What is Adaptive-Sync?

The gaming monitor market has been experiencing rapid growth in recent years. With the flourishing of the gaming industry and gamers’ demand for higher quality and smoother gaming experiences, gaming monitors have become an indispensable part of gaming equipment. Here are some insights into the gaming monitor market. One crucial aspect is the introduction of high refresh rates and Adaptive-Sync technology. The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA®) introduced the Adaptive-Sync (variable refresh rate) feature for gaming products with the release of the DisplayPort 1.4 spec. This allows users to reduce screen tearing and latency during gameplay, providing a smoother gaming experience. Synchronization between graphics cards and monitors with different refresh rates is crucial. Adaptive-Sync functionality is now widely supported in gaming monitors and high-end graphics cards from Intel, Nvidia, AMD, and others. However, for consumers investing in such high-spec products, the inability to achieve the desired functionality can greatly impact the consumer experience.

Risk and Solutions for Delay in Gaming Monitors

Gaming monitors are products used by high-end professional gamers, and performance is of utmost importance. Through long-term collaboration with mainstream display brands in the market, Allion has discovered from customer feedback that many monitors incorporating Adaptive-Sync functionality still experience issues such as screen stuttering and tearing, as illustrated in the image below.

The main reason is that AdaptiveSync certification is not mandatory. Many manufacturers overlook the importance of relevant verification without certification, leading to undetected product design flaws. In response to this issue, Allion offers the following solution:
