NVIDIA's G-Sync is a module for gaming monitors to alleviate screen tearing
By Ben Gilbert posted Oct 18th, 2013 at 10:46 AM

NVIDIA head Jen-Hsun Huang revealed G-Sync this morning, a module for gaming monitors that helps alleviate screen tearing and skipping issues. A variety of display companies are already on board, including ASUS, BenQ, Philips and ViewSonic. Huang said the module kills stutter entirely, pushes down lag and kills tearing. The monitors with G-Sync look the same as a normal display, as the module is built into the rear (as seen above). We're told by NVIDIA's Ujesh Desai that the module won't make new monitors much more expensive, and the module works with GPUs that have Kepler architecture (so the GTX 660 and up). G-Sync monitors will be available starting in Q1 2014.

"This eliminates the penalty for the drop in frame rate," Epic's Mark Rein said of the module. "The whole Rein family will be getting new monitors this year," he said with a laugh. A quick demo we were shown of a V-Sync'd monitor versus one with G-Sync did what NVIDIA promised: screen tearing was eliminated and lag was imperceptible. We'll have a video of NVIDIA's new G-Sync module coming up shortly -- stay tuned!
Well, maybe it's time to for me to get a new monitor, making my workstation a 4 monitor set up. I'll see when the tech is implemented and tested to see if it's worth it. Of course, if you're part of the green team (Nvidia) and you have a Kepler card, I don't see a reason why you wouldn't get a G-Sync monitor if it doesn't increase the price unless you hate the overall specs of the monitor.

I just read that Asus is making their newest monitors with G-Sync support. I hope Samsung joins in as they made some of the most impressive screens I've seen in the past couple years.
