Nvidia to certify 7 more FreeSync Monitors as G-Sync Compatible next week

It looks like Nvidia is ready to expand its list of G-Sync Compatible monitors once again, this time including models from the likes of Acer, AOPEN, ASUS, Gigabyte and LG. 

On April 23rd, Nvidia will release a new driver update which will bring their list of G-Sync Compatible monitors, which can use G-Sync over Adaptive Sync, to 24 monitors, adding three new Acer models to their list and one monitor from each of the other manufacturers mentioned above. 

Perhaps what’s most noteworthy is that some of these new monitors do not use TN screens, which was a factor that has been common to all of Nvidia’s other G-Sync Compatible displays so far, with Gigabyte’s Aorus AD27QD, which features a 10-bit IPS panel, gaining G-Sync Compatibility. Our review for Gigabyte’s Aorus AD27QD HDR FreeSync monitor is available to read here. 

Below is a list of Nvidia’s upcoming G-Sync Compatible monitors;

– Acer KG271 Bbmiipx;
– Acer XF240H Bmjdpr
– Acer XF270H Bbmiiprx
– AOPEN 27HC1R Pbidpx
– Asus VG248QG
– Gigabyte Aorus AD27QD
– LG 27GK750F (AUSUMPM / BKRUMPN)

Nvidia to certify 7 more FreeSync Monitors as G-Sync Compatible next week  

Nvidia has realised that the expense of their G-Sync monitors has handed control of the variable refresh rate display market over to AMD, giving budget gamers a reason to buy displays and graphics cards from their competitors. With Intel planning to jump on the variable refresh rate bandwaggon with VESA Adaptive Sync support, Nvidia needed to follow suit eventually, as otherwise, they would be handing their competitors key advantages in the gaming space. 

Creating their G-Sync Compatible certifications allows Nvidia to adopt VESA Adaptive Sync while cementing in the eyes of consumers that G-Sync is the superior Variable Refresh Rate standard, and while some will call this marketing BS, it is hard to deny that Nvidia’s certification efforts are helpful for consumers, as Nvidia is basically branding the best Adaptive Displays on the market as “G-Sync Compatible”, which is useful information for all PC gamers.
