Not even g-sync supports DVI. Me thinks due to the bandwidth, DVI won't be getting support.


Still nice to see the lower end of the market getting Freesync.

Just to clarify but you need a AMD video card for a free sync monitor and a Nvidia card for a G sync monitor is that right? If that is the case I like my monitors to last a good amount of time and I upgrade my graphics cards more often than my display. So I don't like the idea of tying into one brand like this.

That is correct. If you want the benefits of freesync or g-sync, then you will have to make the compromise. Freesync is arguably a better alternative though due to it being a standard and Intel is jumping onboard too.

Awesome price point, just has a small range for it to operate, but at the price it is you can't complain. People in this market probably don't have an high end GPU anyways

ahem, think again. I had my trifire 290x setup connected to a 1080p 60hz monitor for a few months

Just taking a stab though all in all, the lower end is actually beginning to look quite good. Even the 950 and 960 can achieve some nice frame rates (though locked to G-sync)

They are slightly weak cards imo(relative to price segments). At the same price point a 380 is faster than a 960. Pair a 380 with this AOC Freesync monitor and you have an awesome cheap gaming rig.

The main point I was trying to get across is that the lower end of the market doesnt mean super weak cards anymore.

Given a choice between Freesync and G-Sync and considering the price disparity, I'm gonna go with FreeSync every time.

If NVIDIA wants to have us adapt to G-Sync, they shouldn't jack us extra money for our monitors.
