How to enable VSync in Atomic Heart

Tear apart your enemies, not your screen.

There are some staple options to apply when booting up a game for the first time. These are typically things like disabling motion blur and enabling VSync. However, alternative history shooter, Atomic Heart, is a bit goofy when it comes to the latter option. Here's how to navigate the confusing options which are certainly more baffling than jumping.

Does Atomic Heart support VSync?

In a rather puzzling turn of events, Atomic Heart requires players to turn on the DLSS Frame Generation option in the Quality settings tab to then be able to enable VSync. This is curious because DLSS (Deep Learning Super Sampling) is an NVIDIA feature exclusive to RTX cards and can still be turned on in Atomic Heart if a player is running a non-NVIDIA card.

VSync isn't an option that should ever be hidden behind another one, but stranger things have happened with game development. For all we know, this was the one bandage solution that keeps the entire game from crashing. As for what it does, VSync (Vertical Sync) is an option that tries to line up what your monitor displays with what your GPU renders. If VSync is off and the monitor and GPU are out of sync, this can result in nasty screen tearing or stuttering.
