Some interesting news from Nvidia regarding G-sync.
They will start supporting AMD freesync following the scheduled driver update on the 15th of January.
There is only a list of 12 compatible monitors at the moment but the Eurogamer article mentions that any monitor can be tested by a user if they have a 10 series or higher card.

Perhaps people could let us know if their monitor supports this when it rolls out next week.

  • G-sync compatible (yes)
  • G-sync compatible (no)

Bah, vited too soon! ignore mine. I have a G Sync monitor, not a Freesync monitor that is now compatable with G Sync…

Not overly concerned about this. Happy with my recent monitor purchase. Probably could have saved some money though but hey, cant keep putting things off waiting for the next best deal as I would never purchase anything.

Ah scrub that! thats the FHD version. Not 2k model. phew.

Yeah saw the news yesterday, I can’t wait to test mine, I’ll let you know if it works. If it does it would be fantastic as I love it so much. Super thin bezels, 4k UHD, freesynch and color calibrated, the main reason I bought it rather than gaming (LG 27UD68-W)

The gsynch monitors are always more expensive, as gsynch used to require an additonal hardware modul, freesynch is mostly software based. That explains the significant price difference between them (and nvidias greed).

For pants!
