AMD Bringing FreeSync Support to Catalyst Drivers on 19th March
Ashley Allen / 2 years ago
AMD has announced that it is to release a new Catalyst graphics driver on 19th March, and that the driver will be FreeSync compatible. FreeSync is AMD’s variable refresh rate technology, preventing “screen tears” during gaming.
FreeSync-compatible monitors are now available in Europe, Africa, and the Middle East, the tech is yet to make it to US shores. This latest driver release raises hope that FreeSync will arrive in America soon.
It seems that drivers for AMD CrossFire setups are more difficult to develop, since they are not available until April.
A statement from AMD reads:
“AMD is very excited that monitors compatible with AMD FreeSync™ technology are now available in select regions in EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa). We know gamers are excited to bring home an incredibly smooth and tearing-free PC gaming experience powered by AMD Radeon™ GPUs and AMD A-Series APUs. We’re pleased to announce that a compatible AMD Catalyst™ graphics driver to enable AMD FreeSync™ technology for single-GPU configurations will be publicly available on AMD.com starting March 19, 2015. Support for AMD CrossFire™ configurations will be available the following month in April 2015.”
