Do you have the list of capable monitors?
I have LG 34UC79G Ultrawide. Is this one compatible, guru?
It's definitely something people should be aware of when choosing a new monitor, it may not bother you, but that doesn't mean others won't notice it.
People seem to be forgetting AMD is shifting to Freesync 2. Just saying for a friend. So Nvidia will support the old Freesync now...but waht about freesync 2?
I have the same screen and i think it´s compatible. The list you want is this, already posted by Angantyr:https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/
Nvidia doesn't support Freesync. They support Adaptive Sync. Freesync 2 just makes LFC mandatory and has HDR. Nvidia can technically do both already but who knows if they'll support it or not.
FS2 is (almost) same from control standpoint. AMD's definition of FS 2 revolves about additional features of screen like:
Lower latency, wider color space, brightness for HDR.
It is basically a reply to nVidia's: "But freesync screens are cheap trash with no features."
By setting up certain minimum requirements outside of having variable refresh rate.
Therefore I think FS 2 screens should work with nV's cards as well.
how about a little bit of separation between LCD MATRIX maximum refresh rate and adaptive sync technology used in the driver chip? are we still talking about adaptive sync or the quality of the matrix ?
the range is big enough to fit your settings efficiently
nVidia couldn't care less about what internet says. This has more to do with their BFGs failing as no big manufacturers bought the idea, and VRR coming to all new 2019 TVs, so they didnt want to lose the VRR market to AMD.
BFG was their hail Mary, and since that didn't work, they had to go with Plan B.
My point was , if the freesync Alieware monitor 240hz will work fine with a nvidia video card after January 15th or when the driver update is released...?
On a tech site, VRR should not be officially labeled as 'Freesync'. Thank you.
So only 10 and 20 series is supported?
Is there any chance this could work on 980ti too?
Like some community made driver to unlock that too or anything?
So BS of Nvidia to always limit older GPUs with their drivers like this hoping people upgrade their GPUs.
You never know, just wait and see. There's no reason why it couldn't happen.
@Vipu2 There is a reason to not happen. Age. R9 series from AMD do not support freesync2. Old HDMI version. So, gtx 9 series with older hardware, are a limitation.Only, gtx 10 and rtx 20 series are eligible for it.
Actually there is a reason. Maxwell generation only supports Display port version 1.2. You need 1.2a or 1.3 and above for VRR/Freesync.
EDIT: added 1.2a
Does anyone know if the Viewsonic XG2402 will be supported?
Well the XG258Q has a range from 48-240 on hdmi 2.0 and dp, i prefer hdmi, so that should be perfect once this driver is out
i was saving for the PG258Q that has g sync but it has only hdmi 1.4 so im forced to use dp and theres no aura lighting
G-sync came out before freesync
It is not BS my friend. It is because Maxwell gen came with Display port 1.2 transceivers, and VRR/FreeSync requires 1.3 and above.
He is talking about this new GSync, which is freesync with GSync sticker on it. And The laptop GSync, which was again freesync with GSync sticker.
