AMD promises at least 20 monitors with support FreeSync in 2015

At CES 2015, AMD demonstrated its stand on 10 monitors with support for frame synchronization FreeSync – all they have to enter the market in the next month or two. AMD in the person of Richard Huddy (Richard Huddy) promises that by the end of March, the market will be 11 monitors with support for this technology, and the end of 2015 – at least 20 monitors.

It is curious that in addition to the 10 mentioned models at CES also demonstrated another display, which can also be supported FreeSync. We are talking about a 27-inch display with ASUS IPS-panel resolution QHD (2560 × 1440), a response time of 5 ms (gray to gray) and a frequency of 120 Hz. The display supports DisplayPort 1.2a Plus, so theoretically can support FreeSync (ASUS itself this does not say anything). The cost and the exact time to market display unknown.

As the resource TechReport, in order to enable producers to talk about the support FreeSync in their marketing materials, their monitors have to go through the process of free certification from AMD. However, AMD claims that FreeSync will work for anyone, even non-certified monitor with support for DisplayPort 1.2a Adaptive-Sync VESA. It seems that ASUS MG279Q fall into this latter category, although not yet received certification FreeSync directly from AMD.

One way or another, but now we can say unequivocally support for FreeSync 10 display model from Samsung, LG, BenQ, Nixeus and Viewsonic, which, as noted, has been listed in the press release, AMD and demonstrated at its booth during the exhibition CES.
