NVIDIA’s G-Sync is a module for gaming screens to alleviate display tearing (replace: video demo!)
NVIDIA head Jen-Hsun Huang revealed G-Sync this morning, a module for gaming screens that helps alleviate display tearing and skipping points. Quite a lot of show corporations are already on board, together with ASUS, BenQ, Philips and ViewSonic. Huang stated the module kills stutter totally, pushes down lag and kills tearing. The screens with G-Sync look the identical as a traditional show, because the module is constructed into the rear (as seen above). We’re advised by NVIDIA’s Ujesh Desai that the module will not make new screens rather more costly, and the module works with GPUs which have Kepler structure (so the GTX 660 and up). G-Sync screens shall be obtainable beginning in Q1 2014.
“This eliminates the penalty for the drop in body fee,” Epic’s Mark Rein stated of the module. “The entire Rein household might be getting new screens this yr,” he stated with amusing. A fast demo we have been proven of a V-Sync’d monitor versus one with G-Sync did what NVIDIA promised: display tearing was eradicated and lag was imperceptible. We’ll have a video of NVIDIA’s new G-Sync module arising shortly — keep tuned!
Replace: We have added a palms-on demo with G-Sync. It appeared implausible in individual, however because of the limitations of our digital camera gear, a number of the enhancements will not be obvious in our video. Discover that demo simply after the break.
