    Will nVidia-Powered G-SYNC be supported for UT4?

    Will nVidia-Powered G-SYNC Mode be available for UT4? I ask this because BenQ is releasing their XL2420G model in the next 2 to 3 weeks (so they say). All the info about how G-SYNC works with your monitor is located here:

    http://gaming.benq.com/gaming-monitor/xl2420g

    Now I personally spoke to somebody at EVGA who actually saw a side-by-side comparison with using a monitor running at 144Hz/1ms/50 to 60FPS with GPUs (like the new 980 GTX) and he said that even at 40 FPS utilizing G-SYNC, their was a night and day difference in its smoothness and flow; even at lower frame rates. He also mentioned that there is not a lot out there right now to compare anything to because of how new this is. Although very few companies are using this technology right now (because of how new this is), it's growing fast, as other monitor companies (i.e.; Asus and others) are seeing the huge benefits of this smooth, immediate animated gameplay. I hope that this game will be enabled to utilize G-SYNC as most nVidia cards (600 series and above) are using G-SYNC anyway. I also hope someone in your programming department at Epic sees this post and goes after utilizing this technology. Here's a brief description of how this technology works according to BenQ:

    "By synchronizing the XL2420G’s display refresh rates to the GPU in a GeForce GTX-powered PC, the G-SYNC Mode enables images to appear instantly the moment they are rendered. The low latency effectively eliminates screen tearing, and minimizes display stutter and input lag – frame rate artifacts commonly seen in high-motion gaming. Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) is also at your disposal to smooth the way for a near-zero motion blur performance. Ultimately, with NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology, an unprecedented buttery smooth, ultra-responsive gameplay to victory is all you’ll get."

    Obviously, because this is coming from BenQ, it sounds of the sales pitch, but since I got this source of information straight from somebody that works at EVGA and not BenQ, and saw this thing in action, then there is some legitimacy here to go after using this technology. I hope someone in the development dept. at Epic replies to this post here soon with an answer, thank you...

    PS - I did see some kind of article that talked a bit about it (here):

    http://www.tomshardware.com/news/nvi...ing,24756.html

    but again, I haven't seen any monitors that have that built yet and to have a DIY kit that Asus sells (for $200) that you have to physically install yourself (found here):

    I might as well wait for the BenQ XL2420G to come out and not have to worry about doing it myself. Also, it'll be cheaper and the BenQ monitor is better with Low Blue Light and Flicker-free Technology. Looking forward to this new monitor to be coming out soon...

    I'm sitting playing UT4 as we speak right now on nvidia Gsync. The Asus ROG Swift PG278Q monitor supports it.

    Unless you limit your game to 60fps, gsync will work fine (i cap my fps at 149 to cater for my 144hz max refresh, if i drop frames, gsync will take care of the refresh rate on the fly to ensure refresh/framerate are in sync and my screen doesn't tear) It's not an option that would be set by a game as such. It's down to monitor / gpu sync.

      Thanks for letting me know. I do understand that it's about how the monitor will work with the GPU. About he PG278Q. That's a 27" monitor and for me to purchase 3 of those would be very expensive and I would have to have at least 2 (if not 3) 980 GTX's running those size monitors. I already have 3 x 30" monitors side by side by side setup and my peripheral vision doesn't extend that far. I have to physically turn my head. Using 3 x 24" monitors is perfect for my needs and I'm thinking it's more than enough. It would be nice if they made 1920x1200 G-SYNC gaming monitors, but that's not happening since the industry has veered away from 1920x1200 gaming type monitors.

      You do have a nice monitor, but I feel getting 3 of those for a side by side by side setup would (again) be too wide for my eyes to catch everything. Plus, purchasing that kind of set up would cost me around $3,500-$4,200. Something that to me is not worth it as I'm just looking to spend no more than $1,850 for this kind of set up. That's more than enough for my wallet anyway. Thanks for the info on this…

        If you got three of those with the cards to support it, i'd envy you.

          I'd envy myself too - LOL!!! - but that's not happenin' as that is complete overkill and (to me) a waste of money. Unless you're a cocker spaniel, your eyes can't see that far apart anyway if you're sitting 24 inches away from 3 x 27" screens. That's why using 3 x 24" monitors is a good sweet spot for wide screen gaming; especially when playing FPS' like UT. Too bad they don't have a 1920x1200 G-SYNC 24" monitor out there or else I'd get them. Anyhoo, getting this type of setup (1920x1080 x 3) is more than enough (and just so happens I found a vid with UT using that setup):

          https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=R478dUrpaVg

          Thought this might interest you; I have a Hackintosh set up here:

          http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...e-hackinbeast/

          and I'm currently using 3 x 30" 2560x1600 screens using 2 x 580 GTX 3GB Hydro Coppers w/ 1 x nVidia C2070 6GB GPU. So I already spent my money on a great system that took me months to put together and it was completely worth it as I use if for work. but the OTHER machine (found here):

          http://www.insanelymac.com/forum/top...on-lime-twist/

          Now THAT system is what I'm going to be using for my Windoze 8.1 setup. I'll still have Mac OS X 10.8.2 running, but at least I can switch between two operating systems and I'll have one 2TB backup for Mac OS X and the other 2TB for Windoze gaming. By the way, let me know what you think of my both my systems and again, thanks for the input from earlier, later…

            Hello,

            If someone here has already some experience with GSYNC, I would be very happy if you can have a look at the following:

            I am playing UT4 with the Asus RoG G751 JY G SYNC (GTX 980m) and I noticed the following (let's take the CTF Face map, all settings to HIGH):

            - FPS with G SYNC OFF: between 100 - 150fps depending on the scene

            - FPS with G SYNC OFF but V SYNC ON: 75fps steady (refresh rate of the display of my laptop)

            - FPS with G SYNC ON: 55 - 65fpsbut never reaching 75, even when looking at a wall or setting graphics to low.

            Is this normal ? I would have expect a steady 75 FPS with GSYNC on.

            Many thanks for your help,
            Kalki

              NVIDIA released 3 days ago a hotfix addressing performance issues with GSYNC: http://nvidia.custhelp.com/app/answe...-driver-358.59

              It solved my problem.
