Nvidia now support G-Sync Surround
When the first G-Sync compatible monitors were made available there were two major issues which prevented Nvidia Surround G-Sync Setups from being possible. Firstly there was the fact that each monitor required a separate DisplayPort connection, which given that Nvidia GPUs only had 1 Display Port connection each meant that Tri-SLI setups were required to run games in a surround setup. Which meant that Users had to deal with all the issues associated with Tri-SLI
Secondly and more importantly to that was drivers, which until now didn't support G-Sync surround, regardless of whether or not you had the required inputs.
Now with the release of the Nvidia 344.16 WHQL drivers, and the GTX 900 series it has not just been made possible, but also much easier.
The 344.16 WQHL driver enables the use of several G-Sync panels in surround while using their G-Sync features, which is great as G-Sync is known to give very noticeable improvements when your framerate fluctuates, which is a common thing to happen in games (especially in Surround configurations).
The release of Nvidia's GTX 980 also heralds a great step forward for Nvidia, offering 3 Display Port connections on a Single GPU, meaning that those who wish to use a G-Sync Surround setup will not be required to buy 3 separate GPUs.
Now Nvidia have made it easy, and not just possible for their Surround fans to enjoy the benefits of G-Sync.
