    So if a good chunk of the new capabilities are down to the cable, rather than just back-end, will there be any distinguishing factors between the older ones and newer? USB was quite good about this by making the connector interiors blue, made telling the difference really easy between older devices and cables (since not everything was made fatter).

    It's just one of those little quality of life improvements that makes buying replacements or sorting out the ones from the inevitable cable bag a little easier.

    With FreeSync, Adaptive Sync, and now Game Mode VRR Nvidia's GSync is looking increasingly redundant, that's assuming Adaptive Sync and Game Mode VRR are just different names for what's essentially FreeSync.

    If it is basically freesync then that will eventually be a huge boost for that format when the consoles support it. Although that might be 5 years off being as they just refreshed them all.
