How to Disable Triple Buffering on a PC
Triple buffering is a 3D image rendering technique. ( Images)

Triple buffering is a computer graphics technique used for reducing flicker and improving the quality of an image rendered in 3D applications. Compared to double buffering, triple buffering comes with a significant speed improvement. However, since the improved image quality requires more rendering cycles for the graphics card, triple buffering will slow down the frame rate when running an application. Therefore, in certain situations, disabling it can be beneficial to performance.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy


  1. 1

    Open the control panel of the graphics card. For NVIDIA cards, this is called "NVIDIA Control Panel." For ATI cards, the software is called "Catalyst Control Panel."

  2. 2

    Click the "Manage 3D Settings" tab in the NVIDIA Control Panel. For ATI cards, navigate to the menu labelled "3D Application Settings" located under "Graphics."

  3. 3

    Select the "Triple Buffering" option and set it to "Off." This will disable the option and affect the image rendering when running 3D applications in the future.

  4. 4

    Press "OK" to apply the settings and exit the control panel software for the graphics card.
