I need help deciding

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So I am deciding between the RTX 2060 or the 5700. The RTX has tay tracing of course and it is about $30 cheaper but would require me to get a more expensive monitor with g sync. The 5700 is slightly better, but it more expensive,no ray tracing, but it also comes with a game and free 3 month Xbox game pass, and the 5700 would also allow me to get a cheaper monitor because free sync is just inherently cheaper.

Thanks

No, it wouldn't. As of the 10## series you can use a freesync monitor with G-Sync enabled. This works on the large majority of monitors.

Apparently I am ignorant to this. 

 

What is the difference between G-Sync enabled w/ a Free Sync monitor and pure G-Sync?

 

I have it running on my ViewSonic and I have no issues.

Gsync Displays have a Hardware Module that sync the Displays Hz with the FPS the GPU is sending. No Freesync Display can do that. I dont say Freesync is bad, but its not Gsync and it never will be.

Interesting. So essentially is a difference of hardware vs software syncing? 

 

Will anyone honestly notice this... especially for the ~$150 GSync tax?

You can definitely see the difference, Linus did do a video in the Nvidia testing facility. Probably not a 150$ differnce for most people. I would spend the extra 30 on the 5700 and go with a freesync.

All i can say is that Gsync is the best Solution i bought in 15 Years. Its another Level of Gaming and i never regreted the extra 150$.

If you spend so much Money on a Display, the one thing you stare at all the time, why dont just go the full way and buy the best possible?

Gsync has a range of 30 to 144 fps and Freesync 35 to 75 fps.
