Yes Nvidia is finally supporting G-sync through HDMI with a driver update later this year for VRR TV's and monitors. Read Here https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/lg-gsync-compatible-hdmi-big-screen-gaming/
What are the chances of the samsung 2018-2019 VRR TV's working with this. I'm asking because i have the 2018 Q8FN which supports VRR. Would it be possible for you guys to release a firmware update to help make this work properly like LG is doing?
Solved! Go to Solution.
I hope this rumor is true. I have a q8fn and I'm in the same boat as everyone else. Gsync is detected in the nvidia control panel when I enebale freesync on the TV but the screen flickers and the display is not usable. I hope you fix this problem. Otherwise my next purchase will be with LG or another
Apparentlt samsung are woring on getting certified
brand that puts their customers first.
I am really disappointed with my Samsung QLED TVs. I have three.
The picture is great, but the software is terrible. The last FW update on my living room QLED broke HDR with my windows PC, and there is no way to roll back and no response from Samsung.
This lack of g-sync is just another reason to avoid Samsung TVs in future.
Looking forward to OLED
Agreed. One would think Samsung is trying to hold on to customers, I don't know how serious they are.
I purchased a Q70r last winter thinking it would be good for general gaming, some HDR, stuff like that. I knew that freesync and VRR wasn't compatible with my PC ( 2080 super ), but the word at the time was major companies were making this possible... and that was true except for Samsung.
Oh and the TV likes to turn itself on... which is fun.
This is really disappointing from Samsung, it's been over a year now and every other display seems to be capable of doing this but not with Samsung. I have the Q70R which i purchased last year with the intention of using it for gaming eventually. They really got me on the marketing that this TV was ideal for gaming which is clearly isn't true now. I really do hope they get manage to fix this with a driver update
there is a solution to enable G-SYNC Compatible temporarily until it is 100% official
