    The first monitors that are FreeSync compatible have been available at a handful of etailers already (at least here in the EU), however to enable you are going to need a driver. That driver with its d...

    They didn't left the 7000 series out. I don't believe that the previous cards have the hardware to run it.

    Aside from Crossfire profiles, do you really need a new driver every other week or so? =]

    that is exactly what ALL crossfire users need it for.

    Far Cry 4 has been out for over 105 days with no crossfire profile. If you want to support such a garbage company by continuing to buy their products with garbage support, go ahead.

    So now we only need to wait 5 years until 1) games that support this will be released 2) monitors that support this will be sold.

    Do we know anything about what monitors will support it, or does it work with all games?

    I'm so confused, we don't even have any good review or video showing clear comparisons. Also how it does against Gsync?

    Now if I could get a tv to support this, that would be neat.

    Although actually, I could near guarantee it wouldn't work on muxless laptops.

    New monitors released this year with DP 1.2a capability.


    It should work with any game and it should be less driver depended compared to gsync while doing the same - controlling vblank intervals.

    I believe the recent driver lull May be related to Windows 10. Even NVIDIA have been in a lull, their recent drivers are either beta or hotfixes. Once Windows 10 is released, due to the nature of it being a free update, you will find most of the focus will be on it. They won't be supporting people too stubborn to shift, for free, from Windows 7 or 8.1.

    "All AMD Radeon graphics cards in the AMD Radeon HD 7000, HD 8000, R7 or R9 Series will inevitably support Project FreeSync for video playback and power-saving purposes. The AMD Radeon R9 295X2, 290X, R9 290, R7 260X and R7 260 GPUs additionally feature updated display controllers that will support dynamic refresh rates during gaming."

    Why dont mention the R9 285 ???
