Does Freesync 2 HDR work with an Nvidia GPU on a FreeSync 2 monitor?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I want to buy a Freesync 2 monitor but I have an Nvidia GPU (GTX 1080ti). This is because a Freesync monitor is considerbly cheaper and I'm aware that using a Freesync monitor is now possible with an Nvidia GPU with the new G-Sync compatible feature.


However my question is; can I get the HDR benefits of Freesync 2 (and others) while using the G-Sync compatibility with my Nvidia GTX 1080ti?


And if not specificlly Freesync 2 HDR, will standard HDR work at all in conjunction with G-Sync compatibility on a Freesync 2 monitor?


Some sources say HDR won't work at all alongside G-Sync compatibility on a Freesync 2 monitor while others say it does.


Any clarification will be appreciated.

Freesync is a technology that is designed to help with screen tearing, and, while Nvidia was eager to talk about how much better real G-Sync is than Freesync Compatible for the sake of making their version seem remotely viable, I can't think of any reason why it wouldn't work.

I would look up the monitor you want to get and check if any other users have made any reviews or posts about it. From what I've heard it works pretty nicely.
