FPS Counter: The FPS counter lets you know how smoothly the game is running. *This can be activated while FreeSync™ is on.

Asus-Exclusive Displaywidget Software

Adjustments to these utilities can be made via the On Screen Display (OSD) menu or the navigational joystick, but ASUS DisplayWidget makes accessing and using these various settings much faster and easier.

App Sync: Lets you assign specific ASUS GameVisual modes to individual applications and game titles to make sure the program you are using is in your preferred mode. You also have the option of changing these assigned settings quickly .

ASUS Ultra-Low Blue Light technology reduces the amount of blue light emitted by the display and features four different filter settings onscreen to suit the task at hand. These settings can also be easily accessed via the OSD menu.
Sharable Display Setting Parameter: All customised GameVisual settings can be saved to an AXML file format that can be shared with other same monitor users.

NVIDIA G-Sync
NVIDIA G-Sync
Date Issued: 17th Dec 2013

G-SYNC works in a surprisingly simple way - it calculates how long the present frame takes to compute and then, crucially, varies the refresh rate of the monitor to match. It works between a minimum of 33.3ms (30fps) and the maximum supported refresh of the display. The key takeaway here is that the graphics card and monitor are both synced up to one another - the monitor doesn't have the limitations imposed by a rigid, fixed-rate scanning routine.

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.
