    If you see G-Sync settings then NV hardware and software perceive your monitor as compatible - freesync works as intended.

    Under Set up G-SYNC if can think Enable G-SYNC, G-SYNC Compatible without warning, then your display is G-SYNC support.

    But if you can tick but showing "Selected display is not validated as G-SYNC compatible" then this display is not tested and it may not work all time.

    I know this as my previous monitor is not certified and some games still had chopping issue.

    Now I change to certified G-SYNC compatible monitor and it is working as it suppose, no more chopping issue.
    Certified G-SYNC monitor will have NVIDIA G-SYNC sticker.

    Make sure you connect monitor with DisplayPort cable, because for majority of G-Sync compatible displays G-Sync compatibility (with NVIDIA cards ) only works through DP, not through HDMI.

    This means your monitor model is not test and certified by Nvidia. You just can select it, it still may work but may not working in proper in certain games.

    They is nothing you can do about it as the model not certified is forever not certified. Just enable it and see which games is work, which is not.

    Only monitor list here - GeForce G-SYNC Monitors: Manufacturers & Specs (nvidia.com) is certified by Nvidia and confirmed working perfectly.

    Freesync monitors do and can work with gsync. Check your monitors OSD menu and see if you can enable free to the extended setting. Once done try to check the boxes in the nvidia control panel to enable it. Once done download the nvidia pendulum demo to test and see if you see tearing in the swinging pendulum. My monitor is freesync ONLY and it works with gsync no problem. Type your monitors model number and follow it with gsync enable in google search to see if other people have got it working. The display does not need to be on any gsync certified list to work. Mine isn't and it works fine. Good luck!

    G-sync certified is better have as some games is not behave correctly in older Freesync only monitor.

    I have LG 34UC79G which is not certified G-Sync, it do working but certain games is tearing and not working.

    I also have LG 34GN850 and LG 27GL850 where both is G-Sync certified and those games got tearing issue is behave nicely and no issue in this two G-Sync certified monitor.
