    Where to find fast sync? In F1 2016 it ignores G-Sync too...

    You can enable Fast Sync under the Vsync drop down menu. Since G-Sync doesn't cap your framerate, if it goes over your monitor's refresh it won't work

    So you say activated G-Sync does not cap fps at maximum refreshrate???

    :no:

    G-Sync is to match your monitor's refreshrate to fps to create a smooth stutter free experience

    Yeah thats totally clear to me. But when the display cant run 180hz so it has to cap at 60?! If thats wrong than i would need G-Sync for less than 60fps and V-Sync for more than 60fps.

    That is correct. G-Sync is only effective if it's under your refreshrate. If you can always get over the refreshrate 100% of the time only VSync itself can be buttery smooth too

    I've actually spent quite some time on it this summer, testing out whether I can flash the EDID on the panel with the 30 pin eDP connection but I can't even get it to read yet. Now I'm back to school, I guess I'll have to work on it again during my Christmas break since all my stuff is in another country. In the mean time I guess you guys can help research on flashing the EDID on a 30pin eDP panel with a RT809F too :vbthumbsup:

    I assume you already tried flashing via normal routes and were unsuccessful?

    This article includes a script to flash the edid info on linux via i2ctools

    I recently ordered a GL502VS-WS71 and I've read conflicting reports about whether or not this model has 120hz, wonder if the panel mentioned in the op will even be compatible with this make.

    I've read a bunch of sites on how to software flash the EDID, but none of them worked for me, probably because Asus doesn't want anything software to mess up the screen so it's write protected. I've been trying hardware flashing by using a RT809F with the help of reputable member t456
