Back at CES 2019, NVIDIA announced that it would be bringing G-Sync support to monitors that support the AdaptiveSync protocol. These monitors fall under the G-Sync Compatible umbrella, part of NVIDIA's effort to widen access to its pricey G-Sync technology. 

While traditional G-Sync monitors require OEMs to implement a proprietary module that added extra cost to manufacturing, the G-Sync Compatible program would remove the need to buy a G-Sync branded monitor to enjoy some benefits of the technology. A G-Sync Compatible display would not have a G-Sync module, but it would still be able to deliver some sort of variable refresh rate (VRR) experience because of the Adaptive Sync protocol. 

However, to be certified as G-Sync Compatible, a display needs to adhere to certain standards as well, which means that not all FreeSync monitors on the market will work. Back in January, NVIDIA says it tested over 400 models, but only 12 passed its tests. 

In a nutshell, the company is looking for a monitor that doesn't show blanking, pulsing, flickering, ghosting or other artifacts when implementing VRR technology. In addition, the display needs to be able to support a VRR range with a ratio of at least 2.4:1, for example 60Hz to 144Hz, and enable VRR by default. 

Here's a growing list of the G-Sync Compatible monitors available today:
