    Heh. I have an old Acer all-in-one that has a TN LCD, which I've overclocked to 100 Hz. Coming back to my 13.3" notebook with a practically locked-to-60 IPS display, I can see the stutter. I play Witcher 3 on medium settings at 30 FPS. It hurts, but it's playable.

    I gotta be honest with you, I couldn't handle 30fps. For some reason it's just super noticeable on PC games, even though consoles run at 30fps.

    If the only way I could run a game was at 30fps, I'd sooner not play it and add it to my wish list to get when computer technology had passed that game engine by, lol.

    That's what I did with Dragon Age Inquisition. My old PC couldn't handle it, so I just waited a few years until I had naturally upgraded to one that could, bought the GOTY for $5 and am now playing it at max details.

    Haha, I know, eh? Once you see > 60 FPS, you can't go lower. As for me, I've seen the smoothness of high refresh rates, and I am adamant about also having the contrast and colour accuracy of IPS, so I will wait for a reasonably-priced > 100 Hz, 25" IPS monitor. 13" has gotten too small, and I have free neck and shoulder pain to show for it. :(

    Yeah 60 FPS is my minimum. I can notice up to near 90 FPS. Beyond that, I can't notice much difference between 90 and 144Hz.

    I haven't installed GFE in awhile, I may have some time this week and I can compare with the dozens of BF1 sessions I have recorded. I'm at 115 FPS and I don't really need GFE screwing with my settings but it would be interesting to see what it does.

    This Quite mode seems like a whole lot of fuss over nothing. Just go to RTSS and limit your frames to 30fps if you're that concerned about noise. Big whoop.

    GFE also uses game settings changes to reduce CPU / GPU load temps and therefore fan noise.

    Last I read Nvidia had over 400 Whisper Mode game profiles created, and they are still adjusting them from owner feedback as in the video.

    I don't even know what to think about this.
