NVIDIA Demonstrates Issues with Non-Validated FreeSync Monitors at CES 2019

At CES 2019, NVIDIA announced that it was going to support Adaptive Sync monitors that passed its certification process. Out of over 400 monitors tested, only 12 were deemed "G-SYNC Compatible." NVIDIA has created a display at CES 2019 to highlight issues that non-validated FreeSync monitors may exhibit. Gordon Mah Ung of PCWorld went by the display and documented some of the issues that NVIDIA was concerned about.

Nvidia says that not all FreeSync monitors are created equal -- in fact only 12 out of more than 400 are certified to be G-Sync-compatible. Gordon checks out some examples of FreeSync monitors that don't stack up.
