144 Hz not really?

I asked this in the IRC chat however I sadly didn’t get a response.

Hey I have a slight problem with Suse. Recently I installed the nvidia drivers for my GTX 970 manually from the nvidia site (because the repo oned didn’t work). They seem to work and just to test I downloaded minecraft (no I don’t play it) and I got 300fps which is fine. However I use a 144Hz monitor. I changed the settings in the nvidia x settings and here is where it gets weird. My mouse seems to be moving in 144Hz but all windows and dragging of windows and even games run at 60hz even though vsync sets itself to 144.

Anyone knows why this is like this ?

Thanks in advance :slight_smile:
