    blazek

      Good ol` Videocardz got hold of the slides for tomorrow

       

      Up to 20% more performance plus faster start up of games. Looks like an amazing package AMD owners get. Well done AMD

       

      Freesync minimum refresh rates solution

      New flip queue size

      Frame pacing for dx9

      Frame rate cap 30-200

      More performance

       

      They show a good improvement in Fable Legends benchmark,

      Only reviewers were getting 70+ fps at 1080p ultra before as well.

      Their comparison driver is 15.7.1.

       

      Though another slide shows improvement at 4k when compared to the 15.10 beta.

      Whats not to like?

       

      Reduced latency and stutter: AMD was bashed earlier because of this. Fury X also had substantial latency compared to 980Ti.

      Low framerate compensation Freesync: One problem AMD had vs Gsync was that Gsync would be smoother in lower FPS

      More drivers: Self explanatory

      FPS limiter

      Supersampling

      Better gaming performance

      Sexy and clean interface
