Regular readers of Blur Busters are aware of AMD’s FreeSync answer to NVIDIA GSYNC.

This hardware.fr article confirms that the specification change request has been accepted by VESA, a standards organization. This adds variable refresh rate support to DisplayPort 1.2a (aka FreeSync). Variable refresh rate (GSYNC and FreeSync) in computer monitors greatly improve the motion quality of variable frame rate gaming, by eliminating tearing, stutters, and reducing input lag, as revealed in GSYNC Preview Part #1 and Part #2.
