NVIDIA might be working on G-SYNC Linux support

Graphics/Benchmarks

NVidia GSync is proprietary technology found on supported NVidia cards that reduces tearing, stuttering, input lag, and other similar gaming problems by not having the monitor’s refresh rate be fixed but rather it’s a dynamic refresh rate that will scan out whenever the GPU is finished rendering. Till now, this feature was only limited to Windows 7, 8 & 8.1. But maybe due to the flurry by the developers to bring games to Linux and game engines being released on Linux, it could be anyone’s guess that NVidia thought it to be a good time to give Linux users the full feature package too. Add to that Valve pushing Steam machines and Steam OS and NVidia has all the more reason to give their much needed attention in bringing more features to Linux.

The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
