Ongoing Discussion Nvidia caves, will support g-sync on free-sync monitors

Recommended Posts

I think they realised more people were playing on Freesync monitors than G-Sync. That premium just wasn't worth it when you could save that sort of money or buy a better GPU. As this technology is for below 60FPS basicly.

Now people have even less of a reason to buy an AMD graphics card.

What? Like not paying for a premium feature (cough "ray tracing") when you don't care about it? Its performance will fit the bill for gamer's like me who aren't gaming as a primary hobby. Yes, it's a little late, but, prices could drop, making it more attractive.

Yours is emotional.

Not at all, just pointing out a consumer fact. Were I to be emotional, I would have made some disparaging comments about your intellect or parentage. Note that I did not.

      And if you want help kitting out a computer, use pcpartpicker
      If you want help building a computer, there are loads of videos on newegg and youtube (for instance 
      just go to Youtube and search for "build a gaming computer" and you'll get lots of options to view.)

      I checked just to see how the 2700X fared against the i9-9900K
      This will not dissuade Intel fans. The i9-9900K is faster, by an overall 16%. Of course Intel does single-core better.
      Cost for the 2700X - $280
      Cost for the i9-9900K - $500

      Whilst the 6 core, 12 thread 8700K beats the 2700X in single and quad core performance by about 10%, the 2700X wins on multi-core workloads. PC gaming and desktop performance is generally governed by four or less cores but the 2700X offers unbeatable value for money for workstation users.
      Although the 9900K has around a 16% effective speed advantage over the 2700X, the Ryzen 2700X offers better value for money for most users.

      Pretty interesting how it turned out.
