Hopefully, nvidia doesn't renege and drop freesync support in future driver updates.

Only heard about it on some old monitor but never saw proofs.

I'd personally choose the S2719DGF, so you will have support for VRR regardless of GPU choice in the future - AMD, Nvidia and Intel all support "Freesync".

Besides, the new one has higher Hz, 155 Hz with LFC

I got to test both of these monitors last night side by side. I just build pc for my brother which has a rtx 2070 in it. So my brother bought both of these monitors to try out. Long story short. The freesync version actually looked better picture and color wise. What about to say next line ups with reviewers have mentioned also.

The gsync version definitely has better motion blur. I also find that the monitor had better motion blur at 60hz. Plus you get better gsync range where as on the freesync version. You get 40-155 with a amd card. And 55-155 with a nvidia card. And yes gsync was working on the freesync version. However i did notice some flickering on certain menus but i think thats common with lots of freesync monitors so I wouldn't worry to much about that. Anyways the gsync version does have ulmb which i felt worked good but made the monitor extremely dim. Especially if you turn the pulse width down to 10.

Picture wise the freesync version looked better. The gsync version had a blue tint with its black levels. It just didn't look good in dark scenes.

The freesync version has a lot more features and more white balance settings. Neither of these monitors have a setting to adjust gamma. I think you have to do it in the nvidia control panel.

Not sure what else to say? My brother is going to return the gsync version and keep the freesync version. Any other questions? Lmk. But I would reread what reviews have said because that line ups with what i saw between the two.

ULMB always makes the monitor extremely dim, which is why I don't like it.
I rarely uses it.

Thanks kd5151, I'll try and absorb that. The S2716DG direct from Dell Canada is still at a crazy good deal. I've never followed Dell before, IDK if they only have deals 2, 3, 10 times per year ? This is the 2nd time for it, and once that I remember for the free-sync model.

The Dell TN models do go on on sale every now and then. The freesync model just came out but surprisingly its already going on sale and is cheaper than the gsync version. I think on google express you could get the freesync version for like $260 USD out the door.

I am having some problem with my VEGA64's, so I'd replaced it with my HTPC rig with a GTX 1080, monitor's the Acer XR341CK which is a Freesync monitor that happens to be Gsync compatible. Happy to report that I have it Gsync'd at 75Hz without any problem.

Rig 1 - AMD AM4 Ryzen R9 3900X | Gigabyte Aorus X570 Xtreme | 4x 8GB XPG D60G DDR4 3200Mhz | PC VEGA64 Red Devil + Acer XR341CK | 256GB Sabrent Rocket NVMe PCIe M.2 (OS) | 4TB Samsung 860 EVO + 2TB Samsung QVO + 6TB WD Black HDD | Corsair HX1000 Platinum | 64bit Win10 Pro
Rig 2 - Intel i7 3960X | Asus R4E | 4x4GB Corsair Dom Plat 2133mhz | 2x GB VEGA64 Gaming OC + Samsung C49HG90DME 32:9 | Seasonic X-1250 | 64bit Win10 Pro
