This thread covers a lot of ground-quite a bit of genre cornerstones as well as some deeper gems (VHS Glitch!). Here's two I dig that I haven't seen mentioned in this thread:

For heavier/darker stuff there's Master Boot Record. The gimmick is framed as metal played by a sentient computer. And it's not terribly far off-metal riffs and leads as interpreted through thickly distorted synths. The drum samples are reminiscent of old Godflesh, tome-wise. Plus, there is a bonus album out there called WAREZ that is a huge collection of old 8 and 16 bit video game themes done in the MBR style (this compilation is given away as a bonus when one buys any of the albums on Bandcamp).

For lighter/poppier stuff, Crockett is my go to. What's interesting is that the full lengths and EPs are thematically separate. The full lengths have this sleazy, 80s drug/crime underworld vibe while the EPs are more uplifting dreamwave. Really well done stuff.

If anyone is into tapes, I'm releasing a tape limited to 50 copies of Deathray Bam!'s newest album, Blackk Mirror. Really good synthwave/new wave/synth-pop from Brazil.

Not sure if this qualifies as pure synthwave, but it's bloody gorgeous none the less. Perfect composition, production and soundscapes woven into this almost ethereal urban feel. THYX is a project from one Stephen Poiss from Mind.In.A.Box, who already do some amazing dreampop, synthpop and whateverthehell, but this track is pure magic.

Gravity

So good.

Some of y'all might dig this. Occult dark synth, doomy parts with more aggressive middle section. Cool vocal samples

Check it out.

Description sounds good. Hope the execution is too.
