Fuck you guys that said Gsync is just a meme. Just got my first Gsync monitor and its fucking amazing. I can't go back to a regular monitor ever again.
No screen tearing at all and since I can turn off Vsync, no input lag either. Not to mention with Vsync off, i'm getting 80-100 fps in BF4 and even when fps fluctuates between 80-100, Gsync makes it buttery smooth.
It only cost you an extra $200 on top of the monitor's usual cost.
And locked you into nvidia cards for the rest of the monitor's lifetime.
But adaptive sync is good, so it might be worth it to you.
yes, but basically anyone can make them (they just need to support adaptive sync that is a open standard)
with G-Sync monitors the manufacturer has to buy the Nvidia chip from Nvidia
I really want one, but I would need a new display and new gpu to do that, so sad that the r9 270x dont support that even when it can play most games at 1080p no problem.
Either choise will be costly. I will wait for new die shrink gpu lineup then.
I'm not even an AMD fanboy, I'm fucking done with AMD.. dealing with display corruption on a fucking daily basis
I've had 6 of these cards, they're all fucking worthless
Nobody can actually notice screen tearing on a 144Hz monitor with games running 60fps+ unless they do a side by side comparison. gsync is a huge meme.
For those $200 you paid extra you could have bought a better graphics card that makes your game even smoother.
I'm not usually the one to call shill, but goddamn this feels like a shill thread.

of all the monitors i have ever owned, i cannot recall ever noticing screen tearing. from shittastic lcd's from 2006, to 60hz ips screens, to my now pwm free 144hz display.
for me at last, jewsync / freensync is a meme.
I bought Two 290 Cards used. Paid 185$ per cArd (390x costs 420 here)
Flashed them to 390x
Bought a korean 1440p 27" IPS that overclocks to 120hz, cost me 320$
Frame rate in battlefront is constant 120fps, no need for expensive 1440p IPS with adaptive sync.
And the heat output keeps me. Warm.
