Does it mean not officially supported G-Sync Compatibly certified?
So there's no guarantee it'd work with Nvidia GSYNC? Is that correct...
"Supports both Adaptive-Sync with NVIDIA GeForce* graphics cards and FreeSync with AMD Radeon graphics cards *Compatible with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 series, GTX 16 series, RTX 20 series and newer graphics cards"

It supports one of the versions of G-Sync which is the certified compatible. This version does not use a G-Sync module in the monitor.

Take a look at this https://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/nvidia-gsync-monitor-glossary-definition-explained,6008.html#:~:text=Nvidia introduced G-Sync in 2013, and its biggest,G-Sync Ultimate and G-Sync Compatible. What is G-Sync?
I'm confused why the product page won't just say "G-Sync Compatible" as a term.

Honestly thought it meant was a Non-certified monitor otherwise..!?

But scrummaging thru your link, some vendors also seem to do their "own GS certification/testing" - so wondering if the above wording is Nvidia-certified, or actually just Asus-Certified!
 
Monitor manufacturers may claim their monitors are compatible with G-Sync through adaptive sync, but they don't really want to pay NVIDIA to do the certification. And I would expect such from the TUF series since it's the cheaper branding to ASUS's ROG lineup.
