I wonder if the ToastyX CRU "Force FreeSync out of HDMI" trick is also workable on NVIDIA.

Also, I have an XG258 and PG258Q here (originally for a different review), I'll give it a test with some 960fps high-speed camera as well as some other testing methodologies.

It will be a shorter XG258-vs-PG258Q that won't be a detailed GSYNC101, but it will help provide insights of GSYNC versus FreeSync from the same drivers. And I'll test out a Radeon too, to have GSYNC-vs-FreeSync.
Sounds good ;)

To temper reader expectations of imminency:

Target is end of February.

With Blur Busters being my full time job nowadays, and a helper is working almost full time on an unannounced non-web project, I've got many concurrent projects in play. Until I hire a dedicated tester to offload my workload, the tests will take more than a few days to appear -- excuse the delay, everyone.
