How is Radeon FreeSync™ technology different from NVIDIA G-Sync?

​There are three key advantages Radeon FreeSync™ technology holds over G-Sync: no licensing fees for adoption, no expensive or proprietary hardware modules, and no communication overhead. 

The last benefit is essential to gamers, as Radeon FreeSync™ technology does not need to poll or wait on the display in order to determine when it’s safe to send the next frame to the monitor. 

Radeon FreeSync™ technology uses industry-standard DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync protocols to pre-negotiate supported min/max refresh rates during plug’n’play, which means frame presentation to the user will never be delayed or impaired by time-consuming two-way handshakes.
