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 the 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 cards from GTX 10 series to the latest RTX 30 series; and you will need the latest GeForce Driver 417.71 (up). Check out the list of Freesync monitors that are compatible with G-Sync below.

UPDATE: It’s been a while since I have updated this list, and to date there are more than 100 monitors that are certified by NVIDIA as G-Sync compatible. Check out the list below.

List of Certified FreeSync Monitors Compatible with NVIDIA G-Sync

Note: We try to be as accurate as possible when collecting the data above. But please double-check since there may be changes or revisions on the monitor. Also, I noticed that the specs listed by retail stores may be slightly different from the manufacturer’s page.

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. However, fast forward to 2021, I can see that there are now more IPS panel on the list. And some of these (gaming) monitors are excellent.

There are also several 4K UHD monitors, (super) ultra-wide and HDR monitors that features FreeSync but are also certified to be G-Sync compatible monitors. A number of eSports-centric monitors are also included in the list above; and even LG’s 4K TV.

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.

  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.

  7. I am thinking of getting an Acer ED320QR. But I have a Laptop with an Nvidia GTX 1650Ti and i wondered if g-sync will work on this amd freesync monitor connected to my laptop.

        • I’m more or less positive that it would work. It’s just that I can’t say “it will work 100%”. I haven’t tested or tried it, nor do I have first-hand experience with that kind of setup. But in theory, it should be okay. Just make sure you install the latest drivers and FreeSync is enabled on the monitor.
          I’m just not sure if the experience will be smooth. GPUs in laptops are not as powerful compared to their desktop counterparts.
          Depending on how graphics intensive the game is, you may need to tone down the graphics settings to high above 60/90fps or 120 fps.
