Battle(non)sense compared the performance of AMD's FreeSync with NVIDIA's G-Sync Compatible. As you may know, NVIDIA revealed this feature at CES, it basically enables GeForce cards to work with screens that support adaptive sync (aka FreeSync). The YouTube channel reports they encountered some interesting results:
You can now use an adaptive-sync aka. FreeSync monitor on an Nvida graphics card without any workarounds or hacks as the Nvidia driver now comes with native adaptive-sync support. So I set out to test if there is any difference between running a monitor in FreeSync, or G-Sync Compatible mode. What did look like a fast and straight forward test turned out to be quite a challenge which lead to some interesting results and raised more questions about adaptive sync monitors on Nvidia graphics cards.
