Report: Nvidia G-Sync Exclusive to Asus Until Q3 2014

If you're reading this, you've probably heard of this thing called 'the Internet.' Now this thing we call the Internet can spread information, rumors even, but not all of it may be true.

The rumor, coming from the sometimes-questionable WCCF, is that Nvidia's new G-Sync tech will be exclusive to Asus monitors until the end of Q3 2014. G-Sync is a technology that fixes screen tearing in Kepler-based games. Of course, that G-Sync is first launching on Asus monitors we already knew, but it seems that Nvidia could be sticking to Asus for its product development for a while. After that, G-Sync will be coming to other manufacturers as well, including Benq, Viewsonic, and Philips.

Considering that this is still a rumor, be sure to take it with a grain of salt. Considering that Nvidia wants G-Sync to be widely adopted, we're not sure what to believe.

Not sure what G-Sync is? Check out our article here on Nvidia G-Sync.

    Personally I don't have a problem with this as I prefer my Asus screens. On the other hand, if you want a new technology to be adopted into the tech world, you don't want to make it exclusive...

    Actually, its the other way around......like many technologies such as physX, mantle,etc many customers have been reluctant to adopt such "exclusive technologies"..Asus are the only one to get on board the g-sync technology.....other competitors in the monitor markets want to wait out and see..if this technology really makes a significant change in the user-gaming experience.......the markets are tight and no company would want to increase the price of their monitors on g-sync unless it delivers as promised.......my guess, it will fade away......just like 3d monitors, physX.etc..........

    They should license this tech to everybody and advance the state of the art.
