According to our source, we thank again the various discussions on this proposal took place in the month of February between relevant members of VESA and, good news, it has been adopted as planned. Since April 1, and it is not a fish, the list of requests SCR adopted a new mentions: Extend DP1.2a MSA Tmg settings Ignore Option AMD . VESA and / or AMD should no longer delay to officially announce arrival of the refresh frequency variable for the standard DisplayPort 1.2a. remains of course many questions about its support in practice since it will be optional.

The source is written in french and google translate doesn't do a good job but at least we can derive what this means.

Big news. You can badmouth AMD silicon all you want, but it's hard to deny that the open standards they support and advocate are good for everybody.

Woohoo!

Hopefully this kills g-sync so everyone can benefit.

Well its still optional, if it were mandatory I'd be happy but since it's not we gotta wait and see if major players pick it up.

I want this to succeed but I still have my doubts that it will take root

Cue the haters claiming it's impossible to have variable refreshrate the way freesync works and that no panels nor cards supports it and yadda yadda yadda biggrin.gif

Seriously though, this is great news.

You are confusing the statements made that were "Current hardware doesn't support it", with what you just said.

I wonder if the translation on that messed up and put DP 1.2 instead of 1.3. It would be interesting to see if it wad adopted on 1.2, although hardware would still need new firmware, in the least, to take advantage of it.
