Default People say Dx10 is laggier, stutters more, etc. Try this.

D3Doverrider comes with rivatuner. It is located in the tools directory. Load it up and turn on vsync and triplebuffering. This forces triple buffering in dx10. Fixes all the crap for me and has for a while under xp, vista and 7. Running a GTX 480 now and same deal. Without it SOME games feel just sloppy. This seems to fix it for me. Also I tend to use nhnacer and set prerendered frames at 1 as opposed to 3. Just dont set it to 0 or CRASH !!

What you recommended would help in some games but other games could experiance more issues.

I've had this program load at startup, forcing vsync and triple buffering for several years now. Its an indispensable application IMO.

D3Doverrider is one of the big reasons I like pc gaming.

Looks like a great application.
Does it work on ATI cards, and can it be used in all games with noticeable results?

The result is generally that your frame rate is capped to your refresh rate, and you get no screen tearing and generally more consistent frame rates.

If for some reason it doesn't work well (or at all) in a game, D3DOverrider actually has application profiles built in so that you can create ones for programs that don't like to have these settings forced on. Some older games don't like it, and some low budget or 2D games may have issues with forced vsync and triple buffering, but honestly I can't remember the last time I had to disable it on an actual game.

Just make sure to turn it off while benchmarking, or create profiles for your benchmark programs. It will cap your frame rates, which ruins benchmark scores.

Prolly only works in fullscreen, most of my mmo's and games i play in windows

What i would really like to see is triple buffer and vsync forced in windows 7 desktop since it's using dx to render desktop i think.

Actually, I'm pretty sure that buffer flipping in DirectDraw only works in exclusive mode (ie. fullscreen), and I think that is the only function that explicitly waits for Vsync.

I wish vsync worked in windows.

WOW, I've only just noticed that since you said it, even Linux composting managers can use VSync.

The D3Doverrider does seem to work well in Just Cause 2 for me though.

Wait i though we weren't allowed to link to rivatuner what if the guy who made rivatuner finds out that rivatuner is being linked from NVNews?

Or that i've put lemonparty in the links instead.

it is also important to mention that some anti-cheating systems can sometimes detect it as a hack

Sounds like you all just bought into the Vista/7 DX10/11 Microsoft marketing department.

Good luck.
