G-Sync on HP pavilion 690-0073w

HP Recommended
hp pavilion 690-0073w
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

Hi, recently bought this hp pavilion 690-0073w and noticed some screen tearing while playing games. Freesync is turned on in the settings of my Acer CB272 monitor but I don't see the option to turn on Gsync in the Nvidia control panel. Is it possible to enable that somehow or is it disabled because of my monitor?

How do you connect your monitor ? The requirement is

 

         System Requirement: Must support DisplayPort 1.2 directly from the GPU

 

but your machine does not list Display port, only ports from motherboard. Please check again and use the right port.

Honestly, I'm not sure which port it is. I just connected the monitor to the open displayport in the back of the computer tower.

Banhien, his computer has an Nvidia GTX 1660 Ti video card. Also, with an i5-9400F cpu (which has no onboard graphics) the motherboard video port(s?) are capped off.

Make sure you have the latest version of the Nvidia drivers.

 

Taken from PC World:

  • Right-click on the Windows desktop and select Nvidia Control Panel
  • Expand the Display section of the left-hand navigation pane and select Set up G-Sync
  • Check the “Enable G-Sync, G-Sync Compatible” box and select the Active Sync display you’d like to use if you have more than one monitor
  • Check the “Enable settings for the selected display model” box
  • Click “Apply” in the bottom-right

“If the above isn’t available, or isn’t working, you may need to go to Manage 3D Settings, click the Global tab, scroll down to Monitor Technology, select G-SYNC Compatible in the drop down, and then click Apply
