G-SYNC Monitors are PWM-Free


Camera-wave photo test on VG248QE GSYNC.

Using the TFTCentral PWM test method, the ASUS VG248QE has become PWM-free through the G-SYNC upgrade. (PWM is pulse-width modulation, is a method of brightness adjustment).

G-SYNC monitors probably needs to be PWM-free in order to prevent variable PWM artifacts from occurring during variable refresh rate operation.

The test findings can be found in this Mark Rejhon post in Blur Busters Forums.

    Makes enough sense, the ROG Swift/PG278Q was confirmed as PWM free outside of ULMB and I guess we can expect similar from other G-sync monitors now 🙂

    Hello CBB,

    did you ask Nvidia to confirm it?

    Also if we switch the mainboard in the Asus- how is the overdrive after that? I assume theres no way to adjust overdrive, once you have replaced the mainboard, right?

    How is the default motion sharpness (without Lightboost etc.) with the G-sync mainboard? I have my overdrive setting in the Asus at 60 or 80, mostly 80. I assume the g-sync equivalent is like the default Asus overdrive at 20 or 40, something around that.
