The G-SYNC Compatible program expands the G-SYNC ecosystem, brings a mark of quality to Adaptive-Sync displays and educates consumers on which displays provide a good entry level variable refresh rate (VRR) gaming experience. 

Under the G-SYNC Compatible program, NVIDIA works with monitor OEMs to validate the experience on monitors that support the Adaptive-Sync protocol. Those that pass are designated as “G-SYNC Compatible”. 

This driver also includes support GeForce GTX 1650 desktop, and GeForce GTX 1660 Ti and GTX 1650 notebook GPUs, as well as support for Windows 10 May 2019 Update (including Variable Rate Shading).
