Do you guys enable the VRR setting in windows 11 i thing its put on by default if you have a gsync/freesync monitor connected, surely it would conflict with the nvidia gsync settings ? thx

Yeap thats the option i get when the screen is in gaming mode (S95b)

I can also put up a display header on my OLED that shows me the current res + the fps fluctuating

It says it's for games that don't support VRR but I thought VRR was a wholly hardware related thing. Tried with it both disabled and enabled, Couldn't tell a difference.

It is not a replacement (or alternative) for FreeSync/G-Sync, it is a compatibility "hack" to make a wider variety of applications (mostly games) work with any implementation of VRR that might be present (it probably aids with stuff like FastSync as well but I've not checked that). Nominally leave it enabled unless you have issues.

Yeah I figured as much, Although I always thought variable refresh rate was solely a hardware aspect rather than needing software.

Though it is mostly a hardware thing it needs a certain amount of information from the software and Window's desktop compositing isn't friendly with it if you have more than one thing updating at different frame rates i.e. games which don't use an exclusive fullscreen mode. This setting tries to make applications play nice with Window's rendering.

It states that the VRR setting is for games that don't support VRR. Not sure what this means, as all games support it on PC as far as I am aware. It's a graphics card setting rather than game specific. If you enable it through Nvidia control panel and disable V-Sync in game then it's all done.
