Best free-sync monitors on Amazon India

Screen tearing is a phenomenon that occurs when the number of frames per second that your graphics card outputs do not match your monitor’s refresh rate. The monitor tries to display multiple frames simultaneously, which causes a visual artefact or a ‘tear’ that detracts from your viewing enjoyment. There’s also ‘stuttering’, where your graphics card cannot keep up with your monitor’s refresh rate and makes a game laggy. FreeSync technology in monitors remedies both these problems by automatically adjusting your monitor’s refresh rate to sync with the number of frames your GPU produces, thereby eliminating any tears. Here are some monitors available on Amazon with FreeSync technology built-in so that your viewing experience remains artefact free. These monitors were chosen on the basis of their specifications and features.

The monitor also features an adaptive-sync technology that should eliminate screen tearing and choppy frame rates. The monitor is certified as G-SYNC compatible, which means if fair for you to expect a seamless, tear-free gaming experience by enabling VRR (variable refresh rate) by default. With an 0.5-ms response time, the monitor should deliver smooth gameplay. Additionally, the ASUS Extreme Low Motion Blur (ELMB) technology should further reduce ghosting and motion blur. The GameFast input technology in this monitor minimises input lag and provides a much faster motion delivery from the end device to the monitor. It is also equipped with the ASUS-exclusive GamePlus hotkey for in-game enhancements along with the GameVisuals feature that optimizes the visuals of the games.
