Last week, we published the hardware spec for Microsoft's next Xbox - Project Scorpio. However, there was one little detail we held back, an aspect of the new console we didn't want to get lost in the noise. In the here and now its applications will be limited, but in the fullness of time, it may help to bring about a profound shift in how displays interface with games hardware. To cut a long story short, Scorpio supports AMD's FreeSync - and the upcoming variable refresh rate support baked into the next-gen HDMI 2.1 spec.

A lot more in the link.

[edit]

I don't know why a mod changed the title to provide less information. What I pointed out in the title before the change is that Scorpio and Xbox One will support VRR and only Scorpio will support HDR.

This is making me think hard about the Scorpio as well. I still hope Scorpio supports 1080p 120hz TVs from the start because I'm not as interested in achieving 4k 60Hz but VRR support addresses some of my concerns about trying to push a performance target that demanding.

Well that just sealed Freesync, its not going to go away now.

Not only that, it'll support Freesync2 so we should see HDR + low latency Freesync. Only thing we need now is panel makers to get on board!

Cool thing about the open implementation is that Nvidia could also end up using it later on, for free. If the open standard gets widely adopted it's a win-win-win for everyone. Only losers are shareholders in Nvidia, that's it.

Nvidia wins either way because they could adopt both strategies. A good and best version of VRR if you will.

Yes because Nvidia would love to spend resources on a soon to be dead standard.
