its really frustrating trying to explain to people why its so good when they pretty much refuse to even attempt to understand it.
You preach G-sync as if it was the best experience one can get on a gaming monitor. And that is wrong.
- First off there is the incompatibility between G-sync mode and the low persistence ULMB mode.
- Secondly G-sync at max refresh rate and over has virtually no benefits over V-sync at max refresh rate.
Don't get me wrong. G-sync is awesome for what it does. And I'm already sold on it. I bought my GPU from Nvidia for G-sync and I'll probably jump on the Rog Swift as soon as it's available to me.
But let's be clear about G-sync mode:
Using G-sync mode isn't using the monitor to it's full potential and getting the best experience it can provide.
G-sync is there to remove the tearing and the micro stuttering from games for which the frame rates aren't stable above the max refresh rate of the monitor.
That's what G-sync does. It makes low fluctuating frame rates significantly more "playable". Nothing more.
