AMD FreeSync™: All about it, Premium vs Premium Pro, and more.

Imagine diving into your favorite game and enjoying flawlessly smooth, gorgeously rendered images! Sounds amazing, right? Even if you’re new to gaming, you’ve probably heard the buzz around AMD FreeSync™ and how it’s transforming the gaming experience. We all crave the thrill of playing games with stunning, fluid visuals, so why not consider adopting this game-changing technology yourself?

Before getting into the details of AMD FreeSync™, let’s explore the keys to elevating your gameplay.

First, the PC monitor: it has a refresh rate, meaning the number of times the image updates on your screen every second, measured in Hertz (Hz). Have you already seen 144Hz or 280Hz? This indicates how smooth your visuals will be. Then there’s your graphics card, the GPU, which mentions Frames Per Second (FPS) or the number of frames it pumps out each second.

AMD FreeSync™ syncs your monitor’s refresh rate with the FPS from your GPU. Without this sync, the GPU may send more frames than your monitor can handle, causing annoying screen tearing. The improvement that AMD FreeSync™ brings is like driving through heavy traffic without any delays: you reach your destination smoothly! That’s why having this tech makes such a difference.

What is AMD FreeSync™?

AMD FreeSync™ is a revolutionary technology that reduces or even eliminates annoying issues like tearing, ghosting, and stuttering. To take full advantage of it, you’ll need a monitor that supports it, with a horizontal resolution under 3440 pixels and a refresh rate of at least 144Hz. Investing in a monitor like this ensures you get the smoothest, most immersive gaming experience possible. Don’t miss out on reaching the next level of gaming!

A monitor certified with AMD FreeSync™ will synchronize its refresh rate with the framerate of FreeSync-compatible graphics cards, using standard connections like DisplayPort and HDMI. When choosing a monitor, keep these two key points in mind: first, a higher refresh rate means better image performance and smoother gaming; second, always ensure that the monitor supports AMD FreeSync.

Upgrade your setup for the ultimate gaming experience!

What is the difference between FreeSync Premium and FreeSync PremiumPro?

AMD FreeSync™ Premium is dedicated to gamers who seek an exceptional experience. This technology enhances FreeSync, resulting in smooth, tear-free gameplay for serious gaming enthusiasts.

But the excitement doesn’t stop there. For those who desire a truly professional experience that delivers unparalleled adventures, AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro is a must-have that supports HDR technology for out-of-this-world gaming. Do you know why this specific HDR feature is so important? Because unlike traditional HDR pipelines, all specifications go from the display directly to the PC, allowing games to map colors on the screen without intermediate steps. For optimal performance, these technologies require a maximum refresh rate of ≥ 200 Hz for horizontal resolutions under 3440 pixels, and a maximum refresh rate of ≥ 120 Hz for resolutions 3440 pixels and above.

Are you already dreaming like a pro? We can make your dreams even better with the EVNIA Gaming Monitor 32M2C5500W: a 1000R curved display with 240Hz refresh rate for excellent performance at high speeds, HDR400, USB-hub connectivity for greater ease and flexibility, and all the fireworks of AMD FreeSync™ Premium Pro.

Should I enable AMD FreeSync™?

Yes! You just need to check that your monitor has the right configuration to take full advantage of AMD FreeSync™. It’s easy to do: navigate to the On Screen Display (OSD) menu or Settings on your display monitor—this may vary depending on your model—and ensure that AMD FreeSync™ is enabled. This will allow you to enjoy the best gaming experience available with smoother graphics and reduced screen tearing.

Keep in mind: always check not only that your monitor supports AMD FreeSync™ technology but also take a look at your GPU (which we will discuss later). This addresses a question that often arises.

Is FreeSync good for gaming?

Absolutely! When it comes to gaming, images are everything. You rightfully want an experience that engages your sight and emotions. What you see is paramount, and compromise is simply not an option.

So yes, a technology such as AMD FreeSync™ that eliminates or reduces artifacts is what you need to fully focus on what matters: your enjoyment. 

Can I use FreeSync with nvidia?

AMD FreeSync™ technology requires a FreeSync compatible GPU. Nvidia solutions that support DisplayPort Adaptive-Sync are expected to work with AMD FreeSync, but it is always good practice to check the details with your GPU vendor. One more piece of good news is that the highlighted EVNIA Fast IPS Gaming Monitor 27M2N5500 is certified with AMD FreeSync™ and is also NVIDIA® GSync® compatible.
