How To Turn Off G-Sync

Do you want to know how to turn off G-Sync Feature? You might want to disable G-Sync because you are experiencing input lag and motion blurs on a specific game. To turn off G-Sync you will need to perform several simple steps.

G-Sync technology is an adaptive sync technology developed by Nvidia to give players smoother gaming experience. G-Sync’s display technology is to do away with screen tearing and the need for Vertical Sync software alternatives. G-Sync prevents screen tearing by allowing a video display’s refresh rate to adjust to the frame rate of the output device (graphics card/integrated graphics) rather than the output device adapting to the display, which could traditionally be refreshed halfway through the process of an output frame, resulting in screen tears, or two or more frames being shown at once. A device needs to have an exclusive G-Sync module that Nvidia sells in order to use G-Sync.
