Xbox One Spring update to bring support AMD FreeSync monitors, more

Microsoft has been supporting Xbox One by introducing new features and now Microsoft has revealed another feature coming to Xbox One X and Xbox One S and that is FreeSync Display support.

For those who may remember, the addition of AMD's FreeSync technology was actually talked about by Microsoft around the time the Xbox One X was launched; so it's good to see the company fulfilling its promise. Freesync-compatible displays are able to sync their refresh rates directly with the Xbox One, helping to eliminate issues like tearing and stuttering, and letting the games run as smooth as possible. While the game console will soon be getting 1440p support with the spring update - now live for testers.

MMD Releases 27inch Philips monitors with Full HD resolution and FreeSync for 189 bucks - 03/01/2018 08:57 AMMMD is announcing three new additions to the Philips E-line of consumer displays.


Many modern TVs have a low-latency "game mode" which turns off any special processing of image and motion that the TV does for movies or other programs.

Microsoft is taking another step towards maximum compatibility for its Xbox consoles. Support for AMD Freesync is coming this spring but low-latency support will not be available until a future update later in 2018, perhaps with the Redstone 5 update for Windows 10, given that Xbox platform and Windows platform software updates are aligned. A number of new TVs this year, such as certain Samsung models, will have the ability to automatically switch to this game mode when it detects a game being played.
