Nvidia G-SYNC: A New gaming experience seen on the ASUS SWIFT PG278Q Display

Our Final Thoughts

The Nvidia technologies meant to improve your gaming experience have come down a long road over so many years but with G-SYNC I really feel like they have done something that simply changes the game completely and yes that pun was intended.

G-SYNC smooths the games to a level I cannot describe and simple words like amazing just don’t seem to deliver the true feeling I have for this as it really does change the way you see your game. I truly do feel that this adds a new level to the idea of game immersion, this takes it from being a concept to being really possible as so many of the minor ticks you have within a game are now gone with a plug and play monitor solution.

The technology does awesome but one thing to keep in mind is there is a cost factor such as the display I used to test this which honestly is one awesome piece of hardware with 1440p at 144Hz capable and 1ms response times but it also is 700 dollars which means it will be tough for some to swallow.

The other thing to consider is that G-SYNC is a Nvidia technology so you have to be running an Nvidia GPU to use it and well I can understand that as they need the control over the hardware/software parts to ensure the proper experience.

Overall G-SYNC is something you need to see to believe and I hope Nvidia starts having G-SYNC live Demos in stores as that’s the only way anyone can truly understand what G-SYNC has to offer and what it does for your gaming experience.

Do note that more monitors are starting to arrive with G-SYNC technology and even 4K so prices should start to drop and follow suit.

Pros: Cons
  • Changes the way you experience games
  • Amazing smoothness
  • Plug and play (it just works)
  • Need to see to understand
  • Monitor price is a bit high so far.
  • Only works on Nvidia GPUs

Razer Blade 15 Base Edition (2021)

2020 will go down as a horrible year for getting hold of new graphics card. I still know people who ordered the new Nvidia Series 30 graphics card at launch in September 2020 and still have not been able to receive it. One avenue to get a new Series 30-card might be to go the laptop route instead as it is much easier to get hold of those. Nvidia recently released their RTX 3060, RTX 3070 and RTX 3080-GPU’s for laptop and today I am testing the Razer Blade 15 Base Edition that comes with a Intel i7-10750H, a 15” 165 Hz QHD-screen and a RTX 3070.
