Enabling G-SYNC

Holoscan v0.5.1

For better performance and to keep up with the high refresh rate of Holoscan applications, we recommend the use of a G-SYNC display.


Holoscan has been tested with these two G-SYNC displays:

Follow these steps to ensure G-SYNC is enabled on your display:

  1. Open the “NVIDIA Settings” Graphical application (nvidia-settings in Terminal).

  2. Click on X Server Display Configuration then the Advanced button. This will show the Allow G-SYNC on monitor not validated as G-SYNC compatible option. Enable the option and click Apply:

Now click Allow G-SYNC/G-SYNC Compatible and Enable G-SYNC/G-SYNC Compatible Visual Indicator options and click Quit. This step is shown in below image. The Gsync indicator will be at the top right screen once the application is running.
