NVIDIA Rebrands G-SYNC HDR as G-SYNC Ultimate at CES 2019

07 January 2019 3

Last year at CES, NVIDIA launched its G-SYNC HDR program. This boasted of a fluid experience with G-SYNC variable frame-rate refresh rates at 144 Hz and higher, 1000 nits of brightness and a 95 per cent DCI-P3 colour gamut. This year at CES, NVIDIA has chosen to rebrand its G-SYNC HDR displays as G-SYNC Ultimate. However, since then, only a few monitors have supported it. The ASUS ROG Swift PG27UQ and Acer Predator X27 are among the few to implement the technology.

At present, NVIDIA has three G-SYNC tiers, including G-SYNC tiers: G-SYNC Ultimate, G-SYNC and G-SYNC Compatible. G-SYNC Compatible is actually for particular qualifying AMD FreeSync monitors. The fact that NVIDIA is trying to keep a tier of its G-SYNC technology open for support on certain AMD FreeSync monitors reveals how NVIDIA is slowly attempting to make its technology more universally available. This, in a way, may steer consumers in the direction of an NVIDIA GPU rather than its AMD equivalent.

NVIDIA is definitely driving a hard game and attempting to establish itself as a serious contender in terms of display technology. Can AMD come back with a bang as it did in the CPU market, taking the lead over Intel in the fourth quarter of 2018? Let us know what you think in the comments section below!
