Following NVIDIA's announcement of their newest drivers, MSI monitors are effectively G-Sync Compatible! This technology allows G-Sync to be used on Adaptive Sync monitors.
G-Sync, an anti-tearing, anti-flickering and anti-stuttering monitor technology designed by NVIDIA, was once only exclusive to monitors that had passed the NVIDIA certification. With the newest release of NVIDIA GPU driver, NVIDIA now allows G-Sync to be used on monitors that support Adaptive Sync technology when they are connected to an NVIDIA graphics card.
At the moment, not all Adaptive Sync monitors on the market are perfectly G-Sync Compatible. MSI, on the other hand, has been constantly testing Adaptive Sync monitors to determine if they are G-Sync Compatible. Below are the test results.
*Models not listed are still under internal testing
Graphics cards used for the test:
MSI RTX 2070 Ventus 8G
MSI RTX 2080 Ventus 8G
MSI GTX 1080 Gaming 8G
System Requirements for G-Sync Compatible:
• Graphics Card: NVIDIA 10 series (pascal) or newer
• VGA driver version should be later than 417.71
• Display Port 1.2 (or above) cable
• Windows 10
Limitations at the moment:
• Only a single display is currently supported; Multiple monitors can be connected but no more than one display should have G-SYNC Compatible enabled
