I thought it turned color with G-sync was enabled....but when I set mine to MNT, it turns red and never changes color. I would assume that red does not mean G-sync....

But yet I have g-sync enabled in the NVCP....I've tried v-sync on/off. But the light is always red.

Ideas?

Red means on, white means off. If gsync is checked in nvcp and working even on desktop the leds will be red.

If gsync is not functioning or not checked in nvcp, your leds will be white if using mnt status.

You're the man...

So...is there a consensus for what to do with v-sync?

I thought we were just supposed to turn it off....but if you use the default NVCP settings with g-sync on, it turns v-sync to on as well....?

Then this video just did more to confuse exactly what I should be choosing... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MzHxhjcE0eQ

I leave it on because vsync introduces a lot of input lag and gsync gets rid of that.

Technically at 100hz locked, gsync and vsync are the same minus the input lag. The refresh rate matching is only good 40-80 fps I'd say. Vsync by default is on in nvcp but when gsync is checked it is really gsync and not vsync. Kind of confusing but that's how it works lol.

Most gamers will be hard pressed to feel the difference between gsync and vsync when the fps is locked to refresh rate and coming from 144hz vsync monitors to 144 gsync monitors to 60 hz vsync monitors to a 100hz gsync monitor, I can really feel the difference of gsync.

@skypine I'm shocked about what you say on GTA V. For me that was the biggest difference. I have almost the identical rig to you aside from processor and GTA was a huge improvement. I came from the LG too btw. I was getting sick of the input lag and I'm happy I switched.

Interesting how differ opinions about GTA V biggrin.gif

Consensus on the internet? Now that would be something new ... wink.gif

G-Sync always overrides V-Sync as long as the game's framerate is below the maximum refresh rate of the monitor. Only if the game goes above the 100 FPS, your V-Sync setting will dictate whether the monitor will resort back to V-Sync On, resulting in frame latency (although not quite as bad as in the lower FPS regions) or V-Sync Off, resulting in tearing effects (which again, are less noticable at 100 Hz than they are at 60 Hz).

I'd say you first experiment with Off ... if you still notice tearing effects and it bugs you, try out On. If you then notice input lag ... crank up the game's graphics settings so that it never exceeds 100 FPS and problem solved biggrin.gif

Or just limit it to under 100fps smile.gif

Just a quick update, received monitor and i'm very happy, not played with settings as yet other then checking it runs at 100htz, no noise on white screen, no BLB and just a little glow around the lower left corner and slightly in the two top corners. only really noticeable in dark room and black background image. Coming from five year+ 23" LG £130 quid monitor this things off the scale. smile.gif
