Cannot enable G-Sync on my FreeSync monitor

Post by Feevercz » 14 Mar 2019, 08:55

Hello guys,
I am completelly new here and I am also an owner of 144Hz monitor, but I never researched on this topic.
I am also strugling with my PC specs to even hit 144+ FPS in some games.

Right now I am trying to optimize my performance for Apex legends, without tempering with the videoconfig files I could hit 80-120FPs.
For me personally it is best so far to lock my FPS to 75, so I dont have any FPS spikes.

Anyway to get back to the original topic, this is my PC:
i5-7600K
MSI GTX 970 4G (3,5G -.- )
16GB RAM

144Hz monitor Samsung C24FG73FQU

This monitor has a FreeSync option, it is conected via DP cable.
When I turn the FreeSync on in the monitor options, I still dont have the G-Sync option in NVCP.
I have the latest NVidia drivers, also tried several guides on the internet.
Since this is probably the closest community that knows something about this issue I come to you.

Please excuse my grammar and thank you for some insight in advance.

Correct, "G-SYNC Compatible" mode for FreeSync monitors only supports "GeForce 10 series (Pascal) and above," unfortunately:
