120hz monitor vsync locks at 60 fps

BUMP - come on Blizzard, at least acknowledge this problem!

I'll throw my hat in too. I'd like to be able to play at 120 vsync as well.

Sorry guys but development time constraints just weren't long enough to add 120hz support, that would have required at least another year.

I have the same problem.

I bought a 120Hz Monitor mainly for D3 and now it bugs around.
The other Problem ist, that even when i turn on vsync in game and play at 60Hz it is more laggy than other games at 60Hz.

When i turn off vsync the game goes totally crazy.
It looks like the game changes fps every frame between 60 and 100+ and jitters like hell.

And thats without SLI/Crossfire. I run a HD6870, C2D E8400, 4GB RAM.
Edit: Monitor is a Benq XL2420T over DualLink-DVI.

what exactly do you think "bumping" will accomplish...the people who monitor these thread don't see them in the same order...every post is read, and now they have to read your "bumps"

yep, vsync is vsync.
vsync is not "lock framerate to 60 fps regardless of monitors capabilities"

i would really appreciate proper vsync , or proper framelocking.
if i for instance lock the framerate to 120, it stays at around 114.
if i lock it at around 125, it sits around 119.3.

both these issues ( vsync and accurate framelock ) should be addressed.

an alternative for radeon users is to use a third party program called radeonpro.

ive forced vsync there @ 120 fps, and shut the ingame vsync off. now i'm pretty locked to 120.

Its pretty weird what's happening here, with vsync enabled, everything says enabled (in my case) it should cap at 85fps, but caps at 60fps.

These are my settings:
VSync On in Diablo III Settings
Max Foreground FPS is off
DisplayModeRefreshRate "85" (from D3Prefs.txt inside "My Docs/Diablo III")
Monitor OSD says its running on 1600x1200 @ 85Hz
Using Nvidia Drivers 301.42
Have a GTX 580 SLI setup.

So its pretty weird that I see no tearing while the display is at 85Hz, but have 60fps.

Here's what I've tried:
Force VSync On for Diablo III in Nvidia Drivers (also tried Adaptive VSync, still caps at 60fps)
Fullscreen and Fullscreen Windowed

Bumping too : wouldn't cost much to patch VSync so that it detects the monitor's frequency.
Right now, dealing with it by putting a 140 max FPS foreground (~120 actual FPS).

120hz works inall the other games I play, even games from small indie teams. Certainly a massive dev team like Bliz can make it work.

Another 120hz'er here. And yep, D3 does not support non-60hz refresh rates as well is it should. Would love to properly see this running at 120fps in 120hz.

The difference between 60 and 120 is truly day and night, and once you do so much as drag a window across your screen at 120hz you will never want to go 60hz again.

make sure windows monitor refresh rate is set to 120hz
if it is 60, then vsync is working properly

Right-click the windows desktop, and then click Personalize.
Click Display.
Click Change display settings.
Click Advanced settings.
Click the Monitor tab and change Screen refresh rate to 120 Hertz.
Click Ok.

With 60hz and V-sync on, FPS are fixed at 60 max. No matter what you do.
