    I'm more interested in AMD Powerplay - support for my R9 390 has been broken for the past 3 months. And still no fix in sight.....

          I'm not sure but this was a very clean powerplay clean up that landed in drm-next this evening.

            That's just one reason to always buy a monitor with both DP/HDMI inputs.

              VESA folks certainly do live in the real world, they are the standardisation body for Display Port, the interface meant to be used by computers to display pixel perfect images on monitors.

              HDMI on the other hand is an interface standardized by the Hollywood Mafia to display a blurry version of the input signal so that encoding artifacts are less visible. And only the Hollywood Mafia can standardize Adaptive Sync for HDMI, and they sort of did, HDMI 2.1 supports something similar and they call it "Game Mode VRR (Variable Refresh Rate)".

              So any company that wants to make something similar must make their own XXXSync implementation (especially for HDMI).
              Noone needs to name their implementation differently, it's just that AMD implemented FreeSync before it was standardized and decided to keep the name. When Intel will implement it they will probably just claim support for DP "Adaptive Sync" and HDMI "Game Mode VRR" (unless their marketing department decides it's a good idea to add yet another brand name to this technology to increase confusion).
