Especially considering we'll be "stuck" with our "top notch gaming notebooks".
    I've wondered that myself. If hardware was the issue and an official upgrade option surfaced I'd throw my money at it.

    So I've been basically lurking here for quite some time, don't own an Asus laptop so I never had a need to register. I own an Aorus X7 Pro, they were also supposed to get G-Sync support. So I contacted Aorus a few times over the last couple of days, and I finally got a meaningful answer from them. They said that it isn't just a matter of giving a driver to enable G-Sync, they said that the laptop also needs a license for G-Sync support (They most likely have to pay a licensing fee to Nvidia for G-Sync support), so to get G-Sync on these new laptops the companies had to pay Nvidia for licensing, even though our old laptops can support G-Sync we never (and therefore the companies never) paid a license for our laptops.

    I was really pissed when I first found out that my brand new laptop won't support G-Sync, but their reason for not supporting it is understandable. They're a company and if they now have to pay a license for all the laptops they previously sold they would lose money.
    With all of that, I'm fine with my laptop not supporting G-Sync as they did have a valid and understandable reason not to support it on their old models. They (Aorus) also said that they forwarded my message to an engineer and he will evaluate whether there is a chance of getting a paid upgrade to the new model in the future.
    I should have seen that answer coming a mile away. The moment you shared Aorus' answer I started poking around for public information regarding FreeSync. Now it all makes sense after reading this fact from AMD's FreeSync page:

    "Unlike the competition, FreeSync offers a better gaming experience with no licensing fees, no proprietary hardware and open standards."

    Well, crap. If licensing is the only issue for G751 owners then I can't help but wonder what's different about the GSYNC enabled counterparts that makes G-SYNC function.

    I have G751JY-T7064D. Is it supporting G-SYNC already? I have 60 hz LED IPS. Or do we have to upgrade new G-SYNC monitor?

    What a shame if Asus doesn't allow G-Sync support on existing G751 models. And then I won't be buying any Asus laptop ANY MORE.

    No difference. It'll be a modded vBIOS, which someone will hack and allow for installation on "non-licensed" models. I just really hope ASUS allows us to pay for the licensing fee, if needed, or has negociated that in their deal with NVIDIA already to support previously sold G751's. I don't want to have to muck around with modded vBIOSes, but I will if I have to! You can always go back to the default one if you do it right and were to need to send the machine in for repair. ASUS support just isn't smart enough to bother checking for that anyway, I'm sure, if there's even a way to check after reverting to the official vBIOS...

    This. I'd pay for the feature to have a supported solution. I can't imagine how that would work, though. And I don't think BIOS/vBIOS changes leave version change information anywhere but who knows.
