+ - Nvidia G-Sync Technology Preview: Quite Literally A Game Changer->

Submitted by brittlendor
brittlendor (2623305) writes "If you’re a PC gamer, you're forever faced with this dilemma: Disable V-sync and live with tearing, or turn it on and tolerate annoying stutter? Nvidia promises to make that question obsolete with a variable refresh rate technology it calls "G-Sync". First announced two months ago, the company finally revealed details on Wednesday. In a nutshell, G-Sync allows your monitor and graphics card to run at the same refresh rate, therefore negating both tearing and stuttering. Nvidia aims to integrate G-Sync boards into PC monitors starting in Q1 2014.

Of course, in order to take advantage of G-Sync, you’ll not only need a new monitor that features the technology, but also an Nvidia graphics card, specifically the GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost and up. Asus is set to ship a 144Hz 1080p model early next year, and Nvidia is already prepared to take G-Sync to 4K. Unfortunately, it doesn’t appear likely that G-Sync will become an industry standard. Nevertheless, the V-sync conundrum has haunted PC gamers for over a decade, so in the ongoing Nvidia versus AMD graphics battle, G-Sync could prove to be a real game changer."
