Q. visitor asked, Hello. does g sync stresses your gpu more or v sync?

Hello
Nathan R.
good afternoon and welcome to Newegg! can I help you find a gaming monitor?
does g sync stresses your gpu more or v sync?
Nathan R.
overall, neither pushes your gpu too hard.
vsync actually reduces load because it forces your card to sync frames to your monitor's refresh rate
oh
long time ago, when had old gpu. v sync slowed down my gaming experience. Can you explain that?
Nathan R.
vsync does have problems ( it can cause screen tearing and other issues ). You're seeing slowdown from vsync because lets say your gpu is render the game at 90fps and your monitor refreshes at 60hz - vsync throttles fps to 60
Becuase i have gtx 970 right now and the its weird but i dont really care about screen tearing. I just dont want to push my gpu too hard and make it hot that is why i asked.
Nathan R.
You won't be pushing it too hard. If you want to monitor performance, there are lots of great tools out there
oh ic
is benq a good brand? I never heard of it
Nathan R.
BenQ makes really good monitors for a surprisingly affordable price. I personally prefer ASUS displays, but you can't go wrong with BenQ either!
oh ic
thank you
Nathan R.
you're welcome!
thats all my question :-)
