My control panel gives the option Monitor Technology, and has either GSYNC or ULMB or Fixed Refresh as an option.

But there is also a separate section called Vertical Sync that you can enable at the same time.

The GSYNC option is monitor side syncing.
The VSYNC option is GPU side syncing.

With both enabled, everything essentially behaves like old fashioned VSYNC.

Just want to make sure. So should it's ok that I enable both to have Gsync working at all times?

Hi - just tested couple things with both gsync on/off along with vsync on/off and clearly gsync on with vsync off is better. so much smoother. So for those who have updated nvidia drivers, make sure to have Gsync on wuth vsync off in nvidia control oanel.

No, you shouldn't have Vsync enabled at all at any time. Gsync will still be enabled, but you'll get the input lag of Vsync.

Best way to make sure Gsync is enabled and working at full potential is:
1. Make sure it's enabled in the monitor menu
2. Make sure it's enabled in the Nvidia control panel, globally.
3. Make sure Vsync isn't enabled in the Nvidia control panel
4. Make sure Vsync isn't enabled in the game

Another thing to look out for is global settings VS program settings in the Nvidia control panel. You could for example, have Vsync on globally without realizing it. You could also have Vsync enabled for one specific game. You don't want any of that.

When you first plugin a GSYNC monitor, it should be set on automatically. The real effort is making sure Vsync is entirely disabled, and making sure it doesn't come on accidentally.

"For enthusiasts, we’ve included a new advanced control option that enables G-SYNC to be disabled when the frame rate of a game exceeds the maximum refresh rate of the G-SYNC monitor. For instance, if your frame rate can reach 250 on a 144Hz monitor, the new option will disable G-SYNC once you exceed 144 frames per second. Doing so will disable G-SYNCs goodness and reintroduce tearing, which G-SYNC eliminates, but it will improve input latency ever so slightly in games that require lighting fast reactions."

Read here and it explains how it works with latest drivers. http://www.geforce.com/whats-new/articles/g-sync-gets-even-better

Here is a thread about it on Nvidia's forums. https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/838560/what-is-the-new-g-sync-vsync-on-off-option-/

Just got my XB270HU yesterday, plugged it in to make sure there were no dead pixels before I mounted it to my dual 27" stand. After a few hours of playing on it I am in love with it, never had a gsync panel before, and the last time I was able to play with a high HZ was on a CRT. One question for you guys, do you normally run 60hz on the desktop or higher? I tried 144hz but it gave me a headache after a little while, not sure if it was due to my 60hz panel that is right next to it messing with my eyes or what.

I always leave mine at 144 Hz.

In Nvidia control panel there is an option for refresh rate that can be set for each game, or globally.

If you select highest available, that game will run at 144Hz. If you select application controlled then it will run at the refresh rate of the monitor (I set mine to 60), or what's in game (if the game has in game Hz control).

In 3rd person games I play with a controller I set it to application controlled and run them at 60Hz. In a fps such as, L4D2 I set it to Highest available and it runs at 144Hz.

This is important, make any adjustments to the control panel 3d settings at the game itself. Not globally. The only thing I change globally is texture quality, which I set to the max settings.


This is a post I wrote answering a question about Gsync messing up. When Gsync messes up you'll run at very low GPU usage and fps will suffer. You'll end up with freezing and stuttering. It's impossible to miss.

Question
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Anybody else notice with driver 358.50, when starting up a game their GPU is running at low usage?

My MSI GTX 980Ti in say, Far Cry 3 or Batman: Arkham Origins will be running at 50-60% usage, achieving pretty poor FPS for the power of this card (which I bought to power my Asus ROG Swift PG278Q at a decent 1440p/4k DSR framerate)

However, my findings are that when you tab out the game or drop it to desktop & then go back into the game, usage goes to full and the game runs as it should do?

My answer
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Disable and then enable Gsync. (I'm using windowed and fullscreen fine).

Don't adjust anything other then textures in the Global settings. Make any game adjustments to the individual game itself. This includes preferred refresh rate, leave it highest in global and adjust on each game if you want it app controlled.

I leave Vsync on at the global level. In batman if I switch it to off at the program settings tab it causes the issue you mentioned. I can't remember if I tested app controlled or not. Left at on it doesn't have the issue.

I'm using driver 358.59, but, it seems to be about the same for both versions of the driver. It is Gsync wonkyness.

*This really threw me for a loop at first, but, I've got it figured out now luckily. It's a pain but you should be able to get it working correctly without having to alt-tab out.


At least from what I've experienced there are settings that will throw Gsync off and cause some games to run like crap.

That makes zero sense since the monitor is already displaying the frames as they come. The whole reason for input lag was because with vsync, the GPU is waiting X milliseconds to sync frames with a non gsync monitor.

You won't see reduced input lag beyond 144hz on a gsync monitor, because
1. The monitor can't display beyond 144hz any faster
2. The GPU isn't forced to wait, it's already always working as fast as it can

The reason why you'd see decreased input lag with a non-gsync monitor @ 60hz for example, is because
1. Vsync is off, which keeps the GPU from waiting
2. Half frames are arriving earlier than others (but are tearing)

This simply does not apply to adaptive sync in monitors.

So let's recap...

1. Your monitor is not being limited, it's displaying full frames as fast as they come
2. Your system isn't forced to wait.

i.e. there is zero way to reduce perceivable input latency, because if your monitor can't display more frames and your GPU isn't forced to wait, the perceivable latency is as low as it's ever gonna get.
