Overlord Selling G-SYNC Early, Plus New Video

Overlord Computer, a maker of overclockable monitors, are making available a limited number of G-SYNC monitors for early sale.

ASUS does not yet have G-SYNC, so Overlord is modifying ASUS VG248QE in-house with G-SYNC Upgrade boards. This makes the prices slightly higher, as an Early Access Program.

For standalone G-SYNC Upgrade boards, keep tuned for an announcement today. Tuesday morning. Also, NVIDIA just released a new G-SYNC video
[Full HD, 1080p 60fps, 200MB].

Do g-sync modules have to be made for a specific monitor? Like the BenQ XL2420TE has the same panel as the VG248QE, but different other things. Would a module be compatible or would a module ever be made to work with the XL2420TE?

I said yes to your first question but it means no to your second since you ask 2 opposite questions in your post. Just wanted to clarify 😛

Yes, since they replace a part of your monitor circuit they need to be made specifically for that model, hence why all we see is VG248QE atm.
From what i understand they will add support for more monitor sometime next year and some monitor will be sold with it already integrated.
It is safe to assume that all model that will be sold with gsync onboard should be upgradeable if a non gsync version exist since all they need to do is sell the gsync replacement board for that specific model.
For now just wait and see how things go. Price will most likely go down over time and availability on different models will increase as well.
If you already have a VG248QE like me though you might be able to jump on the bandwagon before other ppl o if you have an old monitor you could get the one from Overlord Comp but once again the best approach is to wait til early next year at least imo.

wow thats like double what i paid for mine . . . and more if you add taxes and shipping to that close to 480 price tag . . .
Hope this doesnt mean the g sync board will cost as much as the monitor itself , i paid mine around 240 with taxes and shipping (Canadian dollar too :P). . .
Oh well, waiting and hoping today’s announcement will be good lol
