2) Supported LCD Panel

What is G-Sync?
G-Sync is a proprietary adaptive sync technology created by NVidia to eliminate screen tearing and the need for software deterrents such as Vsync. G-Sync eliminates screen tearing by forcing a video display to adapt to the frame rate of the outputting device rather than the other way around, which could traditionally be refreshed halfway through the process of a frame being output by the device, resulting in two frames being shown at once. In order for a device to use G-Sync, it must contain a proprietary G-Sync module sold by NVidia.

|Is it possible to turn the system fans on Full Speed to ensure my notebook remains cool?|
Jun 15, 2017
During normal use the fans will increase speed on their own as heat builds however, many users like to prevent the temps in their notebook from building so they toggle the fans to full speed before stressing the notebook.
If you are just sitting down to intense gaming or starting some heavy workload on your notebook and you want to turn your fans on full speed to keep things nice and cool, simply use the keystroke FN-1 and this will toggle the fans to full speed. Toggle the FN-1 again and the fans will return to their normal speed as you choose.
On the Eurocom Tornado notebook there is a Fan button on the top case that will throttle the fans to full speed and back to normal as it is pushed. This is the only model Eurocom notebook that does not use the FN-1 selection to control fan speed.
