Blur Buster's G-SYNC 101 Series Discussion

Talk about NVIDIA G-SYNC, a variable refresh rate (VRR) technology. G-SYNC eliminates stutters, tearing, and reduces input lag. List of G-SYNC Monitors.

How normal is it to have flickering outside of the G-Sync range on G-Sync compatible monitors?

I just went from an old monitor with a G-Sync module to one that's just compatible. The former had 0 flickering over 5+ years, the latter flickers like crazy outside of the VRR range (VA).
Model?
Samsung Odyssey G7 32".

Okay, so what do you mean by "outside of the VRR range" exactly? Do you mean when the framerate is above the refresh rate, or in the LFC range, both? With G-SYNC Compatible on, off or both?

What I can say is, minor flicker is expected with very low frame/refresh rates during loading screens, etc, even on a native G-SYNC display, but it sounds like you may be experiencing it in a different context.
