List of FreeSync Monitors that are Compatible with G-Sync (UPDATED)

Share this:

Back at CES 2019, when NVIDIA announced the new RTX 2060 graphics card, NVIDIA CEO Jensen Huang also announced support for “G-Sync compatible monitors”. This means that you can now enable G-Sync feature even if you are using a FreeSync monitor, provided that you have a Pascal or Turing-based graphics card. That’s right, this support will only work for graphics card from GTX 10 series to the latest RTX 20 series; and you will need the latest GeForce Driver 417.71 (up). Also, NVIDIA has initially provided a list of 12 FreeSync monitors that are certified and fully works with G-Sync without any problems. Since then, these FreeSync monitors have been selling like hot cakes. Check out the list of Freesync monitors that are compatible with G-Sync below.

UPDATE 7: Added Acer XB273U, Acer XB323U GX and Asus VG279QL1A.
UPDATE 6: Added a few G-Sync compatible monitors that were not available previously
UPDATE 5: Added several new G-Sync compatible monitors including the LG B9, C9 and E9 4K OLED smart TVs
UPDATE 4: NVIDIA added 3 new G-Sync compatible monitors: LG 34GL750, HP 25mx, and HP Omen X 25f
UPDATE 3: NVIDIA added the following monitors: Dell S2419HGF, HP 25x and LG 27GL850.
UPDATE 2: NVIDIA has added more G-Sync compatible monitors in their list. Recently, NVIDIA certified 7 more FreeSync monitors (24 in total) to be compatible with G-Sync. A driver update will be released very soon. Check out the monitors below.
UPDATE: As of today, NVIDIA added five FreeSync monitors that are certified to be G-Sync compatible. The five monitors are the Asus VG278Q, Asus VG258,Acer ED273A, Acer XF250Q C and the BenQ Zowie XL2540-B. You can check out the table below for more details.

I was a little bit disappointed when I saw the initial list since most are based on a TN panel. True that they are fast, they have a very low response time, but they don’t have good viewing angles and colors are not that great compared to IPS or VA panel.

UPDATE Nov. 2019: There are now several G-Sync compatible monitors that features IPS panel, and 4K OLED Smart TV as well.

The Acer Nitro XV273K seems like the “better” monitor compared to the other 11 FreeSync monitor. It’s a 4K UHD display, IPS panel and it even supports HDR. Unfortunately, this monitor seems to be plague with (serious) backlight bleed issues. Perhaps an issue with early version of this monitor?

The Acer XZ321Q looks like a good option as well; where the BenQ XL2740 looks like a really good monitor for eSports and fast FPS games.

BenQ XL2740 Freesync Monitor Compatible with G-Sync-02

If you are currently using one of the monitors listed above, once the driver version 417.71 has been installed, G-Sync feature should be automatically enable. Those who are using FreeSync monitors that are not listed above / non-certified may also enable G-Sync manually via the NVIDIA control panel.

Do note that those monitors that are non-certified may encounter varying issues, like flickering, blurring and the likes. However, there are several users who have confirmed that their non-certified FreeSync monitor was working well with G-Sync enabled.

Non-Certified FreeSync Monitors But Still Works with G-Sync

The list of certified FreeSync monitors compatible with G-Sync seems to be pretty underwhelming, due to the fact there are literally a lot of FreeSync monitors available in the market today compared to G-Sync monitors.

UPDATE: MSI has listed some of their FreeSync monitors that are compatible with G-Sync as well. However, take note though that NVIDIA has not officially included MSI’s monitors on their list of certified G-Sync compatible monitors. I have the MSI Optix MPG27CQ, it’s not certified, but when I enable G-sync, it does seem to work. I only tried it with Battlefield V, haven’t tested it thoroughly though.

Users from NVIDIA Subreddit have created a Google sheet where they share their experiences with the current FreeSync monitors that they have. We see some non-certified FreeSync monitors on that list are reported to work just fine with G-Sync. Other monitors have issues, while other monitors needed to be “tweaked” a little bit just to get G-Sync working with their FreeSync monitors. Can you check out the sheet here.

I love computers since I was a kid. I’m always fascinated with new technology, especially in the PC world. Many years ago, I was curious if the reviews I read were true and real. So, why not test them myself and share my first-hand experience? And thus, here we are. Thanks for reading!

  1. I have a Samsung U28E510 UHD 28″ Monitor and it has Freesync but I use a Nvidea GTX1070TI 8 gig card I activate the Free sync on the Monitor and it does something(Screen goes black then comes back on after 2 seconds and I can’t tell if my monitor being a freesync is Nvidia Gsync compatible….. would there be a noticeable difference?

    • Hi Robert, make sure you have installed the latest NVIDIA drivers. Go to NVIDIA control panel. Under the Display menu, there should be a “Set up G-Sync” option. You will be able to enable G-Sync from there. If that option is not available, it means Freesync is not enabled on your monitor (assuming it has Freesync). I checked the specs of your monitor and it’s a 4K 60Hz right? I haven’t tried a 60Hz Freesync, but with a 144Hz Freesync it’s very easy to tell the difference because by only moving the mouse pointer or dragging a window across the desktop the movement should be smooth. Try playing some games and see if it has eliminated tearing and/or stuttering.

    • I’m 95% positive. Yes, you need DisplayPort. I think GSync is limited to DisplayPort only.
      It’s much better than HDMI and has higher bandwidth.
      To be honest, I can’t remember the last time I used an HDMI interface. Some HDMI interface do not support higher than 60Hz.
      What monitor are you using and what graphics card?

    • You could use it and enable G-Sync. But since it’s not a G-Sync certified monitor, it’s not a 100% guarantee that it will work properly or smoothly.
      You might want to check out feeback from owners of this monitor on how G-sync worked for them.

  2. I have a Samsung Curved 23.5 LC24F390FHEXXP LED it has a Free-Sync feature, and im planning to buy a rtx 2060 super next week. would that two compatible? i mean would i be able to use the freesync of my monitor?

    • It has FreeSync but it’s not G-Sync certified. You can use the RTX 2060. You can manually enable G-Sync but I am not sure if it will work perfectly. There’s a reason why some FreeSync monitors are not G-Sync certified. It may work just fine, or it may work but with issues or it may not work at all.

  3. Hey! I just bought a ASUS ROG STRIX XG248Q. I currently have a Gainward GeForce GTX 970 4GB so i got a minidisplayport to displayport connection to get it to work. I’ve just updated my nvidia drivers to the newest but i can’t find the “Set up G-Sync”.
    Do you have any tips to sort this problem out? I don’t really have a clue of what i could do at this point!

    • Hi Tobias, as per NVIDIA’s requirement, you need at least a GeForce GTX 10 series graphics card or better yet their newer RTX cards.
      Perhaps that’s the reason why the G-Sync option isn’t showing up, since you’re using a GTX 9 series card.
      This is a long shot since you didn’t meet the first requirement already, but Freesync should be enabled and your monitor should be running at 240Hz, via DisplayPort.
      If it still doesn’t show up, then GTX 9 series card won’t do.

  4. I bought samsung c27r502 that has freesync and I’m using it with a GTX 1650 super venus. Is my monitor compatible with g sync?

    • The monitor has Freesync, you might be able to enable G-Sync via the NVIDIA control panel. Check it out. I haven’t posted a guide on how to enable G-Sync on FreeSync monitors yet.
      So you’ll have to search for a guide. There’s a lot out there.

  5. Hi, I purchased a AOC C24G2 G Line 2nd Gen (Adaptive Sync) and the “set up G-Sync” in Nvidia control panel is not showing up. My laptop has HDMI but the monitor has DP and HDMI, I tried to purchase a DP to HDMI cable but its still not showing up. I’m thinking if I buy a DP to HDMI adapter instead, will it work? Thanks for your help.

  6. Hello!
    i bought this monitor ASUS VG249Q Full HD 144hz Freesync and Gigabyte Nvidia 3060ti OC PRO
    my cable is DP 1.4

    if you read the specs of monitor you will see this message
    Supports both Adaptive-Sync with NVIDIA GeForce* graphics cards and FreeSync with AMD Radeon graphics cards *Compatible with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series, GTX 16 series, RTX 20 series and newer graphics cards

    i search for my monitor to nvidia site but i can not find it in the support list
    why is it not on the nvidia site?

    do you think the screen will work without any problem?


    • It’s not on NVIDIA’s list of certified freesync monitors compatible with g-sync, but since it has freesync tech I think it will work.
      There are a lot of freesync monitors that are not included in NVIDIA’s certification, but g-sync still works.
      You have both the monitor and the graphics card with you right?
      Why don’t you try it now? G-Sync will not be enable by default. So you will have to manually enable it via NVIDIA control panel.

    • Based on the specs sheet, 1ms is just MBR. While 5ms is its GtG response time
      There are a lot of monitor manufacturers out there that puts a big “1ms” response time on the label, but it’s actually MBR and not GtG.
