NVIDIA's "G-Sync Compatible" program expands its variable refresh rate (VRR) reach, welcoming monitors that are compliant with the VESA DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync standard, including AMD FreeSync. NVIDIA tested hundreds of monitors and certified those that deliver a leading G-Sync experience. We've rounded up the best monitors crowned G-Sync Compatible in 2022, sorted by the features and prices best for you.

The big picture

With NVIDIA's "G-Sync Compatible" program, you're getting all the best in VRR options on any G-Sync-enabled PC, available across an extensive range of NVIDIA-approved hardware. The list continues to grow as new manufacturers meet the demands, making it harder than ever to choose from the list, including many of the best computer monitors.

While standard G-Sync monitors are more expensive than their FreeSync counterparts, G-Sync Compatibility expands support to more panels, including some more affordable alternatives. The initiative translates to both FreeSync and G-Sync support across a handful of products, ensuring a great gaming experience no matter your setup.

Amid a diverse offering of G-Sync Compatible monitors, the LG 27GN950-B emerges as our top pick. Its 27-inch, 4K 144Hz panel boasts a balance of clarity and performance, adaptive between fast-paced gaming or everyday tasks. With great HDR support for gaming, coupled with low response times and input lag, there's no better all-rounder on this list. However, with varying availability in 2022, check you're not straying far from the $800 RRP. It's also worth considering the latest LG 27GP950, an identical model with HDMI 2.1 connectivity, supporting 4K resolutions up to 120 FPS, and easily the best monitor for Xbox Series X and PlayStation 5 gaming.

For gamers on a tighter budget, the 27-inch Acer XF270H is one of the most affordable G-Sync Compatible monitors, dropping below $250. Passing NVIDIA's rigorous certification process is no easy feat, making this 1080p 144Hz offering ideal for new adopters. The high refresh rate ensures slick performance across all the latest games, with a relatively good HD image, considering the price.
