Ok so whenever I play CODAW in full screen I have the following problem with the "sync every frame" option enabled, basically the game locks down to 29.9fps with the occasional squirt upto 59.9 and occasional dips down to 23.9, however if I turn vsync off the framerate NEVER dips below 60 (spends most of it's time in the low hundreds in fact) but the tearing is intolerable. if I run the game in windowed borderless mode without vsync again the frame rates are consistently higher than 60 however the on screen movement is juddery due to uneven frame delivery and once again enabling vsync causes the frames to hover around 29.9. Any suggestions?
