Noticable mouse and keyboard input delay on a Vulkan standalone build when VSync is enabled



How to reproduce:
1. Open the user attached project (

    I am seeing this on 2020.3.25f1 on linux 5.13.0-30-lowlatency with nvidia-dkms 510.47.03-0ubuntu0.21.10.1
    The lag is 1-2 seconds (!)

    Wish I had seen this before, spent hours trying to figure out why I had input lag in my build. Luckily I remembered I had switched to Vulkan the day before and decided to changed it just in case...
