Is the death of real midrange GSync monitors?

Now that nvidia cards support FreeSync, does this mean manufacturers will stop producing newer products with midrange gsync panels like Acer xb271hu/Dell S2417DG/S2716DG or will similar new monitors continue to be produced? This would be a downer as gsync modules had some advantages over FreeSync.

I don't think g-sync is going away. I'm worried about the prices though. They might get even more expensive if less people buy them. And it's not like there's competition here that would drive prices down. Freesync and g-sync monitors are sold by the same manufacturer, so there's no competition. Freesync will continue to be the cheaper option, while the g-sync option might become more expensive :-/

What's midrange?

Are we talking about price?

Or anything less than 32 inches and not ultrawide?

I mean the low end of GSync Pricewise is 300-500 dollars. Midrange 500-800. And then above?
