Yeah I was going to go AMD for a mid-range card because of freesync but it does look like nvidia support is limited to a select few monitors at this point so I will have to see come summer what the lay of the land is like.

Correction. Only a few monitors will automatically turn on Adaptive Sync. The rest can be enabled manually, but no guaranteed results.

Doesn't really matter as much about the guaranteed results. It shows that Nvidia couldn't continue making G-Sync proprietary and not adaptive of VESA's adaptive sync forever. They eventually caved to the pressure. This is the same Nvidia led by this CEO who happened to be in the news again:

Driver is out, who's going to be the first to test it out? I'll give it a shot this evening!

Initial reports off Reddit are promising. No performance numbers yet versus previous drivers, but people are getting freesync to work. Its currently only over DP and not HDMI however. Also apparently does NOT work under Win7 at all currently.

This guy does good performance reviews (to previous driver versions) for Turing (20xx), so keep an eye on it for him to update

And this guy does the same for previous driver performance comparisons on Pascal (10xx). Same as above, he says he'll have his benchmarks up tonight EU time (so like...soon).

With my GTX 1080 and Acer XG270HU. Works great. It's a big difference. I am really happy. It's about time Nvidia supported A-Sync.
