+ Might finally put the "V-sync on or off" debate to rest by letting monitors synchronize with the video card instead of trying to do it vice-versa eliminating both the tearing that having it off and the input lag that having it on causes.

- It'll require a monitor with their new chip built into it to function.

Nvidia Gsync ftw! I hope AMD gets the same treatment and its not exclusive either way.


But at what price? "Top gaming monitors" doesn't bode well for anyone's wallet.

G-Sync Module will be integrated into the top gaming monitors around the world


I'm thinking of the future. New tech is always expensive. This is the sort of technology that will change the way monitors work in the future. It makes sense that the GPU would determine the scans rather than having them asynchronously updating.

I'm worried Nvidia is going to make it exclusive but I'm hopeful that both sides get involved in this technology. Now framerates can seem a lot smoother than they ever did. Lag, stutter, and tearing gone regardless of framerate.

Neat, so what happens on laptops with dual GPU's?

i got all excited and then realised

how are they going to time strobed backlights to a variable refresh interval without variable brightness

constant backlights leave us with the persistence of vision issue

Well if the laptop has the gsync chip it would work as expected.

Not sure how they do it but that was addressed a bit during the earlier talk. Supposedly it was a larger hurdle and the chip helps to compensate for color and backlight issues that come from a variable refresh.

Interesting. I'm glad they're thinking about it :)

But the intel chip probably wouldn't support it.

Gsync is only activated in 3d mode so it would only be using the dedicated chip anyways.
