What is Adaptive Sync

1. On windows display settings it says that the monitor is 200 Hz and on the monitor settings it says "H: 224 kHz." I'm not sure why they would advertise this as a 144 Hz monitor.

 

2: So which card do I get because it only says adaptive sync on the box.

Further research shows that this monitor on retail stores like Amazon is called a Freesync monitor, so nope your 1050t doesnt allow adaptive sync with it. If you have to upgrade to take advantage of that 200Hz refresh rate in competitive games like Overwatch, you'll need something like a Vega 56. Forget AAA games at 200fps, even 2080ti in most cases only goes to 144fps.

 

Also the Singaporean site of this monitor claims it to be a 200Hz monitor while other countries like the UK says it's 144Hz. Maybe those dealing with the website aren't careful enough.

So I got the Acer XZ350CU and I expected it to be 144 hz, but it was 200 hz and I expected it to be free sync but it was adaptive sync. I don't really know much about monitors but is that the same thing? If not, what brand of graphics card do I need to use it and how? Thanks!

1. Just because maximum vertical frequency is 200kHz doesnt make the refresh rate 200Hz

 

2. Both Gsync and Freesync are types of adaptive sync

FreeSync is AMD's implementation of adaptive sync from the DisplayPort standard.  NVIDIA doesn't implement adaptive sync per DisplayPort standard. G-Sync is its own thing. So if you want to use the monitor with adaptive sync, it has to be with an AMD GPU that supports it.

How would I make this work if I do switch my gra[hics card to an AMD one? (I have a 1050 ti)
