    Hmm, let's not believe that.

    The gsync certification is just a smoke screen from nvidia to avoid admitting that they are unable to implement adaptive sync properly.

    I recently purchased (and indeed am still paying off) an expensive 144Hz gaming monitor that supports FreeSync, which I had bought full well knowing that there was a G-Sync version that would work better with my GTX 1060, but that version costs almost twice as much and is otherwise identical. This feature hasn't trickled back to the Linux driver but assuming it does I really hope it enables G-Sync for my monitor because I would love to take advantage of that feature, especially since my 1060 can comfortably play games above 60 FPS at 1440p, but often can't quite reach 144 FPS.

  • lexzbuddy

    I received a 27 inch viewsonic monitor for xmas. My old monitor was dying so it was a heartfelt thanks when I received it. Now, it's a cheap one. Not fancy sync etc but I see no value added with this adaptive stuff. I just limit max frame rate to that of the screen and I have no tearing or input lag or anything bad. So, not sure if there is really any value in any of this stuff for me that I can see. Interesting to hear about but nothing I will ever buy as a feature I see adding value.

  • TILR

    So I got a monitor that works with the freesync (I think, horrible at names sorry) to use for my consoles since one xbox one s can use that and it was cheaper than a lower resolution TV at the same size for some reason. My question is when this driver update comes out, does that mean my PC with my GTX 1060 will be able to take advantage of the techonlogy built into both my gsync monitor for my desktop experience and my second one that has the other version? It does have a DP and HDMI so idk. Somewhat new to this tech.

    When does this come out

  • Иван Григоров

    So...that is good but i have another big question... we know that all G-Sync monitors are 3D Vision compatible (almost), but i personally didn't find anywhere if the G-Sync compatible monitors are also 3D Vision compatible (different tehcnology, different bla bla ). Can someone clear out that for me ? Someone tested that ? Thanks.

  • MadOss
    MadOss 4 months ago

    I hate when he sais you still need a geforce card. First thing, that adaptive sync "freesync" is made by amd, and works on amd cards, so why say that. Also, u will need a 10series minimum, which he didnt mention?

  • Benjamin Ruege
    Benjamin Ruege 4 months ago

    I do like this. It allows variable refresh to before accessible while still allowing for those who can afford it to get the most premium experience, however much better it is. That's interesting though because I did end up with an Rx 480 because I found a freesync monitor for way less than anything gsync.

    It's a play against AMD to push FreeSync branding out of the monitor market.

    JETWTF 4 months ago

    Intel: Were going to support Freesync on our upcoming GPU's.
    That's why Nvidia decided to also support it. G-Sync only monitors that come with a premium price tag without better quality for the end user is a liability when the competition supports the lower cost to consumer alternative.

  • Luredreier
    Luredreier 4 months ago

    Nah, that "was majority" they're talking about mostly doesn't involve real issues at all.
    It's enough that a panel don't have freesync enabled by default to fail their tests even if that monitors freesync implementation would otherwise be perfect according to Nvidias own standards...
    Alright, I'll give you the first two.
    However the last one is (unless you know something I don't) essentially the same as Low Framerate Compensation on AMDs side, over half of the freesync monitors on the market got LFC support.
    And quite frankly it's not like freesync monitors don't beat the G-sync ones as well in some areas.
    High end freesync monitors these days actually have lower latency then the best G-sync monitors on the market and they often have better connectivity as well and several extra minor features.
    Basically the freesync approach with a open standard available to multiple monitor scaler companies exposes the companies in question to higher competition on the market and therefore also higher innovation and drive towards improvements.
    Don't get me wrong, Nvidia frequently improve their own module too essentially catching up with the freesync monitors for a short while each time they do.
    But they're only on their third iteration of the G-sync monitor by now while a *ton* of new freesync copatible scalers have been released in the same time since the launch of the first adaptive sync support from either company.
    And it shows.
    Nvidias approach is more conductive towards advantages that relies on calibration between multiple components.
    But it really isn't a case of one approach being better or more premium then the other, it's two competing standards with advantages and draw backs on either side.

    If Nvidia really wanted to make it a "really better day for gamers" they wouldn't be pricing their 60 series cards at 350 bucks(400+$ for partner cards that are stripped to the bone like EVGA's model) and 1500+$ for a 2080ti that has 1 whole game that is RTX ready!!!!!!!!!

    I have lg22mp68vq , it doesnt have a display port but a HDMI and a dvi port but I have a gtx1060 which actually has display port ,so will a display port to HDMI port work to enable gsync as using HDMI to HDMI I can't see the option for enabling gsync even after updating the driver , as HDMI doesn't work for gsync .

    This in NVIDIA's way of saying they see AMD as a strong competitor now. AMD showed they're capable of making products that are similar to their line up. It's threatening their business model. Curious to see what we will get out of both of them and what our benefits will be.

    Cool, for those of us who prefer to game on 85 inch HDR TVs we just need to get the manufacturers to put DisplayPort in instead of expecting us to use HDMI. Especially considering GPU manufacturers are still using the outdated version of HDMI.

    apparently my lg 27ud68 isn't supported but it does seem to enable now before i use to just get blackscreen when i turn freesync on though it doesn't get the setup g sync in control panel
    Update* updated the drivers it does allow me to turn on g-sync it works but i seem to have less of a range before the tearing starts supposed to have 40-60HZ Freesync but with the 1080gtx i have 45 - 60HZ range before it starts to tear
