NVIDIA’s G-Sync is a module for gaming monitors to alleviate screen tearing

18 Oct


NVIDIA head Jen-Hsun Huang revealed G-Sync this morning, a module for gaming monitors that helps alleviate screen tearing and skipping issues. A variety of display companies are already on board, including Asus, Benq, Philips and ViewSonic. Huang said the module kills stutter entirely, pushes down lag, and kills tearing. The monitors with G-Sync look the same as a normal display, as the module is built into the rear (as seen above). We’re told by NVIDIA’s Ujesh Desai that the module won’t make new monitors much more expensive, and the module works with GPUs that have Kepler architecture (so the GTX 660 and up).

“This eliminates the penalty for the drop in framerate,” Epic’s Mark Rein said of the module. “The whole Rein family will be getting new monitors this year,” he said with a laugh. A quick demo we were shown of a V-Sync’d monitor vs one with G-Sync did what NVIDIA promised: screen tearing was eliminated and lag was imperceptible. We’ll have a video of NVIDIA’s new G-Sync module coming up shortly — stay tuned! by engadget
