Anybody else upset with how adaptive sync has played out?

So it seems that my next graphics card upgrade has pretty much been decided for me. I have to go Nvidia.

Freesync has been a let down and the monitor which fits my bill (hardware wise) is G-Sync compliant. (27", 1080p, 1ms, 144hz, VESA)

I really dislike the fact that you are now becoming bound to a company because you purchased their adaptive sync module. I upgrade my monitor so infrequently that I will have to buy green for the next 3-5 years.

Adaptive sync is too good to pass up so I feel I must choose a side. I can't justify purchasing a regular monitor when there is such an innovative technology available to me.

Yes I could wait and see how the situation matures (as neither side is perfect, G-sync = no hdmi & expensive, Freesync = bad range/drivers) but that totally prevents me from upgrading now (which I have to do as I only have the summer in which to game due to uni)

The main reason I love PC gaming is the freedom to play what you want, how you want. Who else is feeling as restricted as a console peasant? Really want to hear peoples feedback on this.

I think you've given up on freesync too soon. Its not been out nearly as long as gsync has been.

The fact that the technology just got released is a factor. Another factor is the manufacturers themselves who choose the parts to go in the monitors. You should wait a couple of months, VESA might make adjustments to the original design to fix any issues on their side, then we will see how the manufacturers will adress those issues etc


Theory is when you have the "know how" but nothing works.
Practice is when everything works but no one knows why.
In our lab, theory and practice are combined: Nothing works and no one knows why
