How are G-sync modules inserted into current monitors? I thought they were supposed to be built-in to upcoming monitors?

Unless I understood it wrong, you open up the monitor, replace the controller PCB with the G-Sync one (no soldering required) and close the monitor back up. Or get someone else to have it done beforehand for a premium.

Oh ok and which monitors are supported for this upgrade?

At first, only ASUS VG248QE is officially supported. But they'll add more resolutions and monitors including 4K ones, quite possibly ASUS only though.

 

$175 for the kit, or they get professional modders to do it for you.

They have a partnership with Asus, BenQ, Viewsonic, and Phillips. Its not just Asus that is going to provide G-sync capable monitors. Considering that list, we could possibly see this technology come to even lcd panels, other than monitors.

Oh, nice. I just assumed ASUS only (for a bit) since there was a thread saying nvidia+asus have something awesome.

 

AMD better incorporate something like this. 20nm+Mantle+something like g-sync would be heavenly.

So should the Lightboost community stay away from 290x, at least for now? I have about 4 friends that wanna grab one or two each and I don't know what to tell them. I know Lightboost would work, but with this G-Sync stuff coming out I'm not sure where we stand. I read that Lightboost and G-Sync can't be enabled at the same time, but Vega said Nvidia is working on that?

You can also buy monitors with G-SYNC built in, too -- they'll be coming.

Who knows, we could be a year or two away from a lightboost/gSync combo and/or GSync 4K monitors. On the fence about getting 290X's. But they are fast and easy to set up in LB..

Does anything know about the AOC G2460PQU? Right now its on special at the local store and I'm considering getting it seeing how the other ones like the BenQ is about $200 NZD more and others like the Asus are out of stock (and still expensive as hell).

Personally I'd like to stop using my CRT, it's been a long run but the compatibility issues with custom resolutions etc are a bit annoying.
