https://rog.asus.com/forum/showthread.php?82612-G-SYNC-Upgrade-on-ROG-G751JY-JT-Laptops-Now-Availabl...



Hello all,

Asus seems undecided on whether they're going to allow official G-SYNC support on the existing G751's purchased before now (? - I don't know the official date, they just said this month I believe).

Please "sign" this petition by posting... even if you don't think you'll need the feature, you'll want it someday, trust me.

ASUS: Even if there are licensing fees involved or whatever, if that is indeed the reason you wouldn't offer it to existing owners.. then at least let us pay the fee for it! Something... anything!

The amount of brand-loyalty to be gained from giving this feature to existing owners would build more goodwill than you're imagining. Market it! Tell the world that you were the first to give this major support release to existing owners!

Thanks!

What a shame if Asus doesn't allow G-Sync support on existing G751 models. And then I won't be buying any Asus laptop ANY MORE.

That's too much hassle and wouldn't make any sense marketing-wise. It's 5x more than what should be expected from ASUS. Gentech just started selling a JT with G-SYNC and it's more expensive.

I also suspect a different vBIOS is the case, but I'd be immensely appreciative if some official upgrade process was available that allows us to update the vBIOS and not lose our warranties. Not sure how that would be tracked, though. Unique serial numbers of each laptop, perhaps? I don't know, it just sounds like there's no reason for current G751 owners to not be able to obtain G-SYNC licensing. *shrug*


Because Asus would have needed to pay a licensing fee to Nvidia for the new models that have G-Sync. When you bought your laptop the licensing fee wasn't included in the price. So if Asus wants to enable G-Sync on their old models then they would have to pay licensing fees for those old models, that money would have to come out of their own pocket as the owners of the old G751 never had the fee inculded in the purchase price.

Wrong m8, the gsync model has the SAME price tag as the non gsync version with the same config. $1899

If it had any extra hw, then the price would be higher too...

256GB SSD model used to go for $1.799 at launch, don't know what happened after.

BUT most of them are willing to PAY for it.

They can't just give it to one person who pays, then he'll give it to everyone else (the vBIOS/BIOS or whatever enables the Nvidia driver to recognize that the device is G-Sync supported). So if EVERYONE doesn't pay then NO ONE gets G-Sync, do you see the problem they have?
