 AMD FreeSync™ Technology

​​​​No stuttering. No tearing. Just gaming.

AMD FreeSync™ technology puts an end to choppy gameplay and broken frames with fluid, artifact-free performance at virtually any framerate.

Behold the next breakthrough in PC gaming performance. The FreeSync™ technology in select AMD APUs and GPUs resolves the communication issues between processor and monitor, eliminating image tears and choppiness for effortlessly smooth gameplay.

​It's simple to get in sync

STEP 1
STEP 2
  • Choose a FreeSync™-enabled monitor
  • See monitors tab below
STEP 3
VSync Judder vs. Low Framerate Judder

​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.

​AMD FreeSync™ Over HDMI®

Since March of 2015, Radeon™ graphics and AMD FreeSync™ technology have used DisplayPort™ to enable smooth gaming on over 40 compatible monitors. In 2016, AMD aims to make smooth PC gaming even more accessible with a unique extension that enables AMD FreeSync™ over HDMI®. Through close technical collaboration with Acer, LG, and Samsung, a growing range of new monitors are already compatible with FreeSync™ over HDMI®. See Monitors tab below.

 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!
