OMG My Kogan Monitor Works with G-SYNC Flawlessly. How Are Your Monitors Going?

Just wanted to let everyone know my Kogan Freesync monitor works pretty much flawlessly with G-Sync with the new 417.71 drivers today despite it being not being validated

I get no flickering, artifacts or contrast changes in games. Didn't have high hopes for a Kogan monitor working so well but it did and I'm so happy

How is everyone else's freesync monitors going?

    Oh nice! Will have to remember to update my nVidia drivers. Have a Kogan freesync monitor too, hope it's the same panel/panel manufacturer as your screen!

      mine is the kogan 27" 144hz curved gaming monitor. I wish you lots of luck :D

        Thanks! I think mine's a 30" ultrawide 75Hz, hopefully those specs are still okay. I don't think my graphics card can pump out more than 75fps on higher settings anyway. Fingers crossed, I'll post back once I've tried it out.

    Report back in a few weeks and let us know if the results are the same! But that is awesome news!

      Scratch that. In some games the cursor goes screwy, disappearing and blinking.

    Couldn't get my AOC Q3279VWFD8 to work

  •  

    How much was the monitor and what size?

    That sounds great to know a good value monitor paid off well.

  •  

    Got my CFG70 27" Samsung VA Panel FreeSync-Monitor enabled. Had to enable Freesync on the monitor first then the 'Set-up G-SYNC' option popped up on the Nvidia Control Panel. No idea if it works as it should haha..

      This is confusing, because g-sync is supposed to be a dedicated chip.

        Marketing FUD. Just like the claim only 8 freesync monitors can be certified compatible with gsync. To be fair there are certain restrictions to the Nvidia gsync standard which improve the quality of the experience.

  •  

    Will the G Sync option still show if the monitor is connected by HDMI 2.2? Also if I get a USB C to DP will G Sync still work?

    •  

      no right now it only works over displayport. Wont work if you are adapting usb c to DP but it might if you are doing DP to usb c.

      •  

        My laptop only has HDMI 2.2 | Mini Display | USB C Thunderbolt X2
        Would Mini DP work for G Sync using an adapter?

        •  

          My guess is unlikely. Geforce Drivers requires the display to be outputted from a DP if it isnt the Gsync setting doesnt even appear in Nvidia Settings. You might have to wait they should be Gsync over hdmi implementing it over HDMI in the future.

        •  

          You could try a thunderbolt to displayport adapter

  •  

    My Samsung LC27F591 works flawlessly with a 1070 GTX like it always did with my Radeon 290. Yay for Nvidia dropping the gsync tax.

  •  

    do you guys recommend the AOC G2460PF or ViewSonic XG2401? both work with gsync now but idk which to get, i can get them for the same price 2nd hand and they look so similar it's hard to choose ;/

  •  

    can i clarify, are you guys using a display port adapter?

  •  

    Nice, I'm also thinking of buying a kogan monitor to pair with my Nvidia card. Too bad the 27” 1440p 144hz is at $500 now. $400 would be solid. There was a guy selling a used one on gumtree for $380 firm, doh!

    Another one worth considering is the 34" ultrawide 1440p 100hz, but I can't find anyone who owns that to confirm whether g-sync works or not.

    Hi mate

    How do you feel about the monitor generally - good quality/any issues etc?

    Thanks a lot

    •  

      Also, how do you know GSync is working? Can you tell somehow?

    • +1 vote

      I'm incredibly happy with the monitor. zero issues so far and no quality issues with the panel or the monitor itself.

      I got it for $315 and that was through the roof in value. The current price is $429 which is still very good for the monitor but you'll want to step back for a moment and consider your options such as other monitors like the Acer KG271UA ($479) and decide if you want the deeper blacks and better colours of the kogan monitor (VA) or the lower response time of the Acer (TN).

      On the topic of G-Sync
      1.Once you have enabled G-Sync go to the Nvidia Control Panel and select Display > G-SYNC Compatible Indicator >>Reference Image
      2.Once that is enabled you will see this indicator in game that tells you if its working >>Reference Image
      3.If you are further unsure or want something to test out the effects of G-Sync download the G-Sync pendulum test >>Here

        Thanks for the reply mate - really helpful. I bought it today.

        Kogan have a pretty good return policy on their branded stuff - so if I don’t like it I’ll swap it out.

        Out of interest, do you see any advantage in a faster response time?

        • +1 vote

          Personally I don't see much of a difference in response time for any monitor under 10ms. for reference I went from a 3ms samsung monitor to this 5ms kogan monitor and can't feel or see any change in response time. Maybe esports professionals can but I sure can't

          what was a world of difference was definitely going from 60hz refresh rate to 144hz
