Even at $400, a GSYNC experience is potentially cheaper if you play new games (how are you going to get 120fps in Battlefield 4?
), and it also includes the LightBoost sequel too, that John Carmack mentioned.
This is how:
Minimum FPS never dips below 123 even in 64man servers with a single 680 at 1300/7000
Over 50 Fraps 180s FPS captures I've only seen 117 once.
Minimum FPS is actually higher if I remove my 125FPS cap through game console.
Also the card runs cooler with cap since I'm never at 100% usage. And since it's a lightning, the LN2 BIOS keeps my GPU clocks locked, they don't jump around.
When I'm scanning my screen for headshots at Mach 3 my brain phases out graphics details. It's just scanning for geometric shapes like head and torso continuously. When you play at a high level, the moment you stop scanning to admire the scenery, you die. I'm not trying to sound like an elitist but this is what actually happens.
As such GFX are not needed for twitch games in my experience.
RTS is completely different, I spend most of my time planning and get to enjoy the GFX etc. But also in those games 120FPS at 120hz strobed is not needed.
