Xbox One X And S To Add FreeSync 2 Feature

A new visual feature is coming to both the Xbox One S and the Xbox One X.

Both the Xbox One S and Xbox One X will support AMD FreeSync 2, an advanced adaptive sync technology that is present in a lot of gaming monitors which eliminates screen tearing resulting in a much smoother experience when it comes to fast-moving images.

The most common refresh rate is 60Hz but high end gaming monitors can reach up to 120Hz and 144Hz. The issu is that games typically fluctuate framerates and the console struggle to always hold the target FPS.

When refresh rate and framerate are out of sync, screen tearing can occur which can make it appear as if all, or part of, the image is split.

AMD FreeSync is a sync technology that forces the display adjust it’s refresh rate according to the game’s framerate on the fly, so to speak which negates screen tearing.

Doing this requires a display that does FreeSync over HDMI and currently there are no TVs with the tech that a lot of monitors have.

FreeSync 2 s a new version that offers lower latency and HDR support and will soon be compatible with both versions.

Microsoft did not give a specific date when its consoles will be able to use this technology, but stated that it has release window of Spring 2018.
