Nvidia G-Sync integrated monitors coming Q2 2014

Monitors with G-Sync modules installed, Nvidia's chip for computer displays to improve visual performance in video games, will be available from manufacturers in Q2 2014, CEO Jen-Hsun Huang announced during the company's 2014 CES presentation today.

Monitor manufacturers who will release G-Sync integrated products in Q2 2014 include Acer, AOC, ASUS, BEnQ, Philps and ViewSonic. The module-equipped displays will be available in 24- and 27-inch sizes. Unveiled in October, the G-Sync module can be built into a monitor or installed onto an existing display. Nvidia sent modules to professional modders late last year to install them into Asus VG248QE monitors.

G-Sync exists to remove latency and image stuttering caused by playing with vertical synchronization (VSync) on and screen tearing caused by playing with VSync off. Where the GPU usually syncs with a monitor, with G-Sync the display only refreshes after the GPU has finished rendering a frame, avoiding the screen tearing, stuttering and input lag.
