G-SYNC Do-It-Yourself Upgrade Kits Now Available from Nvidia

January 15th, 2014 · 4 Comments · General 3D News

Nvidia has made available the G-SYNC DIY Upgrade kits for the ASUS VG248QE monitor available in their store, unfortunately they can be ordered only by people living in the US or Canada (as previously announced). The kit is being sold for $199 USD and you need to already have the monitor available in order to upgrade it to support the new G-SYNC technology. According to Nvidia the installation process should take approximately 30 minutes and it essentially covers the complete replacement of the LCD driver board and the power supply that the ASUS VG248QE uses with the ones included in the Upgrade kit.

    Is there any word just yet on what this will do for 3d vision? Better 3d performance is the only reason why I would pick one of these up.

    I wouldn’t call this an upgrade kit. This is like constructing the whole monitor from scratch. You have to disassemble it, and then repeat the whole assembly procedure which poses a risk.

    Yea.. I really don’t like the risk on all this. Im really uncertain your saving much money by doing this unless reselling your old display isn’t an option.

    I would like to try that kit but i live in Europe so i really don’t know how to get that kit :(

    I have a question by the way, basically the benefit on upgrading that monitor will be the zero-latency togheter with no stutter and tearing, that is nice.

    A v-sync without the need of triple buffering and with no lag or artifacts like stutter and tearing.

    The question is, as i want to use the lightboost in 2d mode, the monitor need to be v-synched in order to 3dvision (and lightboost) to work, so i’m asking myself if the zero-latency g-sync improvement will be available also in 3d (or 2d+lighboost) or not, cause it sound to me technically impossible. does anyone has more info on this?

    Maybe there is an option to activate backlight strobing that will benefint from g-sync with the upgraded monitor?

    I’ve got this monitor mainly for the 2d lightboost so if i will not get any improvement using g-sync with lightboost turned on i find this g-sync upgrade quite useless.
