    This is a long known bug in the Nvidia Driver / Windows Integration.
    Basically, you say that after a restart, G-SYNC works in exclusive fullscreen but not in window & borderless fullscreen?

    If this is the case, open Task Manager, find dwm.exe process (Desktop Window Manager) and kill it. Don't worry it will end the process and Windows will spawn a new one.
    Voila, Gsync works in window mode again.

    Hope it helps,

    it won't even be 5%, to get that you have to get all the way up into the 2933+ range. 2400->2666 might yield about 1.5% if that. Unless the game really depends on memory, it literally makes no difference. I get wanting it, it says it clearly on the box my A51M came in, but its the least of the worries for an A51M owner in my opinion.

    Not sure it matters to you, but the Chi Mei panel looks according to most people better than the other two panels. Not saying thats a justification for not maintaining Gsync, but its something. Also, AFAIK, any panel currently listed as Gsync for Area 51M orders is using the Chi Mei.

    Yes I really like mine especially once it’s calibrated it’s a very nice panel.

    Good point - calibration is a must these days for everything it seems, I use a trusty Spyder5 Pro personally.

    I’m in Europe. Panels may differ from place to place. Or not. We’ll see. ;-)

    Either way is ok, but I rather have 1.5.0 with G-sync.

    I'm from the UK, I have the Chi Mei panel. I think its the only one that has the integrated eyesafe technology built in that Dell promotes.

    I know, we’re in agreement there. Not tempted to go beyond 1.5.0 for +266 MHz.
