    "Burty was obviously using the figures quoted as an example..."
    Probably the most non technical example used in a technical discussion.

    "unless you are of the opinion that the graphics card renders at an unwavering 100 fps."
    Read: G-Sync is not static at ANY refresh rate
    AKA, the monitor displays the frames as they are ready from the graphics card frame buffer using the G-Sync module which replaces the traditional scaler.

    No, that award goes to JC17.


    Not sure why or how the topic changed to current 120Hz monitors in a discussion about G-Sync, but I'll bite, because I'm a post booster.

    I also know many gamers/youtubers that will not go back to 60Hz monitors. I don't know why you think because you see no difference that no one else will. Unless you play at the absolute lowest settings, you will ALWAYS have stuttering, lag and tearing. It may not be all that noticeable to you, but to a lot of people it is.

    Now let us tackle this post boosting thing. First, I didn't know I wasn't allowed to reply to people quoting my comments, and second, weren't you the guy that was trying to convince me to buy/like BF4 over CoD in a thread just a couple weeks ago? Yea it was you, blablablaRyder lol.

    If anyone with a brain is reading this, this blablablaRyder guy made it his mission to try to convince me that CoD is a really bad game with a bad game engine, simply because I said I wasn't going to buy BF4, which was the title of the thread.

    lol... and I'm the post booster...

    wow... Just wow... I was simply using the figures bugejakurt was using as an example, it's painful to see you cannot fathom such a concept... and if we froze time at exactly when his graphics card was rendering a scene in a game at 100fps then yes, his screen would be refreshing at 100Hz plain and simple.

    So you are actively proud that you're posting stuff about CoD on a thread titled "Who is buying BF4"?
    I was also on that thread and you came into it shouting about CoD, your nothing more than a Forum Troll.

    Well said Burty117

    Your a clear forum troll trying to boost your post count, if we cut all your 2-4 posts you put on every reply and made them into one reply, you would lose a third of your posts. Its called Multi-Commenting in one post, its quite easy.

    Oh, and you mean JC713, he is not a post booster, he responds one time and responds each time after other people have instead of putting 3 or 4 different posts with one quote on each.

    Anyways, G-Sync having separate modules for the monitors without it built in will be nice. I am getting curious as to seeing this in action (Meaning with my own eyes more than a video).

    I can't see how separate modules would work though? since it requires replacing the scalar so it can directly output to the screen? Thus having control of its refresh rate? However it could happen one day since it uses DisplayPort maybe monitors could become "G-Sync Compatible" and it just means it has a direct port for a separate G-Sync Modules to then be plugged in? Who knows.

    Either way I am greatly anticipating the launch of the screens themselves so I can get a hands on with this, I really hope next year they release a screen with a higher res than 1080p though, They said G-Sync can handle "upto" 4K res but do many 1440p/1600p panels have a higher refresh rate than 60Hz? My Qnix I use does when overclocked (96Hz) so I guess it's possible they could make it standard?

    Having a 3D monitor I have never really been bothered about the above. I always use vsync cause I hate the tearing but cause I can sync at 120hz meaning my games can play at 120fps I don't feel I'm loosing out.

    In addition if many ppl are still using 59/60hz monitors then stop getting exited about this because it suggest you can't afford better anyways and aint going to buy this otherwise you would already have bought a higher hz screen. The g-sync is still limited just cause you maybe able to output 1000fps does't mean you are going to get 1000hz.

    Wow, what a horrible attitude, I have a 60Hz screen, I can happily afford a G-Sync screen thank you very much, and you still get stuttering even at 120Hz with V-sync enabled as the moment the frame rate drops below 120fps it drops to the next stable v-sync rate (depending if your tripled buffered or not).

    Anyway, I have been speaking to a source who reckons he can get me a G-Sync screen (or 3) in my hands hopefully next week. I have a GTX 780, the other 2 screens is going to someone who has a 780ti and a 770, lets find out if G-Sync is really as good as they say, we all use 60Hz screens at various resolutions, no idea what the spec of the screens are yet until next week though.

    Yeah sorry I must have been in a foul mood that morning.
