Nvidia hopes to eliminate screen tear with new G-Sync monitors

Tech endorsed by Epic and DICE, hardware due for sale early next year

Nvidia is hoping to eliminate screen-tearing, input lag and stutter with a new range of G-Sync gaming monitors.

The new technology syncs the monitor to the output of the PC GPU rather than the other way around. Gaming PCs will need a Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti GPU or better, alongside the G-Sync enabled monitor.

During a recent presentation, the tech was endorsed by developers such as John Carmack, Mark Rein, Johan Andersson and Tim Sweeney, who called it, "the biggest leap forward in gaming monitors since we went from standard definition to high-def."

G-Sync modules will be available before the end of the year for the hardware modding community, with off-the-shelf monitors due early next year in a variety of resolutions up to 4K.
