Turn v-sync off.

Its a fairly useless feature that absolutely devours CPU power

v-sync is absolutely useless on a LCD monitor as there is no vertical scanning. It was a technology developed to combat the 'flicker' effect of old CRT monitors that would appear to be paging. Any CRT monitor running less than about 60hz will be victim to this.
