Similar to NVIDIA’s change to G-Sync last year, AMD also recalibrated its Freesync certification level at CES 2020, eliminating the old Freesync and Freesync 2 HDR, and introducing the new Freesync, FreeSync 2 HDR Premium and FreeSync Premium Pro.
Among them, Freesync is the most entry-level, only on behalf of the display / display support with A card, DP interface to open the screen tear-proof.
FreeSync Premium’s certification requirements are enhanced, requiring a display/display with a minimum refresh rate of 120Hz, 1080P resolution, and low frame rate compensation technology (LFC).
The highest level of certification is FreeSync Premium Pro, which is actually Freesync 2 HDR in a different way, supporting HDR as a hard indicator.
It is reported that Freesync launched more than six years, as of January it has covered more than 1000 display products. According to AMD, more than 300 of the existing products meet the new FreeSync Premium standard.
Buying a monitor in the future is actually getting easier and simpler, in addition to the form factor, in fact, only focus on VESA’s Display HDR certification and Freesync/G-Sync level.
