Overclock Refresh Rate in Wayland

I can OC my monitor to 75Hz under Xorg with my GTX-1660 using nVidia's drivers and not the open source drivers.

However, when I try to do the same with Wayland, it's not taking effect after I add the following kernel parameter in grub. I have verified the parameter is present in the grub boot menu so it is there:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash rd.udev.log_priority=3 vt.global_cursor_default=0 loglevel=3 nvidia_drm.modeset=1 ibt=off video=DP-1:[email protected]

DP-1 is my display port monitor. I also have an HDMI-A-1 monitor as well that I can OC to 75Hz in Xorg.

However, when I reboot and log in using the Wayland protocol, display settings states that 60Hz is the max I can go to.

Is this a limitation of the nVidia drivers when using the Wayland protocol?

Just curious.

Thanks!
