But you understand latency has little to nothing to do about your PC right?
Low framerates increase latency, so it does have to do with hardware in some ways.
Where did you hear that?
It's personal experience. I've tried running CS:GO at 20FPS and the lag is unbearable. Locking it at 60 and there's still a ton of lag.
Cs:go is **** in a way that you experience lag from 64tick and **** hitboxes. When your at 20 fps your gonna be lagging from hardware 60fps lag could be from screen tearing or you having a high ping. (Most likely the ping)
my ping is 12ms and I still get lag at 60fps
