NVIDIA wants to improve gaming experience by introducing the G-Sync Compatible standard. At the same time, the company aims to grow its G-Sync display ecosystem by testing monitors that are able to “deliver a baseline Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) experience” on GeForce GTX 20- and GTX 10-series graphics cards. In addition, NVIDIA wants to do all the work for gamers by activating their VRR settings automatically to complement their gaming experience.

According to NVIDIA, their in-house professional testing laboratory has put over 400 monitors to the test and 12 monitors have been certified as G-Sync Compatible. Their efforts will continue and the list of compatible monitors will be updated regularly. Besides the G-Sync Compatible standard, there’s also the introduction of G-Sync Ultimate and G-Sync. Only NVIDIA G-Sync Ultimate and G-Sync certified monitors will be recommended for immersive gaming experience, while G-Sync compatible ones are recommended for entry VRR experience.

As for monitors that have yet to be validated under this new display ecosystem, NVIDIA says there will be a new NVIDIA Control Panel option that will allow the user to test-drive the G-Sync feature and the results will vary widely. Therefore, NVIDIA recommends the purchase of G-Sync Compatible certified monitors to ensure best gaming experience with supported GeForce GPUs.
