Quit while you're ahead guys... at least AMD's solution is free, given your future monitor's capabilities.
I have similar thoughts.
Because benchmarks now include frame time measurements, Nvidia and AMD have been able to capitalize on that to create a product for a market that shouldn’t really exist. Frame latency performance is a metric that helps quantify how smooth gameplay is or is not. However, even though we can put numbers to it, the perception of gameplay stutter is still mostly subjective
; it will vary from person to person and will continue to vary even with G-sync/FreeSync.
G-sync/FreeSync will help, but the problem will still exist. The refresh rates are now synchronized, but there still lies the issue of how long it takes to for a frame to actually reach the output of the GPU where it goes into your monitor.
Both companies should just focus on their drivers to improve the experience, especially AMD since historically their drivers don't perform as well as Nvidia's.
I think that sometimes we gamers just take our hobby a little bit too seriously to the point where it interferes with our enjoyment of games.Edited by stn0092 - 1/9/14 at 5:00pm
