Starting off, FreeSync basically allows AMD graphics cards and APUs to control the refresh rate of an attached monitor. If the GPU can’t output at the display’s refresh rate, you’ll notice lags or stuttering. With the FreeSync mode, the monitor refreshes the screen in-sync with the current game’s refresh rate. However, if you’re not aware of how to Enable G-Sync on a FreeSync Monitor then check out this informative guide.
V-Sync stands for Vertical Sync which is the graphical technology that’s responsible for synchronizing the frame rate of a game to the refresh rate of a monitor. It basically happens quite randomly with games that utilize refresh rates of 60 frames per second or higher. PC gamers can get smoother frames per second without a screen tearing issue in their games.
What is G-Sync?
G-Sync is Nvidia’s technology for leveling the similar refresh rate of the gaming monitor with the actual refresh rate of the game itself. Therefore, you don’t need to worry about the refresh rate adjustments while gaming with the Nvidia G-Sync.

How to Enable G-Sync on a FreeSync Monitor
Keep in mind that you’ll need to update your Nvidia graphics drivers first on your PC. Once the driver is updated to the latest version, you’ll be good to go. Also, make sure that both of your Nvidia graphics card and monitor are connected via the DisplayPort.
Additionally, you should check whether the variable refresh rate is enabled on your monitor’s settings or not. Now, if your monitor is already G-Sync compatible then it’ll be automatically enabled. However, if not already enabled, follow the steps below to enable it.
- Launch the Nvidia Control Panel > Go to the Display: Set up G-SYNC.
- Check ‘Enable G-SYNC Compatible’.
- Now, select your preferred options and choose your connected monitor.
- Then check ‘Enable settings for the selected display model’.
- Save changes and try running your game.
