When I first started up the game,I wasn't sure why the fps was locket 30.Then I found that there was a V-sync half setting.

I turned it off I got 40-50fps but after fininishing the prologue,the fps dropped so whenever I drove fast it drops below 30 which wasn't good.

 

Same case with online but even fewer fps than SP and more fluctuations.I realised that my laptop isn't the best with it's dual-core hyperthreading and low-mid range gpu :/.

 

Since then I have the V-sync set to half and it plays like the New-gen consoles with better quality.I wish I had 60fps constant at the lowest but I'd rather have 30fps constant than 30-40 fps dips.To be honest it's actually smooth(not better than 60 obviously).On the whole R* has done amazing Optimization in my opinion aside from techinical problems.However I heard some people have hard time staying at constant 60fps when driving etc even with a good rig.

 

What is your setting?share your thoughts :)

 

Thanks for Reading

Agree that the optimization is not as good as they said, but i know i play it stable 30/40/50 fps, so stable. Not sure what fps tho. A huge improvement from GTA IV, R* better keep up the good work unlike some developers *ahem* ubisoft *ahem*

I play with vsync on

Runs great on my end, never dips below 60fps on a combination of high and very high settings with no msaa. I can't complain; Also: v-sync on, of course.

 

 

 

Btw, for those who complained about their framerate locking at exactly 30 when v sync is on, try alt tabbing the game, or turning v sync off and then on again, it's almost like if there was non triple buffered v sync on grass spots :O weird. (your framerate will stil drop below 60, but won't be 30, that was my experience before I tweaked the settings for perfect 60 fps, I guess it's a bug that needs to be patched).

144hz monitor here. V-sync off. 90fps heaven. :-)

Off. Turning it on or half gives me screen tearing for some reason.

G sync is good but flickers slightly at low fps.

 

Is that a known problem with g-sync?

 

I want a g-sync monitor badly but i'm holding off until there's one with 1080p IPS

For a 144hz monitor, half is a good balance, since getting 144fps constant is practically impossible, at least for very high settings.

For some reason turning on vsync through the ingame settings didnt work for me... I still had screen tearing and slow downs...

 

I had to turn on vsync through the nvidia control panel and in the game settings to get it to work right...

If I'm getting a 144 Hz monitor, I'd get an adaptive sync monitor, either G-Sync or FreeSync. Non-adaptive 144Hz monitors are, for me, retarded.

Off in the game, but on in Nvidia control panel.

O.k, for all those that are turning V-sync off....

 

Do you find that the game speeds up and down all the time?

 

Surely that would make racing very hard since it would mess up your timing etc....

On low end computer (720p~30fps) I have noticed that while Vsync is off car controls lags to respond on key press or release. This could be annoying while on mission etc. Did enyone else noticed this?

No, but if this is happening then your GPU is over encumbered so you need to lower your settings or cap your framerate until your GPU isn't at 100% usage.
