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.
