Why do they compare Nvidia to Freesync 48Hz, when G-sync works from 30Hz

Actually PCPER showed when the PG278Q came out that G-Sync works as low as 1Hz.

Freesync can work below 48Hz, but I believe it comes from the drivers and not the panel itself. Also, Freesync can go as low as 40Hz, but the monitor has to support it.

If a FreeSync display has LFC (Low Framerate Compensation) support it also goes down to 1Hz. AMD doesn't say it does because sub 30FPS is a terrible experience regardless.

Yeah 40FPS is my bottom limit, I will literally buy a new GPU if I go below that regardless of monitor tech

I think mine is 40 too. If it goes below that it's like hell.

I think the 56 will be the winner here rather than the 64 this is pure speculation though I may be wrong but I think more people will go for the 56 if it competes well with the 1070 most gamers don't play at bonkers high resolutions anyway. this will be interesting to see how it pans out

Well I think it'll compete with a 1070... but it cost the same. Also consumes more power. So I don't think it will impress.
