    Second post down... check the inline picture... there is now a G-sync option for OS X!!! Sweet! Has anyone tried this yet on a Gsync display? Can you do ULMB now natively without having to turn it on in Windows first?? I sold my mac hardware (again, again, again...) so I cannot test.

    Basically useless. Nvidia is finding it hard to get make money from Mac users now so they enable gsync to sell more monitors. Monitors too **** for professional use. Macs to useless at gaming to benefit.

    I don't know if I'd go that far. There are many IPS displays that support gsync including the one I'm currently using. Yes, the GSync option is enabled, but I boot into windows when playing games usually because the better drivers add sometimes 20% more performance.

    Agreed. My XB271HU is IPS and is nice to look at :) proprietary gsync be damned.

    This is a great option for the eGPU folks or cMP users alike. Wonder how well it works with crossover or wine...
