    In 3DMark or in games? Keep in mind that 3DMark is GPU-bound and runs at very low frame rates, hence is not likely to brush up against this limit.

    Definitely a MUX chip by that wording. I'm surprised they don't even acknowledge it as a feature or allow G-Sync to function.

    It costs them money and it's a desirable feature for Gamers. ASUS made a huge deal about it in their rigs when they adopted it.

    Same thing with my Acer Triton 500, it has the option to switch GPU’s in the bios.
    I actively crossed off a lot of laptops off my list because of no Gsync.

    Smart thinking. Gsync panels have the extra advantage besides better FPS.

    wow i didnt know that G-Sync or no G-Sync would have that much better games performance. Next time I am in the market for a new laptop I will stick to G-Sync only laptops.

    It’s not G-Sync that has better performance, it’s the lack of Optimus.
