Screen Tearing In Unreal 5 Editor

Hi there,

I’m new to Unreal Engine, and I’ve noticed that I get screen tearing whenever I move around in the editor, but it doesn’t happen during gameplay.

I’m running a Ryzen 9 5950X CPU, and an RTX 3080, with 64 GB of RAM, so I don’t think it’s a hardware issue. That being said, my BenQ PD2700U monitor has a refresh rate of 60 hz, so perhaps it has something to do with that, but you would think it would be consistent across the board with gaming as well, which it’s not.

I have the same issue when running Unreal 4.27.1.

Any thoughts or suggestions will be most appreciated.


Just putting the answer here because this came up first in search results for “ue5 editor tearing”
