Likewise, the display offers a widened color gamut that offers over 99% of the sRGB color space with wide viewing angles and shorter input lag. In addition, the monitor uses NVIDIA G-Sync gaming display technology which dynamically matches the 144Hz (overclockable to 166Hz) refresh rate of the screen to the frame rate output of the GPU, helping to eliminate tearing while reducing stutter and input lag.
