Default Downside of changing "Max frames to render ahead"/"Prerender Limit" to 1/0?

Are there any downsides to this setting? I can't really seem to find any
concrete information on just what this setting does. And most of that
seems to indicate the opposite, that it's meant to improve FPS by setting
it higher, because the card will render ahead on its downtime.


What you read is correct. Setting the prerender limit higher normally

should
improve performance, at the expense of possible mouse lag. Could be a

driver
bug.

Do you have VSync enabled? Toggle it and see if the situation becomes
reversed.

a possible downside of this setting is that setting it lower could result in
"tearing". it's a problem in FPS games but not so bad for slow moving RPGs.
