Do they truly make a difference?


Go to the nvidia forums and read the posts of the problems with gsync.

The truth is - the idea of gsync came when vsync caused input lag.

I use vsync on every game , and I don't notice any lag at all. And all I have is a 1060.


Why post ignorant s*** when you have no idea what you're talking about?

I have no problems with my GSYNC panel and no VSYNC adds input lag end of story GSYNC has and will always be relavent and much better than VSYNC. You must have never used GSYNC before and are talking out your ass, please be quiet peasant.

It's f***ing bulls***. Is this divide between video cards not bad enough? On what f***ing planet should we need to choose a monitor based on the video card brand? f*** that noise. It's bad enough games get optimized to work better with one card than the other. f*** this s***.

Freesync is awesome. No more s*** input latency.
God gave man a brain and a ****. Too bad he didn't give us enough blood to use them both @ the same time....

At 144hz with 1ms response time I don't notice input lag and haven't noticed any screen tearing.

Not sure what the need for gsync/freesync is right now.

It is a game changer. If you are sensitive to frame stutter and screen tearing this is your golden ticket to awesomeness.

Which I am.

If your GPU can keep the game going at 144hz, especially if the game has an option to cap the frame rate, you're usually just fine without gsync. Where it really shines is when you play a game where frame rate dips below your monitor's max. The ability to always keep the monitor's refresh rate and the game's frame rate at exactly the same speed without having to halve the FPS is awesome.

If your GPU -can- keep things going at 144hz, gsync monitors in that range have the ULMB feature, which makes the picture a lot clearer during motion at high frame rate.

The only time gsync monitors are pointless (imo) is if your GPU keeps up with the monitor and ULMB is not available (usually gsync monitors that are <144hz...which unfortunately includes mine. Blah.)

One big issue though is that they're counterintuitive to use, and what you read online is often incorrect because they changed how things worked since gsync's original release. A lot of the old info is still around. Enable gsync, cap framerate to 1-3 frames below your monitor's max if game allows, DISABLE VSYNC IN THE GAME, enable vsync in the nvidia control panel. That will make sure things work properly in all cases (low frame rate, high framerate, or exactly capped frame rate) without weird studders and other issues, optimizing for what gsync does best.

Gsync isn't just for input lag and screen tearing (which you really can't notice at 144hz anyway) it's also for frame stutter jitter whatever you want to call it. It's very noticeable when gsync is off. If your frame rate jumps all over the place like when I play pubg and battlefield1 it smooths it out. When gsync is off my eyes bleed lol.

yeah, the stutter reduction is huge. Wildstar is one game in particular that really benefits from it, at least on windows 7 since apparently a render feature in 10 smooths it out a lot.

I also haven't experienced 144hz, but at 100hz (the cap of my ultrawide monitor) tearing is still plainly obvious when I have it off.
Every time I try to go where I really wanna be it's already where I am, 'cuz I'm already there

I can see tearing without gsync at 144hz but only if my mind isn't consumed by something (I won't notice it in team fortress but I'll notice it in skyrim etc)
