When a horizontal break appears during a session of gameplay, it is always unpleasant! Recently, AMD has introduced FreeSync technology to bring you the smoothest possible experience. The benefits of FreesSync have been discussed on social media and online computer communities for weeks. You may feel curious and wonder how this cutting-edge technology can change your gaming life? Well, let's get to look what FreeSync is!


What is AMD FreeSync?

 FreeSync is AMD’s latest innovation to solve the problem of screen tearing, juddering and stuttering while you are playing games or watching videos. This new technology enables graphics cards to synchronize the refresh rates with the frame rate of a compatible monitor. FreeSync has been built on the industry standard ‘Adaptive Sync’ which provides communication between monitor and GPU to alter the screen refresh rate in alignment over a VESA 1.2a DisplayPort link. With the leverage of Display Adaptive sync protocols,  you will experience the benefits of smooth and tearing-free  gaming. There will not be any stuttering under FreeSync operation because the refresh rate is matched to the creation of new frames. In addition, the development of the Adaptive Sync industry standard provides open resources which don't require any licensing fees or contracts to participating parties. Therefore, the manufacturing cost will be less and you will spend less budget to enjoy playing games and watching videos without any tearing and stuttering problems. FreeSync also supports a wide variety of potential refresh rate ranges which allows you to select a suitable model for your special gameplay.
