Yes. Almost always 75Hz units will skip frames on nvidia, unless you back down to 60Hz.

Sweclockers review on the BenQ EX3203R confirms that 100Hz is the maximum that nvidia cards support without skipping frames, while AMD does 144hz smoothly. So be sure to do frameskipping tests before deciding to keep any freesync monitor.

I think the main reason many monitors are failing is because Nvidia will require the max refresh to be at least 2.5x of min refresh. That will eliminate hundreds of 48-60 range monitors without any need for real testing. What I am mostly curious about is what will happen when we force VRR from the Nvidia Control Panel on displays with 48-60Hz range ? I guess we'll find out in a few weeks time...




How about the 144hz freesync ones, do they have to run at 120 or lower to not have issues with nvidia card?

Depends, I dont think the 32GK850F has issues, while the EX3203R doesn't run above 100Hz on nvidia. Even though they're both based on the same panel.

Most monitors that have freesync will run at their full hz with no problem.
I had a 75hz LG freesync monitor.
Worked like a charm with my 1070 with no frameskipping.
Same with my S2719DGF.Works at 155hz with no frame skipping.

So as someone that's considering spending +750 for an IPS w/gsync in 2-3 months, what does this mean?

Can I save the money and get a freesync IPS now and it will work later ?? Like with a driver update or something? I'll have an rtx 2070 next week

Hey will this is great news, so Jan 15th some nice top free-sync monitors will get driver support

I'll guess we'll find out soon.

I'd be very curious if someone does an independent Gsync round up comparison test of a bunch of monitors so we can see really which ones will work with Gsync and how well. For me personally it's the 31.5" 1440 ones that I'm most interested in since I just got the LG 32GK850G.

RIP LG 34UC79G ! it's on the blinking side ....

u can see it's the same monitor from the stand.

The panels don't care, you could drive them 10kHz if you wanted to. It's the electronics that differs between monitor makers. One board is often from panel maker (though someone else likely manufactures it) and that one is specific to the panel, it drives the panel, TCON (timing controller), this board is fed by yet another board, the board to which you plug DP, HDMI, ... cables, it does all the image decoding, processing, OSD overlay, ... it can do overdrive but I think TCOn can do overdrive as well.

Meaning, it's BenQ's fault or Nvidia's fault if the same monitor works in the same mode on GPUs not from Nvidia.

I will check the status on Q3279VWFD8 once the driver is available and isn't a pile of mess.
Nvidia will definitely have work to do to make it work on some monitors/brands. Standardized stuff probably not being implemented precisely to the standard. Hence why Nvidia felt like they need to control the monitors as well by offering Gsync board, not that it helped anyway...

It has been reported that turning this LG monitor off and on fixes the issue and this seems to be an issue with their driver right now as it needs to be done on ALL monitors and is even in the reddit "guide" on how to enable adaptive sync. Enable adaptive sync, then turn monitor off and on.
My Q3279VWFD8 needed a bit more than one off/on but the GPU and driver finally stopped their mess and synced up correctly.

It is just awesome.
