Turn Vsync off?

    Turn Vsync off?


    As you probably all know, Windows8 forces vsync which makes it difficult for many of us to enjoy games in windowed mode.

    In Win7 you could disable it simply through turning off Aero, however this option doesn't seem to exist in Win8. Does anyone know if there's a way to force Vsync OFF?! I'd love to upgrade properly, but this is a real deal-breaker for me and many others. If not, does anyone know if Microsoft will address this issue? I seriously can't understand why there isn't the option.

    I'm using an ATI card so I'm unable to force it off in the settings (unlike Nvidia users )

    Thanks for your help!

    you can download RadeonPro an exclusive tool for amd graphics cards which can allow you to disable Vsync or even make a custom FPS limit and much more!. I use the program personally for all my games. You can download it here RadeonPro - AMD Radeon? Unleashed | Unleash the power of your AMD Radeon? graphics card with RadeonPro. Hope this helps!

    Thanks for the reply! This software is great, although unfortunately it doesn't force Vsync off when playing in windowed mode .

    Cheers for the help
