About three months ago I had the honor and privilege to be on the first episode of the rebooted Inside Xbox show with @majornelson, announcing that Radeon FreeSync technology[i] is coming to Xbox One consoles[ii]. It was a pivotal moment for AMD because for the very first time, a source device outside the PC ecosystem adopted a PC gaming feature from AMD.

 

 

 

Users frequently ask us: when are the TVs going to support FreeSync? And our answer has always been, with more or less words – game consoles would be a big driver for the decision.

I’m once again in the fortunate position to have worked closely together with our good friends at Samsung on our next step on the FreeSync journey: as of today, there are over 20 already shipping Samsung televisions that support Radeon FreeSync technology through a firmware update. If you’ve purchased one of the models below, check for a firmware update in your TV menu, and a FreeSync setting will appear as an option.

What does this all mean? It means whether you’re in front of your PC, or in the living room playing a game on your Xbox One console with a TV connected, FreeSync will elevate your gameplay one step closer to pixel perfection.

 

We’re incredibly proud of the wide and rapid adoption of FreeSync and can’t wait to see what other partners may come up with next for FreeSync support.
