I recently got a new monitor (ASUS TUF Gaming VG27AQ1A) and it's listed as G-SYNC compatible however I can't find the option to enable it anywhere. I'm using a Blade 14 (RTX 3060 Laptop GPU) and I've tried messing around in Settings & NVIDIA Control Panel, but I can't find the option to turn on G-SYNC anywhere. I've tried switching the display mode using the display settings too, but I can't find anything. I did notice that Variable Refresh rate was on in the monitor settings (I don't know if I should leave this enabled), but even with it off, I still didn't have any success. ASUS did note that G-SYNC & Freesync on this monitor is turned off by default. Is it because I'm using HDMI instead of DisplayPort? If that's the case, would I need a DisplayPort to HDMI cable or would I need to use a USB-C DP to DP cable? My laptop supports HDMI 2.1 & DP 1.4, but I think the monitor I'm using is only HDMI 2.0 & DisplayPort 1.2.
