How to turn on Nvidia G-Sync?

NVIDIA G-Sync enables the monitor and GPU to synchronize, providing smooth, tear-free gaming experiences. The display mirrors every frame produced by the GPU, and the variable refresh rate guarantees that the image remains undistorted during gameplay.

Activating a G-Sync display is not instantaneous upon connecting it to the graphics card’s output. It requires a minor setup, but fortunately, if you have previously installed the drivers for your NVIDIA GPU, no further software installation is necessary.

How to enable G-Sync on your PC?

The first thing you need to do is make sure you enable the G-Sync setting on your PC.

  • Right-click on your desktop or click on the Nvidia logo from the icons in the bottom right to select NVIDIA Control Panel.
  • Expand the monitor element in the sidebar.
  • Click Configure G-Sync.
  • Check the box next to Turn on G-Sync.
  • Then choose whether you want G-Sync to be enabled for full screen only or full screen and windowed modes.
  • How to Use G-Sync in Your PC Games

    To utilize G-Sync for gaming, ensure your monitor is set as the primary display when using multiple monitors.

    In the same settings window, select “Set Up Multiple Displays.” Verify that the G-Sync monitor is correctly positioned and designated as the primary display.

    To set this as your home screen, follow these steps: Open the Windows Settings app, click on System, and then select the checkbox for the desired screen. Scroll down and tick the box labeled “Make this my main display.”

    With these settings, your gameplay will be smooth and free of screen tearing. It’s really that straightforward!

    NVIDIA G-Sync is compatible with top-tier graphics cards. However, for optimal performance, it’s advisable to pair it with a robust graphics card and a G-Sync-compatible monitor.
