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,

Their comparison driver is 15.7.1.

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

Outcomes
