G-Sync technology amping up PC gaming
ASUS announced yesterday that it will, going forward for its next generation of monitors, be adopting Nvidia G-Sync technology. It's another development hot off the presses to come from Nvidia's The Way It's Meant to Be Played event , which we featured a couple days ago.
G-Sync tech synchronizes the monitor's refresh rate to the GPU's render rate, so you see images as soon as they're rendered. This means a world of sharper images for gamers, less latency and stuttering, and a smoother experience overall. It renders older tech such as V-Sync obsolete, decreasing latency and eliminating tearing.
ASUS will be releasing a G-Sync line of monitors starting in 2014. The VG248QE gaming monitor will be the first of the line, priced at $399 USD in North America.
If you're looking for some new tech to give you an edge when it comes to gaming, you might want to consider this monitor for your next purchase, as it looks to change gaming performance significantly.
