what's up guys I'm random Frank P and as promised I'm a short little video for you on how to enable G sync with your free sync monitors this is something consumers have been asking for for years now and it's finally a possibility now that Nvidia is onboard in 2019 you could take advantage of the refresh rate in your monitors without having to worry about the compatibility with AMD and NVIDIA so it's pretty simple shouldn't take more than around you know five minutes max and I'll kind of show you you like the tutorial and that comparison difference so you can see the before and after with like the tearing and stuff versus now that's smoother more you know high refresh rate in your gameplay so I'm gonna do this on two different panels because it's for just for my setup my Ultra wise here that I have through the LG 34 GK 950 FB so you guys know I'm big fans of ultra wide 34 40 by 1440 P and they have 144 Hertz refresh rate in this panel and for those who aren't a fan of ultra wide so you want that traditional 16 by 9 ratio while you're gaming we also have the LG 32 GK 850 f b which is 2560 by 1440 p2 31 and a half inch model this also has 144 Hertz refresh rate with their Radeon free synced to technology so first and foremost in order for this even be possible you have to have the latest Nvidia either the GTX 10 series or the newer RT X series so GTX 10 50 60 70 80 or some of the newer RT X cards and also it might sound silly but you have to have the latest update for your drivers it's often one of the things that people overlook and forget is to update your drivers so it has to be updated it was released with a geforce driver 417 dot seven one and I came out last month which enabled all this so just make sure you have that or the latest version depending on when you're watching this then lastly you need to use the display port cable because HDMI is not gonna work with this so starting off on your actual monitor if it navigate through the menus to turn on freesync or adaptive sync depending on your panel these LG monitors do use free sync like I said so we're gonna turn that on now onto your PC if the right-click on your desktop to enter the Nvidia control panel and the first thing under manage 3d settings you want matta gate down till you see vertical sync click on that and turn on next up under the display tab is the setup g-sync menu you're going to click on the box that says enable sinc I always play my games in just full-screen mode so I'm just gonna leave that as is now if usually a multi-monitor setup underneath that section for picking which display you're using the Sun so notice the Nvidia logo here on the primary one then I'm gonna click on the box for the enable settings for the DES selective display model and again you only have to do this if you have multiple monitors click apply to save it they might take a second to refresh though you should be good to go so from here the tactical stuff is all pretty much done there is some arguing back and forth on the internet about people saying that in the actual game you should also have vsync on others are saying no I reached out to Nvidia rep and they told me this you should have it on by default already but like I showed you before in the admitted control panel just make sure you have that basic option turned on under the manage 3d settings and then in your actual game you want to have vsync turned off that's gonna give you the best results with no tearing so again doing it in your Nvidia panels gonna have some these system drivers are recognizing g-sync this is gonna eliminate that confusion of having it turned on in game and also if you want to take it a step further a lot of games do you have a built in FPS limiter their graphics settings you're gonna want to cap the framerate three frames below your monitors maximum refresh rate so with these LG monitors here again like I said 144 Hertz so we're gonna set it to 841 Hertz what this is gonna do is they're gonna prevent the actual frame rate from going over that upper g-sync limit which is that going to disable g-sync and that's why you're gonna notice a lot of the tearing you can use something like rivatuner or other third-party programs but a lot of these modern titles now do have the option to set a frame rate cap so pretty much so you have it big thing to remember here g-sync and vsync turned on and your control panel and vsync turned off in game settings then once you get it all enabled if you have a high refresh rate monitor like the hundred forty-four hertz one the difference from always playing at the limited like 60 Hertz to now jumping to that 144 is it's extremely noticeable in person since these videos are being you know filmed and export at 30fps it might not seem like a huge drastic difference but in person it is just so much more smooth I've been playing a lot of battlefield 5 lately and again once you have it enabled it all looks great now Nvidia does currently have a list of like they're approved panels they're talking about their main goal they said is to go through and physically check every single panel out there to make it compatible so their list right now is kind of limited with a you know deemed certified like I said they're going through and they are testing each one so it's a matter of time before they actually update the full list of what is certified but as long as your actual panel that you buy does have free sync and you have the latest r-tx or the gtx cards you're gonna be fine so right guys that'll wrap it up to my tutorial on enabling g-sync with your free sync monitors hope you all enjoyed and hope you found it helpful if you did give this video a big thumbs up show your support feel free to follow me on

  1. My asus pg279q has very very SLIGHT backlight bleed on two small spots and a little bit of ips glow on the bottom right corner. Worth changing ii until i get a perfect one or is it expected to always have some flaws. Mine Quality Checked Passed btw

  2. @randomfrankp nice video as always but there are are view thinks you oversaw while enabling gsync.
    1. You should enable gsync in fullscreen AND windowed mode, because some games run frameless windowed mode natively wich will prevent the usage of adaptive sync if you set it up like you described. Until I found that out, it drove me crazy because in some games gsync would work an in others it would not. Took me a few hours to figure that out.
    2. Don't activate vsync because it introduces high input lag in games wich run at higher framerates than the max. refreshrate of your monitor. Games with such high framerates are usually the competive type where high input lag can have a negative impact on your in-game performance. That means instead of using vsync you should cap the max framerate to 5 to 10 frames below the max. refreshrate of your monitor in the in game settings. (most modern games offer that option) that way you can insure that you stay within the refreshrate of your monitor without having to deal with the cons associated with vsync!
    Hope that will make your lifes a little more easy!
    Otherwise continue with the great work my dude!
