G-Sync Monitors

Eliminate tearing and stuttering with a G-SYNC monitor

Screen-tearing and stuttering can put a damper on any gaming experience. It frustrates casual gamers and causes competitive gamers to miss crucial opportunities. NVIDIA® G-SYNC ® is an adaptive synchronization technology that uses a variable refresh rate to synchronize the monitor and the computer's graphics card. With a G-SYNC monitor, players enjoy smooth and rich visuals with no tearing, stuttering, or input lag.

As a world leader in monitors, Dell offers Alienware G-SYNC monitors in a range of sizes and resolutions. When casual and competitive players want the best gaming monitor they can find, they turn to Alienware displays from Dell.

How a G-SYNC monitor improves gameplay

A G-SYNC monitor solves a common problem with gaming and video displays. Graphics or video cards produce images at a specific rate called frames per second or fps. Monitors redraw the screen with new images at a certain rate as well – this is the refresh rate and is measured refreshes per second, known as Hertz (HZ).

When a graphics or video card produces frames faster than the monitor can refresh, users will often see two images on the screen simultaneously, in effect known as "screen tearing." The images typically don't align and are separated by a horizontal or vertical line.

A G-SYNC monitor resolves this issue by matching the monitor's refresh rate with the game's frame rate. G-SYNC monitors have a variable refresh rate that allows images to be drawn as soon as the graphics card renders them, reducing input lag. G-SYNC works in both G-SYNC monitors and G-SYNC compatible monitors.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is NVIDIA G-SYNC technology?
NVIDIA G-SYNC is a display technology that delivers faster and smoother gaming experiences. G-SYNC synchronizes the display refresh rates in a monitor to the frame rates in the GPU.

This eliminates screen tearing while also minimizing display stutter and input lag. The result is a visual experience where objects appear sharper, scenes appear instantly, and gameplay is incredibly smooth. In other words, G-SYNC monitors offer a superior and more seamless gaming experience.

What is a G-SYNC monitor?
A G-SYNC monitor is a computer display designed for gaming that uses or is compatible with NVIDIA G-SYNC technology. These monitors also help to reduce screen tearing during gameplay.

What is screen tearing?
Screen tearing is a visual distortion on a computer monitor caused when the GPU can't keep up with the monitor's refresh rate. When this happens, part of a screen is redrawn in one frame and the remainder is redrawn in another, producing an image on the screen that looks as if parts of the image aren't aligned.

What is a G-SYNC monitor vs. a FreeSync monitor?
A G-SYNC monitor uses NVIDIA G-SYNC to synchronize the monitor and GPU. A FreeSync monitor uses AMD FreeSync™ technology to accomplish the same task.
