Intel planning to support VESA Adaptive-Sync displays

In a Q&A session at the Intel Developer Forum in San Francisco, Intel Fellow and Chief Graphics Software Architect David Blythe revealed the chip giant is planning to support VESA Adaptive-Sync displays, but wasn't willing to commit a timetable. VESA Adaptive-Sync is the same standard used by AMD's FreeSync so Intel supporting this would give it a big marketshare advantage over NVIDIA's proprietary G-Sync.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem it's going to happen anytime soon as it's believed the feature is not present in Intel's current hardware. If this rumor is correct, Intel will not be able to support it until at least after the Skylake generation of products.
Supporting Adaptive-Sync would be a natural next step for Intel, whose integrated graphics processors stand to benefit tremendously from displays with a more forgiving and flexible refresh cycle. Intel's backing would also be a big boost for the Adaptive-Sync standard, since the firm ships by far the largest proportion of PC graphics solutions.
