The Video Electronics Standards Association (VESA) today announced a major update to its Display Identification Data (DisplayID) standard. The new version 2.0 of this universal display standard simplifies connecting and configuring modern display products, including PC monitors, consumer TVs and embedded displays (e.g., display panels within laptop and all-in-one systems). The result is a best-in-class plug-and-play experience. Advanced capabilities supported include 4K-and-higher resolutions, high dynamic range (HDR), augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), and refresh rates of 120 Hz and above.

Why is it that a standards based Adaptive Sync exists, but only AMD plays along with it? I like and use Nvidia, but this is one thing I do dislike.

I actually bought a cheapo Freesync monitor, but never made use of it. I may just switch to a Radeon because of it.. especially now with Intel possibly in the game.

NVIDIA created G-Sync before external adaptive sync standard was finalized. NVIDIA hasn't and still doesn't support the adaptive sync standard likely because they're trying to recover costs from creating G-Sync. NVIDIA will eventually cave to adaptive sync but when is anyone's guess.

I'm glad this change is coming because of the reasons stated: adaptive sync and HDR capabilities can be discovered and automatically adapted to by the GPU without involving the user changing settings. A shame EDID can't do that but it is a standard tied to DVI which is now something like two decades old. That said, I wish this new standard was implemented in the original DisplayPort specification. I'm hopeful GPU manufacturers can put out a driver update to retroactively update GPUs to work with the new ID system.
