Nowadays, there are more and more monitor choices, with different technologies and different functions. But did you know that there are now several technologies such as Gsync, Freesync and V-Sync. Then what is the difference between the three technologies?
The three technologies basically function to display variable refresh rates for monitors and VGAs to be stable and balanced. G-Sync technology is a technology developed by Nvidia so it can only be used on VGAs from Nvidia.
There is actually no difference between G-Sync and Freesync technology and there may be only a few of the differences. Both represent the Adaptive Sync standard and are designed for 1.2A displayports.
While V-Sync technology has actually been around for a while, V-Sync can lower the FPS (Frame per Second) speed by enabling it in games, but it’s just that the display of the game is not as smooth as the display in G-Sync and Freesync technology.
V-Sync technology is more indicated for tube or CRT monitors, and not for LCD layers, while Freesync and G Sync technologies are more designed for LCD monitors. When VSync is enabled it gets worse if the FPS is lowered. G-Sync and Freesync will have a slight image difference of about 3-5% of the image resolution.
The purpose of this technology is to make the synchronization between the monitor and VGA more stable and produce a dynamic rate and displayed on the monitor with Fir Refresh Rate, and make the image display smoother. Adaptive Sync like this also affects power consumption systems such as desktop screens that lower the video frame rate. And the monitor will have a fixed refresh rate.
Now you know the three V-Sync, G Sync, and Freesync and their uses too? It is certain that the price of monitors with G Sync technology is more expensive because the technology is still new, and must be compatible with Nvidia VGAs because basically, Nvidia developed the system.
