What Is The G-Sync Monitors?

You have come to the right place if you are wondering what G-Sync is. In short, Nvidia G-Sync is a type of display technology used in certain PC monitors, laptops and TVs to combat screen tearing, stuttering and vibration, especially during fast-paced games or videos. G-Sync only works when the screen is connected to the system using a compatible Nvidia graphics card (including those of other brands). So, if you still don't have a compatible card, be sure to check out our guide to buying a graphics card, as well as a detailed comparison of AMD and Nvidia GPU features. And if it’s a portable G-Sync experience, check out our Gaming Laptop Buying Guide.

If you are buying a gaming computer monitor,  you can see the term "G-Sync" in the product descriptions and specifications. You probably already know that G-Sync is warmly recommended for serious players, but what exactly is G-Sync? We are here to answer that burning question.
In short, G-Sync is a tool developed by Nvidia to solve image smoothness problems. Without proper time, the images on your screen may "tear" horizontally, as if two parts of a torn photo were glued to the screen. You may also see "stuttering" when your computer crashes below your monitor refresh rate.
When buying a gaming monitor, it is important to compare G-Sync with FreeSync. Both technologies improve monitor performance by matching screen performance to graphics card. And there are clear advantages and disadvantages: G-Sync offers top performance at a higher price, while FreeSync is prone to certain artifacts on the screen such as ghosts.
So, G-Sync versus FreeSync? In the end, it is up to you to decide which one is best for you (with the help of our guide below).
G-Sync allows the monitor refresh rate (Hz) to change dynamically, according to the frame rate (FPS) of your GPU. As a result, removing the entire screen to the maximum refresh rate of the monitor without noticeable delay in the input delay (~ 1 ms).
So if you have a 144Hz game monitor and you have 60FPS in the game, G-Sync will dynamically change the screen refresh rate to 60Hz giving you a full 60 frames per second without interruption.
In the meantime, variable overdrive will ensure that the pixel response speed is adjusted accordingly, thus avoiding overspending at low frame rates and sensitivity at high FPS.
Another advantage of the G-Sync module is that it replaces the usual scaler on the monitor, so you will have less input delays.
