The improvement to Batman: Arkham Origins was insane. I kept expecting it to somehow not work, but G-SYNC really did smooth out the vast majority of stuttering I encountered in the game - all without touching a single quality setting.
After spending a few days with G-Sync, I’m just as convinced as I was in Montreal. The technology, albeit a relatively simple manipulation of display timing, is a key ingredient in delivering a substantially better gaming experience.
In pathological cases the impact can be shocking, particularly if you’re coming from a 60Hz panel today (with or without v-sync). The smoothness afforded by G-Sync is just awesome.Full article >>
There are titles like Anno 2070, which is extremely strong hacked with V-sync on or off as you move around - either graphical disruption or stutter begins when the FPS rate under the magical 60 FPS slips. Here G-Sync acts like a downright miracle. In other titles, such as Tomb Raider, the NVIDIA exclusive tech brings tangible benefits.Full article >>
When revolutionary developer John Carmack (iD Software, Oculus VR) saw this technology for the first time he said “Once you play on a G-Sync monitor, you’ll never go back.” NVIDIA reps told me the same thing this week as they placed a prototype G-Sync monitor on my desk. A small 1080p monitor which was dwarfed by my 27” 1440p Monoprice display, and the 31.5” ASUS 4K panel I’m testing. It was all I could do not to let a doubtful chuckle slip from my lips.
Two hours later, after running my own G-Sync demo (on my own terms, with my own selection of games), I adamantly swore off gaming on anything but a G-Sync monitor, regardless of its size or resolution. The differences are that extreme. Once you see it for yourself, you’ll never go back.Full article >>
Once you experienced it'll be hard to go back to a regular screen. The visual gaming experience is a lot better, but realistically gaming the old-fashioned way with VSync on honestly works just fine for me as well. However playing games without input lag, screen tearing and VSYNC pulsing simply is an improvement of the game experience. As such we think G-Sync is the next logical step in the evolution of PC gaming.
I like G-Sync, I really really do like it.Full article >>
After a week of using an ASUS VG248QE equipped with a G-SYNC module, I can honestly say that much of its hype is completely justified.
Typically my gaming is done on a 60Hz IPS monitor so the difference between my current setup and one that’s G-SYNC enabled has been extreme. The benefits were front and center with noticeable decreases in lag and an altogether cleaner sense of onscreen movement. Believe it or not, switching back to my old gaming methods brought about what can be best described as Stockholm Syndrome.Full article >>
We wish there was an easy way to convey how G-SYNC affects on-screen animation, but there isn’t. In lieu of an easy visual method to show how effective G-SYNC is, we’ll just have to write about it. Luckily, G-SYNC can be summed up in one word—impressive.
If you’re the type that gets irked by input lag and can easily pick-up the synchronization related artifacts of your current display setup, G-SYNC will be a jaw-dropper. Tearing is simply gone, on-screen animations look smooth and fluid, and input lag is virtually non-existent.Full article >>
My short time with the NVIDIA G-Sync prototype display has been truly impressive, and getting some play time in with Battlefield 4, Crysis 3, BioShock Infinite and even some good old Battlefield 3 was awesome. Even from someone watching over my shoulder as I played Crysis 3 (a game with which they were greatly familiar) there was an immediate "awe-factor" from the smoothness and feel of "speed" in the movement.Full article >>

You've forever faced this dilemma: disable V-sync and live with image tearing, or turn V-sync on and tolerate the annoying stutter and lag? G-Sync sets out to address that by giving the monitor an ability to scan at a variable refresh. Such innovations are the only way our industry can disruptively move forwardFull article >>
