At CES NVIDIA announced it is expanding the availability of G-SYNC to some monitors not specifically designed for this frame-syncing technology. A new driver release on January 15th will add GYSNC support to 10- and 20-series graphics cards for a dozen monitors "capable of variable refresh rates (VRR) using the VESA DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync protocol." They don't mention FreeSync at all, but the "G-SYNC Compatible" monitors are listed on this page advertize native FreeSync support. FreeSync was developed by AMD as a competitor to G-SYNC, and both are ways of providing high framerates and tear-free graphics without requiring the use of Vsynch, and since it doesn't carry the same licensing costs as GSYNC, supporting it is less expensive to manufacturers and consumers. They say they tested 400 monitors to come up with the 12 on their compatible list, so this is more on a case-by-case basis than is universal support, but they do say they will continue to test monitors and update the list. Along the way they also announce new Big Format screens for living rooms with G-SYNC HDR support and a range of new G-SYNC monitors, but there's no word on whether they are dropping G-SYNC licensing fees for manufacturing partners. Here are more details:
