Nvidia just released new drivers supported today that enables Gsyc on their 2019 OLEDs with VRR. I'm hoping Samsung does the same soon, as I'm running an RTX 2080/Ryzen 3900x on a Aurous x570 master on my 2018 Q9FN. However I'm not overly optimistic as they haven't even released an updated firmware fixing the reboot issue on these 2018 models. While I don't have that issue anymore, it somehow fixed itself after a bad freeze and lock up. A new firmware addressing that issue should be a top priority as many people are having random reboots with the 2018 models. I'll hold off on buying an LG C9 for now, It's down to $1700 on Newegg...extemely tempting given it's half the price I paid for my Q9FN just 1.5 years ago and a better display in everyway beside peak brightness. I may even wait until 2020 to see what LG has to offer. However if Samsung doesn't release a g sync compatitable firmware update as well as a fix for the reboot issue I am forever done with Samsung.
I join the requests. There is a NU8000 TV, which also supports VRR just like other models of 2018, just like the models of 2019! But for some reason, they still have not received the update. I bought this TV also because it was originally promoted as a TV that is capable of working with HDMI Forum VRR, so I am waiting for the firmware update along with other users of the Samsung TV lineup from 2018!

I can confirm that with Nvidias latest drivers gsync is detected when the Q8FN is set to freesync ultimate mode. However gsync does not work correctly. The screen just flashes on and off when gsync is enabled while playing any game. Please fix this Samsung!
I can confirm that my Samsung q8fn also is detected by the nvidia drivers when enabling freesync ultimate on the tv, but the screens flickers badly and is unusable. Please Samsung look into this request for adding compatibility with nvidia graphics cards for 2018+ tv's It would be a huge boost for your products and would make it an ideal choice for gamers .
It can also be activated on Q6FN, although G-Sync doesnt work properly; screen flickers very very badly in games.
It would be nice if Samsung will add real support for G-Sync, otherwise next TV will be from competition
I was planning on getting a q60 or70 tomorrow until i started researching this issue and came across this thread. I had a thought though, has anyone tried using a Displayport to HDMI adapter or cord?
This message is for xbox and Amd PC Gamers gamers interested in a potential solution get vrr/Freesync working with their samsung tv as well as getting 7.1/ dolby atmos sound to a non hdmi 2.1 sound system.
Apparently the company HD Fury figured out a way to extract full audio from hdmi signals transmitting VRR/Freesync but they won't release a device unless they see a demand for it. I urge anyone that is interested in this solution to PM HDFury or visit the discussion threads in the avs forum for their integral 2 or vertex devices. They also have a channel on discord, HDFury. It would be great to have a solution that allows all of these technologies to finally work together. Thanks for your help.

I can confirm that as of Dec 14th 2019, Samsung still has not fixed this. I have a 2080 super and a 55" Q70r which are both running the latest software from their respective vendors. When you enable VRR on the TV (either standard or utlimate), the Nvidia driver picks up on it and gives you the option of enabling g-sync compatible mode for the display. However, once it's enabled, the screen will just turn black every time the frame rate fluxuates. Given that this works on some of the newer LG models, it looks like this is purely an issue on Samsung's side. I hope they're reaching out to Nvidia behind the scenes to have them help get this implemented correctly, because it could definitely impact some of my future purchasing decisions if they don't.
theres false information on the RTINGS pages …
I was one of the victims, bought 65Q90R 11 days ago after I saw RTINGS Q90R G-SYNC article...
I think company pay RTINGS for fake review because not having g-sync will really hurt them in comparison to LG.
RTINGS : Update 11/28/2019: Although not officially supported by NVIDIA, the Q90R works with NVIDIA’s new G-SYNC compatible mode when connected to a recent NVIDIA graphics card. Unlike officially supported TVs, like the LG C9, this must be manually enabled from the NVIDIA Control Center.
