PC gamers are saying nvidia is ruining vsync in games like ac4 and cod ghosts...

I'm reading alot of posts that nvidia is purposely telling game developers to make bugs with vsync on so gamers can buy g sync monitors when it's released.

Is this true?

Nvidia has done pretty crappy things in the past, wouldn't be any great surprise if they were doing something like that

I doubt it. They certainly don't want to lose the PC audience to AMD.

even if they were telling devs to do such a thing, from the developer's perspective that is suicide.

I tested both games tho..

With vsync on in cod ghost the performance is worst and cut scenes loading music cuts in and out.

Assassins creed 4 the framerate is erratic but with vsync off its 60 fps always.

But their subjects blindly follow them and even shell out $150-300 more per performance tier for a card. They risk nothing.

This has always baffled me. There are times when Nvidia is better, but most of the time they are not, or are flat out worse, yet you still see hordes of Nvidia fanboys defending them. I was a pretty big AMD CPU fanboy back when they were actually good bang for your buck, but when I built my comp back in April I went with Intel because it would be stupid to pay nearly as much for something that isn't even close performance wise

I've actually seen quite the opposite. The majority of people buying nVidia cards seem to be doing so because they either didn't have a good experience with AMD at some point, want something nVidia offers, or because nVidia had a better value at the time. And yet, for some reason, every AMD fan seems to think that AMD is always the better price-performance brand, while downplaying every AMD problem and blowing up every nVidia problem.

That said, it wouldn't surprise me all that much if true, but console ports having broken Vsync isn't anything new at all, and considering how broken Ghosts is in general, I'm not inclined to think there's anything out of the ordinary there. Ubisoft doesn't exactly have the best history of making games with good timing either. If nVidia is involved, they picked their targets wisely, because these two games having broken vsync wouldn't be surprising either way.
