Quoting: furaxhornyxI really like this idea, however, I am wondering how this would work with multiple monitors ?

For example, I have 2 monitors, one is 180Hz with Gsync, and the other is 75Hz, so technically I could play at 180Hz (max) with Gsync enabled, (like I did when I was using Windows), but under linux, I am capped at 75Hz with no Gsync...

So I am afraid that the answer to these question will be biased.

I guess the same way it works now with question for resolution? The answer only allows one option.

Quoting: EikeIf I had such a setup, i'd disable the second monitor for gaming to get what I payed for.

Yep, indeed. If you have a high quality monitor, you can disable the worse one while you are playing something to get full benefit from adaptive sync and high refresh rate.

Wayland compositors should support mixed cases better.

But that's a general X11 thing, so that applies to everybody that has GSYNC on Linux. It only works on a single screen setup.

Except that it currently doesn't seem to work reliably (in X11 at least). I tried rebooting with only my Gsync monitor, but Gsync was only active in a Gsync demo and some games (enabled in Dead Cells, disabled in Crucible for example). But that's another story ;)

Yes, I know. But, in the survey, would I have to:
- say that I have Gsync / adaptive sync, even though it is not technically working, so I am not really using it ?
- say that I do not have it, but then someone may conclude from the survey that very few people have a Gsync display, so there's no point in making it work ?

That's my concern ; as I said, this could be a nice addition to the survey, and it is gaming-related.

Can't say about Gsync, it's not a standard but some proprietary Nvidia only protocol. Standard adaptive sync is using regular DisplayPort features. It works very reliably for me.

Same with AMD too, I have a 144hz FS2 screen as my main and a standard 60hz pannel as my second. Never actually tried freesync yet as it's to handy having the second monitor on!

Hey guys. Currently, I'm on migrating little by little from Ubuntu to Linux Mint Debian Edition (LMDE). So, for PC info...

LMDE: Mint or Debian or we need new distro category?

p/s: Please don't ask why I'm not switch to (the real/vanilla) Debian. Just don't ask, please..

Why don't you switch to real Debian, though?

I am currently on Debian Stable, run on USB Drive. But to cut story short, I kinda love LMDE. It's kinda having the old school Ubuntu 8.04/10.04 LTS vibe without much modification IMO.

Debian (vanilla).. needs many tinkering, tweaking and customization to at least usable for me.
