(OC) = Overclocked. These are models which we have confirmed run at the stated refresh rate through our own testing, either by setting a custom resolution or using an overclocking function in the monitor OSD (On Screen Display).

VRR = Variable Refresh Rate. For ‘FreeSync’ reviews published after 15th January 2019, we also assess Nvidia Adaptive-Sync (‘G-SYNC Compatible’) support. If we’re satisfied that the Adaptive-Sync performance using ‘G-SYNC Compatible Mode’ is sufficiently similar to the AMD FreeSync performance on a given model, we mark this ‘+GSC’. This is based on our own testing with the GPU mentioned in a given review and not to be confused with Nvidia’s own ‘G-SYNC Compatible’ certification program.
