Nvidia G-Sync Technology
Nvidia G-Sync Monitor
Nvidia G-Sync is groundbreaking new display technology that delivers the smoothest and fastest gaming experience ever. G-Sync’s revolutionary performance is achieved by synchronizing display refresh rates to the GPU, eliminating screen tearing and minimizing display stutter and input lag. What is the result?
“Faster equals better” is how you’d normally think about improving a gaming PC. A new CPU, gigabytes of RAM, and a more powerful GPU (not to mention the swift response times of an SSD) all give you some sort of boost in frame rates and image quality, resulting in an arguably better experience. But with its G-Sync technology, Nvidia is giving the PC crowd another option, one that absolutely transforms the way your games look, play, and respond.

Why Do I Need G-Sync?
Traditionally, PC monitors and TVs update at a fixed refresh rate. Typically, this is 60Hz, meaning that the image displayed is updated 60 times a second; some gaming-specific monitors offer even higher refresh rates of 120Hz, or 144Hz. The higher the refresh rate of the monitor, the smoother an image appears in motion. In an ideal world, the frame rate of a game would perfectly match up with the refresh rate of a monitor, resulting in a smooth image free of any artefacts. The trouble is, GPUs aren’t really designed that way, and instead try to render frames as quickly as possible, presenting them to the display when they’re done.
This creates some of the more common issues that tend to affect the visual quality of games.
