Does G-Sync still needlessly add $100-200 to the cost of a monitor, even though Nvidia caved and now support the VESA VRR standard?

Agreed, 27 inch is too big for 1080p.

Wait! There's four models?

XG270QG - G-Sync (module I think), IPS, 1440p, upto 165hz

XG270 - Freesync / G-sync Compatible, IPS, 1080p, 240hz

XG270QC - Freesync 2, 1500R curved, since it's curved might be the garbage Samsung VA, 1440p, 165hz

XG2405 & XG2705 - Freesync, IPS, 1080p, 144hz

The direct comparison would be between XG270QG and XG270QC. If Viewsonic can't keep the Freesync version (QC) at least $100 under G-sync model (QG) it kinda kills Freesync's value point.

And iirc Freesync 2 certificate requires HDR support. But with 550 nit brightness, the XG270QC is barely DisplayHDR 500 or 400 methinks.

I like ViewSonic, they have nice stuff. This one looks pretty slick. 1080p is dead though, for me at least.

It says True G-Sync for the XG270QG, do they mean a real G-Sync module IF SO is this a new G-Sync module since they support 10bit color (8-bit + A-FRC)

My understanding is that the old standard G-Sync module only supported max 8-bit color (with out FRC) or am i wrong.
