Turning off vsync in game didn't work in a test I just did with vblank_mode=2 -
but I can't remember what the default is - you should be able to see if you are
tearing or not.  

I only have the demo and different hardware to you (4890), but the fps counter
on doom 3 has always been all over the place for me with vsync disabled. I
think it's just the way the counter + game works.

The game by default will cap at around 60fps and like etqw I suspect if it
knows it can't render a frame in the next refresh it won't try whether vsync is
enabled or not.

You can turn this off in console with
