Why does the editor renders at 120fps?

I recently turned on the editor statistics and noticed that it renders the viewport at 120fps. Is there a reason for this number? I would expect it to synchronize with the screen and keep it at 60fps.

Does anyone know if this is just to keep the editor smoother?

It’s just the default. I you want it to render at 60, just use the console command:

t.maxfps 60

( hit the ` key to open the console ).

Thanks, 120 is fine for me. I was just wondering if the choice was always 2x the refresh rate and if it had some technical reason for it =).

if it had some technical reason for it

To keep you on your toes when using frame delta time ¯_(ツ)_/¯

I would say this is fair enough!
