    i see juddering and it's not smooth and there are strange micro-pauses every now & then on screen :D

    i always keep vsync off anyway, so i don't care about G-Sync.

    Thank God someone finally decided to sort this vsync/tearing/lag problem at last.

    Very clever of NVidia to release this information into the world just as everyone was about to buy the soon to be released ATI R290X though... will stop many people including me in my tracks now and wait to see if NVidia bring out better cards or drop price of Titan so we can take advantage of this. Will also cause me to put my planned upgrade of Dell 24" to a Dell 27" on hold too now :(

    I can't see it mentioned, but I wonder if VG278HE is compatible.

    You need a new monitor or maybe a daughter board add on if available at some point to upgrade your monitor. That is doubtful though.

    That's what I'm thinking. I've been debating getting a 1440p. But not sure which one yet. :( Definitely going to have to wait a while to see what happens with G-Sync. Should be very interesting.

    I would hold off and see how this pans out. No rush and get the best kit!

    The worst part about planning an upgrade. Yesterday I was pretty sure I would change monitors. But this changes everything!

    Lol. It's a good job it was announced now then so you get the chance to buy one later instead of buying one without it. The only thing I don't like is you are locked into buying Nvidia. I hope they do make this for alot of monitors and you can use any card.

    I agree. The choice between Nvidia and AMD is becoming harder and harder, considering that each will give you vastly different benefits. Even though it seems that it's quite targeted for some people, others are going to have a lot more difficulty making that choice.

    You have a good point. Alot of Nvidia tech does seem to go that way. Good ideas not implemented very well and kept as for niche market instead of expanding it to all. Makes good business sense though? I don't think so. The amount of Physx games every year seems to dwindle and they are not so well implemented.

    I don't see how this will be forgotten, smooth gaming at fluctuating frames and the elimination of stutter and tearing is a big deal. A lot of developers are on board as well as monitor manufactures.
    Try telling the HPC market CUDA wasn't revolutionary. Their offerings are a good selling point, I know a lot of people that like being able to use CUDA/PhysX/GFE/Stereo3D and looking forward to ShadowPlay/*********/NVENC. Being able to use G-Sync will be another added selling point and imo a pretty good one for people that enjoy smooth gaming.

    Best business decision would be to not limit it to certain displays and gpus. They would really sell a lot with that.. I won't be buying any TN displays in any near future :/

    Yep. I would be happy about version that supports 75hz or 100hz max if it means that it would work in non-tn screens. I will never buy TN panel again.

    So if you won't buy TN what do you have that's better? Unless you have bought an Overlord or Qnix, 60hz just does not cut it any more.

    I've never heard of either of those. I just use P-IPS panel atm. I'm all about good picture quality tbh. Input lag on this monitor is like 0.5 frames iirc. Which is ok and 60-75Hz is good for me o_O

    And reading about those displays they wouldn't cut it for me :D

    My 75Hz IPS screen which has basically no input lag either (almost all can do it without frame skipping) is nice enough trade off. TN looks like **** and viewing angles are poor enough to make top part of the screen look different than bottom. No fun having high refresh rate when the image looks like ****. I've been "overclocking" displays for ages.

    Honestly this should have already been being done by the tv manufacturers.

    Yes but what monitors do you have? I'm curious. Especially with you saying they can do 75hz and not much lag.
    Thanks!
