G-SYNC 101: Hidden Benefits of High Refresh Rate G-SYNC


Bonus Points

Often overlooked is G-SYNC’s ability to adjust the refresh rate to lower fixed framerates. This can be particularly useful for games hard-locked to 60 FPS, and has potential in emulators to replicate unique signals such as the 60.1Hz of NES games, which would otherwise be impossible to reproduce. And due to the scanout speed increase at 100Hz+ refresh rates, an input lag reduction can be had as well…

Blur Buster's G-SYNC 101: Input Lag & Optimal Settings

The results show a considerable input lag reduction on a 144Hz G-SYNC display @60 FPS vs. a 60Hz G-SYNC display @58 FPS with first on-screen reactions measured (middle screen would show about half this reduction). And while each frame is still rendered in 16.6ms, and delivered in intervals of 60 per second on the higher refresh rate display, they are scanned in at a much faster 6.9ms per.

Hey brother, sorry to bother you again but I’m confused about one thing so in the game I play insurgency sandstorm it does not support freesync or Gsync. So in game I have limited my frames to my monitors, refresh rate, and enabled Vsync so I don’t get screen tearing. If I disable Vsync it’s unbearable. If in a newer game like modern warfare 2 would I want Vsync disabled? Also, if there’s anything you can tell me about the set up for insurgency, please feel free to let me know.

is this normal? i have 60 stable fps on my 165hz Gsync monitor but the refresh rate keeps changing and is not stable, it keeps changing constantly to 50-80Hz happens to all of my games, and when a game has like 80 fps it keeps changing to 60-100Hz

I have a XL2546 so it is not G sync compatible. Should I still utilize 236 fps while using DYAC + nvidia V sync? Or are these settings G sync specific?

Hey brother, my buddy, just picked up an LG ultra gear 165hz monitor with adaptive sync. I’m a little confused with the word adaptive sync. Is it just another word for free sync or G sync? I’m trying to understand if I should enable V sync when using adaptive sync. On my free sync display I enable V sync to eliminate screen tearing.

Hi. Im playing ” crossfire” with monitor 165 hz . I setted up G sync “on” +V sync “on”+ limited fps “162” but in game fps still from 199-200 and lag. I have already changed setting NVCP but that problem has not improved. please give me advice. thanks

Where did you cap fps? In game or in nvidia panel? I personally recommend RTSS for capping frames.
