AMD FreeSync. Like GSYNC, but cheaper...

It's something AMD showed off at CES 2014, and there are plenty of articles out there about it. But in a nutshell it takes advantage of a VESA standard "variable blanking" which they say will save power by not refreshing the screen unnecessarily. Time will tell how good it will compare to GSYNC as it's still pretty much in the beta stage, but since all panels will support variable blanking, and eventually nVidia will support it as well, one wonders if GSYNC will go the way of HD-DVD...
