GSYNC always on

Hey, for the last couple days GSYNC mode has been stuck on 100% of the time when the refresh rate is 120 or 144hz. This includes when I'm on the desktop. Which I didn't even think was possible? Anyone have any ideas? I've disabled/re-enabled GSYNC in the drivers, unplugged the monitor, etc.

It's a bug with the nVidia software, that's causing the little red light to be on all the time. Even though g-sync isn't happening when you are in desktop mode. It got introduced a couple patches ago. I wouldn't worry about it.

Ok, thanks.

I am still annoyed by this issue, however, as it makes it impossible to actually tell when GSYNC is on or not.

They fixed that in the latest driver.
Go to nvcp > Manage 3D Settings > Monitor Technology >Set it to ULMB. Apply
Now deactivate ulmb on the monitor itself, unless you want it on desktop.
Do the same thing for all your games but instead select G-sync on Monitor technology.
All your game will run G-sync except desktop.

Seems more like a workaround than a fix compared to how it used to work by properly changing automatically so that we know when it's working properly.

I have same problem now... Asus monitor PG279Q and asus 1080 Ti driver 398.82 and also newest 398.98 not working. Must manually turn on and turn of g-sync.

Really dont need if i surfing on net. I want only automatically runs when i run game, when i quit game then stop g-sync. Thats all.

I am with contact with nVidia and created this issue today.

I have gtx 1080 and I am searching for a new 1440p monitor. But i do not know which one should I buy:
ASUS MG279Q or Acer Predator XB271HUAbmiprz ?
It is pretty much a decision between IPS 144hz with freesync vs TN 165hz with g-sync…

Which monitor would you take?

The G-Sync monitor since FreeSync doesn't work with Nvidia GPUs like yours. The 165Hz TN panel is pretty good in terms of color reproduction and viewing angles from what I've seen.
