      What has just occurred to me is that the benefit for me as I already have a G-sync monitor is that it will be compatible with those TV's that are being released this year that included Free-sync enabling. It may only be Samsung that included Free-sync in their tv's but I can't remember as I didn't pay it much mind given I use NVIDIA.

      what gsync compatible means, is they can take the best of the best of free sync monitors, slap a gsync compatible label on it, and get some extra cash from monitor makers to get a gsync compatible label put on their monitors. in other words, nvidia is doing another power grab and forcing their will on monitor makers.
      top of the line freesync monitors are already within the extreme margins of gsync. yet...i kinda doubt reviewers will call them out on their bs. some of the issues of freesync monitor are low hz range monitors which are cheap crap. so...in top of the line freesync monitors, there is no issues, hence why nvidia wants to put a gsync label on it, so they can do yet another power grab and claim their "tech and standards are better than amd" which simply isn't the case. the top of the line freesync monitors already are quality controlled by the manufacturers themselves. simply put, ngreedia, wants to try to take even freesync from amd and they are going to get away with it cause no one is going to call them out for it.

    if you had a gsync monitor would u upgrade to a better monitor without gsync for superior resolution / refresh rate?, or would the lack of a gsync module make it a downgrade

    most of the games I play didn't really go below 60fps on a gtx 1070, so although I have gsync I never used it much before, but I just fully maxed out skyrims graphics
    and now getting about 45 fps at 1440p, sub 30 at 4K DSR, GSYNC is VERY good at around 40 to 50 fps !

    So if your FreeSync monitor has a refresh range of 48-144Hz such as a XG27VQ or a XG32VQ , This would put you to a ratio of 3. Would being at a ratio of 3 be better overall, Or is 2.5 the target?

  • JrBoi

    I have the XFA240 and I just bought a KG271U and Freesync works flawlessly on there and it isnt labeled as "Compatible". Works in every game. I now set a limit on all my games for 141 so I can use the Syncing capability. I feel like out of the 400 they tested. My new monitor wasnt in there. They should update again and all all the monitors that people report working perfect, like myself, as G-Sync Compatible". My VRR is 40 - 144Hz. Rare when i actually dip down to 40 FPS on a 1070 at 1440p

    2:00 I think that's my screen on the left, 34" LG 34UC79G-B. and I do get the random occasional what seems to be a single black frame. but that doesn't seam to happen until my EVGA SC 1070 gets up to 85c in Destiny 2 frames capped at 100fps. I also capped my refresh rate at 100hz in windows/nvidia control panel, since most of my games don't realistically play at a constant 144fps.

    LG 34UC79G, no go. Flickering all over. Shame...i think nvidia will not support all FS monitors because of the stupid GSYNC. The tech is there, but i think they will not fully develop it for all FS displays...


    Question. I have a Samsung u28d590d 60hz 4k freesync monitor,it looks amazing but being I have a1080 ti ftw3 I upgraded to an alienware 240hz 1080p gsync display. I miss the 4k and really notice the lower resolution. Being that now possibly I could use gsync on the 4k display... Would you? Could you go from 240hz to 60hz for the resolution upgrade if both had gsync? Thanks cause I was about to sell the 4k monitor for $200 not sure if I should now


      +Martin Frantzen i am going to hook up my 4k and see if gsync works on it now.. if so at the very least I could sell it much easier.. cause I would like to sell both of mine and get 1440/144 as well.. perfect balance.. i paid a premium just to get gsync and honestly i cant tell a difference lol

    • Martin Frantzen
      Martin Frantzen Месяц назад +1

      I personally prefer a higher resolution over higher frames in most of my games. I have a 4k screen and absolutely cannot go back to 1080 no matter the frame rate, it's just too jarring after using a higher resolution. I've regretted my upgrade to 4k60 ever since testing 1440/144, that seems to be the sweet spot as the difference between 1440 and 4k is practically unnoticeable in the games I play (arena shooters, FPS and city builders (the last one may be the exception)

    Those "non/validated" displays have DEFINITELY been tampered with, or Nvidia intentionally wanted RMA'd displays, either way it's incredibly misleading.
    9/10 FreeSync problems lay in the drivers of the GPU, so I guess that's also an option (since I doubt nvidia used Radeon cards).
    Worst thing you're gonna see on a FreeSync monitor is ghosting, which to be fair is a common thing on the cheaper models (below 350€), but if you're on a budget would you rather NOT have ASync than have a slightly ghosted ASync?...

    This might sound like a pretty silly question so apologies in advance - Is this whole concept the same as saying Nvidia have developed software to enable their GPUs to work with AMD FreeSync now, and instead of calling it that, they're calling it as AMD FreeSync monitors being G-Sync compatible ?
    I hope I"m making sense. Is another way to look at it just to say that AMD FreeSync being open technology, has enabled Nvidia to make their GPUs compatible with FreeSync ?

    Cool story bro. But... nVidia if you expect me to pay 350+ $ for a mid range card ... You must be friking insane, or maybe you fell and hit your head. So at least for me... what monitor is cool enough for people that fell and hit their heads, is not really relevant . Wont even talk about prices on the high end GPUs , you dont even have a die shrink, just strapped on new shinny memory from third party , oh and the RTX that somewhat simulates natural light, maybe a good enough emulation , but not worth the prince on same process GPU.

    Jensen is just acting like a little baby crying right now... Bitching and saying stupid things. As the CEO of a company like Nvidia he should be ashamed.
    He wants to make us trust that all thousands of customers who have been using Free synch for the last 3/4 years never noticed that their screens are not working... and of course, for those who may have notice the problem none of them reported the problem neither any reviewer on internet (web site, youtubers etc.).
    But thanks God and Jensen, Nvidia managed to find the problem that nobody saw for 4 years, yeah no PC hardware reviewers nor customers managed to see the problem that Nvidia identified in less than 5 minutes (so to speak).
    Sorry Jensen we're so dumb and we're really thank Gods that you and your company are there.
    Thanks again for your great RTX and DLSS things which allowed you to justify to raise the price of your cards by +60%...
    RTX really only work on 1 game et DLSS on another one.. so that's 2 so far... yeah really thank you !
    Thanks you also for all the trust we put on you which reflect the value of your company stock price for the last 4 months. Don't pay attention to the minus 50%.. they're all haters.
    I really do hope that the coming Radeon VII test will make people buy more AMD graphic cards.
    That people will understand that RTX and DLSS are not worth the hundreds of Dollars or Euros you're requesting for the time being. In 2/3 years maybe but right now... no way.
    Buying an Nvidia graphic card means +300$€ minimum compare to their Pascal counterpart and if you want a new monitor, just add another 200/300$€ for the G Synch... so that around +500$€ at best.
    With AMD coming with Radeon VII + Free Synch + 7nm, I'm somehow understand why you're bitching... but don't worry there will be always plenty of people who like to be ripped off and want to have +10 fps even if it cost then +800$.

    Thanks for explaining this. I'm glad nVidia is doing this, as it's good for the consumer (something rare for them). Because nVidia has such a large percentage of the GPU market, I suspect we will start to see more compatible monitors, or at least monitors that would pass if tested by nVidia. FreeSync/AdaptiveSync up to now was a bit niche so it didn't get a lot of love.

    What would be an interesting test is LG 34GK950 (Gsync) vs LG 34GK950F (Freesync). The two monitors use the same panel, and the Gsync version is actually held a bit back due to the use of the version 1 Gsync module to keep costs down. If flickering etc is not present on the Freesync version this could be a good option.

    The big question is why do so many monitors have problems? I mean this is a VESA standard so if it does not work either Nvidia or the monitor vendor has violated the spec.
    If Nvidia has violated the spec why even bother all this testing instead of just fixing it (at least for new products)
    If so many monitor vendors have violated the spec then shame on them because they are charging extra money for advertising their monitor as compatible.
    Or are all the monitors that partially work not even officially suppirting adaptive sync but somehow still work to some extend?

  • Kepe
    Kepe Месяц назад

    Adaptive Sync is the name of the VESA standard that AMD calls FreeSync. FreeSync 2 = VESA Adaptive Sync with more strict requirements. What Nvidia is doing, is enabling Adaptive Sync support for their GPUs.
    Saying that G-Sync is a subset of Adaptive Sync is factually incorrect. Adaptive Sync and G-Sync are different technologies that allow monitors to run at a variable refresh rate.
