How to enable NVIDIA G-Sync
Description: This article will demonstrate how to enable NVIDIA G-Sync on a Windows PC. NVIDIA G-Sync creates a better gaming experience as it eliminates screen tearing and minimizes display stutter and input lag.
- Before beginning, make sure that your monitor supports NVIDIA’s G-Sync technology. A list of supported monitors at the time this article was written can be found at: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/g-sync-monitors/specs/
- Make sure a DisplayPort cable is being used, as G-Sync is only compatible with DisplayPort. It must be a standard DisplayPort cable with no adapters or conversions. HDMI, DVI and VGA are not supported.
- Right click on the desktop background and select NVIDIA Control Panel from the list.
- Under the Display tab on the left side of the NVIDIA Control Panel, choose Set up G-Sync, followed by the Enable G-Sync, G-Sync Compatible checkbox.
- Under the Manage 3D Settings tab on the left side of the NVIDIA Control Panel, make sure Monitor Technology is set to G-SYNC.
- NVIDIA G-Sync is now enabled.
