During an interview with PC Perspective and AMD spokesperson confirmed the news that AMD will be changing the name of its FreeSync 2 technology to FreeSync 2 HDR. The AMD representative further clarified what specs are required for a monitor to receive FreeSync 2 HDR certification support for at least HDR600, coverage of 99 percent of BT.709 and 90 percent of the DCI P3 colour spectrum. Watch the interview embedded below to learn more about what this means for the way ahead and monitor FreeSync 2 certification.
In basic terms for a monitor to be certified FreeSync 2 HDR the technology needs to harness low-latency, high-brightness pixels, excellent black levels, and a wide colour gamut to display High Dynamic Range (HDR) content. Previously Scott Herkelman, vice president and general manager of gaming, Radeon Technologies Group, AMD explained more about the new technology. “Gamers have spoken and they’ve made FreeSync the overwhelming choice and definitive industry standard for smooth, stutter-free gaming. Radeon FreeSync 2 technology is the first of its kind that combines HDR support with dynamic refresh rate technology, and does it in a seamless, plug-and-play manner that improves gaming quality automatically when the right content is present.”
