    So you can't use an amd gpu alone on gsync monitor without screentearing and at say 144hz?

    Too bad a 2400G would've bottlenecked my 1070 10-20FPS in most games. Let alone a future upgrade given how I'm hard eyeballing those 38" ultrawides....

    Haha I’m watching this again as I’m looking to get a new monitor. On January 15, 2019 release day of new drivers allowing free sync on my 1070. 3 months after the release of this video. I think that we soon shall see videos showing how good or bad it is. Then videos about how nvidia is sandbagging performance of freesync in driver. And throughout Linus recommends “not recommend unsigned drivers”

    this is the solution for 49" (32:9) monitors...for a long time to come. There are no G-sync 32:9 monitors on the horizon that i know of.
    ...and if you want to run Samsung's upcoming 32:9 1440p 144hz 49" monitor, a Vega 64 isn't going to cut it.

    So WHEN will we be able to use intel cpu and nvidia gpu with freesync? Isn't the intel 9000 series already using an APU? I was going to go AMD for next cpu, but getting a samsung QLED with freesync soon, so this could be a game changer!!!
    Thanks to all those who reply

    I don't like this custom sync technology everyone pushes into the display. It reminds me of HDDVD vs Bluray back in the day. Two huge companies forcing two different standard and customers are told to pick and gamble. They're expensive and there's no guarantee that future products will support it, AMD or nvidia could come up with X-Sync 2.0 and may not be compatible with your current display. That's just a waste of another perfectly functional display.

    Hey fuk G-Sync and freeSync. Just use your average picture-anti-tearing technology from your DisplayPort Connected Monitor :0 in any case good enough. If DisplayPort anti tearing will advance even further in the near future than G-Sync and freeSync will go to hell :0 But yess ofcourse there are larg format DisplayPort Screens. i have seen some 50 zoll PC screens allrdy ;D no tearing UHD resolution in nice 3ms reaction time and at least 60hz. im sure they are working towards 144hz for the future

  • Tommy Geary

    Sad story incoming: I have had a 1080ti for over a year now, running a Freesync monitor. I had an all AMD rig when I bought the freesync monitor, and at this point it doesn't make financial sense to buy the equivalent G-Sync monitor (because the equivalent is $600 on sale, or $700 normally). I absolutely loved freesync when i was using it, it made everything seem so smooth even at lower framerates. 1080ti though is worth it for the more graphically demanding games at 1440p, i just wish Nvidia would pull their heads out of their asses and let me use freesync.

    so, I'm using Ryzen 5 2600X (no APU) and a GTX 980 4GB with a Freesync monitor. it's mean I should change my CPU for using freesync on monitor?

      @Joseph Yi yeah it would be sucks. But is it worth to downgrade my CPU to achieve Freesync performance?

    • Joseph Yi
      Joseph Yi 9 months ago +1

      It means you would have to downgrade from your 2600 to like a 2400g... Which sucks

    If G-sync wasn't so damn expensive........I've been shopping around for a monitor and see TONS of freesync models. The G-sync monitors were always rare and always way more expensive when compared to a similar freesync monitor.
