​Low Framerate Compensation (LFC)

LFC is an exciting new feature of Radeon Software that effectively extends the refresh rate range of many AMD FreeSync™ displays, enabling pristinely smooth gaming down to 30 FPS or less. Many popular AMD FreeSync™-ready monitors automatically use LFC when Radeon Software Crimson Edition (or later) is installed.

 About

In perfect sync

PC gaming has always been a contest between GPU rendering and monitor update rates. Even solutions like “v-sync” don’t always fix jerkiness, and come with associated downsides like reduced mouse responsiveness and lower frames per second. AMD FreeSync™ technology resolves those issues, delivering perfectly smooth gameplay and peak performance. Our groundbreaking hardware/software platform, built upon industry-standard DisplayPort™ Adaptive-Sync, enables AMD APUs and GPUs to directly control the update rate of a compatible monitor. The upshot? The monitor updates the moment a new picture is ready, giving gamers unbelievably smooth, responsive, tearing-free games.1

Putting the Free in FreeSync™

Once again AMD makes gaming history – with the world’s first virtually “zero-cost” technology to enable perfectly smooth gameplay with no costly proprietary hardware, royalties, or licensing costs. That means monitors with AMD FreeSync™ technology deliver perfectly smooth gaming for up to $300 less than comparable displays with competing technologies.2 So even on a budget, you have more cash for what really matters: FPS!
