[SOLVED] VSync stuck at 75 fps instead of 144 fps


I have a primary 144 hz monitor I use for gaming and a second one that has 75 hz.
Every time I want to use VSync in any game, my fps get stuck at 75 fps instead of 144 fps.
This problem does not occur on Windows 10 while using VSync where the fps remain capped at 144 fps.

Updating graphics drivers did not resolve the problem.
I use KDE Plasma, zen kernel and I'm on Garuda Linux Dragonized.

Please help

Send garuda-inxi please

Also, give a look at this thread.
This might be a limitation.
There are some workarounds that you could try, anyway.


Hallelujah, we don't like terminal output as images.
Neither from new nor "old" users of the forum.

Look at them, what I'm about to change your post.

I have found a solution for this problem!

Put ~/.config/kwinrc in Konsole
Add MaxFPS=144 to the [Compositing] section.
Restart your computer


Thank you filo!

I go to the trouble of formatting it and you can't think of anything better than deleting it?

Why did you delete it?
Because it was not a garuda-inxi?

inxi -Faz?
