Screen Tearing | Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Screen tearing occurs when a graphics card is rendering frames at a rate in excess of the refresh rate of the monitor. The result can be that a single frame displayed by the monitor is a mix of 2 separate frames, one in front of the other. A visual artefact is produced on the screen where a section of the image is from a different frame to the rest of the image, resulting in a 'torn' looking effect.

My very non-technical understanding is that the graphics card is trying to 'cram' too many frames down the monitor's throat. It's more likely to be unnoticed if one frame is similar to the next (for example your character is stationary on the screen), but if the difference in frames is large (your character is spinning around quickly), screen tearing will become more noticeable.

Nvidia G-Sync Syncs Screen Refresh Rate To GPU For Super-Smooth Gaming
Refresh rate of monitor is variable instead of fixed. Completely synced with the graphics card, a new frame is only drawn when it is fed one by the graphics card. It is a 'slave' to the graphics card.
