comment Causes of screen tearing and vsync
That's more or less correct. The video card sends the static picture in full, uncompressed, over and over. See the Wikipedia article on DVI for details. TFTs do act as a "memory" for each pixel, and a display can use memory for other purposes (e.g. motion interpolation) but the image is nonetheless updated with every refresh, static or no.
