  2. The monitor needs to have the G-Sync chip inside it.

    Hello

    This is my first post on your most appreciated forms.

    I have a VG 248 LCD Monitor from Asus it's first generation g-sync monitor with no pre-installed chip, I'm planning to buy a g-sync laptop that I can connect it to it by converting the DVI on the monitor to miniDP on the laptop. My question is, will the G-Sync chip (That's in the Laptop) work with the 144hz g-sync monitor that I have with no problems; or will the g-sync chip has to be inside the monitor in order for it to process data?

    Thank you all
    Musa

    Unless the monitor has the G-Sync module built in. It will not work. so unless you bought the Gsync kit and installed it, you wont have GSync.

    Also in order to get full 144hz working over DVI, you will need a powered active DVI to mDP/DP converter.

    Nope none of the cheap ones will work, since they are all passive. At best you might get a single link adapter. You need a dual link active and powered.
    For a friend of mine who was trying the same thing, he bought one of these :

    https://www.amazon.com/StarTech-com...&sr=8-12&keywords=dvi+d+to+displayport+active
    https://www.amazon.com/Accell-B087B...ncoding=UTF8&refRID=M9DWFFFKEVCQK34EBXJF&th=1

    But , those are rather expensive IMO (and have a high failure rate) and defeat the purpose of having a $250 144hz monitor, might as well add another $50 and go for a monitor that has a dedicated display port.

    If you have a display port on the monitor then you dont need one of those adapters. Just get a DP to mini DP cable and you are good to go for full 144hz. Or a Simple DP to DP hooked up to a mDP to DP adapter (mDP has the exact same amount of pins , just a miniaturized)
