i really was tempted with g-sync but the price and there are not that many monitors out using it and the fact the upgrade kits are no longer for sale seems to me nvidia not trying hard as they should to push it.

With free sync i cannot wait i have always had issues with stuttering and screen tearing and i would love to get rid of that

What. That makes no sense at all. Promises don't make a good driver and it's not like AMD make bad drivers anymore either. Freesync could suck balls for all we know.

I like how they took DSR, changed the D to a V and called it VSR
About time AMD got a proper downsampling solution though, up until now GeDoSaTo was the only option that worked on AMD cards. Only problem is it doesn't work with all games and you have to configure it to work for each game.

AMD has been doing that quite a bit lately :b Though you cant really blame them for wanting to be able to offer the same, if not similar perks as the other camp to make their product more appealing..

CPUs don't have drivers.
