These are enthusiasts who aren't afraid of tweaking .ini files, I postulate, if they're willing to go down the rabbit hole of statistical frame time analysis.
No argument with any of that but don't see how it relates to whether you report frame latency-based measurements or FPS. I'm saying that those gamers who 'want 90' (and I personally always aim for 100/10ms with my stuff
) would be just as better served by saying they want 99% of the frames faster than 11ms or similar. This is mostly orthogonal to vsync.
