Wow, ASUS have immediately updated the VG258's product page listing GSync compatibility. This might be the perfect monitor for me and as a coincidence, it's my birthday soon, soooo :P


The part about surround confuses me a little bit: to enable GSync on ALL 3 monitors, they have to be the exact same, right? That doesn't mean, however, that I can only have GSync on on all or none, right? Meaning I can get that ASUS one and keep my other two oldschool Acers and GSync will still work on the ASUS, right? I doubt that I'd have to get an entire setup of new monitors, but I just wanted to get clearance.

long ago, if you had 3 identical monitors, with G sync enabled, it only applied to your main screen. Didnt matter if all three were Gsync monitors.
To expand on this, they added the Gsync surround feature which I believe allows the experience across all three

So to answer your question. If your main screen is Gsync and your two others are not, then you get Gsync on your main screen only.

Exactly what I've been looking for, thank you!

Funnily enough, on Amazon the 27" variant costs 10€ less than the 25.5" model.
