U are perfectly right. It's exactly what happens and it's a waste of frames, but it doesn't hurt that much and the performance gain was pretty big for me. Setting the refresh rate manually at maximum in compiz improved the situation a little, but not as much as disabling sync to vblank.

I'm loading the driver settings at boot up via "nvidia-setting -l" with a script just before I load compiz-manager and it works perfectly for me.

And sorry for the misunderstanding.. my system is a desktop computer .
