  1. Thanks! I think I'll be ok not having G-Sync then. Appreciate all the info.
  2. How can I use V-Sync or Fast Sync with the built-in monitor? (I'm just learning about this whole syncing issue, so sorry if the answer to this question is very simple and seems like maybe I should already know it.)
  3. Ok, well, I appreciate the responses. Still, I feel no closer to forming a strong enough opinion to purchase or look to a different device. G-Sync = reduced battery time and apparently some amount of input lag; whether that lag is noticeable I suspect will be different for each person. Lack of G-Sync = better battery life, but the potential for screen tearing. This laptop has a 144Hz display, though, so unless it gets above that for FPS, I shouldn't notice screen tearing, right?
  4. Senka, one of the major features espoused by Linus in an early video about this technology was the lack of lag: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fghQh0Y4oA4&t=2m57s
  5. I'm in the market for a new laptop. I'm liking what I see with the MSI GS75, except, it seems to lack G-Sync in the built-in screen. Having seen Nvidia's video (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oT8f_1oRsLU) about screen tearing, frame stutters, V-Sync, and how G-Sync magically fixes it all, and how I've never had a laptop powerful enough to output even 30 FPS in most games, I'm concerned that this lack of G-Sync will result in perceptible/noticeable issues in the video quality of games like PUBG. I travel for a living so carrying around an external (G-Sync compatible) screen is not an option. Is this really something I need to be concerned about?
