    Glad I held off in buying a new G-Sync monitor, but sad I'll now have to start shopping around for a Free-Sync. :p

    It's a smart business move on Nvidia's part.
    Not so much giving in, more like widening the pool for gamers to pick a different monitor.
    For Nvidia to give in would be to allow amd gpu's the ability to utilize g-sync monitors. Or perhaps that is an issue for amd to solve.

    nVidia finds yet another vendor lock attempt fails.

    No surprise.

    They also gave in on the RTX Ray-Tracing being a "hardware feature" when everyone called them out on it citing nVidia's OWN research documents over the past 10 years on the subject. While the latest supplements to the CUDA instruction set substantially improve performance, it was possible to do this going all the way back to the GTX 700 series, which they had first developed it on. It is even possible to do it on other computer shader platforms, such as Vulkan, which other developers have done.
