At CES 2020 in Las Vegas, AMD have announced their re–branding of their FreeSync adaptive-sync technology in an effort to make it easier for consumers to understand what they are getting. Previously we had FreeSync and FreeSync 2, both designed to deliver variable refresh rates for gaming which were free of tearing, give low flicker and low latency. The later FreeSync 2 scheme carried more stringent certification standards and included support for HDR.
While nothing has changed with the actual technology, screens will now be certified under one of 3 schemes, based on 3 levels of support.Continue reading “AMD Announce New Certification Scheme for FreeSync Including New Premium and Premium Pro Levels”
