By - | Views: 13,658

This is your once a month reminder to make sure your PC information is correct on your user profiles. A fresh batch of statistics is generated on the 1st of each month.

We've now added questions for your refresh rate too, so check them out.

You need to be logged in to see when you last updated your PC info!

You can see the statistics any time on this page.

PC Info is automatically purged if it hasn't been updated, or if you don't click the link to remain in for 2 years. This way we prevent too much stale data and don't hold onto your data for longer than required. If this is still correct and it has been a long time since you updated, you can simply click here to continue to be included. If this isn't correct, click here to go to your User Control Panel to update it!

Kinda stupid question about VRR (Variable refresh rate). Is it refer to
- monitor setting/system used?, or
- game setting?, or
- GPU setting?

For gaming.

Had to check my monitor's settings to find out what refresh rate it uses. Had no idea that VRR was a thing, so I guess I don't use that. :P

I've never seen a Variable Refresh Rate setting in a game, is that a new thing?

You don't set it. The game sends the frames in the speed it can and the monitor, if VRR is enabled and all, just displays them immediately. I guess you should disable max frame rate and V-Sync, though.

If you ask me, that's the one way it should be done and hopefully, one day, we'll look back and wonder what this ridiculous fixed frame rate and v-Sync was all about...

Well, it's a feature on monitors that you would enable on your system but the point of the question is if people use it overall.

Probably depends on how the driver does things. For gsync on NVidia it will just work when fps is below the monitor setting regardless of vsync (which still works if fps would exceed the monitor refresh).

Ok, but if it also is above vsync sometimes, you could/should also allow for that.

In theory, I like the new questions but the VRR one isn't clear unless you are the sort of person who has purposefully bought a variable refresh capable monitor. For everyone else, it may be opaque. My first thought was it was asking me if I used v-sync or if I just left the frame rate unlocked in my games.
