I just bought an RTX 2080 to match with my Alienware AW3418DW and installed it last night. Overall, the thing is a massive improvement over the RX580 I had. Previously, the RX580 was matched with a Freesync monitor so I never had screen tearing.
After hooking this card up, the FPS and everything was great, but there was periodic screen tearing. Any cause for the tearing? Since this monitor is 100hZ/120hZ, should I frame cap these games to that, or does G-Sync take care of that automatically? Any other things I need to know about G-Sync?
