I read g-sync is supported over HDMI but only if the device supports 2.1.

Very smooth for me. Removed - promoting YT channel.

Which is to be expected as HDMI <2.1 doesn't have any VRR in its specs. AMD making FS work over HDMI is essentially going out of HDMI specification. We'll see I guess, maybe NV will follow suit.

Hey guys! I have a FreeSync monitor but can't see anywhere to enable Gsync? Can anyone help me? I have GTX 1060 and IIYAMA ProLite XB3270QS-B1 monitor. Do I need to install GFE and Audio drivers since I never install those. Thank you for your help!

I don't see anything about adaptive sync in specs here: https://iiyama.com/gb_en/products/prolite-xb3270qs-b1/

Does it work on Kepler and Maxwell series?
Pascal and Turing only.

I guess it's finally time to upgrade and buy a freesync monitor. My current monitor is a Dell U2715H. I'll be camping on this thread to make sure that I buy the right one. I'm looking for a reasonably-priced 27" to 32" IPS 1440p freesync monitor.

[Shadow of the Tomb Raider]: Fixed occasional application crash in DirectX 12 mode.
Here's hoping that this inadvertently fixed DX12 issues in Rise too...

maybe to reduce input lag or eliminate screen tearing?
That's the goal of gsync/freesync/adaptivesync: eliminate screen tearing and input lag from Vsync. No reason not to use it unless you experience some issues like flickering or display blinking with it on.

Does not really make too much sense to me because: - the currently available VGA cars all have HDMI 2.0 (so, if going outside of official HDMI specs is such an issue for nVidia, then their driver should require HDMI 2.1 on the VGA card side as well) - pretty much all currently available TVs with VRR capability use HDMI 2.0 (with features either "back-ported" from HDMI 2.1 specs or "borrowed" from AMD FreeSync specs --- I am not sure which one, or if these are effectively the same) However, I always expected nVidia to support VRR on TVs with future HDMI 2.1 VGA cars (turing-refresh?) only, so this wouldn't be a big surprise. Besides, LG is unlikely to release firmware updates with VRR capabilities for their 2018 OLEDs (like my current C8), so I am not in a rush (and I feel like trying some Radeon cards again if the crypto market starts recovering and I find myself wanting to build a little hobby farm yet again).

now it is clear, that adding about 150-200 € for g-sync monitors was robbing the users.

I would call it self-robbing.

What does that mean? NV didn't promise anything on VRR support over HDMI yet. It's possible that Turing will end up being HDMI 2.1 compatible and in that case they may enable adaptive sync over HDMI on Turing but it's more likely that we'll have to wait for the next gen GPUs to get HDMI 2.1 outputs.

Which is why there's a chance of NV enabling HDMI VRR over 2.0 in the future as HDMI Forum has officially allowed to implement some 2.1 specifications in 2.0 devices and VRR is among these.

With only 12 out of 400 adaptive sync displays passing NV's Gsync compatibility tests, it's clear that it's the opposite really.

NVIDIA has in the past added new HDMI features through drivers, ie. they added certain HDMI 2.0 features to HDMI 1.4 cards, like 4:2:0 support. Basically, things that didn't require hardware changes. So its quite feasible that they support HDMI 2.1 VRR on HDMI 2.0 cards, but only on screens which support official HDMI 2.1 VRR as well, and not some out-of-spec AMD Freesync HDMI variant.

I'm very interested to know if other non-Nvidia certified freesync monitors work well with this driver. Almost all of the 12 certified monitors have TN panels with a res of 1080p. I would like a 27" or above IPS freesync monitor with 1440p res (ultrawide or not).

Hope they make it work on hdmi 2.0 Iv the RTX2080 from Msi that has hdmi 2.0 and the Amd monitor im saving for also has hdmi 2.0 (xg258q)

You don't need anything, this monitor is already officially Gsync compatible (over DisplayPort input, of course): https://www.asus.com/Monitors/ROG-Strix-XG258Q/
