With Red Dead Redemption 2 due for PC tomorrow, NVIDIA now offers new GeForce version 441.12 WHQL Windows drivers. In addition to support for the Windows edition of the wild west action/adventure these are also game-ready for the imminent release of Need For Speed Heat. They also add the recently announced G-SYNC support for LG OLED televisions. There's also this post discussing NVIDIA GPU support for RDR2. Here are the complete release notes for the new drivers explaining these also enhance NVIDIA support for Borderlands 3:
Game Ready for Red Dead Redemption 2
The new Game Ready Driver provides the latest performance optimizations, profiles, and bug fixes
for Red Dead Redemption 2. Read up on recommended settings and GPUs for Red Dead
Redemption 2 in our article here. This new driver also includes the latest optimizations for Need
for Speed Heat and Borderlands 3.

New G-SYNC Compatible Monitors
The list of G-SYNC Compatible displays increases to over 55 options with the addition of the LG

I guess you missed this a few weeks ago

Interesting I did miss that. Honestly (and it might be placebo) I could swear turning it on helped in PUBG and Destiny 2 (only games I tried with it) feel slightly more responsive at 144fps.

Not sure what to believe when NVIDIA is claiming improvements with this post: https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/news/geforce-gtx-16-series-super-game-ready-driver/

Make sure you set Nvidia Ultra Low Latency to "on" and the monitor to 144Hz in NVCP also.

I guess you missed this a few weeks ago: 40% Less Input Lag Without AMD Anti-Lag or NVidia Ultra-Low Latency

Whoa! I guess that explains why it is off by default

It's hard to believe with such a huge budget rockstar doesn't have the coding skills to have companions
(from what I've read) or the writing skills to create anything other than, dickish male roles.

Still, I'll be checking it out on Steam in December, if the press is correct about release dates.

Still waiting for Samsung QLED TVs to support G-Sync. Would be a nice addition! Nice to see this over HDMI already though (for LG).

LCD tv's don't have a fast enough pixel response time for GSync cert. OLED's don't have a problem with pixel response.

Also I don't think Samsung has any HDMI 2.1 sets out yet anyways; another requirement. However, Samsung does have Quantum Dot OLED's on the way supposedly. A recent article stated they just dumped a ton of cash into development.

I’ve got a Freesync Ultrawide IPS screen from LG, and it works as smoothly as the G-sync monitor it replaced.


The ghosting is always going to be there a little on IPS screens, it’s the trade off for the vibrant colors and super wide view angles. It’s rarely something I notice unless a game has wildly contrasting lighting and color, and even then it’s minimal.

G-Sync really should have no impact on ghosting since it's just Nvidia's form of VESA Variable Sync. The FreeSync (aka G-Sync Compatible) monitors are just as good from their more narrow sync range of typically 48-144Hz. If anything you're seeing worse ghosting because IPS, even at its best on that new LG, is 5ms pixel refresh average where as the best TN is about 2ms. So even best it's more than twice the ghosting as TN. Also that LG monitor has a terrible 730:1 contrast ratio according to reviews, so that's not going to help grey-to-grey pixels either.

Overall G-Sync Compatible is very good in the monitors that have it. Make sure you set Nvidia Ultra Low Latency to "on" and the monitor to 144Hz in NVCP also.

Anyone here use GSYNC on a FreeSync “compatible” monitor?

I recently tried the LG 27GL850 1440p 144Hz monitor that came out this summer, has a big’ol “GSYNC Compatible” sticker right on the bezel! The image colours, especially the blacks, were very impressive for an IPS panel. The ghosting/responsiveness of screen when using GYSNC, however, was not as good as comparable, full GYSNC monitor. I think the latency difference was subtle, but for me, immediately noticeable in a side-by-side.
