Seems like a big weakness if freesync doesn't work over the maximum refreshrate, so that vsync is needed after all as he says. Big advantage to gsync, if true.

G-sync is limited by the display's maximum refresh rate, so I don't know where this is coming from. Blurbusters shows G-sync acts like conventional V-sync as you approach the maximum refresh rate.

Right, but Nvidia has already said that they're working on an update to address that.

I won't be surprised at all if AMD's implementation ends up being inferior to G-Sync. They have a tendency to fuck up anything they do.

Never heard before, I don't think that's true, then there would've been tons of ppl saying gsync is worthless due to high input lag. Any link to a test showing extreme input lag in gsync at high fps?

The only one i found shows almost identical input lag of vsync off/gsync on;
http://www.blurbusters.com/gsync/preview2/

There was one scenario where gsync had high input lag (running 300 fps uncapped), but when limited to 120 the problem went away.

Definitely no vsync-input lag there.

In AMD's own admission, there are more monitors that would be FreeSync compatiable. So all those monitors that's rumored to have "DP1.2a Plus" or DP1.3 are probably those, my guess

As for G-Sync, I see one of these scenarios happening (though not in the near future):

1) NVidia will make the next generation G-Sync modules adaptive-sync compatible. This will make every G-Sync monitor to also be FreeSync monitors. Manufacturers will be happy.

2) NVidia will use adaptive-sync for G-Sync, thereby making the modules unnecessary. This will make all FreeSync monitors to also be G-Sync monitors. Manufacturers will also be happy.

3) NVidia continues using their proprietary modules without adaptive-sync. Modules pricing will drop as typical electronics do, but it will continue to cost more than just implementing the VESA standard. NVidia will tout all the little things that almost no gamers really care due to them having very little impact on how G-Sync is slightly better than FreeSync. The greatest difference, for this upcoming generation at least, would like be that the GTX980Ti would likely be slightly better than the R9 390x from the get-go. Manufacturers will make two versions of gaming monitors and might not make as much money as they would have.

Where do you brand whores come from? Seriously, do you get paid to spew this shit or do you just hate on companies for fun?

I've bought dozens of video cards from both Nvidia and ATI/AMD and the number of issues I have is pretty even between the two brands. If someone makes a video card and brands it the 'Pontiac Aztec', I'll buy two of them as long as it has solid minimum frame rates at a competitive price point. That's all that matters.
