no not the fps cap, the game tic. they let you set your fps cap at the same as the game tic so that everything is in sync but even if you turn vsync off the game logic still runs at 30hz.
and rth, like i said this has nothing to do with refresh rate either, it is simply how many times a second the game logic updates.
