    That sounds good if true!

      Here we are 5 years later.
      What a failure when it took Linux a half decade to get this technology.
      Well, at the time that was niche, but nowdays seems massive - 568 monitor models and growing

      Different ranges, some only supports it via HDMI, other only via DP, some both (but could be at different range too), some have LFC, some doesn't... and FS2 and HDR of course, at least on FS2 is guaranteed to have LFC

        shmerl more resources would always be welcome. But it will never be enough to cover the current approach with multiple compositor implementations. Weston/mutter seems to do okay though.

          Really cool but they still havent fixed the bug where wayland screen just turns off and never comes back. This issue isnt there on Xorg. Anybody knows the bug report for this issue ?

            During 2019 I'd really like to watch video comparison between DXVK games with/without FreeSync/GSync in phoronix.

              Why? Videos have frame-rates of their own and so does the display you watch them on. The experience can't really be properly conveyed through a video. It needs to be experienced first hand to get a proper impression.
