Forums - PC Discussion - Far Cry 3 vsync and frame buffering.

Tagged games:

Far cry 3 allows you vsync for 1 or 2 frame as well as max buffered frames from 0-5. I would like to know which setting is the smoothest and also the difference between the settings.

My computer is:

2 gtx 570 hd 310.70 driver

Intel core i5-3570k

8GB ram

Around the Network

just experiment and find out what works best for you on your system.
If you are using Vsync, max buffered frames should be set to 2 or 3, 3 should make performance smoother but it may cause a tiny bit of extra latency, aka the time it takes the game to show the result of your input but most people won't notice the difference as long as you have a decent framerate.
