List of G-SYNC Monitors

First published March 12th, 2014

gsync-logoThis list features current and upcoming monitors that supports NVIDIA G-SYNC. This is a subset of the Official List of 120Hz Monitors, plus upcoming models.
For G-SYNC, you need one of the supported GPUs.

List of Released G-SYNC Displays

These are G-SYNC gaming monitors already available. All also support a LightBoost sequel called Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB), a strobe backlight that eliminates motion blur.

BENQ XL2420G 24″ 1920×1080 144Hz $$
Philips 272G5DYEB 27″ 1920×1080 144Hz $$$
AOC g2460Pg (Europe) 24″ 1920×1080 144Hz $$
Acer XB270H 27″ 1920×1080 144Hz $$$
Acer XB280HK (4K Ultra HD) 28″ 3840×2160 60Hz $$$$
ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q 27″ 2560×1440 144Hz $$$$

Upcoming Future G-SYNC Displays

Several companies, including ASUS, BENQ, Acer, Philips, ViewSonic, AOC, have announced they are on-board with G-SYNC later in 2014. These are models announced so far:

Monitor Size Resolution Max Refresh Rate
ViewSonic VG2401mh 24″ 1920×1080 144Hz
BENQ XL2720G 27″ 1920×1080 144Hz

Past G-SYNC Upgrades

These were G-SYNC Upgrades sold for the ASUS VG248QE monitor. Most of these are now sold out, but some units may still be available.

    What about adding panel type in the charts ? :)

      I think they all have a TN panel.

      • For now, but there are likely some IPS panels coming too.

        That said, I hope ULMB (LightBoost sequel / strobing) comes to IPS because otherwise hugely prefer a strobed TN monitor than a non-strobed IPS monitor, as Photos: 60Hz vs 120Hz vs LightBoost as current IPS panels essentially go “VHS-quality blurry” during fast motion. Hopefully IPS is becoming ready for strobe backlights soon enough.

        The ASUS ROG PG278Q uses a superior 8-bit TN panel, which will result in better colors than the others.

          I hope for strobbed IPS too (well, gsync/freesync + strobbed as I like both, and even better if they can work together one day), that’s why I suggested adding panel type (knowing current planned ones are only TN :( ).

          I agree IPS is blurry on motion (got a fs2333 and find bluriness to be the n°1 flaw by far for this monitor), hence why I wondered if IPS would have had limitations making it less subject to benefit from strobbing, and that would explain eizo prefering VA over IPS for their 1st strobbed monitor (despite their previous “gaming” monitor was an IPS).

          Would it be for an other reason than the great constrast this VA panel offers ? This is intriguing me especially since this panel is also used to make the 5k$ pro version for sattelite imaging that I’ve read was requiring a clear distinction of many nuance of grays those sattelite pictures have. And when you see the gamma shift issues the “gamer” version of this monitor has… (but on the other hand high contrast ratio makes sense regarding dictinction of nuance of gray. And those VA panels can be selected to keep those with almost no gamma shift for the pro version. But there is the black crush issue too to consider…).

          Any opinion on this Mark ? Why this VA panel for the FG2421 and not an IPS ? Would a strobbed IPS be that no as good as a strobbed VA/TN regarding motion clarity ?

          • The reason why IPS can’t do strobed well (yet), is due to pixel response not fast enough to allow pixel transitions (GtG) to fit nearly completely in the dark period between backlight strobes. You only want to flash a strobe backlight only on fully refreshed frames.

            To understand better, see high speed videos of LCD refresh. An IPS monitor still resembles the old 2007 LCD monitor, which bleeds refreshes into each other too much. So a strobe backlight never ever gets a chance to flash a fully-refreshed frame, because of this perpetual ghosting.

            This is also why 3D shutter glasses displays have often been TN or VA displays, rather than IPS displays. LCD panels were finally able to be good enough for 3D and/or strobing recently, approximately 2010-ish. Before this time, refreshes on all LCD panels were always perpetually ghosting into each other.

            P.S. Feel free to post questions at (requires registering for separate account)!

    The BENQ XL2720G is a 27″ monitor, not 24 😉

    Do you think it is possible for a OLED G-sync Monitor?
