NVIDIA Open Up Support for Adaptive-sync/FreeSync for Future Native G-sync Module Screens

In the last year we’ve seen a distinct change to NVIDIA’s approach to variable refresh rates (VRR) and their ‘G-sync’ technology. Historically there was a clear demarcation between the competing NVIDIA G-sync and AMD FreeSync options. If you had an NVIDIA graphics and wanted to use G-sync VRR then you also needed a display featuring the added G-sync hardware module chip. If you had an AMD graphics card and wanted to use their alternative ‘FreeSync’ technology for VRR, you needed a screen which supported the VESA adaptive-sync standard. You could not mix and match the two options – so you could not use NVIDIA G-sync on an adaptive-sync display, and you could not use FreeSync from a Native G-sync display. This is all changing …
