G-Sync compatible monitors without actual Nvidia silicon chip inside are slowly gaining traction among the gamers who prefer fast paced shooting games with no tearing and stuttering experience for affordable price. Mostly, monitors with 144Hz refresh rate and 1ms response time features are eligible to get G-Sync compatibility approval from Nvidia but some new monitors from AOC are still not approved yet at a time of writing.
