LG UltraGear Monitor Receives World's First VESA AdaptiveSync Certification

In early May, VESA announced AdaptiveSync and MediaSync certification for variable refresh rates , the former for gaming monitors and the latter for media playback or content creation monitors.

Today, LG announced the world's first VESA AdaptiveSync certification for its UltraGear monitors.

LG said its UltraGear gaming monitors ( models 27GP950 and 27GP850 ) are the first monitors in the world to receive VESA AdaptiveSync Display Certification from the Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA).

"The VESA Adaptive-Sync Display certification creates a clear, consistent standard for gaming monitor display performance and helps consumers make informed purchasing decisions," said Jim Choate, VESA Compliance Program Manager. "LG's UltraGear gaming monitors are among the best in the world. The first product to carry the new AdaptiveSync Display logo and perform well in all tests."

The variable refresh rate (VRR) technology allows the display to synchronize its refresh rate with the refresh rate of the output of devices such as computers , thereby reducing the occurrence of problems such as screen tearing. Currently, Nvidia has G-Sync technology, while AMD has FreeSync. VESA's new certification aims to provide similar assurances for adaptive sync support for monitors or notebooks. But unlike Nvidia or AMD's certification, it's an open-source industry standard whose testing criteria are public.
