G-Sync (compatible) has stopped working - 460.39

I have just come back from a small break - run all the updates on my Arch (with gnome) box and found that G-Sync is no longer working.

All settings are correct in nvidia-settings and my monitor. I’ve tried multiple application. In OpenGL the indicator says “NORMAL” and never changes to G-Sync.

Is there anything I can do to try to troubleshoot this?

You could try to start a bare X server as suggested here:

Thanks, I’ll give this a try

I have tried that and the issue continues… I’ve checked the driver I am running 460.39-8…

Ok I just resolved it by disabling the two force composition pipeline options.


nvidia-settings really should disable the g-sync option, as soon the composition pipeline is activated and vice-versa.
