G-Sync lays bare the underlying problems of wildly variable gameplay frame-rates in PC gaming and highlights the problems of inconsistent input latency. If the hardware issue is now fixed, what's required now are software solutions to make the most of this exceptional technology.
Regardless, we think there are still enough other factors at play in the world of PC graphics that right now G-Sync should be only one part of your considerations in what graphics card to buy right now. At the very least, wait until some more monitors with G-Sync hit the market before taking the plunge.
That’s obviously the biggest issue with what we have here today - it only works with NVIDIA hardware. For die hard NVIDIA fans, I can absolutely see a G-Sync monitor as being a worthy investment. You might just want to wait for some more displays to hit the market first.
Obviously from Nvidia’s perspective, that’s a huge positive, but it also could limit multi-display gaming. Still, the technology is in its early stages, and all reports are that it can improve the overall gaming experience, at least some of the time. That’s a decent starting place for any new technology - we’ll see where it goes from here.
