NVIDIA® G-SYNC™ is an advanced technology that matches the monitor's refresh rate to the GPU frame rate. G-SYNC eliminates tearing, and minimizes stutter and input lag, providing a faster, smoother gaming experience when running 3D applications and games. G-SYNC requires a G-SYNC or G-SYNC Compatible display.  




Steps to Use G-SYNC

  1. Enable G-SYNC (NVIDIA Control Panel Display->Set up G-SYNC page).

  2. Connect a G-SYNC or G-SYNC Compatible display and configure it to be the primary display (NVIDIA Control Panel Display->Set up multiple displays page).

  3. Make sure Monitor Technology is set to G-SYNC/G-SYNC Compatible (NVIDIA Control Panel 3D Settings ->Manage 3D Settings page).
