[AnandTech] AMD FreeSync.

AMD has been relatively silent on the topic of NVIDIA’s variable refresh rate G-Sync technology since its announcement last year. At this year’s CES however, AMD gave me a short demo of its version of the technology.

What?!
So I can run a 4K IPS monitor and still get the benefits of g-sync without being restricted? I really really hope this works out just as good as g-sync, me like.

I'm assuming there needs to be monitor support for this as well. Oh well, at least it's free.

The GPU and the monitor both need to support the VESA variable refresh standard already in existence, but it doesn't require any additional hardware, so it'll likely be a more economical option than G-sync.

If everyone bought AMD, there would be no competition and AMD wouldn't need to do this to gain market share.

AMD knows how counter-attack Nvidia


but i'm still on Nvidia's side for their support of custom resolution and the very handy NVCP

Yeah I'm guessing that's why they were only able to do this with laptop displays. I'm doubtful it'll work on desktop displays as easily.
