[Deprecated] Possible fix for some lags when high FPS but the game is not smooth [2018, nVidia only]
By VIT
Since driver R445.75 "FRL2 mode" setting has been removed. This guide works only for old driver versions.

I found 1 tweak, which greatly helped me to make the game smoother and more responsive.

Symptoms
  • game not smooth with high fps (300+) 144hz, but smooth with Vsync=On
  • choppy players animations
  • bad feel spray
  • weird hitreg
  • inconstant aim (actually unstable input lag)
Solution
tweak only for nVidia:
  • Open nVidia Profile Inspector[github.com] v2.1.3.10 or newer up to 2.3.0.10
  • Select game - Counter-strike: Global Offensive
  • Find in section Sync and Refresh setting Frame Rate Limiter Mode
  • and set it to _DELAY_FLIP_BY_FLIPMETERING
    Newer ProfileInspector does not contain this option, instead of selecting presets, enter the numerical value= 4
    Or you can also choose a different mode with similar work: _ALLOW_ALL / _ALLOW_ALL_MAXWELL

  • Click Apply changes
  • Start CSGO and do ez headshots
    (These steps in the video)
Some info:
  • This mode causes the GPU to take more control of the changing frames, less control by OS/game engine. This stabilizes frametimes and animations.
  • The level of improvement is variable (from nothing to very noticeable) and system dependent.
  • This will not limit your fps.
  • I'm also using max pre-rendered frames = 1

Guys it worked for me, if you keep getting this message ''DRS_SetSetting failed: NVAPI_SETTING_NOT_FOUND'' error

only downgrade your nvidia drivers and you ready, for my 1660 Nvidia i used 460.89 version.
