Hi I have an Acer Predator X34P monitor with NVIDIA GSYNC proprietary module purchased in 2019. I used it with an NVIDIA 2080TI GPU. Now I would like to buy an AMD 7900XTX video card but continue to use the same monitor. So now I'm wondering: is my monitor compatible with FREESYNC? If not, is there a software update? Is there a solution to make it compatible? Thank you

    Most G-Sync modules do support Freesync as well. That one is old enough though that it might be before they started adding that option to the G-Sync chipset. The X34P doesn't have a separate G-Sync card, instead the chipset is incorporated into the main board, so I believe it less likely to support Freesync than more modern monitors.

    Can I ask if there is software or another way to check in advance that my monitor is compatible/incompatible with FreeSync technology? Or can I be sure of compatibility/incompatibility just by testing it with an AMD video card?

    Thank you

    I think you need the GPU before you can test Freesync.

    If I buy the 7900XTX to use with my FREESYNC-incompatible X34P, what problems will I have? With the 7900XTX I could afford to keep a stable 100fps (97) in practically any game and in theory I wouldn't need GSYNC/FREESYNC, right? Thank you

    I also asked Acer support and they wrote to me that through Adaptive Sync my monitor is compatible with an AMD video card. Does this mean that through the Adrenalin software, I will be able to activate Adaptive Sync?
