During a presentation of AMD’s OEM partners at the Future of Compute event in Singapore, Samsung has announced that all of its Ultra-High Definition (UHD) displays in 2015 will be featuring AMD’s open-sourced FreeSync display feature.
FreeSync is an extension of Adaptive-Sync, a display technology which helps your display sync the frames that are being outputted by the graphics card, without the need of any components inside the monitor itself. All that is required to make this technology work is an AMD Radeon R-series GPU, and a monitor that is DisplayPort 1.2 compatible.
At the AMD Future of Compute event, Joe Chan, Vice President of the Enterprise Business Unit of Samsung announced that five UHD FreeSync monitors will be launched first sometime in March, which include the 23.6 and 28.0 inch Samsung UD590, as well as the 23.6, 28.0 and 31.5 inch UE850 monitors.
Unfortunately, the pricing was not announced during the event, however we expect it to not differ all that much compared to how much these monitors were priced originally.
