Your post clearly shows you have read ZERO into VRR and how it functions. Please, stop spreading fud.
Oh, and FreeSync wasn't free, by any means. It was "free" in the sense that AMD didn't have to put much into it, and left fixing it and getting it running up to the hardware manufacturers of the panels and control boards. Unlike Nvidia, who sold the G-Sync module at cost, and actually took the time to tune it to each display that opted to use it.
Has FreeSync come a long way sense? Yes! Is VRR as a whole amazing? Yes! Thankfully, no matter what happens to G-Sync as we know it, it started the VRR race. So in the end, we all win. Hopefully it does become, as a whole, an open standard in all displays.
VRR is one of the most significant developments in gaming and display tech in damn near forever. So even having another G-Sync v FreeSync discussion is pointless and does nothing to move it forward. Just like spreading misinformation.
Are you sure I'm the one spreading Fud? You're fanboyism doesn't let you see clearly... Again.
The only thing that Nvidia Gsync does better is Vsync, so I beg your pardon? Don't get mad at me for using facts when forming my opinion, unlike you who only take Nvidia's PR statements.
For anyone that's Lazy just go to minute 11:40, please keep considering Nvidia's statements like if they were coming from the Bible, is very amusing.
Also FreeSync is FREE, I can get a FreeSync perfectly Working 1440p 144Hz 1ms Acer XG270HU for 300$ (Last Amazon Sale), how much do the Gsync equivalent cost? even when using the same Panel it never gets below 500$, its FREE where it matters.
Also you talk about AMD FreeSync having issues at launch like if Gsync came flawlessly to the market, the FUD is strong, as strong as the fanboyism.
Oh, and don't mind the fact that thanks to FreeSync Monitors like the BenQ XL2730Z we do have complete 144Hz Strobing thanks to not having Gsync doing it.
EDIT: I'm eagerly waiting for your response to this, you always back up when you are proven wrong, third time on this thread alone. I want to see how you discredit LinusTechTips, or how 45FPS is the only thing that matters for VRR.Edited by Dargonplay - 2/13/16 at 9:38pm
