Latest patch for Quantum Break on Windows 10 lets you disable V-Sync

The team at Remedy has released a third update for Quantum Break on Windows 10. This latest release adds a number of changes, but the highlight is support for disabling V-Sync. This will let you take full advantage of G-Sync or FreeSync, should your graphics card and connected monitor(s) support either technology.

As well as the above V-Sync toggle, Remedy also implemented the following, according to the official log of changes:

  • Fixed an issue with game controllers not working correctly on some configurations
  • General fixes
  • In response to requests from fans, we have removed SSE4.2, SSE4.1, SSSE3 limitation, which will enable "Quantum Break" on Windows 10 to run on unsupported, below minimum spec hardware

As for the last point, we recommend (alongside Remedy) that you at least make sure your PC meets the bare minimum specifications before purchasing the title. That said, if you're just below the entry point but have read reports you should be absolutely fine on your setup, be sure to give it a try and let us know how you get on in the comments. Proceed at your own peril, though.

  • I thought that was already fixed
  • The Vsync issue required an update for Windows 10 to be released.
  • UWP was updated last month, but the game hadn't been updated yet. Från min Lumia 1520
  • Steady. Adding cutting edge features like this takes time.
  • Too little, too late.
  • Yea. People bought the game, whine about it, and left the game. It already set a bad example
  • Oh really? You already bought Quantum Break from a different PC store? Oh, right, you can't. Ergo, it's neither too little nor too late.
  • Too little to salvage this failed title. Outsold by last-gen ports of 3 year old games, ha ha ha. Nothing's gonna save this flop.
  • It's a great game and the best-selling new IP by Microsoft this generation. That's the opposite of "failed". By the way, Einstein, it's "3-year-old games", not "3 year old games" [sic]. Compund adjectives require hyphens. If you're going to troll, at least step up your game.
  • Oh yeah, Mr. "compund adjectives"? Better double-check that spelling if you're giving grammar advice. By the way, you still get a thumbs up for your comment for clarifying that this game has not failed.
  • "the best-selling new IP by Microsoft this generation" Even you yourself pointed out how meaningless this statement from MS was when it was reported. "So, I'm not exactly sure what they're bragging about here, unless I'm overlooking some title." http://www.windowscentral.com/quantum-break-microsofts-biggest-selling-new-ip-generation
  • Hmm, a best selling W10 store app is not exactly 'best selling' in the traditional sense though, is it.
