It's still the case. FreeSync monitors have a range where Freesync can work in. If you go above or below, freesync deactivates. There are 144Hz freesync monitors out there that have a range from 45Hz to 90Hz, for example. Anything below or above will get freesync to deactivate.
G-sync always works with the whole range of the monitor's refresh rate. From 1Hz up to the monitor's maximum refresh rate.
So when buying a freesync monitor, you MUST make sure to check what the freesync range is in order to avoid nasty surprises. Also, it's very important to consult reviews of the monitor to see if there's any overdrive issues while freesync is active. As jorimt mentioned, overdrive in freesync monitors is implemented by the monitor vendor, not by AMD. Overdrive quality can vary a lot there. With g-sync, you always get at least a decent overdrive implementation.
The bottom line is: if a freesync monitor has a large range (at least from 30Hz and up to the monitor's max) and its overdrive implementation is good, then it's not going to be inferior to g-sync in any way. Except for under 30FPS situations, but a decent GPU should be able to keep that from happening. Unless you're playing games locked at 30FPS (not common, but there's a few of those.)
