AMD Officially Launches FreeSync Technology

The much-talked about graphical technology from AMD – FreeSync – is already out. Its privileges over rival solutions might be seen from different angles. To begin with, it dramatically optimizes the gameplay by improving image smoothness, reducing lag time, and eliminating splitting. FreeSync enables the synchronization of screen refresh time with GPU refresh time in real time; hence, images are updated only when the graphical adapter shapes the frame.

To continue, AMD FreeSync, is an open standard which does not require calculations, since it is integrated within an updated DisplayPort 1.2a interface. As distinct from Nvidia’s G-Sync, there is no need to equip the monitor with a dedicated module. Moreover, this technology supports the widest refresh range: 9-240 Hz; therefore, monitors manufacturers receive a tool for a standalone definition of operational limits for a particular model.

Currently, FreeSync is implemented within six graphics adapters and within …
