So I was wondering how is that that on my computer (that is quite decent) a game runs (in theory) with 210 FPS while on my laptop it runs with 65, yet the speed of the game (movements in the game, reaction times etc) is the same. Let's take an example: I am running a racing game. The car moves with 30m/s in each case. How is it that with 210 and 65 FPS the car goes with the same speed on both computer? How can one control that? I hope this question makes sense. Sorry if the question is noobish with no actual technical terms. [Edited by - roidgamer on March 20, 2010 5:55:10 AM]
