It says it enables the VRR elements of G-Sync but isn't that all G-Sync was anyway?
All G-Sync displays were certified to offer "high-quality VRR", so it needs to meet other specific standards for input latency and meet Nvidia's overdrive specs (no ghosting etc).

A good FreeSync gaming display should do pretty well in these regards, but unless it is Nvidia certified there are no guarantees.

According to NVidia G-Sync monitors are better than "G-Sync Compatible" adaptive sync monitors because... they do some more image/colour tests on them.
G-Sync's brand mostly lives on for G-Sync HDR, which still competes with FreeSync2.

FreeSync2 isn't supported or expected to be supported on NVidia cards is it? This is just VESA AdaptiveSync support, FS2 is a lot more than that(The whole encoding/decoding pipeline changes in an FS2 monitor).

Oh, I wasn't aware of that. I was in the belief that FS2 is just a more strict standard for AdaptiveSync monitors, like G-Sync compatible.

It is. Has higer requirements for HDR and color reproduction and brightness. The VRR part just means it supports LFC.

Mark, would it be an idea to update the original post with reports from users?

If you buy a FreeSync2 monitor today then yeah that's essentially what you're getting because nothing really uses/supports the FreeSync2 software stack(It requires application specific support for syncing tone mapping and the like with the display in one step), but FreeSync2 in itself is basically an AMD specific software stack to allow the GPU to communicate a few things to the display(To save things from having to be done twice and make sure they're done correctly).

AMDs validation is roughly equivalent to the new DisplayHDR500 certification spec though if you wanted a non-FreeSync2 AdaptiveSync HDR monitor for your NVidia GPU.

Good to know. I'd really appreciate an update if you do run into any issues.

I didn't get time to try this today, guys. I was out looking at apartments all day and didn't get home til gone 6. Then I had to come to my mother's as I am still doing crap here.

It'll be next week now apparently, but if it turns cold I will have to stay put. I went into my flat today and I left the heating on 14 to make sure nothing freezes. When I turned on my PC the coolant temp was 7c. It was absolutely freezing in there and it's much milder today. I just can't be there in this weather
