[Hardware.fr] AMD FreeSync ': Proposal adopted by VESA - Page 20

post #191 of 422
It is out, but this is not some kind of "device" you can install on your existing display.

In some time new displays and graphic cards start to support "free sync" as a form of "Refresh rate", and it will be available in your windows/linux/etc. You have just to watch closely specifics of displays, TVs whatever. It will take some time, since this affect ALL companies which are cooperating as VESA.

Short to say, in some months display manufacturers will implement this in EVERY new display as it is going to become standard feature.

No, that's not how it works. it's not that simple.

Just look at the latest driver from nvidia , they claim it s better then mantle .
Of course it s , because they messed up with the image quality , look 2 screenshot of the same thing with old and new drivers , it s shocking .
It makes you game so ugly , remove most of shadows, mess with the blacks and obviously the texture quality is lower by a lot.
They already both did that in the past but they are not done with that yet it seems , pathetic

wow........just wow....

By "out" you must mean that some display can use it, right? Which one?

The ok from vesa is out with 1.2a which allows AMD or any other manufacturer to alter the standards in place within monitors by way of external media that is not available yet.

A reply from AMD at 6th March when I asked if any of the currently available drivers support it. At that time 14.3 Beta driver was already out I believe. So if they would implement it I would not expect it before Q3 2014 earliest in the drivers.

"Hello, ....,

Your service request : SR #{ticketno:[...]} has been reviewed and updated.
Response and Service Request History:
None of the drivers can support FreeSync for now, and sorry, we really don’t have the information for when it will be available to support, so can’t give you a certain answer, thanks a lot for your concern.
In order to update this service request, please respond, leaving the service request reference intact.
Best regards,
AMD Global Customer Care"

The question was: Question (Click to show)
Quote:
you know if the current AMD drivers support already FreeSync and if they do how can I enable/disable it? Or was the demo done on some internal driver version which is not part of the public driver yet?

I know it's supposed to work only with select laptop screens atm which support some fancy power saving feature and are driven over eDP. I have jury rigged some ipad 3 screens to work with my PC and would be interested to testing if I can see any difference. Granted the TCon in these is eDP 1.1a and I'm not quite sure if variable sync rate is supported on these but as I already have them then it would be worth a try if drivers already support it.

I presume it should be under CCC/Gaming/3D Application Settings/System Settings/Frame Rate Control if it's available ? If it is then my current version does not have it (13.12 is the current version for me) as I have only the usual four options of Always ON/OFF and ON/OFF unless application specifies.

This one:

http://www.toshiba.com/us/computers/laptops/satellite/Click/W35Dt-AST2N01

You would need to find out how to activate it on current AMD drivers, though. As far as I know, they haven't provided the interface to toggle it on yet.

The question was: Question (Click to show)

You only got an answer from Service Request, that's not pretty reliable.

Here is what AMD stated at CES according to Anand Lal Shimpi from AnandTech:

"In the case of the Toshiba Satellite Click, the panel already supports variable VBLANK. AMD’s display engines have supported variable VBLANK for a couple of generations, and that extends all the way down to APUs. The Satellite Click in question uses AMD’s low cost Kabini APU, which already has the requisite hardware to support variable VBLANK and thus variable display refresh rates (Kaveri as well as AMD's latest GPUs should support it as well). AMD simply needed driver support for controlling VBLANK timing, which is present in the latest Catalyst drivers. AMD hasn’t yet exposed any of the controls to end users, but all of the pieces in this demo are ready and already available."

The environment is generally slow paced on those low latency syncing technologies.

It might open up a bit when all the 24'' and 27'' gsync monitors that are not ASUS are out by the end of 2014.

We really have to all help promote these technologies because really, it's one of those cases 90% of the people have no idea they need to use it, but they do need to use it.

to Hasty:
I was going to say something like "desktop displays usually does not support, there are some laptop displays which do" and "its already in catalyst gpu driver but not exposed to users", but thanks anyway. smile.gif

According to info from Anandtech and first post here I thought its already confirmed by VESA, but when I re-checked it again some techportals were much more skeptical in this matter. Usually they had "mixed" info. Some were claiming that its AMD propietary technology which is not true.

back to the point:

Technology for Freesync is here for few months or years, but nobody ever asked to implement it and expose to gamers, until Nvidia came with Gsync (which I seriously dislike). I am much more fan of static FPS (like 60).

At time when Gsync was release I had quite extensive discussion with my colleague regarding "60Hz with 60FPS is ideal scenario, why would somebody sync display according to low FPS and pay a lot of money for special and expensive hardware?". He simple answered that "you just need do re-code graphic driver, most of displays are already prepared". In about month it was announced.
