Still Limited Availability of Nvidia G-Sync DIY Upgrade Modules

Nvidia has promised that by the end of the year they will have the G-Sync DIY Upgrade modules available to the most eager enthusiasts that want to get their hands on the technology as early as possible and they kind of delivered on that promise. The G-Sync DIY upgrade module is intended for owners of ASUS VG248QE monitors that want to upgrade their displays or for people that are interested in buying already upgraded monitors with the module installed by professionals. And I’m saying that they kind of delivered on their promise, because currently there are 4 partners of Nvidia that supposedly offer either an upgrade services to make your ASUS VG248QE monitor G-Sync ready or to sell you an already upgraded monitor. The problem is that all of these four companies are US-based and while with some you might be able to get an overseas delivery, the shipment of a $500 US dollars monitor would end up quite expensive when you add all the taxes on top of the price.

The four Nvidia G-Sync partners that are already announced by Nvidia are:
Falcon Northwest
MAINGEAR
DigitalStorm
Overlord Computer

The first two: Falcon Northwest and MAINGEAR are only selling new computers where you can add a G-Sync modified ASUS VG248QE monitor along with your PC for about $500 US or a bit more. The other two companies DigitalStorm and Overlord Computer can either sell you a new G-Sync modified monitor only for about $500 US or a bit less or modify your own monitor (you need to send it to them) for $299 US or a bit less. The option for purchasing the DIY module only directly and installing it yourself if you are a good technical guy is still not available. Hopefully in January 2014 we are going to see better availability of the G-Sync DIY upgrade modules including availability not only in US, so people that live in Europe and other countries could also have access of the technology and the benefits it offers. Also in the first quarter of the new year we are probably going to see announcements for new G-Sync-enabled monitors, so you might want to wait a bit more and get one of those now anyway…

Maingear Builds a 3D Vision Surround Simulator for Nvidia

June 25th, 2010 · 2 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


A video demonstrating an interesting project done by Maingear for Nvidia – a 3D Vision Surround racing simulator setup using a water cooled PC with two Fermi cards, 3x 120Hz monitors and a seat with “vibration” (they’ve probably used some parts of the system already done for a previous project with a single display). Looks quite nice, kind of Pimp My Ride MTV style, but I would’ve liked a bit more technical details too and also to see some footage of the building process, maybe some trouble they’ve had and how they overcame them etc. We can of course all drool over the system or start building our own version, and I’m almost ready with the water cooled computer… finally… :P
