"Having G-Sync enabled on a 27in, 2,560x1,440-resolution monitor makes a lot of sense for gamers who have a GeForce GTX 770/780-class of video card. These GPUs are able to mete out 40-60FPS in visually demanding titles and thus bring the visually smooth advantages of G-Sync very much into their wheelhouse. Once you see G-Sync in action and compare it against a traditional monitor there really is no going back."Full article >>
We wish there was an easy way to visually convey how G-Sync affects on-screen animation, but there isn't. We don't have a means to capture DisplayPort feeds and shooting video of the screen and hosting it on-line doesn't capture the full effect either. In lieu of an easy visual method to show how effective G-SYNC is, you'll just have to take our word for it. G-Sync is great.Full article >>
Playing through each of the games brought to light the kind of smoothness that only comes with this technology. It does not get rid of the game glitches that are part and parcel to the game in question, but does indeed offer improved visuals. You get the best of both worlds: no input lag and no screen tearing that you see when the frame rates outstrip the standard 60 and even 120Hz refresh rates of current monitor technology. As far as any performance hit, there really is no performance hit to speak of when enabling G-Sync technology.
By spending several hours in front of the ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q, what I did discover was that I found myself playing through the games much longer than I had before just because of how smooth the gameplay was.Full article >>
But an interesting thing happened when enabling G-Sync. Not only did the tearing go away, but the constant stuttering was almost completely gone! This is an effect that I honestly did not expect to see, but it appears that something in the driver (or game pipeline) is adjusted or tweaked with G-Sync in play. The result is another incredibly smooth, fluid, and visually perfect game experience.Full article >>
