TechPowerUp reports NVIDIA stealthily added G-SYNC support to the GeForce GT 1030, the cheapest product in its GPU lineup. I'm not sure about the point of this, it doesn't make a lot of sense to spend extra to get a G-SYNC display when you're going to game on a bargain-bin $50 GT 1030. But in case you want to do that, now you know it's possible.
With the latest GeForce drivers, Redditor "wantkitteh" found that their MSI GeForce GT 1030, when paired with an Acer Predator G-SYNC capable monitor (best guess XB272), was offering G-SYNC controls in the NVIDIA Control Panel. The monitor's OSD settings utility confirmed G-SYNC to be enabled. To meet the requirement, you need GPU and monitor to support G-SYNC, and be connected by a compatible DisplayPort 1.2 (or later) cable. It's something.
