Hands-on with AMD's FreeSync: The technology that could kill Nvidia's G-Sync

Gordon Mah Ung | March 20, 2015
If there's one thing tech market doesn't need, it's another standards cat fight. But you survived Firewire vs. USB, HD-DVD vs. Blu-ray, and RDRAM vs. DDR so get ready for the battle between Nvidia's G-Sync and AMD's FreeSync to kick into high gear.

Some believe that Nvidia could easily end the debate by supporting Adaptive Sync as well, but that's unlikely to happen as long as Nvidia leads the GPU market and can convince gamers to spend more to buy G-Sync displays. An Nvidia spokesman pretty much confirmed that: "We have no plans to support the Adaptive Sync optional protocol," he told PCWorld "We are only focused on G-Sync."

In other words, bunker down because this war is going to last longer than you want it to.
