RX Vega FreeSync vs. GTX 1080 Ti G-Sync

Check out this blind test that Kyle over at Hard OCP put on between the RX Vega on a Free sync 3440 x 1440 100hz panel to a GTX 1080TI on a G-Sync 100 hz 3440 x 1440 panel and the two systems where the same builds and the panels were covered so the people testing didn't know which was which. Here a link to the story and link to a youtube video....by the way they were playing Doom!

Re: RX Vega FreeSync vs. GTX 1080 Ti G-Sync

Yeah it is harder to move over after AMD has been getting stomped for so many years. VEGA is still way behind NV in performance/watt. The end justifies the means and both seem equal in experience given and for $300 cheaper the AMD system wins but I can't deal with a 300W card for the same performance of a 180W card. I would bought a free synce monitor like mine (ASUS ROG 3440x1440) if it weren't for the hot video card. I always thought ATI had better looking graphics. Also, I am not one to scrabble over a few hundred bucks. We here continue to spend thousands on PC's lol.

Re: RX Vega FreeSync vs. GTX 1080 Ti G-Sync

What does this actually mean? Doom 2016 is an extremely smooth game on a range of hardware. For example, on my X48/1080 rig at 1440p it feels liquid.

I'd expect the experience to be the same across many configurations.
Its not like the graphics in that game are special, either. The object detail is pretty limited and the CPU doesnt have to do much, its basically a twitch shooter with mostly static background art.

I dont see what this proved?
I didnt watch all the interviews, so maybe I missed the point?

[edit] for instance, heres Techspots performance summary:

It appears as though id Software has done a good job of not just making Doom look great, but also play well on a range of hardware. The game's potential can be fully realized at the mainstream 1080p resolution using rather modest system hardware. Previous-gen hardware plays well, and even the 4 year old Radeon HD 7970 and GeForce GTX 680 provided decent performance.

Did you catch the guy who had 34 years gaming experience? I didn't know games had been around for 34 years lol.

The deal is you can divide this puzzle up to become clearer.

Put the 100Hz monitors against each other = no difference. They are both capable of running at 100Hz. I don't think how they do it matters too much, be it with Freesync or GSYNC.

Next put the cards against one another, the VEGA vs. the 1080 Ti. I believe the 1080 Ti will destroy it because the 1080 can beat it mostly.

I really looked at a lot of nice Freesync monitors. If you remember I was showing you the HP Omen a couple of months ago. It was 34" and 100Hz. I would have got it no questions but there wasn't even VEGA out at the time and I still wouldn't get a VEGA now.
