So, in my on-going search and testing for the smoothest possible experience of playing 60 fps content in 160 hz display refresh rate, i was wondering if Retroarch team could implement an updated Sync to content, (or a separate option), that involves a few tricks to mitigate the judder which is similar to playing 24 fps content on 60 hz screen (like some kind of motion interpolation, pull down, something else…). Obviously it can not be judder free, just smoother.
There’s something slightly different from Sync to Exact content that the mame core does, when Throttling is enabled in Core Options, which smooths out the video amazingly well, while keeping it at its original framerate. If a similar logic would be possible to be added to Retroarch’s Sync to Exact content, it would be absolutely fantastic for all other cores (FBNeo, Flycast, etc) in the context of playing on fast display.
Small related question: I noticed that changing the audio Output Rate to different values from 48000 hz, has a visible impact on the smoothness of the video. 48000 hz is the smoothest, while other values cause a lot of stutter. Can i improve the image further from this area?
Note: while it seems the logical choice, setting the screen to 120 hz does not produce the expected results. 160 hz is much smoother overall.
Thanks so much good people!
