A new video from the chip developer's booth at CES 2019 should help us understand why only a pinch of all the X-FreeSync Will receive official and built-in GeForce support
NVIDIA announces support for VESA Adaptive Sync screens, Or FreeSync as they are known under the competitor's branding AMD, Has surprised many positively - though at the same time raising a lot of eyebrows as she came along with a statement that only a pinch of 12 models from the 400 examined will indeed receive official and full support from models GeForce From both modern generations, while the rest do not provide a quality display or a quality experience enough to justify smoothing motion in the image by adjusting the vertical refresh rate to the rate of real-time frames.
It was easy to predict claims that this was another marketing trick aimed at tricking consumers into buying more advanced and expensive models, and it seemed that the green chip developer was expecting it too - and had a pair of anonymous screens (manufacturer names covered in favor of maintaining good business relationships) that officially support Adaptive Sync But clearly illustrate the potential problems in an implementation that is not sufficiently high quality.
One of the screens exhibited a significant blur of the display in a fast-moving phenomenon known as Pixel Overdrive, while the other displayed an inability of a display controller to maintain long-lasting synchronization that caused "flashes" of darkness every few seconds there without moving in the display, all alongside screens G-SYNC Authenticated software or hardware that presented a smooth and smooth experience of course.
The FreeSync standard, or Adaptive Sync, is free to use and does not require any exams or standards, so it is no surprise that on basic and cheap screens compromising quality on the way to the price target - on the one hand, it is reasonable to assume that NVIDIA Consciously chose the most prominent edge cases to present to visitors in order to increase the effectiveness of proof, but on the other hand, there will now be some attempt to sort out the mess and separate the best for the rest, even for consumers who hold GeForce cards and for consumers with Radeon cards, NVIDIA Of course, declare that the negative phenomena in the gaming screens are not exclusive to the company's graphic cards.
The official support for Adaptive Sync is expected to come in the drivers update for NVIDIA At 15 in January, with manual operation capability for any screen that supports the standard and direct automatic playback to screens which have passed its official certification of the company.
