ASUS MG248Q - Compatibility & AdaptiveSync

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
About to buy this monitor, but got some concerns because my current GPU only has one DVI-I Dual Link port(i know is compatible with analog and digital) available for this display. Now my doubt comes from this screenshots from its Manual on the Asus website:




#1 AdaptiveSync (aka FreeSync?) only works over Display Port(really??), thats fine thinking on getting a new gpu with more DisplayPorts late this year...but need confirmation on this(i've read comments about AdaptiveSync working over DVI-I/D DUAL LINK)....anyway old Vsync On should work with its input lag in the meantime.

Now my main concern comes in the #2 pic: If my old AMD GPU will work with this monitor at 85-144Hz@1920x1080 or do i really need Nvidia GPU? frown.gif

Thanks in advance..

Yes, most FreeSync monitors will only be able to use FreeSync over DisplayPort. There does exist FreeSync over HDMI, but it has to be supported by the monitor specifically, it won't work on most FreeSync monitors.

Yes, you will be able to run at 1920×1080 at 144 Hz over DVI, you just won't be able to use FreeSync.

If your graphics card does not have DisplayPort it's highly unlikely that it supports FreeSync anyway, not all AMD graphics cards support it, only newer ones do.
