Ultrawide monitors are gaining popularity with It's multi-tasking benefits, however recently It's also growing amongst the gamers as more and more games announced ultrawide support

In this article, we will go over what G-Sync and FreeSync are, and then we will review some of the best ultrawide curved gaming monitors on the market.

In many games, the performance is the key and the performance comes from the player reacting as fast as possible to the situation that is happening in the game.

The reaction time isn't just players reaction, unfortunately all the latency in the system is part of this reaction time, and if the part's don't work together perfectly It will end up increasing this reaction time.

The hardware and the gaming monitor is extremely crucial for the gaming setup, however, It is very important to work these parts to be work in sync so that they know each others capabilities and work in harmony to provide the lowest latency as possible.

Variable Refresh Rate (VRR) and G-Sync

That is where the G-Sync technology from NVdia comes in to the play, It basically let's GPU (Graphics Processing Unit) and the gaming monitor work in sync, hence the name G-Sync.

During a game, graphical card of your computer or the laptop works by sending frames to the monitor to display them. The frequency of these frames are what is called the refresh rate.

If your graphics card is powerful, It can send more frames per second to the monitor. And If your monitor is powerful or newer, It can display more frames per second.

Why Do You Need G-Sync For Ultrawide Gaming

These are all great things, however this is exactly where the problem starts. Most of the time, these two parts of the system, gaming monitor and the graphics card, will have different refresh rates.

When the refresh rates of the monitor and frame per second of the graphics card don't match visible issues such as tearing and stuttering. To solve this problem, Nvdia introduce G-Sync which adjusts the refresh rate so that gpu and the display match.
