Cyberpunk 2077 G-Sync Issue and how to fix it

PC players with G-sync supported monitors can’t seem to run the game with G-sync enabled. If you are one of those, then there’s nothing wrong with your monitor, but Cyberpunk 2077 itself. This is especially annoying because G-sync allows for smoother frametimes, and general performance.

To fix this, you can follow the steps below.

  • Launch Cyberpunk 2077
  • First off, disable V-sync, and set the display mode to Fullscreen in-game
  • After this, close Cyberpunk 2077
  • Now, head over to the following location through Windows Run. You can access that by either pressing Windows Key + R, or by searching for Run in Windows Search. Enter the following location
%LOCALAPPDATA%\CD Projekt Red\Cyberpunk 2077\cache\

Windows Run

  • Launch the game again
