Nvidia has announced its graphics card drivers will start supporting monitors using the VESA DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync protocol. The protocol powers AMD's FreeSync technology.


According to a recent press release, Nvidia will start expanding the "G-Sync ecosystem" by certifying monitors that don't include the proprietary hardware. This means that Nvidia's GeForce driver will start supporting FreeSync displays.

The company stated it will start testing monitors to "improve the experience for gamers". Those that pass validation tests will be G-Sync compatible and enabled by default in the driver.

However, monitors that are not yet certified or considered not to meet specifications may still be supported as gamers will be able to toggle compatibility on regardless of the outcome of the company's validation tests.

Being able to utilize FreeSync monitors with Nvidia graphics cards will mean that gamers will be able to get similar experiences with significantly cheaper hardware.

Support for G-Sync compatible monitors will begin on January 15, 2019, with the launch of the first 2019 Game Ready driver.
