Nvidia's G-Sync monitor tech makes PC games look smooth as silk

Quote:
At CES 2014, Nvidia is demonstrating an interesting new display technology that it first announced back in October. Called G-Sync, itís a circuit board that display manufacturers mount inside the monitors they sellóit canít be added to an existing display. The board eliminates annoying visual artifacts such as tearing and stuttering by synchronizing the displayís refresh rate to the video cardís output.

Todayís video displays have a fixed refresh rate, such as 60-, 120-, or more cycles per second. Thatís perfectly fine when youíre watching a video, because its frames arrive at the display in lockstep with the displayís refresh rate. But when youíre playing a game, the video card outputs each frame as soon as itís rendered. So its refresh rate is highly variable, because some scenes take longer to render than others.

I think I'd like to see one in person. Tearing is kind of annoying, but I don't know how a variable framerate would look. Most likely clearly better, but it could possibly seem odd.
