How to stop screen tearing without Vsync?

To solve stop screen tearing in nvidia graphic card  go to nvidia control panel and then go to 3D settings manager and set settings to texturing settings on ultra. And some settings on Performance instead of quality. Set video settings and sound settings as told in the article and you will be able to enjoy your PC without screen tearing. 


Screen tearing is most common when you play games on your computer. This happens when the monitor and graphics card (GPU) are out of sync. The screen will tear when the top of the monitor shows a different frame than the bottom. Vsync was initially created to stop screen tearing. It reduces the maximum game FPS to monitor the refresh rate.

However, VSync can also cause FPS drops. You can experience a drop in fps of up to 30fps. Triple buffering may solve the problem but can also lead to other problems. You can fix screen tearing with Vsync.

So how we can solve it?

There are currently only two options to stop screen tearing. Nvidia Inspector is a third-party tool that can be used to inspect Nvidia GPUs. However, it does not guarantee a permanent solution and may not work for everyone. Purchase a new monitor compatible with Nvidia or AMD’s Sync technology. You don’t have to rely on Vsync to stop screen tearing. Still, you will have problems with tearing, input drops, fps drops, and stuttering

Step-by-Step Tutorial for Stopping Screen Tearing  Solution for Nvidia.

Step 1.

Right-click on your desktop to open the Nvidia Control Panel. A menu will appear where you can find the NVIDIA control panel option. Click to open it. Not all these settings are to be applied in the 3D settings tab.

 Next, go to 3D Settings and Manage 3D Settings. Scroll down to the following options in the Settings menu and make the necessary changes. Set Max Frame Rate to 60fps or 75fps if your monitor is 75Hz.

This will improve the game’s Performance and reduce bottlenecks. Set low latency to ultra mode.

Ambient Occlusion set it to Performance. If your GPU is midrange. It won’t give you too much Quality, but it will focus more on Performance and smoothness. You can set it to Quality if you have a powerful GPU, such as RTX 2080 or above.

This is because your graphics card can keep up with speed. It can also be set to Power management mode, prioritizing maximum Performance.

Texture filtering-Quality set it to High-Performance Triple buffering. This will make VSync more fluid. If you’ve selected High Performance, set texture filtering– Trilinear optimization to ON.

Step 2. Texture filtering-Negative LOD bias:

Set it to Allow if High Performance is selected. It would be best if you focused on high performance and not on Quality. Quality is more concerned with texture quality.

 The High-performance configuration is for you if you want smooth Performance, high FPS, and a great user experience.

Optimize for Compute Performance  set it to OFF as we only run games and not other applications. Select your OpenGL rendering GPU.

Multi-Frame Sampled AA (MFAA), set it to ON. This will keep the Antialiasing in place and make it easier.

DSR– Factors should be set to OFF as it will lower your Performance.

 CUDA-GPUs Make sure to select your graphics card.

Antialiasing – Transparency set it at Multisample to get the best Performance.

 Also, Antialiasing– Mode set it to Application-controlled.

 Antialiasing – Gama correction turn it on.

Anisotropic filtering set it to Application-controlled.

Image Sharpening sets it to OFF, but you can enable GPU Scaling. Once you’ve completed all the Settings, click on Apply.

 To make all changes take effect, click on Apply in the upper right corner.

Configure Surround and PhysX

Next, click on the Configure Surround and PhysX tab. Select your graphics card in the PhysX.

 Step 3

Select the second tab, Display, to make the changes. Select the maximum refresh rate and resolution. Click on applied.

 Select  NVIDIA color settings. Make sure to select the Highest Desktop depth and Full Output dynamic range.

You can also go to Adjust desktop color settings. Select the color you want. The following enhancements can be applied to adjust the Digital Vibrance to your liking. The default setting of 50% is usually fine.

Step 4. Configure video settings

Next, open the third tab, Video, and make these changes.

Change the video color settings.

Select the Advanced tab.

Make sure to set the Dynamic range to Full.

Adjust video image settings.

Use the NVIDIA settings to enable Edge Enhancement or Noise Reduction. Make sure to click Apply at the end.

 Step 5

 Launch the game and then go to Graphics settings. Disable V-Sync in the game. Finally,Enjoy your game without screen tearing or Vsync off. There will also be no input lag and input delays.

Solution for AMD

 Step 1

Open AMD Radeon Software. Right-click on your desktop background to open AMD Radeon Software. A menu will pop up where you’ll find the AMD Radeon Software option. This option is above the View option.

Step 2

Open the Settings – Graphics section. Select your Graphics Profile to enable Radeon Anti-Lag and Radeon Image Sharpening. Disable Verticle Refresh (VSync). To ensure that V-Sync remains disabled, set it to Always on.

 Step 3.

 Antialiasing sets it to Use application settings.

 Antialiasing set it to Multisampling. Morphological Antialiasing disable it.  Also disable the Anisotropic Filtering. Texture Filtering Quality enables it. Surface Format Optimization should be set to Enabled.

You must set the Tessellation Mode to Override app settings. Please set it to 8x Maximum Tessellation Level. It will automatically do this if you have chosen the eSports preset.

Step 4. Display.

Next, visit the Display section. So, in the Display Options, if you have an AMD FreeSync or NVIDIA G-Sync monitor, you need to set VRR (Variable-refresh-rate Technology) to Enabled. This will eliminate the screen teaser and decrease input lag.

Or you can’t enable the VRR option if you don’t have G-sync or free sync. You don’t have to worry. There is an alternative. Go to Graphics and enable Radeon Enhanced Sync. This alternative to FreeSync will eliminate input lag and visual tearing.

Most Details, Textures, and Effects settings should be set to Ultra or High.


We hope you now know how to stop screen-tearing using v-sync disabled. Enjoy playing your game Tear-Free, without any input lags or delays.
