post #1891 of 6154
Ok, I have a big issue getting Gsync to work. This problem was reported several pages ago but I still can't solve the problem.


USING GTX 770:

While using the latest driver (344.11, supports Maxwell) my Gsync is broken. I test this using the Gsync pendulum demo. Gsync is shown to be activated during the demo, but I get terrible stuttering, just as much as Vsync On.

When I roll the driver back to 340.52 (released in July, doesn't support Maxwell), Gsync works fine.


USING GTX 980:

I just bought a 980 Strix. While using either of the latest drivers that support Maxwell (344.16 or 344.11), Gsync is broken again. I have confirmed that Gsync does "activate" but it's super stuttery.

I'm unable to roll back to the 340.52 driver since it doesn't support Maxwell so it refuses to install.


Anyone have any ideas? =/

Note 1: The "Enable Gsync" option -is- checked in the control panel.
Note 2: In "Manage 3D settings" I have tried switching Power management mode to both Adaptive and Prefer Maximum Performance, neither works.

FWIW, gsync does not fix stuttering. It fixes tearing.

when in doubt, format and try again. thumb.gif

So update on the vertical lines issue I was having (may be, but I'm not entirely convinced, a pixel inversion artifact): not much of an update.

NCIX ended up being resistant to approve a return without a picture or video of the defect, which is impossible given the motion-based nature of it, and they've said they're sending it to their Asus rep for them to look at. No word yet, but who knows when that will be.

I hope they don't give me nonsense about being outside of the return period...

G-Sync most certainly does fix stuttering due to refresh rate.

Happened to be up working late and was able to snag my second SWIFT from Newegg at 1:00 a.m. If the past weeks have been any indication, I welcome the late night stock as it was probably the only chance a mere mortal would have at ordering one before it sold out. In fact, it remained in stock for over an hour smile.gif. Don't you have three already by now?

2, still looking for the 3rd. I could have got my 3rd already but amazon jacked up the two warehouse deals that popped up over the weekend at $838 and $864 when I just bought warehouse deal last week for $790 for my 2nd one...

Good choice. When getting three it seems a little unjustified paying more than $800, especially if it is open box. Anyway, here's to hoping for a pixel perfect monitor... maybe i should find a VGA or HDMI cable to sacrifice for good luck.

I find it hard to believe Amazon hasn't gotten any real stock since nearly a month ago, I wonder if they actually are getting new stock and just filtering them through their Amazon Warehouse deals at elevated prices. I guess I'll find out tomorrow, if my box is also completely sealed, it's a pretty good shot they are

I can't believe you can't do a REAL ORDER from any site on the internet, or even directly from Asus.

I want one of these monitors, but honestly, playing games to get companies to take my money is getting old. Here is my credit card information, take it, put me on a list, when my name comes to the top of the list, bill me, email me, and left me get on with my life. I don't want to have to respond to a TXT alert at 3am from a web site that monitors it.

I think after TRYING to get one for 2 weeks now, and hearing about the issues people are having. If Asus, Newegg, Amazon, Best Buy, etc are willing to do things PROPERLY, then to heck with this monitor for now. They apparently don't want my money.
