I don't understand why ULMB doesn't work with AMD cards. Why can't it be enabled through the monitor? I don't see why it would require an NVIDIA card unless they put in another vendor lock.

ASUS I think it was said that ULMB becomes disabled when it doesnt get told to allow the feature from the Nvidia drivers. So the feature is part of the GSync module and in the monitor firmware, and selected from the monitor's OSD, but the OSD option becomes grayed out if you switch to a non-Nvidia card. So yes, vendor lock through the driver.

I got to asking this question just today, because I am going to be buying the new Acer 1440p, 144Hz, IPS, GSync panel (that's a mouthful). I was wondering if I happen to switch back to AMD for a generation if I could at least take advantage of the ULMB mode because that is all on the monitor side. Turns out I cant because of this lockout by Nvidia. Id love it if someone could figure out a way to enable the ULMB mode on the Acer XB270HU BPRZ and Asus ROG Swift. Well, and other monitors too but those are the two "big boys" people want to do it with the most.
