Nvidia Support For FreeSync
Over a year ago, Nvidia introduced its G-Sync technology, allowing the GPU to control screen refresh such that problems like stutter, tearing and lag are removed. G-Sync fixes a problem that has existed for a long time, and while we like what it does, we don’t like that it’s a proprietary technology.
Neither does AMD, and that’s exactly why it launched project FreeSync. The company worked with the VESA alliance to implement adaptive-sync into the DisplayPort standard, and it succeeded in making it an optional protocol. The two technologies essentially accomplish the same thing, but AMD’s version is free to use, rather than proprietary and expensive. Nvidia, if you would like to make 2015 complete, please add support for FreeSync, even if that means cannibalizing all potential G-Sync sales. – by Niels Broekhuijsen
