    Driver can be downloaded from Nvidia:

    https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/geforce-417-71-whql-driver-download.html

    HOW TO ENABLE ADAPTIVE SYNC;

    • Turn Freesync ON in the monitor settings

    • Let the monitor disconnect and reconnect

    • Taskbar > Right Click > Nvidia Control Panel > Global Settings > Monitor Technology > Gsync Compatible -- Hit Apply. Monitor should disconnect and reconnect as if you were doing a driver update.

    • If your monitor is over 60hz (it likely is) you will have to go into Change Resolution > Select your monitor -- change it back to 144hz.

    Only single displays are currently supported; multiple monitors can be connected but no more than one display should have G-SYNC enabled.

    Not sure if I should install these since I don't use freesync.

    Well, that's super lame from Nvidia. Not sure what I was expecting. I guess they have to push sales of their overpriced $5000 TVs so they block people from using freesync over HDMI on "cheap" Samsung and upcoming LG OLED TVs.

    So, a driver that only focuses on bugs and not Game Ready? Cool, not seen these in a while.

    Tested it with Viewsonic XG2402 monitor and the Nvidia Pendulum demo. I can confirm that it works flawlessly.

    Wow, my LG 29um68-P works great, zero skipped frames like I used to get when running 75hz freesync! :D:D:D

    Just installed these and it enabled "G-SYNC, G-SYNC Compatible" mode by itself.

    My monitor is an Acer XG270HU.

    Would like to know this as well. Any reason to install these for those of us on regular screens? I'm not even using a monitor, haven't for years. Using a 43 inch 4k 60hz tv as my monitor.
