    Freesync doesn't even work the picture along shows that freesync doesn't work and doesnt even exist its just false advertising.
     
  3. You decided that a refresh rate enhancing technology is not real froma picture?

    FreeSync is very real, I've seen it in action and it's awesome (like G-Sync)

    What about TVs? Will they have FreeSync as well? If it's free then there shouldn't be a reason why they won't.

    AMD marketing which caters to the cheap (I'm not excluding myself) looking for anything falsely labeled as free. Nothing in mass volume is free! In this case, Free-sync no more free than G-Sync.

    Free-Sync is literally free. Samsung was going to have to adapt the new standard for 4k anyways, free-sync is really just an added perk for them to market to gamers.

    G-Sync on the other hard requires additional hardware.

    There will still be a premium initially as display scaler manufacturers produce their first FreeSync compatible scalers, but it shouldn't hurt the hip pocket of gamers significantly.


    Free?
    FreeSync is free in the fact you don't have to pay to use it, but you do have to have the compatible hardware to run it - that isn't free.

    Let's see, panel with freesync feature for the same price as the panel without freesync. Nope, that's free feature alright.

    The irony in that statement within this very thread. Free-sync is additional hardware that (according to this thread) all Samsung 4K monitors will support in 2015.

    No im just the type of person who knows freesync is a sham, if it does work then why in the picture does freesync upgrade a monitor?

    does freesync make my monitor upgrade to a more better looking monitor magically or is that just something you guys are gonna try bs me on?
     
  16. Seem like comparing nVidia CUDA vs AMD OpenCL...

    So adaptive sync doesnt work becase of a picture eh?

    so the one organisation that has the only saying about monitors VESA choosed the worst of the two to become a standar as of 1.2a dp

    well you know the ignorance level on the internet is so huge that people actually think nvidia will steamroll vesa and wins with a locked down to a specific combination of gpu's and monitors
    yeap enough internet for today

    you are someone who likes to visit techspot a lot and I believe people who are regulars are actually a bit more tech-savvy then the rest of the "casuals". I expected better from you.

    Man, some of these guys. Do a little research before you troll. Than at least you could seem halfway competent. Some of these comments are so off base it's like you keep forgetting you are replying to the wrong thread.
