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...
