AMD is bringing HDMI support to Freesync

Over the last year, AMD has been ramping up its focus on Freesync, an open-platform variable refresh rate technology that allows your PC’s graphics card to control the refresh rate of your monitor, delivering a smoother experience as long as you can keep your frame rate above 45 frames per second.

Until now, both Nvidia’s G-Sync and AMD’s Freesync technologies were only supported over DisplayPort but it looks like AMD is set to bring HDMI support too soon, the company announced today.

HDMI support for Freesync doesn’t have a timetable just yet, but it will be arriving some time next year and work over HDMI 1.4 as well as HDMI 2.0. As for supported graphics card, any GPU that is Freesync capable over DisplayPort should also be capable of it over HDMI as well, so there won’t be any weird compatibility issues to split the market up.

A lot of AMD Freesync monitors already have an HDMI input in addition to DisplayPort, so there are already plenty of options available to users looking to get their hands on a variable refresh rate monitor.

KitGuru Says: This is pretty great news for AMD users. Do any of you currently use a Freesync of even a G-Sync monitor? Would you go back to gaming on a non variable refresh rate monitor? I’ve become quite accustomed to it myself on my personal rig.
