Freesync is AMD's name for Adaptive synchronization which has been accepted as VESA standard and moving forward by Intel. Nividia can come out and support Async maybe by Volta if not by Pascal if they want. Async is not proprietary like Gsync.

I may entertain another Nvidia card if they support Async some day.

So you're saying Freesync and Async are the same thing and terms are used interchangeably?

See this if you want to know a bit about Async.

He might be referring to Freesync using part of the Adaptive sync standard. Maybe he is shorting Adaptive sync down to Async. But I generally refer to Async as relating to Asynchronous compute or Asynchronous Shaders.

Yeah its not a good idea to shorten Adaptive Sync to Async since that is a reference to Asynchronous Compute

Yep two different things being discussed.

Basically as Arizonan stated amd use freesync technology which basically an alternative name for the adaptive synchronisation a technology which has been accepted as the VESA standard. It's great as unlike gsync is all port based technology provided you have the right card. Unlike gsync which in addition to being propitary needs hardware in the panel itself which lends to a price premium.

Async is typically short hand for asynchronise compute a entirely different subject.

Yeah I think your both right and for the sake of confusion I'll use the term "adaptive sync" without cutting corners moving forward even when discussing a monitor. Changed the XG2700 thread title to reflect as well.
