Refresh rate changes when launching Games

As i wrote in the title, the refresh rate of my Monitor seems to change when playing games. I run a 165hz monitor as my main display and a 75hz as a secondary. When i lauch a game, for example apex legends, my display seems to only run at the 75hz of my second monitor. I tested this by enabling v-sync and it locks at 75fps instead of 165. As soon as i unplug the second display though, it runs at 165fps. Im still relatively new to linux so i have no clue what could be the cause of this.

Any help is appreciated :slight_smile:

If you’re on x11, try swapping to wayland. Wayland is able to run the monitors at their respective refresh rate.

I already tried that but it didnt work. I ended up seeing a reddit post saying i should try pressing alt+shift+f12 and that totally works. It just breaks some desktop effects till i reboot. Thanks for ur help tho :slight_smile:
