    GSync and Double/Triple buffering in WoW

    Hi Guys,

    I am thinking about getting a Gsync monitor soon, read up on Blurbuster's Gsync101 guide. In the guide it suggested to turn off both double and triple buffering.

    What I soon realised is that you can't actually turn both double/triple buffering off in wow, you have to select one.

    I guess my question is: which one should I select? Double or triple buffering? Or is there another way to disable it completely?

    Any advice here would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,
    Beltx

    Running WoW on my 3900x / 2070S in 1440P 144hz with Gsync and it runs butter smooth, it's a whole new world compared to 60hz
    Just disable vsync in wow and you are fine.

    Do you have triple buffering enabled or disabled?

    Doesn't it only do that with Vsync on?

    Weird, I see no difference
    I have enough of EA ruining great franchises and studios, forcing DRM and Origin on their games, releasing incomplete games only to sell day-1 DLCs or spill dozens of DLCs, and then saying it, and microtransactions, is what players want, stopping players from giving EA games poor reviews, as well as deflecting complaints with cheap PR tricks.

    I'm not going to buy any game by EA as long as they continue those practices.

    Vsync and triple buffering disabled. Fast sync in the nvidia panel activated.

    What do you mean?
    You see/feel no difference between 60 and 144 FPS?
    I mean obviously if your PC cannot deliver 90+ FPS you will not get the benefit.

    Seems independent of Vsync. I play with Vsync off but the tooltip still says that when Triple Buffering is off then Double Buffering will be selected.

    I'll admit I didn't really read the tooltip, but that seems kinda silly.

    After having experienced 120+fps I couldn't really go back to 60. My biggest problem with consoles
