Leaked Nvidia driver offers taste of mobile G-Sync
January 30, 2015
Earlier this week, news surfaced of a leaked Nvidia driver that could supposedly enable G-Sync on any mobile or desktop display. The author used this driver to argue that Nvidia's GeForce was nothing but a DRM scam, and that the Altera Arria V FPGA inside the G-Sync module was nothing but a DRM mechanism designed to ensure that G-Sync was limited to Nvidia-approved monitors and video cards. Gamenab's various claims run the gamut from flatly incorrect to highly dubious, but there is a kernel of accuracy to them - specifically, the driver the website leaked does enable an early version of G-Sync support on at least one laptop. Gamenab makes a number of inflammatory accusations concerning G-Sync support. According to the site, G-Sync is "a kind of DRM component protection," CUDA "was made to force the developers to work on an Nvidia GPU," and the Altera FPGA inside the G-Sync module "does nothing else than confirm that the module is right here."
