I have a problem regarding screen tearing.
Lately, while testing mods, i have been getting some horizontal screen tearing. Its not static, but scrolls up or down the screen when moving in game. As far as i know this is an issue when the refresh rates of the monitor and my video card refresh rate in skyrim are mis matched, but im not expert :P This has been going on for a few weeks, but have ignored it due to time constraints. I previously did not get screen tearing when using a 58 fps cap.
My monitors refresh rate is 60hz
My most preferred setting is capping my fps to 58 using Nvidia Inspector, which reduces stuttering and input lag for me. Its also noted that this setting is for 60hz monitors. This is odd because screen tearing should not occur at below 60 fps, as far as i know? And yet im experiencing it at 58 fps and below.
I also tried capping at 60 fps but screen tearing still occurs.
By default i have in game (iPresentInterval) vsync turned off, due to the input lag i get with it. And since i never go over 60 fps, i have no physics problems either. However, turning it on, or forcing vsync on using NI, does not get rid of the screen tearing either.
I also tried rolling back my nvidia drivers, using a clean uninstall method, but i still occasionally get screen tearing while trying out above options.
So im clueless as to why im getting tearing now, any help would be much appreciated :)
