AMD demonstrates Sync Free on-HDMI




AMD at Computex in Taiwan show that his Free Sync technology also works in conjunction with HDMI. A standard monitor would only need new firmware to get this working.

AMD demonstrated Free Sync-over-HDMI at its booth at Computex in conjunction with an AMD R9 2xx card and a monitor with a standard Realtek- TCON. Realtek has corrected the controller firmware and AMD has added support for the technology to its drivers. Moreover, it is a modified protocol for HDMI 1.4a.

The goal of AMD is likely that Free Sync becomes part of the HDMI standard, writes AnandTech. Earlier took VESA Free Sync called Adaptive Sync on the display port 1.2a standard, although implementation of the technology is not mandatory.

Free Sync is a technique for dynamic refresh rate, which ensures that the monitor and video card or APU completely synchronously, so that tearing and stuttering can be prevented. It is therefore an open counterpart Nvidia’s Gsync that a hardware module required for monitors, but not for laptops
