In addition to new processors and graphic cards, AMD also introduces a new tier system to its FreeSync display technology at CES 2020. The new tiers have been introduced by the company to make it easier for consumers to know what different FreeSync displays can do. At first, the company introduces a new tier called FreeSync Premium.
With the FreeSync Premium certification, monitors will be able to maintain at least a 120Hz refresh rate at 1080p. In addition, there is also a new technology called low framerate compensation (LFC) that comes with the FreeSync Premium that will make sure gameplay remains smooth even your PC can’t render a game at or above your monitor’s refresh rate. This will increase the visual experience while gaming. The company says approximately 300 displays already qualify for FreeSync Premium branding.
On the same move, AMD is rebranding its FreeSync 2 HDR tier. In the next move, any monitor that is capable of outputting an HDR image while also maintaining a 120Hz and Full HD resolution will be eligible for the company’s new FreeSync Premium Pro branding. Monitors with FreeSync Premium Pro will have no tearing, reduced flicker, and lower latency in both HDR and SDR.
With the launch of these new tiers, AMD now has three FreeSync tiers just like NVIDIA has three G-Sync tiers. Now, both AMD and NVIDIA’s highest certifications now explicitly relate to a monitor’s HDR capabilities. This might increase the performance in terms of techs related to AMD. Many new monitors such as ViewSonic’s ELITE XG550 gaming monitor announced at the CES 2020 comes with this high-end tech.
