It will probably be a year before any monitors come out with the VESA standard Adaptive Sync. You can get GSYNC monitors now.

I used the GSYNC upgrade kit on my VG248QE in January and since experiencing GSYNC I could never go back. Everything is much smoother at all frame rates without stuttering or tearing or any of the added input latency standard VSYNC adds.
I can't wait for non-nvidia support, but it is a long ways out.

Our school computer lab used iMacs without any logins, OS6 or something. I made a million copies of the trashbin and spread them all over the desktop then hid the real one on one of the computers. Someone couldn't figure out how to eject their disk and had to have the teacher come over and help. He thought it was funny too.

Cool story grandpa. You played some shitty game with shitty physics so all games must have bad physics. You used IM instead of voice and video chat so the only form of online communication must be through text. You played some shitty game at a low level so hand eye coordination and reflexes don't matter in any game. You didn't make any friends playing online that you keep in contact with and meet in real life so no one must be able to.

Your failure isn't stopping it from becoming the norm.

We will have solar energy as soon as the utility companies solve one technical problem -- how to run a sunbeam through a meter.
