Louis, I appreciate the link, but I have issues with vsync both on and off. VSync causes an annoying stutter, which ultimately is more tolerable than tearing, but still annoying.  The link you provided doesn't seem to provide any insight. I've looked into a lot of different things, G-Sync for one, to prevent stuttering but it didn't have any noticeable effect.

 

Yeah - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009626 that's my monitor. I noticed the stutter with a 680, but the screen tearing didn't start until I had a 980, at least, from what I noticed.

 

Off the top of my head, I have 16GB DDR3 ram, and I think an i5 2570k (That's a guess, I'm not at my home computer currently)

 

The main reason I'm confused is that I get screen tearing when my fps is limited to 58, and I don't understand how that's possible. I know that vsync tends to stutter as when your fps goes to 59, vsync drops it to 30, from what I've read.

Well it sounds like your an excellent candidate for G-sync.

 

The tearing happens when your video card is capable of outputting display faster than your monitor can draw it

 

Screen stutter happens when your monitors refresh rate and your video card's output are not .. in sync ..

G-sync doesn't seem to do a thing when I turn it on. And I know the cause of V-Sync, when you're outputting frames faster than your monitor can display them, they get messed up and "torn" but I'm limiting frames to below my monitor's refresh rate and it's still tearing.

 

I'll toy with it a bit tonight when I get home from work and see if I can't get G-sync to actually do something.
