    Default VESA Adds Adaptive-Sync To DisplayPort 1.2a Specification

    Phoronix: VESA Adds Adaptive-Sync To DisplayPort 1.2a Specification

    The VESA association has added "Adaptive-Sync" to the DisplayPort 1.2a video interface specification. Adaptive-Sync is a vendor-neutral way of having a dynamic/adaptive refresh-rate and similar to NVIDIA's G-Sync...

    Default Standards

    This is great news. It means that once DP 1.2a is out on monitors and GPUs that a lot of tearing will go away. I've had all kinds of videos and video games (mostly via Steam) tear quite a lot. On NVidia, AMD, and Intel GPUs. This being part of the standard means that any 1.2a hardware will have to support it, and that's great news for everyone.

    So it begins. A new age of tearless gaming. What will NVIDIA be able to offer more with their G-SYNC compared to this?

    Availability two years earlier than VESA?

    Hold off buying that new monitor until the dust settles!

    +1. DisplayPort 1.3 is coming out soon anyways. It should have this + 8k bandwidth incorporated.

    I actually don't like this feature. Smoothness of animation is achieved by a constant refresh rate. Adaptive refresh rate is going to cause jittery animation.

    Apparently, it actually makes the motion so smooth that you can even read moving text: http://youtu.be/gbW9IwVGpX8?t=11m7s

    I like having a 36- or 40-inch DisplayPort monitor, which is my preferred size for my eyesight. I can do 27" but I will be reading text 2" away from the screen with a bit odd squinting (27" iMac at an Apple store). With a 38.5" monitor, I can read text between 4 to 8 inches away from screen with no magnification at all.

    It will be interesting to see what tear-free gaming is like with DisplayPort 1.2a regardless of any screen size.

    In that case I'm all in for that feature. Bring it on
