In 2013 Nvidia introduced a technology called G-Sync. The primary purpose of this technology is to reduce input lag as well as eliminate screen tearing. Some monitor manufacturers — Acer in particular — adopt this technology to deliver a better quality monitors to consumers. A monitor that adopts Nvidia G-Sync is ideal for running applications that require high graphical resources like 3D adventure games and 3D makers.
The definition of G-Sync can be so technical and complicated, but the point is that a G-Sync monitor is capable of delivering smoother, lag-free graphics. That is why many gamers opt to this technology.
