    A question about FPS on 4K TVs

    So, my Samsung 4K TV has a refresh rate at 4K of 30 and a refresh rate of 60 at 1080p. I had thought that this meant an FPS cap when playing at those resolutions. When I played Fallout 4 and Deadspace 3 and many other games on a Strix 960 OC GeForce Experience showed 30 FPS on screen at 4K and 60 FPS at 1080p which seemed to confirm that notion.

    Now that I have switched over to a Strix 1080TiOC some games are showing much higher FPS at 4K. Sniper Elite 4 shows 560 FPS (!) during the menus and cut scenes. Alien: Isolation shows 360 FPS during menus and cut scenes. Much lower in-game FPS but still higher than 30. Sniper Elite 4 is over 100, for example and Resident Evil 5 is 60. Yet, other games (Resident Evil 7) still only show 30 FPS at 4K on this TV. Why is that? I didn't think it was possible to exceed 30 FPS in 4K on this TV.

    Please clear this up for me.

    if you set v-sync on, you will get the refresh rate of your tv.
    if v-sync is off your fps counter will show what fps the gpu will give out, but tv will only show as menny fps it is rated for, aka 4K is 30fps? and 1080P is 60fps.
