From a latency standpoint, it isn't different. Even with a GSync Module, once you near the refresh rate the latency is almost as bad as VSync. That's why it's recommended to cap the framerate well below the refresh rate.I don't get this, though:
"Using GSync on a FreeSync monitor - never use Vertical Sync in Control Panel or Game because it will just be Vertical Sync. Real GSync monitors with GSync modules the Nvidia Control panel Vertical Sync works with it and is different then just pure VSync."
How is it different between true Gsync and Gsync compatible monitors?
However, in the case of GSync Module + VSync On, there is frametime variance compensation going on behind the scenes. This can't be concerted with VSync Off even within the GSync range.
The video does not go into frametime variance, only input latency which is completely different. Without a study on the effects of frametime variance, the statement of not enabling VSync (i.e. VSync Off) for a FreeSync panel applies, since there is no measured benefit with VSync On. Now whether that's true across the board, is up for debate.
