Can't say the same about AMD's mantle etc.

Amazing how little people know about how GPU rendering is accomplished.

They are. It's on the G-Sync page.

I'm honestly leaning more towards the korean monitors not supporting it.
It also states that the monitor will have an external power supply after the modification, presumably to fit the extra hardware. I wouldn't look for the cheaper Korean monitors to be supported. (Of course, this photo only talks about the ASUS monitor at this point)

CRT monitors can't do this.
Kepler and G-Sync monitor are necessary.
Let me spell this out for some of you. This technology turns a monitor with a fixed refresh rate into a monitor with a variable refresh rate. It matches the refresh rate on the monitor to the frame rate your GPU is producing, making vsync unnecessary. It will eliminate both screen tearing (vsync off) and input lag (vsync on). Obviously this is in theory, but considering the "WOW" responses during the presentation, it apparently works.Edited by zooterboy - 10/18/13 at 10:57am
