i have a 1070 but im forced to play with all low settings to cope with the input lag. any higher and game makes aiming sluggish and my accuracy can drop a few % which is a big deal as it can be a couple of ranks worth of performance difference.
do they add the input lag on purpose to stop people who want to play on high graphics settings having an ‘advantage’. its so annoying you have to have the game look like potato just for it to run responsively.
does anyone get below 5ms?
does anyone know if 240hz monitor reduces the input lag?
Im also on 1070, and get around 180-200fps stable while 1070 is still only 60% usage. What is your CPU and ram? Overwatch is very CPU and ram heavy if you want to keep a stable high framerate without lag.
ive done everything i can think, game is set to high priority, gpu is set for max performance, in game settings are all as recommended,. what fps and lag ms do you get?
my game is totally playable i just want to try and get any lag as low as possible because it can mean the difference between a few % accuracy.
yeah, its all optimised for performance. maybe 10-20ms of input lag is ok and normal for the average player but i would like at least 5ms. i used to have a 15ms monitor and then got a 1 ms monitor and did side by side reaction speed test and the 15ms monitor significantly bottlenecked reaction speed. its horrific that the game can add that kind of thing onto your game on top of the ping, it is a competative issue because it undermines fair competition.
Did you tried the reduced buffering option ingame? Also in Nvidia control, find program setting, under overwatch, change max pre render frame to 1 should help too. Also you can find overwatch.exe, rightclick, in properties, choose disable full screen optimization.
