Nvidia has developed the G-SYNC module, built to fit inside a display and work with the hardware and software in most of GeForce GTX GPUs.


With V-SYNC off you can have fast input response time, but images are seriously corrupted by tearing. Or, you can use V-SYNC on, but then games get laggy, and any time the GPU’s FPS falls below the refresh rate of the monitor, animation stutters badly.


With G-SYNC, the monitor begins a refresh cycle right after each frame is completely rendered on the GPU. Since the GPU renders with variable time, the refresh of the monitor now has no fixed rate.

Gimmick to sell monitors. Seriously? Surely this could be built into GPU's and applied through software.

Useless! You can lock your frames per second to 60 with the help of MSi Afterburner or Dxtory.

Like the poster above me said, locking the FPS to 60 works just fine. Console games do it too. It even improves controller latency for consoles, and keyboard/mouse input for PC's. Forget BOTH V-sync and G-sync.
