NVidia G-Sync and vsync in emulation

NVidia's new "G-Sync" (announced yesterday) will also allow stable vsync in emulation without any usual vsync side-effects!

Insted of emulator needing to sync to display's current refresh rate, display is now fully synced to emulator, G-Sync display keeps showing same frame until complete new frame has been received from computer.

Frame rate does not matter anymore, it can freely change between frames. Full vsync-like mode from ~30Hz to over 100Hz is now possible, fully adjustable. No side-effects.

This appears to be really great technology! (But it should have been standard, not yet another manufacturer specific "hack") It seems it should automatically work with any emulator (and games of course) that have fullscreen mode without vsync enabled.
