[Guru3D] Nvidia is NOT going to support VESA Adaptive Sync

post #1 of 294
Thread Starter 
Seems Nvidia is NOT going after A-sync after all. It makes sense.Why would they support A-sync while they invested so much money on G-sync and they already released it? Personally I don't care as you need specific graphics card for either option so it's the same.

Last week some website posted that Nvidia would be adding VESA Adaptive Sync support to their graphics cards, this misinterpretation or rumor was quickly debunked by Nvidia’s Brian Del Rizzo (Senior PR Manager from Nvidia).

Put the source in your title.

Well this is disappointing news, even though it makes sense.

Uh guys, Maxwell is eDP 1.4 compliant.

And here's VESA's description of adaptive sync
Quote:
Adaptive-Sync is a proven and widely adopted technology. The technology has been a standard component of VESA’s embedded DisplayPort (eDP™) specification since its initial rollout in 2009. As a result, Adaptive-Sync technology is already incorporated into many of the building block components for displays that rely on eDP for internal video signaling. Newly introduced to the DisplayPort 1.2a specification for external displays, this technology is now formally known as DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync.

Put 2 and 2 together. Maxwell has the signaling requirements to implement Adaptive-Sync/FreeSync. Nvidia might even consider putting it on their boxes when the monitors come out in a year.

The capability to support it, and actually implementing support for it, are two very different things. We know they're capable, the question is will they? It seems like at this moment, they won't.

This may help sales of G-Sync screens, but will negatively affect sales of their GPUs... Not sure they did the math right.

But I thought they mentioned they would support it just a couple of days ago. What went wrong?

This was a representatives slip of the tongue in a behind the scenes presentation it would seem. Potentially though, they still might IMO

Has Adaptive Sync been demoed or possibly even released to public yet? If so, is there any differences to end users compared to GSync in any way? If there isn't, it would (unfortunately) make sense for Nvidia not to implement it. At this point, ASync seems to be pulling ahead.

Makes me sad but yeah they still might, maybe they quietly support to not make it look like they are giving in.

It has now become apparent that according to specs listed on NVIDIA's website the new VESA DisplayPort 1.2a addendum is not supported, if you look up the latest GeForce GTX 970 and 980 for example, you'll see DP 1.2 and not 1.2a in the spec list.

I'm sorry, but that hardly a proof and a poor reason for this whole article, especially in a light when an official Nvidia employee tells the opposite.

Just because a connection is compliant with a certain version of spec doesn't mean that extra functionality cannot be added on top of that when needed. The simple matter of fact is that they support G-Sync as is and my guess would be that extra info send through DP is likely very similar between both G-Sync and FreeSync. The main difference here is G-Sync module, not what data is sent to monitor.
