    We review Nvidia GSYNC. G-Sync eliminates the problems that come with VSYNC both on and off. Meaning no more Sync stuttering and that dreaded demon of them all, Screen tearing. G-Sync basically is a t...

    How much for a 24" 1080p panel? Jokes.

    Perhaps I missed this but was there any pricing on the G-Sync module mod? My son has the VG248QE.

    Damn. Too expensive. I guess the exclusivity's to blame. And/or NV just upped their greedy mode. :(

    I was very interested - that was, until I saw the price.

    I'm getting a little annoyed at Nvidia, honestly, as if they can, they'll charge a huge premium for as long as possible, so G-Sync will never be cheap unless AMD come out with their own similar tech.

    I also think Mantle could be an awesome change for PC Gaming - but, I bet Nvidia will never use it - even though they could and should. I seriously hope they don't come out with their own.

    Anyway, for that price, you'd have to be barking mad.

    I agree with AvengerUK....youd truly off to be off your rocker to purchase one of these panels anywhere close to 600$...you can buy a gorgeous 1440p panel for half that price....

    1440p 60-120hz > 1080p Gsync lol

    Great for those who own a 60Hz monitor or experience screen tearing.

    But what if you don't fit into the above categories - Gsync is of little to no benefit...hence why imo it's overhyped and way too expensive.

    Oh, I had TN there as well, must have deleted it by mistake. I would think gsync is cool, but it would have to be a 27" 1440p ips/pls 120hz panel. that would cost a £1000+. I'll stick to my Qnix at 120hz 1440p, PLS goodness. at 110+hz you really don't struggle with tearing any more.

    Wow, that is waaaaay more expensive than I thought it would be.

    Hope modules come out to mod existing 120hz Asus monitors.

    Aye. Make it cheaper and bundle it with something else than TN garbage and I would be excited. For now I'll keep my 1080p 75Hz IPS.

    The panel costs slightly over €300 without G-sync and now they want over €500...right...
