Free sync compatibility with nvidia gpu's?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Any idea if this will be ever viable across those platforms?

They want you to pay extra for a G-Sync monitor, so probably not.

Yeah, I've noticed, prices are nuts for those monitors. Might as well get 24" 144hz and forget gsync exists. Still if there was a way to find neutral ground between those 2 and get it to sync.

From what I've read, the higher price compared to Freesync comes from the G-Sync module and licensing fees. I'd much rather see Freesync work on both brands, but don't see Nvidia letting go of something that makes them money unless they have to. I mean, they're still using SLI bridges, something AMD dropped with the 200-series.

Only when VESA changes the adaptive sync from optional to mandatory. Intel is implementing it in next GPUs after Skylake and AMD has it's version the FreeSync which is compatible since VESA adaptive sync is derived/copy/whatever of AMD FreeSync since it's free/open unlike the NV Gsync which is propietary and also requires the monitor maker to buy an expensive card from NV to put inside the monitor to support Gsync. With adaptive sync/FreeSync anyone can implement it how they want as long as they support the specification, no need to buy pay anything really.

Yeah NV is dropping SLI but only to not compete with their more expensive products and isn't replacing it with PCIe solution, instead gotta rely on DX12/Vulkan multiGPU options. Newer AMD cards have it via PCIe because PCIe is damn fast enough to do it without any performance reduction.

Considering the track record of NV I would say never unless VESA pushes them to. Customers would have to start fleeing from NV for them to consider it which is unlikely to happen.
