FreeSync displays reduce visual defects during gaming and video playback and also reduces the input latency. The displays range in size between 24 inch to 34 inch, supporting refresh rates of 30 to 144 Hz, and resolutions of 1080p up to Ultra HD.

“Gamers who use FreeSync technology with AMD Radeon R-Series graphics and AMD latest generation of APUs can rest assured that they’re enjoying the best possible experience,” said Roy Taylor, vice president at AMD.
