AMD and Samsung have announced support for Radeon FreeSync technology in the new Samsung QLED 55” to 82” TV range, bringing the ultimate, ultra-wide 4K gaming experience to an entirely new format – big screen TVs. The South Korean consumer goods maker is the first company to utilise industry-leading Radeon FreeSync adaptive refresh technology for stutter-free gaming inside a consumer television set.
With High Dynamic Range (HDR) support up to 1000nits and stunning picture quality, Samsung’s QLED displays allow gamers to experience strikingly high refresh rates and low latency on TVs at a variety of price points and screen sizes ranging from 55” to 82” creating a single display for all their home entertainment needs.
Earlier this year, AMD expanded the ecosystem by propelling tear-free gameplay beyond the PC with the launch of support for FreeSync technology in Microsoft’s Xbox One S and Xbox One X consoles in early March. With more than 250 compatible displays offered by more than 20 partners, this is more than double the availability of competing technology.
“We launched FreeSync technology with a mission to end frame tearing and dropped frames, as well as improve the experience for gamers around the world,” said Scott Herkelman, vice president and general manager, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD. “Our users demand the absolute best in visual quality, and that extends to smooth gaming low latency,” said Chu Jongsuk, SVP at Samsung.
FreeSync technology for Samsung’s 2018 QLED TV range is available today for the QLED 55” – 82” models and the NU8000 / NU8500 55” – 82” Series. This will be delivered as part of an automatic Gamer Mode update.
