What is G-SYNC?
Many of the content in this website is talking about G-SYNC compatible monitors. But what really is G-SYNC? well G-SYNC is from NVIDIA a technology that syncs the monitor's refresh rate with the graphics card's frame rate.
But what does G-SYNC actually do? The monitors we know comes with a fixed or set refresh rate(60Hz, 100Hz, 144Hz). So if you have a 100Hz monitor it is refreshing the screen 100 times a second to create the image.
G-SYNC enables the display's refresh rate to adapt dynamically according to the pressure given by the graphics card.
With this, G-SYNC terminates the screen stuttering and tearing for the best as long as the Frames Per Second rate stays in the range of the dynamic refresh rate starting at 30Hz/FPS up to the highest possible refresh rate the monitor has.
Finally, here a list for G-SYNC System Requirements
