Radeon Freesync LFC chart

Low Framerate Compensation (LFC)

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

*Diagram for illustrative purposes only based on expected results on Asus MG279Q with Radeon FreeSync™ technology.

Radeon Freesync vs. HDMI

Radeon FreeSync™ Over HDMI®

Since March of 2015, Radeon™ graphics andRadeon 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 enablesRadeon 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®.

Radeon FreeSync 2 technology – One step closer to pixel perfect smooth gaming

Radeon FreeSync technology introduced tear- and stutter-free gaming to displays for Radeon owners. Radeon FreeSync 2 raises the bar for gaming displays by requiring panel characteristics such as a large dynamic refresh rate range, low latency, and twice the perceptual color space of sRGB for better brightness and contrast. These enhanced properties will enable an exceptional user experience when playing HDR games, movies and other content.

  • Guaranteed support for Low Framerate Compensation (LFC)
  • Support for displaying HDR content
  • Low latency

Footnotes
  1. FreeSync is an AMD technology designed to eliminate stuttering and/or tearing in games and videos by locking a display’s refresh rate to the framerate of the graphics card. Monitor, AMD Radeon™ Graphics and/or AMD A-Series APU compliant with DisplayPort™ Adaptive-Sync required. AMD Catalyst™ 15.2 Beta (or newer) required. Adaptive refresh rates vary by display; check with your monitor manufacturer for specific capabilities.
  2. Based on manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of comparable displays featuring 27”/2560x1440/144Hz TN-type variable refresh panels: the ASUS ROG Swift PG278Q ($799 USD) with NVIDIA G-Sync vs. the BenQ XL2740Z with AMD FreeSync™ technology ($499 USD) as of 30 January, 2015.
