Gsync is not an industry standard, it's an nvidia standard. The industry standard is HDMI 2.0 VRR which is already supported on Xbox One X. It's a sort of evolved version of VESA adaptive sync. AMD/ATI chips had a version of this tech 3 generations before nvidia marketed Gsync, although it was originally designed as a power saving technique for laptops(hence AMD's first demo after Gsync launch was using a laptop with the right panel type).

As for things AMD/ATI did first recently, they made the first low level graphics API(Mantle) which became the basis for the industry standard Vulkan API. AMD codeveloped GDDR5 memory and HBM memory, of which nvidia uses both.
