If it actually DOES have that glow around it, though, I’m going to get very freaked out.

Nvidia have wheeled out industry legend John Carmack, Epic’s Tim Sweeney, and Frostbite’s Johan Andersson to discuss the relative merits of their new G-SYNC technology.

If you’re a PC gamer with any real knowledge of tech, you probably won’t need to hear these three talking about how useful G-SYNC is. In case you haven’t heard of it, though: it’s a monitor module that synchronises the monitor with the GPU. This means two things: you won’t have to use V-Sync, so your framerate won’t be regularly dropping below the standard, and it’ll eliminate screen-tearing because frames won’t be drawn faster than they can be displayed.

In short: less framerate drops, less artifacting, and this supposedly won’t increase the cost of the monitor. If it does what’s promised, I will be picking one of these monitors up as soon as I can.
