Hi guys, I have a quick question regarding high refresh rate during gaming. I'm relatively new to PC gaming and shooter games in general and I heard that high refresh rate can help you improve a lot by giving smoother gameplay.
Around 6 months back I have purchased a BenQ XL2720Z which is a 1080p 144hz monitor. I've been using it to game ever since I had it and I just discovered yesterday that it was not by default set to 144Hz refresh rate but windows had it at 60hz.
I changed it to 144hz(in windows 10) by going to display settings -> advanced display settings -> display adapter properties -> monitor tab
I own a GTX 980 GPU and I play on EPIC settings(which is the maximum) and I have Vsync turned on. The issue is, I heard that FPS and refresh rate are directly correlated. I am only getting a maximum of 70FPS from my in game performance tab viewer, does that mean I am NOT playing the game on 144hz and just on around 70hz?
Need advice and tips on what can be done.
Thanks in advance, Saif.
